    A lot of autonomy... maybe too much

    Electronic Function Tester (Current Employee) Colchester, England (UK)

    ProsMy role involved fixing electronic and electrical donations in order to ensure their safe operation.
    I was granted a lot of autonomy in that I had a very flexible work schedule and training was short but effective.

    ConsNot a lot to complain about for what the job was. I don't feel that I would have been able to grow much in my role due to the nature of the job. Meaning I was unlikely to receive a pay rise either.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    BHF store managers appear to lack management experience and understanding of working with disabled staff

    Sales (Former Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    ProsMost people are caring, willing to work hard and cope with people with disabilities with respect

    ConsExperience has shown that some stores have a high turnover of managers many of whom stay for less than a few months. Managers are supported by Head Office HR in treating disabled people in ways that clearly skirt the law.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou get more out of staff if you treat them with respect and reward them for their work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
