Good company to work for BUT:DISAPPOINTED
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – West London, Greater London – 26 April 2018
Spend a few years with the business, come across some great people and not so great. The business was brought out by a larger group and showed signs of being special. The daily grind was good and the team had great attitudes. BUT: If you are looking to progress higher in the chain you will be disappointed, the jobs are for mates not hard workers. Salary expectations are not great and nowhere near other competitors, if you request a pay rise you will have to fight through the forest and get out the other side to even get a response..(it is a long, deep forest and takes a long time), even then you get ignored and have to chase, then you still don't get it, out come the excuses, leaving you deflated. The business runs on a shoe string, no staff, low levels of stock, poor (new) phone system (waste of money) other parts of group have what they need?.If you improve, grow your branch and show excellence they take resource away from you...???. No investment improve your branch or even customers expectations at all. Shame it could be an even better company to work for and really get a grip on things if supported and become a great manager, but you get nowhere when you ask, just excuses.No support. Its a time warp going backwards.
Great atmosphere, great people
Poor wage, nothing to sell, no support, no training, no staff.
