Exciting fast paced business, hard work but enjoyable. Trade: meet new people everyday but build relationships with regulars. Showroom: professional, rewarding to see the end product.

The job role itself was enjoyable, the work load was A LOT, too much at times and could cause a lot of stress. Unfortunately, the team were very clicky and even though you work along side them and try to help each other out some would happily find reasons to get you into trouble and you always have to watch your back, even if what your doing is what everyone else does there will be some who will try and turn it around. This was largely what made me leave, can't be done with working with 2 faced people.

If your face fits or you have 'pals' their you'll be ok, apart from that the place is ran like a youth club.
Would not recommend working there.

Lazy and 'clicky' warehouse so called managers and supervisors.

Drinking and drug culture.

Very corrupt no advancement unless related to other members of staff within the company. Interviews are done in the highland laddie pub. This is a drug and drinking culture amongst family

Plenty of opportunities to get involved in all areas of the business. Assistance and development opportunities are always at hand.

A great environment, always plenty of activities going on outside of work.

Chew you up for ages saying you'll get a contract do loads of overtime and have one say off over personal family matters and get sacked after you worked 6 days a week for them. Place is a pure joke management is all over the place. Not bad stepping stone of a place bit that's it

I worked for magnet kitchens in the showroom department as a housekeeper my role was to maintain a high standard in keeping the show room and shop floor spotlessly clean making sure showroom displays were sparkling clean to attract customers to this area I dealt with customers general questions and enquires as best as I could but unfortunately things took a wrong turn for me due to family issues so I had to terminate my role with them.

A typical day in my previous roles, were varied, at times were very demanding but in that industry things move very quickly and that is to be expected.

I have learnt about various parts of the business, as my roles have always involved speaking to other departments.


Management on the main are relaxed and approachable.


They work culture I found was good, it wasn't a chore to get up and go to work.


The hardest thing about the job, was how demanding it could be to hit targets or get out orders


Most enjoyable part was working with some great people in a rapidly growing business.
Pros
They like to promote from within the business
Cons
Depending on the department, it can be very demanding
