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.

So the job itself is ok, but that’s only if your left to do it.
Senior management seem to manage by fear, constant threats about performance and humiliating comments made in front of peers.


The senior management need to move with the times and maybe the company will do the same.


Senior management have no care for people and make it known to those colleagues whos face doesn’t fit. As a manager your opinion doesn’t seem to count you are forced to performance manage the team regardless of the situation.


Many hurtful and sexist comments are made on a daily basis in what seems to be a ‘lads’ club.


Not once did I receive a thank you or well done...the senior team doesn’t understand how far this can go.


The company itself is very behind the time, poor systems, poor stock management routines, poor delivery, poor quality products, poor customer service.


It’s a shame as the people who work for magnet all really want to do a great job.

They promise the earth when employ you, but deliver on none of their promises.

The training for new starters only focus' on how amazing the company is. It doesn't teach you how to do your job, or maximise the profitability of your store.


Regional team say there are there to help, but in reality are only interested in finding fault.
Pros
company car
Cons
lack of support, poor training.
