Great place to work, fast paced which I love, challenging.. everyday is different.. the pay is not great, they need to review that, other wise they will lose great working staff

Awful

I would recommend no one with any ambition of life skills to ever even think about applying. They drain the life and soul out of the most happy go lucky human being

Not great

I joined the business as a Deputy Store Manager in January 2022, leaving a well-paid Store Manager role to join a business that appeared to have stronger career prospects (and closer to home) The training was absolutely lacklustre. No structure or anything. Whilst the Area Manager was great and supportive, the same could not be said for the Store Manager - more interested on the phone to other managers having a gossip! The store team was in general absolutely fantastic, very supportive and passionate. Salaries in the business do definitely need to be reviewed - the gap between a department manager and deputy manager is minimal - considering the size and operation of the store.

Pros

None

Cons

Money and hours could be improved

Money for colleagues and management should be reflective of the consistent level of work expected and in line with other similar retailers. Store has a massive family atmosphere which makes every single day worth while. Really happy they’ve spent time investing in the people they have to help further their careers.

Great Place to Work

Great place to work with good opportunities to progress. Management salaries shrinking as minimum wages increase and less hours to get job done but fair company to work for.

Fast paced but friendly workplace

b&m is a very enjoyable place to work with a great team and management to work with, although the seasonal periods can be very busy and demanding. B&M as a company is a great way to progress in roles and you have great support from within your store and those surronding you.

Pros

Good team, fast paced, friendly

Cons

Amazing opportunities for growth

I’ve learnt a lot over the years and have been able to get creative as well as teach people what I’ve learnt. B&m have many job roles which you can go between to see where you are best suited. There’s always someone on hand if you need help.

Great place to work

I have worked for the company for 5 years. I started as checkout operator and progressed to deputy manager. I must say I love My job. Yes it can be stressful but then isn't every job. No 2 days are ever the same. We have new stock coming in all the time with the changing seasons. All the colleagues are great. I have been in the Saltash branch for 8 months now and i love it here. Its a proper family atmosphere everyone looks after everyone. If your having a bad day there is always someone there to make you smile. It's a great store to work in. The progression within B & M is excellent and is actively encouraged. Talent is recognised and regarded.
