      Amazing products. Inspiring training Free products Lovely team

      Cons

      Awful work/life balance due to unsociable hours Almost impossible to progress, if you want to be a trainer you could be waiting at least 5-10 years with no guarantee Pay-freeze so stuck on same low wage no matter how long you are there Increasing competition from newer brands and online shopping means targets are very unachievable

      Pros

      Great company to work for with good values
