      Pros

      Training is good and constantly updating. Staff are friendly and Management approchable. Good discount.

      Cons

      Full time isn't always 40 hours. Depending on the role. It maybe 30. Taking holidays isn't always easy as you have to work around other staff. Opening hours maybe 9-9, and later at Christmas. Everyone usually works a weekend at some point

      Managers can be over-bearing and toxic, have clear favourites. A lot of pressure on staff to make sales in smaller stores
