Sales Team Leader in Crewe
on 27 February 2020
Good while it lasted
A great place to work where the team were all good friends by the time the company folded. Store level managers were usually excellent and our technological knowledge definitely prevent more than a few house fires in the area.
Delivery Processor in Barnsley

I hated every minute , managers were stuck in the past and unable to change . And unable to except ideas for change
Horrible place , I hated every minute . Managers were out dated tyrants. Unable to except change and ideas from the work force . I was told by one manager after I gave him advice “ we do it this way and that’s it “.
Sales Assistant in Preston

Over bearing
For he pay offered it was far too demanding, they would make you hound customers repeatedly even after they had been dealt with by other staff members, not only this had holidays cancelled with only a weeks notice.

IT Support Retail Assistant in Sheffield, South Yorkshire
on 12 January 2020
Fun place to work
Staff are friendly. Goes fast. A joy to help and please customers. Management are friendly and couteous and show integrity when it comes to treating all both internal and external customers in a friendly couteous manner. Managers are humanistic leaders not rookie bosses who think management is some form of bad parenting.
