Mobile Manager in West Midlands
on 19 July 2022
Great if you work hard
Great culture. If you want progression with no qualifications this is the perfect place. If your willing to work hard and build relationships, you will be able to earn good money and progress through the business.

Fun but can be stressful
Security wise should be job for life but your never earn huge amounts for the work you do. Pay structure is very outdated and needs to be sorted ASAP especially overtime with none paid at time n half just a set pay which would be £5-10 more than you'd earn on normal contracted hours so no real incentive to do it but your get made feel bad if you don't. If your ill you'd be encouraged still go work instead. The area teams try do best they can but those above are very out of touch and ask for this n that worth no extra pay. Upside down management from what I've learned is basically not true if it was why isn't the pay better for the amount of responsibility that is put on people's shoulders.
Branch Manager in East London, Greater London

Not a good place to work
Not a great company at all. My experience echos those who have been honest about working here. Always pressured into doing overtime and are expected not to have any sort of a life.Very outdated systems in place. No structure and you’re expected to just shut up and put up. No real help for mental health, just a phone number given to you and you’re expected to get on with it. Taking a lunch break is frowned upon and you’re expected to ‘have a working lunch as not to loose out on potential bonus’.The bonus system is rigged so you’ll only get something if you’re in a busy shop which btw are non existent, as the shops are so near each other all the shops end up making mediocre money so the only person who really benefits is the person at the top. Being sick is a major crime as you’ll be made to come in as there’s no one to cover your branch ever. No chances of progressing or doing anything other then just being a shop keeper, which if that’s what you want then that’s ok. They need to invest in their workforce by offering apprenticeship and qualifications and pay a fair wage. The company clearly hasn’t kept up with the times and I can’t personally see this company lasting another 20 years unless it’s changes it’s structure.

Horrible place to work.
The mental health ambassador encourages you to work without taking break & they make you feel bad for not doing overtime. Poor company to work for some serious problems with the mobile management, the was various members of staff thinking they are really better than a new starter just because they can repair a shoe… literally seen a mobile manager make more mistakes than myself and it’s a joke.
Mobile Colleague in Hampshire
on 29 July 2022
Don't work for them if you want a life or have a family. Don't expect to climb the ladder if u care about your safety or life out side of the job days off change at a drop of a hat. They don't care about mental heath at all as your on your own every day. Don't expect praise for good work but do a little thing wrong and expect to be hung out. Pay is low for all they expect from you national minimum to do every aspect of running a shop you can get more just to stack shelves.
