    I worked at Halfords part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work
    Good place to start
    Good place to work during University
    Good overtime opportunities

    Cons

    Poor management
    Bonuses rarely paid even when due
    Training was exceptionally poor and generic

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Let somebody good takeover. I worked in two stores and both had serious flaws. Training won't help people who simply don't understand what empathy is.
