I joined Poundstretcher with high hopes of progressing my retail career. You will constantly be told that this great promotion is going to be available and one of you WILL get the job, only for them to have you work at overload capacity speeds, and bring someone completely unsuitable in as your superior. Managers are brought in with as little as two weeks training, retail and store knowledge well below the average employee already in store. Management is a total disaster, wages are poor, your extra efforts won't be appreciated. One of the worst places I've ever worked!
