Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Huddersfield, West Yorkshire – 9 July 2018
a typical day is going in stacking shelfs for 4-5 hours then going home poor management, hardest part is dealing with rude customers enjoyable part is the atmosphere with others at your level and some managment
this is an unhappy ununderstadning place to work. management don't understand personal issues there is a lot of favoritisim in the store booking holidays is difficult . inconsiderate unkind managements disrespectful expect too much off u no give or take.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Liverpool – 6 July 2018
When I first started working in Home Bargains it was great, all the training was done during working hours, I learned a lot of new skills and made some good friends. Ultimately, however, the jobs began to take its toll as there was little variety in the day and customers were occasionally very rude. The management was effective overall but could be a little impersonal at times, particularly the higher-ups. The low pay for younger people (who are expected to do the same work) means this job is unsustainable for students.
Nice discount, Good friends, Good hours
Low pay, monotonous work, difficult to get time off
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Walsall – 28 June 2018
Very hectic and fast paced work place, management can be very rude as well as the majority of customers who shop here, the pay wasn't the best, and i didn't get a pay rise when i was supposed to for the last 2 months i worked there.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Salford – 26 June 2018
when I worked at the Dewsbury branch I had a great time, I made friends, earned enough money to live well and never really had a bad experience, however when I transferred to the Salford branch that sadly changed. this branch was run poorly.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Ormskirk – 18 June 2018
Management uncaring about personal circumstance or health; Physical or mental. Staff treated as dispensable. Easy job, easy to get hours if wanted but if you say you are unable to do extra when asked management will make your job difficult in other ways. Only real plus to the job is the 20 hour contract offered and wage slighlty above minimum. Staff in stores are great, hardworking and friendly, great atmosphere.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Rotherham, South Yorkshire – 13 May 2018
Working on a 16 hour contract. Fill shift start at 9 and don't have a end time you finish when all the order is put out on the shop floor. 15 min break on a 4 hr shift. Ive never worked 16 hours a wk on fill shift. Till shifts are 4 hour shifts which isnt too bad at least you know when you are finishing work. On fill also one fill shift member is nominated as the till runner if they need something you go. And another is for the extra Till. Always shorts staffed. No cover for staff on holidays sick or maternity.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Litherland – 10 May 2018
A typical day would consist of working on tills, the shop floor and also helping customers. This workplace is fast-paced and constantly on the move. In this job, communication skills are developed throughout the roles in this job. Most enjoyable part of the job - engaging with other members of the team and learning new aspects of the job.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Keighley – 3 May 2018
I have enjoyed my time at Home Bargain hence it has developed my as an individual. Whilst working at Home Bargains my communication and customer service skills have improved. I want to challenge myself and progress into a company which will showcase my skills and a place where I can progress throughout the company. The most enjoyable part of my job was greeting and meeting customers also making the customers experience good at the retail store. I loved working as part of a team and tackling situations efficiently.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Blaydon-On-Tyne – 3 May 2018
A typical day at home bargains usually involves, serving customers on the till, replenishing the stock and ensuring that the shop is tidied to the best of ability. What you learn at home bargains if all the required skills to become a better individual, sales assistant or higher such as supervisor or even management. You learn the health and safety management of the store, and how to give the best customer service. The workplace culture is great, very friendly, helpful and happy environment. The hardest part of my job is letting a customer down, when they ask if we have a product and we don't its very difficult to tell them in case there is any conflict caused which may also be hard. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I can go to work, be myself, see my work colleagues and get my head down and do the best possible job that I can.
Lead Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Gloucestershire – 29 April 2018
currently work as a lead sales assistant. role is great as you do learn a lot. however the senior management aren't the best. they treat you like nothing some days and the next their friend! They are constantly nagging at you to get certain jobs done in a 4 hour shift. (sometimes this isn't possible). The way that some rules are for one of the management and different for others. We don't all get treated equally. This needs to be addressed. It's all about the management structure rather than the company itself
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Wolverhampton, West Midlands – 25 April 2018
Management don’t appreciate staffs hard work and always find something to complain about. Other than that it’s not a bad job. Staff are friendly. If your on a close you Sometimes have to stay longer than your finish time.
10% discount, friendly staff, overtime, pay isn’t too bad
