Store Assistant (Former Employee) – Bristol, Bristol – 22 June 2018

Sales assistant (Former Employee) – Kingston upon Hull – 16 June 2018
Took on part time temporary work at poundworld alongside college which they knew about. I was working ridiculous hours (30-40hrs) a week, not including my hours at college. Long shifts, hardly any break and was left to feel very unwelcome.
It wasn’t work experience and I got paid for doing such a terrible job
Tasked with some interesting projects in a busy office.
IT Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Normanton, West Yorkshire – 14 June 2018
Some days can be hectic depending on performance issues with some IT systems. Maintaining quality of store internet communication quality is one of the critical issues that has to be resolved as fast as possible. Learning is mainly achieved through hands-on experience or self-motivated research. The new head-office environment is reasonably pleasant and tidy with an ample-spaced canteen and vending facilities.
Store Manager (Promotion) (Current Employee) – Brighouse – 14 June 2018
No day is the same, one day I might be training staff, other days I can be filling shelves. During my time I have learnt how to manage a team, good understanding of KPI tracker, plan and finish rota's, a good understanding of stock control and loss prevention, store orders, how to do investigations and disciplinary's, merchandising. The hardest part of the job for me is when I have to work in another store to cover as I feel l want to put my effort into improving my store. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is when I beat last years sales. Another thing that I get enjoyment out of is when I do promotional or season change merchandising, this is something I take exceptional pride in , making my shop look good.
Stock Controller/driver (Current Employee) – Wakefield – 12 June 2018
day to day running of stock control has learnt me a lot about stock holding and minimizing loss also management and operative communication is good which makes makes the warehouse environment a far better place especially when the work load is more intense.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Dewsbury, West Yorkshire – 11 June 2018
Horrible place to work everyone talks about others and puts their work on you if you are the new staff while the other employees talk and don't do their work. They always laugh behind the customers back. Just not worth working there but then again there myte be some shop that are alright I guess.
SALES ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands – 11 June 2018
I’ve worked at poundworld for a year and during my time I’ve learned the ways of retail and what’s expected of me at poundworld. I learned how to speak and handle difficult customers. I also learnt how to make the shop floor look attractive for customers. I’ve encountered some problems with the management and solved them with respect and politeness. Overall I didn’t enjoy my time at poundworld and want to find a career which beat suits me.
warehouse operative (Current Employee) – Normanton – 7 June 2018
Fair managers, free on site parking, HR very helpful if you have any issues. Good set of friendly people to work with, As long as you keep your head down and get on with your job you find it pretty easy enough to hit bonus when picking.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Rotherham, South Yorkshire – 1 June 2018
Worked for Poundworld for 8 years full time at first then went to partime after having a baby.. was enjoyable at times! it all changed when the wage budget got introduced leaving the shop with hardly any staff some days! you had to basically split yourself in half most days covering both shopfloor/ ordering stock and till work! Manager happily worked around me and my flexibility and the pay was weekly!
SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Armagh, County Armagh – 21 May 2018
A typical day at work required me to arrive on time and in full uniform. I would be required to then either work on tills and/or stack the shelves. I learnt how hard it is to actually work in such a busy environment however everyone worked together as a team to keep things under control. The management are friendly and always try to help. I enjoyed dealing with the customers.
a typical day could involve a variety of tasks, manning the till, stocking the shelves, unloading deliveries and helping customers.There was a lift but it was broken and never got fixed, so working there was very physical and would sometimes lead to members of staff getting injured.
