Not a great place to work . They could not careless about the colleagues as the expect you to spend all your time in the work place . Managers like to spend most of the time in the office and micro manage . The pay is stocking and bonuses where taken away from colleagues but the managers still get bonus and you are always messed around with your pay . Area manager promise you the earth moon and stars but nothing ever comes of it . Managers treats the colleagues badly and get away with it . Health and safety are very bad dragging heavy boxes up and down stair all the time with little to no storage space

It is a great place to learn good practice to take on to your next role somewhere else. Big box retail can look great on a CV but if your goal is to work within the cycling industry you may struggle to find work in other areas.

Halfords is a great place to start your working career. While working there you are learning basic skills required in the potential future jobs. Such skills include: Communication, Teamwork, Problem solving, Organisational, Precision and Ability to work under pressure. The management of Halfords is great, helpfull and encourages you to improve yourself. Dealing with a variety of customers is the hardest part, due to their variability and sometimes their mood. The co-workers are the best people in your life, cracking jokes and keep you accompany throughout the day.
Pros
Great Start in great environment.
Cons
Standing whole day on your feet.
