no work life balance

took 2 months from application to offer. Salary was good but not worth the cons. No work life balance long hours. Health and safety is implied as important but in reality it isn't on the floor and the deliveries. Unrealistic expectations at times. Very little staff discipline. If you happy to not have a balance be a manager here

Pros

salary

Cons

long hours heavy work load no work life balance

Fast paced, hard work, enjoyable

Work like balance was the only hard thing about this job, working 6 days for 6 to 8 weeks at Christmas but overall I enjoyed my time and if didn't have small family would still be there. Pay was average for management but quite low for staff.

Awful place

Horrible company to work for. Bullying management and senior management. Crazy staff rotation. They don't care about long term members at all. No work/life balance whatsoever, you gonna be rang on your day off or you'll be expected to come in and drop all your plans. The job itself isn't bad at all, you can gain many skills like merchandising - only if their work ethic was better and they would treat employees with respect, not like another number. Store managers usually do nothing bar spending the day in the office, but they will expect everyone else to work on highest possible speed. Noone sticks to company policy either, why having it then at all? Won't even mention the hours, managers are doing average of 50h/week and not even getting paid for overtime. I would recommend it for young people as temporary job until they find something better.

Pros

Company invests in trainings eg. Customer service, first aid, forklift, departament trainings

Cons

Long hours, no work life balance, pressure, unfairness, bullying

Overworked under paid

Not a great place to work, poor wages poor hours, expect to do the work of 2 people in alot less hours, no benefits what so ever, sunday rates or overtime if your lucky to get some is only a time and a third, even night work, which is only higher rate from 12am to 6am, I highly recommending affording smyths at all costs

Pros

No pros what so ever

Cons
