Worked the evening stock replenishment so 8pm till around 1am but we would sometimes be asked to stay longer. There was never any pressure to stay longer which was nice. The job didn't really get explained to me properly so I always felt as if I was being judged for doing things wrong. The manangement was full of cliques. They would be close to some staff and then really distant to a select few so we would be made to feel unwanted within the place of work. When the shift got changed to days we would get shouted at from the manager for not adhereing to certain health and safety rules which were never explained to us. Rather than explaining them himself he continued to tell us off day in day out. They let me go because I had to self-cert for personal reasons.
Pros
Never any pressure to do extra hours.
Cons
Management were horrible.

They are liars, acting like they help and care but nowhere near.... They make you believe you are important and good but throwing you away like a piece of garbage

Not bad, Not good either. Feel used. Is always understaffed and even if there is staff none of them would be working, just gossiping! Quite repetitive. Management isn’t bad but could be better. Would not recommend for long term employment. A lot of favoritism between supervisors and normal staff. If you’re not one of the favorites you’ll have a hard time enjoying working at Company Shop.
Pros
Holidays
Cons
All of the above

Love the business and the work life balance. Easiest retail job I have had. Back to basic retailing. Management in Renfrew store leaving to opening new Edinburgh shop. Set a great culture of training as well as under performing colleagues. Love the place.
Pros
Great work life balance, place to work
Cons
Systems a bit out dated but doesnt really matter

Very reactive place of working, absolutely no planning or foresight. Very weak team management and senior management lead via a culture of fear. A typical day would be spent chasing shadows from the morning heads of department meeting. The rest of your day would be spent raising concerns about their systems and procedures not being fit for purpose and being roundly ignored. The business is reluctant to invest in hardware it desperately needs but it will commence very elaborate and expensive systems that won’t bring any immediate benefit that they desperately require. The analogy of this would that the house is on fire but they’re more worried about choosing a new sofa: misguided. The on call rota is not paid and is very frequent. The management is very much micro management.
Pros
The canteen is the only good thing about this place
Cons
Everything other than the canteen

No one seems to know what is ment to be going on half the time, the managers where often out smoking or in the office, the supervisors are pointless, they’ll tell you to do something this way then moan and tell you to do it a different way. They don’t care about your health, or if you have a family. Can’t even have a break with out them clockwatching (10 minutes to clock out run to the break room have a drink then run back) my job was totally pointless. Would not recommend working to buying from here

Horrible company to work for. Expect too much from their workers. Manager talks to staff like dirt and gets away with it. Work very heavy at times and sometimes they expect you to do two jobs at once. The money

I worked through an agency into company shop, they don't appreciate your hard work!! They treat you like dirt and the manager thinks it's ok to sack people on a daily basis! One guy had nothing to do so he sacked him
Pros
A good wage
Cons
They crack the whip basically you cant be seen doing nothing or your sacked!

Management could not manage a knees up in a brewery. Lol, induction was like an execution, job very boring and stock store is selling very poor, probably why store isn't performing as expected.

Poor training and bad upper management who do things which you have to change to comply with food safety. No feedback given as to what was expected. Training is non existent.

Company shop LTD is a quality company to work for the people that work there are very nice, they could pay more for the work they expect to be done, and also could introduce bonuses like time and half for overtime over ya contracted hours

I worked here for six years and during that time staff roles and hours where changed for no reason or commercial benefit. A high turnover of supervisors and management kept making unnecessary changes causing a unsettled work place environment and a negative atmosphere. I finally called it a day when my manager changed my hours to 10.00pm finishing time without consultation or consideration for child care issues and refusing to discuss or change the rotas. I would not recommend working here unless drastic changes where made.
Pros
None
Cons
Unfair treatment of staff

Worked there a couple of months , the colleagues are great to work with. Workload is a lot as many colleagues are taken from the shop floor to assist tills which leaves you with the bulk of the work . Management don’t care about the colleagues , they are all for themselves stuck in an office . Few will help on the shop floor but rarely . Rotas are always mixed up
