I left Matalan after just two months because the management are terrible, I had no support what so ever which was crucial for me because I have Dyslexia but clearly didn’t care about that regardless of telling them when I was first employed. You get customers having a go at you because they need to have a Matalan card then have the management try to say “You shouldn’t push them into getting a card but they need one” like how does that even work? It’s a good place to gain experience from a first-time job but they literally give you no hours and no training. Oh and expect to get left on the tills by yourself serving queuing customers because no other staff can be bothered to help you.

Its a great company if you enjoy fast paced, customer facing work. No day is ever the same as the company are very reacting to sales but that is why it is interesting.

You should wear what you'D expect the staff to look like. You should wear some plain black work pants and shoes with a polo t-shirt or plain black T-shirt. A blazer to match possibly. This is what I wore to my interview.
