Sales Assistant in Woodford
Open and honest communication
Shop floor colleagues were friendly and good to work with. However senior management wasn’t the best to work with and multiple staff members left due to that. The general manager was great to work for as he was more empathetic and easier to deal with.

The perfect company, let down by zero hour contracts
I loved working at Notcutts, both times, and honestly would never have left.The staff were more family than just people I worked with, the work was always different and challenging in a good way and the management were approachable and understanding but fair.Unfortunately due to the companies use of Zero Hour Contracts and lack of advancement, it was a difficult choice to leave for something higher paying and a salary.

Dont stay long....
I worked for Nottcuts what I thought would be a dream job, as a keen gardener what's not to like? You'd be wrong though. Initially things go well working for Notcutts, however after the first few weeks its obvious all is not well or as it seems in the garden of employment you have found yourself in....... Firstly just let me say I made some good friends working there, but, as in so many workplaces we can sometimes find ourselves in, there is a dark side to the business.You will be very overworked to the point of exhaustion and given no support at all - even if you ask for it and genuinely need it. Your line manager will be indifferent to you and simply ignore any concerns. Inter-department rivalry permeates the whole place, senior older employees have there on little kingdom's and will openly bully, intimidate and belittle you with delight or indeed threats. Pay was often incorrect and took weeks to rectify. My "contract" on checking had errors, post code wrong, name of street spelt incorrectly, surname also ( I had checked beforehand the form I completed and kept a copy) Sickness was rife among many staff -I imagine to go to interviews just to get out of there , the high staff turnover supported that, particularly in the restaurant, which to me at least, resembled a forced labour camp, lunch breaks regularly " cancelled" verbal abuse and threats to staff, seriously I kid you not. The final straw for me in the end was being told to work into the late evening to get the work done or " the area manager would be on my back" (my line managers words) its worth mentioning that we didn't have a branch manager at the time, there was a loan one. I had started as 7.30 am the same day. So there you go, if you stay don't make it for long , get a VERY THICK SKIN, and look after yourself.

Lovely to start with.
Everyone is lovely to start with but after a few months most of the staff become very toxic, nothing is done about it and staff members are allowed to walk around bullying others. They make you feel like you're not doing your job if you plan a holiday or need sick leave. Very poorly managed and run.
