Management is horrendous

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Manager would pick on people and we were not paid for overtime. I would be on the closing shift every day and would have to stay back at least half an hour and wouldn’t get paid for this.

Competitive pay

Very long hours and busy. Not much support provided by senior leaders especially during busy periods. Expected to help others even though struggling alone

I like working with the public.i

I really like working here and I've always enjoyed working with hair and beauty products ever since I was in hairdressing and my friends used to get me to put on their makeup before we went on a night out.

Has it ups and downs

Lovely place to work, all staff are lovely. It does have its ups and downs such as good discount and always in different sections. But managers are awful. Very unorganised with hours. Hiring new staff when they aren’t able to give you the hours.

Fun work place

Your people and team are what makes this company so fun.The incentives aren't amazing but if you get a good team the laughs and fun you have along the way make it a good place.

I loved the team I was working with so it was enjoyable. Tasks are fine and easy although management is terrible and have too high expectations for sales.

Easy going workplace

While at work you are required Stock shelves , go on till , offer service and be an overall friendly welcoming person. Management help make you feel part of a time and encourage you to work hard.


Paid break


Not much overtime

Worst place to work

It was the worst place I’ve ever worked you are constantly put down and belittled. Not a day I didn’t go home and cry. Avoid for your own mental health. Difficult customers, Management horrible and treat you badly to the point you feel depressed and mentally drained. No private confidentiality, it’s expected to be your life. Was moaned at cause I couldn’t get childcare on my day off to come in and told. Work was my main priority, Poor hours, poor pay, the warehouse is a death trap. No training and you get belittled in front of other staff for things you was never told. No point asking for overtime as it’s not shared out equally and only given to the new staff to make them believe it’s more hours


The discount


Don’t work here

Fun and productive work place

Really enjoyed my time at superdrug. Never a dull day and always something to do. Colleagues were fun. Although breaks could have been longer 15 mins just not long enough

Busy Day

Enough work to keep you busy throughout your shift. Decent breaks and great team to work with. Different tasks rotad throughout the month so something new each week but you always know what you should be doing

Long Hours and Low pay

Not great pay with long hours and high sales expected. Need to consider that 4 hour shifts are not ideal for everyone and think about a rota system that is constant rather than planned in the way they do now.

Alright first job

it is okay for a first job however you are required to hit sales targets consistently which i found weird as the staff was mostly 16-18 year olds when i worked there

Great company to work for, pay is good and nice community of people around. However, support is very poor, expected to run store taking a lot of money week on week with poor hour budget that keeps getting cut. Results in no staff. Assistant managers and managers get no overtime pay, but do way more than contract each week. Can take paid time in lieu but no chance to take it

Very busy

Hard work, long hours poorly paid. Constantly having shop lifters. The colleagues probably made the job abit better. The rota sometimes wasn’t the best, late finishes and early starts

Fun place

It was a positive environment. • Ensuring that all customers receive excellent service though direct salesmanship, and prompt and courteous service. • Greeting each customer that comes into the store in a warm manner. • Identifying customer requirements. • Preparing merchandise for display.• Providing a premium VIP service to all customer at all times• Confident approach and work ethic.

Good place to work

Good company to work for, especially in smaller stores with strong team and family-like dynamics. However, targets and expectations are quite demanding with a lot of criticism if they are not met which puts pressure on all staff.
