Kitchen Design Sales Consultant in Beverley
Solid professional company - however salaries are low
A professional company. Systems/protocols and training are well developed. Salaries and commission are poor. As the company is large and most branches run similarly to a franchise; it is difficult for head office to see staff treatment at ground level,; they tend to turn a blind eye if they have good financial results are branch level.
Store Manager in South East London, Greater London
Great company to work for
Been with the company for a fair few years now and I can say I’m really enjoying working for Magnet. It’s fun, fast paced, challenging and massively rewarding. There are great colleagues and management around to always keep pushing you deliver a better you. We have great stores, products and systems to make our customers journey truly unique and best in the market. I work in a London store so it’s always something different everyday happening. If your looking for a company to progress and develop then Magnet is a great place to be the HR manager is fantastic and supporting always available to help with any issues and development needs in store. The regional management are Always on hand to push you and coach you to become a great manager he is a very great role model and one day can hopefully progress into this role. All in all not many companies can offer such great packages and support. Great work place
Had its day
I am a current manager in the southeast region, and the company has just had a massive restructure and behold the godfathers (RD) are gone. Which is great but the choices of the ASM that we have now should of gone with them because all they will do is infect us with the useless copy and paste that only regional has somehow managed to believe is leadership. HR for the southeast is more interested in being friends so they can be getting away earlier and not interested in protecting the staff from the useless new regional. The two or one regional depending on how it’s split is either playing around with a designer and the other is in the job because they had there nose somewhere where it didn’t belong and put there before they got kicked out. I have worked and worked to achieve and push for the impossible and for what to be looked at and treated like I have given nothing. And I am taking this further and I am actively looking but i don’t trust the company to deal correctly with it, but the whole culture in this company needs to change and needs to start with out with the old and in with the new. Head office is a joke and that needs shot off fast utter useless I am actually lost for words to describe them to be honest, to be honest I’d rather see magnet on the ropes with a rib shot just to end there chances of ever getting back up. So don’t work here or if you do, get out!

Don’t work here
In the years I have been there. Progression has been talked about but never followed through with. Bullying from area management and not a nice environment to be in. Seen as a number most of the time instead of an individual. Always critisized when not hitting targets but no lthanks for when you do. Its a shame as the first few years were refreshing but the last manager was a nightmare to work for. Seems to be a little buddy circle between certain managers and area management which did not make it fair. The manager in question provided no support during long term absence (absence due to work related stress leading to further personal issues) and the company as a whole have no care for their customer base once they have delivered the kitchen despite the “guarantee’s” in place.

Disloyal regional management
If your looking for a company to progress through the ranks with support and encouragement, then this isn’t for you. Starting from the top the leadership and management style is left to be desired, just hope head office sees sooner rather than later. HR manager is there to protect the company and staff but allows the regional director to abuse staff with undesirable profanities. The area manager was told to apply over the others (waste of my time) the other is well the errand boy. If this pandemic had not of come around and created this now unbelievable disloyal area management team then god forbid we will see out 2021 with a strong company, they and head office will be the demise of magnet and all people that have put there sweat and tears into making much of success it has now with one hand tied behind there back.
