I worked as Branch Manager in Cambridge for 1 yr, believe me it's the worst company I've ever worked for in my life, I did 3 months with no day off, very difficult to employ new staff as it's only minimum wage and your given not enough hrs to cover the store, you start at 5am and your on your own, not very safe at all, then I had 20 paperboys/girls & what a nightmare that is!!!
The first 3 hrs in the morning I was on my own, as not enough hrs, you get several boxes of magazines that you have to scan in, then there's the newspapers to sort, yr lucky if u get a break all day, I've seen many Mccolls stores close and that's a good thing, it's a terrible company that's why they always advertise, the one I worked in finally closed down, another Con is that they pressure u with link sales, basically every customer u have to ask them if they want to buy a certain product, very annoying for customers and us as employees.
Beware of stock loss from magazines, it was a nightmare for every manager, u have to put regular claims in as Smiths mess up and when u have a stock take, the chances are you will get the sack, they also set u up with age related sales & if u fail they investigate u and will sack you...
They will employ anyone
Long hrs, low pay, no staff, dirty stores
