    Current Employee - Part-time Sales Advisor 

    I have been working at Superdrug part-time

    Pros

    Working with a lot of brands and gaining a lot of knowledge. Good discount. You can progress quickly

    Cons

    Low Hour Contracts 12 hrs per week for a Team Lead. Much too much work to get done in the 12 hours so extra unpaid hours are usually required to get duties finished. Management expect you to stay after your shift if they are busy, which is all unpaid time which adds up.
