    I worked at Iceland Foods part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is good for young people and the discount card.

    Cons

    Under too much stress because management do not help around the store, main manager will shout and be in a bad mood with mainly the female members of staff, made to feel like a number and not a person.

    Advice to Management

    New management is definitely needed and you need to help members of staff within the store instead of sitting in an office, watching a camera, which is not allowed.

    Some friendly customers but they are treat badly by queing and noone answering calls for help

    If your face doesnt fit you will be forced out

    Advice to Management

    Respect your hard working employees and stop with the constructive dismissal efforts. Dont cut hours to bare minimum then employ under 18s because they're cheaper. Reward loyalty and you'll get it back in abundance
