Store member in Leeds, West Yorkshire
Wasn't for me
I had an interview and was offered job within a few hours. Had my induction two days later and my shift the day after that, didn't make it to my second shift as I quit before it not for any particular reason just simply wasn't for me I have never worked in retail before so it was a big change from what I'm use to. I must say the store I worked in and the people I met in the couple or days there were all so lovely and the management also seemed really nice I had heard a lot of stories which didn't paint their team and management in a good light but the team I worked with were really nice.
Store Team Member in Bridgwater, Somerset
Worked at the Bridgwater store not so long ago, at first all seemed well and I thoroughly enjoyed my job within the store. However it became quickly apparent that you needed to "get in good with the store manager" The culture within the store felt like they were looking for any reason to fire you, even for the lesser serious incidents.I would never recommend anybody work here (it may be different in a different store but I can only speak from my experience)

Nice place to work
Working at home bargains all depends on the management. Before i applied i had heard terrible things about terrible managers who were nasty but i have to say the manager of my branch and the general management are all really nice people. I have never felt uncomfortable asking for days off or any help at all. Of course they ask that you put 100% work effort in but that is expected. They are all down to earth and really nice. A typical work day is mainly either working on tills, cleaning shelves and bringing stock forward or opening boxes and stocking shelves. Occasionally the manager may ask you to rearrange a shelf or aisle with them but very rarely. All my co-workers are also down to earth and even though i barely know any of them you can chat with them and they are great. The hardest part of the job is the fill shift as even though it is a 4 hour shift by default it can last upto 6 or 7 hours depending on how lazy the other staff on shift are. Personally i love being on the tills because its very easy and i hate opening boxes all the time.
Bad place to work
No work life balance made to stay without asking and make you work all day with no break. No structure or organisation of the work place. Have shop lifters in all the time and meant to memories them all.
