It’s a decent company to work for as a driver do long hours and don’t spend much time at home due to being on the road a lot but that’s part of the job, pay could be better also

Customer's are what made the job worth getting out of bed for but the senior management were a joke didn't encourage you to better yourself and gave you no support , I felt as if I were just a number glad to be out of it

Typically stacking shelves and organizing the store everyday. I learned a lot about retail work and how to operate in a retail environment. The store manager was an amazing person to work with she is really kind and hard working. Typically relaxed however on a Thursday every week it would get quite stressful at times. the hardest part was learning everything then forgetting it the next day. The most enjoyable part was just being a part of the staff there as they are all really amazing people.

Good place to work, friendly staff. Breaks are paid if under an hour. Managers are flexible and try to give you the time off you need. Never have to work beyond your finishing time.

Men are not employed by this company. Only gossipy, nasty women get in. Don't bother with this one, unless you are middle-aged, female, and enjoy spreading lies about people.
Pros
It's nearby
Cons
Cramped store, poorly managed
