There are typically three different managers per store and some are better than others. As an employee you have to work very hard managing different areas of the store, and although you are pushed to reach your targets re insurance sales, they offer no commission/rewards if you do reach your targets, the managers get the reward which isn't right.
However, the hours are flexible, which is good for a student however if you want solid hours then it isn't an ideal place to work as the amount of hours available for work is based on how much the store makes per week. In Christmas, you can work up to 40 hours per week however during Feb-April you probably wont be offered more than 10.
It is a very fast paced job, however if you have a good team then it is an enjoyable place to work.
They would do annual Christmas dinners and once, when the store did particularly well, the manager took the whole team out for a meal all paid for which was nice.
