      Pros

      Friendships made whilst working there

      Cons

      Lack of training, very boring most of the time. Advertise sick pay but at managers discretion, and no consistency. I had to have time off for hysterectomy but only got SSP and no sick pay

      Cons

      Nothing really to note .

      Pros

      Some nice people to work with

      Cons

      Blatant favouritism of staff members from management in terms of 'job' assignments during the working day, no progression in career even though expected to have knowledge of every aspect of the business, management will hide away from customer issues and give no support to shopfloor staff, some staff members conned out of holiday days.
