      Pros

      - Next Rewards, can use your points for online shopping. - 25% staff discount.

      Cons

      - Very low pay - Management don’t appreciate or recognise your hard work - Bullying other staff members - Very stressful at all times - A very negative place to work in - Management are all over the place don’t know what they’re doing, not allowing people take their holidays etc. - Pay has been wrong since Oracle was implemented, most staff members getting paid wrong wage every month/week, have to keep track of what hours your doing and if you get paid wrong you have to chase HR to fix it. -Working long hours during Christmas period and getting no bonus or a thank-you from the company. - No upskilling available. Overall would not recommend this company to work for.
