I enjoyed most of my 3 years at Central and made many friends with other managers across that time, and worked under 2 excellent area managers, who tried to help me progress and both had different styles. Unfortunately there was little chance of progression past Store Manager, despite promises that were made under the previous regime, and it was time to move on. Whilst working long weeks travelling all over the place to prove yourself and getting involved in company projects it becomes hard to turn back after rejection. I miss the people but not what the company had become.Under Bestway, the company has become more and more corporate, whilst working many stores are working on restricted hours. The culture during the P&H days was that of a family and as long as your store was making money and had great standards everything else was fine, along with regular trade shows/parties/days out.Salary was good for convenience retail, towards the higher end, but this to a large part has now changed and each store has a cap for salary.

Don't do it , the culture at bestway is a don't care one. There is always someone else to take your place. Because it is minimum wage they will take anyone, no disrespect meant but people don't stay long, some only 1day!
can't think of any
Once you're in you're forgotten about
Stressful environment, underpaid/overworked, no support from higher up and very limited if at all progression possibilities! 8 hour shift only 20 minute break allowed which is a struggle to take anyway so end up not even taking it some days! No extra rates for working bank holidays etc like you would find at other competitive retailers.
Great place to work ...If your not afraid of hard work. The current manager is excellent. When I joined, the store was in a terrible state. It's great to see it improving and turning a corner .The atmosphere is also improving day by day. The customers have noticed a diffrence .
Above average pay
