You can do a great deal of courses but unfortunately you never get to follow through with the training!! Was stuck in the same position for years with no advancements career wise so that's a ploy to get people in,it's not a nice place to work as there seems to be too many people acting like management (were normal floor staff but got away with it) throwing orders at people while they sat and drank tea with the management and other staff couldn't even go to the bathroom without permission or a telling off for leaving their position!!

Halfords - Retail - Good Training - Minimum Wage

This was a nice position, to gain experience in retail and sales. The work morale and environment is great. Training opportunities is good.

Management can be hit or miss depending on what store you attend.


Management offers and the progression within Halfords is difficult as favoritism and bias takes precedent over hard work and achievement.

Working for Halfords, I learned so much! There were so many opportunities to advance if your interested. 1 out of 10 managers are interested but if you get that 1, itll be the best experience of your life! It's the kind of experience that it is what you make it!

They’ll run you ragged for v poor pay. No bonuses but promised them. Xmas is horrible working here.
Customers are mostly ok but Xmas brings out the worst in them
