The culture in stores is the managements to create and is usually fast paced and funThe issue with the company is the unrealistic expectations of the senior leadership teams and the complete lack of a culture of listening to change opportunities , it’s all it has to be done this way, no excuses at this timeThe HR teams that work at group level do nothing to create a culture of growth and development and seem to be just fire fighting
Pros
Right store can be fun
Cons
Poor pay and poor senior leadership

Every day is different, hard work but enjoyable.Fast pace but you feel like your decisions make differences to the business and results. Pay not as great as main supermarket retailers but you can achieve a great work life balance that you can't achieve elsewhere and that is priceless. Great opportunities for progression also and a team that backs you 100%
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
Pay could be better

I joined the b and m staff in march 2020 this was two days before the lockdown . This made the team work together more than they ever have , immediately joining the team I felt included and part of the team. The staff and management were extremely helpful with the training and introducing me to retail. I'm proud of my work and what I do for the company every time I'm at work. i enjoy working closely with my colleagues who I've grown close with. The company is fast paced and there's always something to do and something new to learn. Everyone is extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I enjoy working here every single shift!
Pros
Flexible working hours and at least 1 paid lunch break
Cons
Can be very fast paced and trying to rember everything to do can be difficult

I started as a temporary job in march 2020 the beginning of the pandemic, when I was only 17. I offered to the management team that I would like to progress and he did his best to make that happen. Once I turned 18 I was promoted at customer service supervisor in charge of the till. I didn't have an easy and smooth start in the role however the management team didn't give up and gave all the support I needed. All the staff and friendly have hardly have a bad word to say about anyone. The pay isn't great 30p extra above minimum wage. However the 10% discount always comes in handy and the double discount weekends throughout the year.
Pros
Fast pass, paid break if doing 6 hrs. Supportive. Constantly learning. Plenty of overtime
Cons
Some long shifts, the pay isn't the best

Employees aren’t cared about so long as they are making money. I know it’s a business but a happy worker is a good worker. Promotion is given to friend not people who deserve it

I recently started with the company and have had a lot to learn in a short space of time, however, the team helping train me would never let me feel like I was drowning and are still supportive to this day. The day to day is fast paced and plans may often change so adaptability is a must. However it’s incredibly rewarding to see the effort you put in returned to you in the form of being part of a hard working team which simply just clicks. The management of my area are second to none and offers anyone who shows they want it the chance to prove themselves and progress, a true transformation from the rumours I had heard before starting.
Pros
Uniform provided, bonus scheme for upper management, hard working culture

I began work here as a temp colleague and within 3 years have worked my way up to deputy manager. The environment is fun, fast paced and offers plenty of chances to progress and improve. The management team constantly offers help and coaching to those that are interested and overall my experience here has developed many key skills. I would recommend this company to anyone that wants a role they can constantly develop in.
Pros
Colleauge coaching and chances to progress
Cons
Long hours
