Sales Assistant in Portsmouth
on 28 November 2020
Efficient but great workspace
Everything done there is very efficient and they do what they can to manage their stores effectively, this may sound like a negative however management are very nice which makes the process 10 times easier and the job much more enjoyable
Store Manager in Norfolk
on 27 February 2021
Poor pay, poor structure
Company will come up with new structures on a whim. Try cluster managers? Didn’t work, reversed it. Then laid off hundreds of staff in order to implement... cluster managers. The pay is poor, downsizing is pretty constant, and the business plan appears to be “overcharge and understaff” so customers are rarely happy. Random changes in company direction will appear from nowhere. Head office are usually unaware (and very unresponsive) of how shop workforce is feeling
Retail Store Manager in Greater Manchester
on 25 February 2021
Worst company I’ve worked for
Bad company culture, if your face fits your ok!!, don’t pay you for hours worked. Worst company I’ve ever worked for. Higher managers not bothered about your family/work balance. Very stressful, under appreciated
Sales Assistant in Eltham, Greater London
on 25 February 2021
Wouldn't recommend to a friend.
Spare the few employees that work the shop floor with me, there is a clear issue with management throughout the company as well as I believe the pay being awful for the job you're expected to do.The shop I work in has bare minimum staff with no overtime available and people expected to do 2 people jobs at once. And do it fast.I have never worked for a more unorganised company and can't wait to find a replacement job.
Store Manager in Newport, Newport
on 21 February 2021
Stressfull, overstretched and underpaid
Underpaid, expected to work your fingers to the bone, don't care about your home life and expected to live and breath WHSmith. Underpaid and refuse to change your title so you won't get paid more even though you are doing more than others on a much larger salary.

Interview questions

I had a 1-1 interview. For a job like this it's more about your personality. Just try to get on well with the interviewer and learn some facts about the company's history.

Shared on 20 October 2020

I did a group interview. First off we had to do an individual maths test, then we were given scenarios and 4 statements and had to order the statements in which we would act. Lastly, I was then asked why I should be hired over everyone else in the room.
