Failure To React

High staff turnover. Next to no training. Toxic work colleagues. Management have no grip on issues before they escalate. Poor recruitment standards.

Decent place

I enjoy working at B&M it’s fast paced and hard work at times People are lovely who I work with. Progression is easy if wanted. I get a decent amount of contracted part time hours to make it worthwhile to me.Takes a while to get to know where things are, but everyone is helpful. Benefits are good you get 10% discount

Pros

Happy environment

Some Bad Management

Most of management is fine, but younger members of staff were bullied to quit by one of them. Overall it was an alright place to work, laidback at times but stressful when it got extremely busy.

fast pace environment

No 2 days are the Same working For B&M home stores. We have a great team working along side each other on all departments. All staff are kind, friendly and helpful. This is a fast pace place work environment with jobs to do daily across all departments. I enjoy serving our customers and definitely seeing regulars. our customers service team make the day great at the front end. I haven't been in the company long and I've gone from a temporary till staff to customer service supervisor within 5 month. There are always opportunities for staff to progress and go further within their careers should they wish to.

Pros

Friendly team

Cons

Fun, fast paced, and always busy

Never a dull day at B&M, whether it’s helping customers, or colleagues there’s always something to do. I’ve learnt great time management skill working at B&M and the importance of setting high expectations, but not unreasonable ones. Always pushed to my limit and I love a challenge.
