    I worked at Holland & Barrett Retail full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Knowlege learned on vitamins, minerals, supplements. Learning to deal with insane work loads. Staff discount is great and competitive. Good room for progression because there's always people leaving and so always vacancies in higher positions.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, lone working, huge uncompensated work load, long hours, consistent and continual UNPAID overtime, terrible company ethics in regards to employee welfare, incorrect or missing pay most of the time followed by backbends and one-month-or-more long waiting times to get it fixed etc etc

    Advice to Management

    To the company as a whole: LOOK AT THE STATS AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your mistakes. The 80% Labour Turn Over figure (in comparison to 30% average in the retail sector) is not for nothing - it is because of YOU AS A COMPANY, not every individual manager causing staff to leave like you make out. Listen to how ridiculous that is - that somehow, every single manager in the entire company is terrible and causing staff to leave. Couldn't possibly have anything to do with not getting paid of course. Own up and fix your policies and the way you treat your staff, and maybe you'll keep staff for more than a few months!
