Superdrug in Bristol
on 15 May 2022
Small contracts but plenty of opportunities for overtime especially during peak season. Unrealistic targets forced upon you from above.Supportive upper management.
Supervisor/Team Leader in South East London, Greater London

Overworked and underpaid
As a supervisor the pay is £10.15, the rate for a supervisor stays the same regardless of ages. There are no real benefits to working here, you get 30% discount on exclusive and own brand products otherwise it’s a general 10%. You are overworked and managers dump their slack onto us. Lots of shoplifting incidents and no matter how much you log them, the company still doesn’t give you security. Then when you don’t go after the thieves they tell you you’re not doing your job and when you do go after them they tell you not to so you can’t win. Targets for sales are set way too high and there is no gratitude or incentive from the company. If you have a good team then that’s about the only thing going. Wouldn’t recommend working here at all.

The staff make the job
Constantly selling extra products to customers that don't want it. The staff are the best part of the job especially management who help in any way they can with changing shifts for you giving you time off.

Fun place to work
It can be stressful (but that’s mostly due to awkward customers) but overall I’m very happily surprised with how lovely the company is to work with! I would recommend it as a great starter job.

Stressful and not worth it
This is not a nice place to work.Management think that you can devote your whole life to the job, not caring if education is your top priority. They seem to think that the more stress they place upon you, the better you will do but the truth is, it makes you hate the job. I would never recommend this company to anyone as the few benefits do not make the bad things worth it.
