    I have been working at William Hill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively simple job if you just want a short term job rather than a career. Travel card zone 1-6 is great value if you work 5 days (25 hours minimum). Can meet interesting customers. Generally flexible working hours, may vary by location/shops needs

    Cons

    Breaks can be hard to setup as you'll often find yourself without a cashier if you're managing, often leading to a long shift without a break. Due to the nature of the job, not all customers you'll meet will be nice.

    I worked at William Hill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Great Pay and Good Kit.

    Cons

    I worked in WH Retail Tech, it was a very strange non tech focused management hierarchy saturated with top down old school management rhetoric. The ‘Product Team’ leads the show deciding on all tech focused decision and routes to market. Being that this team is built up out of ex shop management, technology is not their strong point and this shows in their lack of delivery, team moral, people management and the choices they make (2 steps forward 6 steps back around every corner and milestone). Their turn over of staff is extremely high and they are not HR / employee focused, dealing with issues and complaints in an extremely lazy, half completed manner. Every team is unsupported by Product and they make the final call on everything, I was there for a year and delivered NOTHING to the user. Agile has been on the lips of management for the last 2 years and they are still talking about ‘How it will be implemented’ - which speaks volumes in my mind. I would summarise with saying that the old shop club make everyones role untenable within the office, bullying is rife, lack of direction and ownership at all levels, no focus on dealing with the issues or attempting to retain and empower employees is evident in every squad. I felt more valued stacking, packing and wrapping in a uni summer job. I would avoid this place while the old guard is still in charge at all costs!

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the new guard and get proper management in across product and your products will flourish and you will retain and maintain employee happiness.

    I have been working at William Hill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours and free fruit

    Cons

    Weak leadership, poor strategy, non-inclusive "lads" culture. Trying to sweep falling share price and staff attrition under the carpet. Feels like it's going to collapse. Pay for my role was 60% of equivalent at the competition.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to make people redundant "own it". Explain why it's happening, answer staff's questions and allow them to vent. Do not hang out a new director to dry by getting them to talk about their experience for 30 mins of a stand up to filibuster.
