I didn't learn anything new working at Pelco ltd,just added stress.The hours are long if you want to work more hours (it depends on each employee), the "sick call" are frequent because the employees are not happy,there is lack of communication between the employees and the management/the head office," friends" are aloud the late start shift/early leaving,NO staff discount,double standards and not necessarily the best is promoted.Glad to leave it,hope never to hear about them (although some of the sale/deli assistants were friendly and hard working).
Breaks were hard to get on time if the store was very busy. The canteen was very small for their staff, unfortunately. If you finished your shift early, you would be stopped 15 minutes in your wages.
Paid for bank holidays
stoppages on your wages .
The job itself is not very stressful, the usual retail tasks like stocking shelve, cleaning the shop and toilets etc. The management is very poor, rosters are made a week in advance, constantly being asked to cover other people shifts. Holidays are unnecessarily hard to apply for and reset at the end of the year. Head office takes every opportunity to deduct money from the already minimum wage. Head office will come in and complain about anything and everything.
The ownership is not satisfied with forcing you to do degrading work like cleaning human fecal matter, they will also figure out ways to deduct from your minimum wage with obligatory uniform rental - somewhere around 200 euros per year for 2 shirts and a jacket. Asked to work shifts with less than 11 hours between them (illegal), no bonus on Sunday work (illegal). Unsurprisingly the shop staff change very fast. After I started, almost everyone was gone within a few months. Only the laziest and most incompetent stick around here.
a typical day in pelco was having to work with costumers to keep them happy and in a clean environment. the mangers were a pleasure to work for. it was an enjoyable job to be part of because all the staff got along with each other.
They treat employees like grown-ups. They share information with employees, listen to their ideas (or better yet, actively seek out and act upon their ideas) and assume they are responsible enough to manage their own time. Also, they treat people fairly. They pay people decently and give them good benefits, including not only decent healthcare but other even rarer essentials, like paid parental leave. And they use lay-offs as a last resort
