    I worked at JD Sports Fashion (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get into, reliable for hours, job security, Canteen was good for a factory

    Cons

    Very stressful environment as negative atmosphere from most employees and management, work was fine to me but most struggled and lasted less than 3 days on average, not much H&S application or looking after the workforce.
    EG moving boxes that are up to 25kg and was expected to live them from overhead positions to conveyor at slightly over 1 per second for most of the day would crush most people

    Advice to Management

    Improve relationships with workers and look after their long term health etc and it will look after you.
