Good if you like working.
Overall a great experience in Easons, respectful management, mostly young staff and good working hours. Very difficult and inconsistent with holidays though.

Misogynistic Culture
Women do as their told, spoken at not too not a conversation. Very demanding male orientated, jobs for the boys. Family orientated so everyone has to look and dress like robots and not express themselves. Which is ironc as it is a book store with a huge variety of views and experiences being sold.

Joke of a company
Absolutely no idea what they are doing in head office, sending pallets and pallets of books to stores with absolutely no where to put them, everything has to be put to plan with none of the pallets of books actually on these plans!! Physically and mentally draining, minimum wage

Run Away
Immediate management were fantastic and very accommodating. However, their job is made impossible by head office who are more interested in making ridiculous videos of themselves dancing around the shop for "training" than say, ensuring a supply of stock, or ensuring adequate staffing, or even paying their rent and creditors.If I could sum up Easons treatment of staff in one word it would be: despicable. Despite working through 2020 staff were not given a Christmas bonus if they had worked there for less than a year. These, incidentally, would been the same members of staff who were made redundant- mid pandemic- with no warning, and then taken back with no proper contracts.Staff members never recieved the mythical staff card that allowed them discounts in store.When shops reopened after the initial lockdown all staff received only 80% of their wage, Easons did not top it up, despite their online sales increasing for this period. When the TWSS ended staff were limited to working 3 days a week. My understanding being that this was because the government would subsidise those hours, but not anything above it.When lockdown 2 and 3 arrived Head office were adamant that everything should be available for sale and opened the shops for browsing. This action was so socially irresponsible, and so greedy in light of the independent bookshops that couldn't even do click and collect during this period.Penny pinching and greed is all this company is about, and for anyone interviewing with them I would urge to think twice. Its minimum wage, and absolutely not worth it.

Great collaborative feel, no opportunity for progression
A great place to work for a short period of time or while you're studying, but no opportunity to progress in the long term. A lovely job and work culture but sadly not a career
