Would of give less than one star if i could
Customer (Former Employee) –  Cockermouth, Cumbria14 September 2018
If you want to be abused by a manager then apply for Greggs. You will be bullied... picked on... made to feel rubbish about yourself. If you want to have no life at all apply. 13 hour shifts when she feels like putting you on. Changing your shifts mid way through. Don't do it!
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Horrible manager

Horrible place to work
Sandwich Artist (Current Employee) –  Jarrow31 August 2018
Management are aloud to bully staff and nothing gets done!
They can drop your hours in the flick of a light.
Management expect work to be your life.
Never get a full week end off.
Can only get 1 day off a week some times
Only get paid till the end of your shift even if you stay half an hour later to clean up, if it's not clean because you leave on time you get pulled in for a meeting.
Manager tells staff who they can and carnt talk to.
Doing management jobs and don't get a thanks
Pros
Nothing at all if you get bullied
Cons
HR aloud managers to bully staff and blackmaile them

Subway Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Bradford25 August 2018
I was brought to EuroGarages as a supervisor and all the staff I have worked with contributed to a good and strong team. Things get tough at busy lunch times but with good team work we always catch up and fulfil the daily duties we are supposed to.

There's so much more to this job than making sandwiches.
Pros
Quarterly bonus scheme, minimum living wage

Great people but mostly under staffed
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Rhyl, Denbighshire13 August 2018
I’ve been with this EG now for a year. I love working for this company the staff are great, most of the managers are friendly a lot of people will be there to help you out if you need something. I’ve read a lot of reviews on here giving the company a bad name but from what I’ve experienced most of the staff are there to work hard and they all seem very genuine. At times we can be understaffed but we usually just knuckle down and get on with it! Wouldn’t completely cross off EG from your job search there are some good opportunities to be made that you might miss!
Pros
30% staff discount (at all sites) and free drink on shift
Cons
Understaffed at times

avoid at all cost
Cashier/Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  south wales7 August 2018
absolute joke of a company to work for, managers are inexperienced, area managers are just as bad. No breaks if you are ill and cannot go into work you are expected to find your own cover or you have to do the shift.

Do not work for EG
Manager (Former Employee) –  Midlands18 July 2018
EuroGarages are always looking for staff because they don’t treat the staff they have correctly. You always feel pressured and you can never do enough. Everyone is overworked and pushed to their limits. They always say things are going to change and they never do. There is never enough people allowed on shift due to crazy tight budgets. You rarely get your break. Many people in stores are on the sick due to stress from the job.
Wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone. It’s a very ‘clicky’ company to work for and if you are not in the ‘click’ you will be bullied out.
Pros
Made good friends
Cons
Everything

Not a great place to work
Bakery Assistant (Current Employee) –  Tyne and wear17 July 2018
First few months were fine, shifts were good then after a while customers got ridiculously rude and mean, had to go on sick for a few weeks and didn’t get paid, even with a sick note from my doctor. Contract was reduced in half with no warning, other members of staff are lazy and don’t like to work.
Treated like complete idiots by 90% of the customers. Shifts are ok, only around 4 hours, pay is nothing special just basic minimum wage.
Pros
50% discount on food, free hot drinks on shift
Cons
No sick pay, rude customers

Not worth a star
Customer service/cashier (Former Employee) –  Runcorn5 July 2018
4 months working there nearly finished me off, gave me osteoarthritis. On my feet for 8 solid hours without a break, dealing with a constant stream of customers during a day shift. I was mostly on nights & it wasn't much better. The staff & manager use the group Whattsapp to name & shame if you do something wrong or something isn't done so every one knows who's done something wrong, it's bullying. No support from colleagues & being told how useless you are by the manager. So many health & safety issues including a massively overstocked stock room. Worst 4 months if my life, very stressful. Horrible place to work. Avoid like the plague.
Pros
Round the corner from home
Cons
Too many to mention

nice workplace
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Stalybridge, Greater Manchester11 June 2018
working with euro garages gives you opportunity to learn new things and gain your experience with the customers and in any other work in daily bases. the hardest part of the job is to manage everything in short hours but if you working with nice staff then hours is just running, you have to be prepared on anything because there is different customers and you have to know how to deal with them not being rude because customer is always right that you have to bear in mind, work is nice if you got your skills and common sense
Pros
bonuses
Cons
long and short hours

Head office is a great place to work
HR (Current Employee) –  Head office11 May 2018
The Head office is a lovely place to work. Both CEO's are approachable and engage with staff. There are alot of opportunities to progress.

Work environment is very nice, modern offices.

Can only speak from experience, but management seem supportive.

Flexible working hours and you are not micro managed.

Im not sure what the cons are, every bad thing I can think of is something you can expect but are manageable such as no staff discount in stores, sometimes parking can be difficult (additional spaces have been acquired recently to help this).
Pros

Cons
