    I worked at Evans Cycles (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers are OK - you get discounts on products.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management to shop staff; training lacking, and what there is not really relevant to what you actually do every day.

    Advice to Management

    It's your job to make sure shop staff are up to speed with procedures and new products. Minimum wage employees should not be expected to spend their own spare time "keeping up to date with new trends online" - if you want us to sell it, you should let us know about it.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Evans Cycles (London, England (UK)) in February-2014.

    Interview

    Got contacted by a headhunter who asked me if I would like to take part on a process to hire an Assistant Store Manager for Evans Cycles. After saying Yes, I got screened and got a job interview with the Area Manager for the Region.
