    I worked at DW Sports part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership
    20% discount in shop
    supplied uniform one set which really isn’t enough
    No day is the same and you get to meet different people

    Cons

    Don’t give two hoots if you are freezing standing at the front desk it’s too bad
    No sick pay , no maternity leave for part time staff,
    Endless “extras” added to your work load with no extra pay.
    No extra in the hourly rate for ungodly hours of opening.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to the little people!
    Abit of flexibility for people with families and you wouldn’t have such a high turnover
