Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Guildford, Surrey27 December 2017
Got to be careful of certain people around you it's best to concentrate on your own responsibilities and not get involved with anyone gossip.

Some management are snobs and will shout out your failures and whisper your success. They are very quick to put you down but very slow to help out.

Customers are a pain in the backside and treat you like your a nobody expecting you to give them a solution to all their life problems including ones who's wife's cheated on them with their plumbers.

Only minimal recognition and they make you work constantly with no pauses.

Managers will not give a monkey if your hours conflict with anything outside of work.
Pros
20% off discount
Cons
Too much workload, work hours may not balance with life style also underpaid

You would have a laugh with your co workers aswell as working hard. The store gets very busy so you will have to time manage and work as a team.

Pure exploitation, biased management ideal for brown-nosers
Warehouse operative and cashier (Former Employee) –  Guildford23 August 2013
This company hired many people to start the new store in Guildford. It started in winter and people were expected to work from 6am to 8pm at the start.
At first they were so cheap they did not bother to heat the wearhouse for weeks when it was freezing and snowing outside.
They also were cheap enough to not hire a cleaner for the toilet and expecting staff to take turns doing this.

Once the first month of seriously long hours and hard work was done and the store is up and running, they started firing half the staff for almost made up reasons like not looking motivated enough.
One person got fired for doing something which the manager & supervisor was also doing and was overlooked during the start up period with long hours.
The contract they gave allowed them to fire people before going on to the second month. So it was set up to exploit from the start.

Supervisor did next to nothing the whole time and stood around with the workplace "suck up" who started acting like part of management.
Also management always gave preferental treatment to some by letting them work at the front of the store.
Pros
Some good co-workers
Cons
exploitative contract & biased management

I have learnt all about power tools, management are nice and flexible, co workers are fun to be around, the hardest part is dealing with difficult customers and the best bit about my job is everyone gets along
