A great company to work for
It is a very customer focus job. Management are considerate if you need to change the hour for personal emergency. All the staff are working together as a team.
Pros
Staff discount
Cons
Sometimes not enough staff when it is very busy

Lovely place to work for
Card factory are like a family all scattered around the Country, every shop manager helps another manager out when needed, staff are all lovely the shops are bright and clean. They always give the in house staff the opportunity to go up the ladder before going outside to fill the roles. It is hard work but it's only as hard as you make it yourself.

Lovely coworkers(mostly)but awful management
I love everyone that I work with and most customers are lovely but management is awful. I’m paid less than minimum wage, we had to work the whole Christmas period with no carrier bags to give people for their purchases which made 90% of people leave their stuff behind, all because management didn’t order enough and wouldn’t buy more for us, this led to abuse from customers, good place for experience but bad for everything else

Great products, business poorly managed
Bright vibrant shops , lovely customers great product, 4 and 8 hour contracts are all this store offer, when it’s busy you have to be available for long hours due to too few employees, when it’s quiet they cut your hours and only roster contract hours, company ethos very poor towards employees. They promise great management advancement if you commit to being a key holder but they only pay extra for this when the managers not there on her day off. So you do it the rest of the week for no extra!! Free training lol. This uk company run the business on a shoe string of part time contracts, poor working conditions with the manager the only staff member with a 40 hour contract and performance bonus. Minimum wage to multitask, Employee burn out, huge turn over of staff due to bad working conditions and lack of company respect. Budget by name, budget by nature
Pros
Great products
Cons
4 or 8 hour contracts

Would not recommend working here
It was not a great place to work. The managers often took a long time to put the roster up. Managers constantly kept leaving the job because they hated it. Employees get absolutely no employee benefits apart from a 20% discount. I would not recommend working here to anyone.
Cons
Terrible management and no Christmas bonus or any type of bonus.
