Having worked here before I turned 18, my main reason for departure was the low minimum wage for my age band (£4 an hour in 2017). However I thoroughly enjoyed working here - the tasks that the job requires are not physically demanding or exhausting but there is plenty to do to keep you busy, my colleagues were pleasant and easy to work with, requesting time off or particular shifts was never a problem and the shop was well run by efficient management.
Pros
Flexible hours, relaxed pace, good management
Cons
Minimum wage

I can’t believe under the present COVID-19 crisis it’s CEO is seriously thinking of opening up some of its sites. So much for safety, first and second nature. Was an excellent company in its day with imaginative and forward thinking top teams.

The shop is okay quite messy at times, on a morning when the papers are due mostly they are late and the owners are usually late, which means when they are I’m running late with the papers

Didn't enjoy working here at all. Only stayed for a few months. Awful atmosphere and no respect from manager. Would not recommend to anyone I know.

I gained a lot of experience working in the Mace for a week. Everyone was very friendly and very supportive to me and always helped me when i needed their advice. I worked on the till also and was glad to have this experience, in dealing with customers. I also undertooks cleaning duties of the shop, stacking shelves, organising the shelves and making sure everything was front facing for the customers.

it was very stressful but pretty laid back. there was a lot of customers that were stressful to serve and there was a lot that were easy. The employer wasn't always on your back.

Provided a high level of customer service, whilst also creating a great rapport with customers. Working with various stakeholders and suppliers to negotiate different product pricing to ensure the monthly expectation turnover is achieved. Managing the stock inventory, finances and HR - recruiting new employees. Implemented new pricing strategy and discounts that led to an increase in monthly turnover.

The friendly atmosphere and supportive company culture at Mace makes coming to work truly enjoyable. Management gives you room to develop within your role, and listens to your ideas. There are great internal opportunities.
