My boss was a lazy person and thought he knew it all, he would sit upstairs and watch me on the c.c.t.v and he would phone down if I wasn't moving enough. He only came down too help if it was really busy. He paid me in cash with no payslip. The job was advertised as a proper job but according to him I was in training and on a training wage which wasn't even minimum wage.
Pros
None
Cons
Bad manegment, poor pay.

Don’t apply if you are in their clique because you won’t fit in and they will make sure you know it Did not get along with anyone as non of them gave me a chance Got shouted at down the phone, you’re constantly watched on cctv while working and then the smallest mistake you are treated like you can’t do your job Even if you do your job correctly they with fire you for the most stupidest reason Worst job I have ever had and I’ll never recommend anyone getting a job there with them
Pros
No pros at all
Cons
Horrible people to work for

I worked ridiculous hours for awful pay. The older members of staff were rude. I got a 20 minute break for a 7 hour shift where I was on my feet the whole time. Sometimes my break was only 15 minutes long because it was so busy. Because I worked morning shifts I was dealing with deliveries so my hands were alway being cut from the boxes as I wasn’t given anything to open them with
Pros
None
Cons
Poor pay rude staff no break

Gave a lot of new experience with good colleagues and customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is cash handling which requires our full attention and concentration.

Pressured to do jobs that management should take care of & the management did not care about its staff. Working with customers are great but it’s the management that make you lose motivation to do your job. There are also no benefits of working there, you have to pay for your own food for your breaks and you won’t get a break unless you ask for one if the managers are around.

Great local store, opening times and stocks enough products for the size of the shop. Also comes with a post office, Sells cheap booze and other stuff. I do subsequently find some items slightly overpriced for what they are, and they can be sourced cheaper at an competitors. Hence we try to mach it. Overall great experience working with them.

I loved being a paper boy for the company and meeting all of my customers on my round, I always had help if I ever needed it which was not often. The other employees are very nice and the Management staff are lovely too.

I was employed in my local corner shop for a few months and I have never been employed by a more dreadful employer. Staff come and go, the staff that stay are unhappy and the manager works you very hard and is very very rude and derogatory towards staff.

I was only a paperboy so everyday was the same. I turned up to work picked up the papers and took my own route which suited me. This allowed me to finish closest to home.
