One of the worst company to work for by a long shot. Pay peanuts, no training, hire young staff because its cheap, and drive out staff who they don't like. Very rare if you find someone who actually knows what a resistor even is.
Complete bully and patronising management, Regional managers force experienced staff out just because they don't like them. No praise, false promises and will make you feel horrible about yourself if you don't do so great because nobody comes into your shop all day.
Make Team leaders who open up, close, bank, manage the shop/kpis and staff AND have to guard stock from thief's yet pay them 20p more. UNDERPAID SECURITY GUARDS! they have to stand near the front and greet, yet do everything else while the manager sits in the office doing nothing.
If stuff gets stolen it's your fault because the company have everything expensive out live (good logic there Maplin).
The companys figures are on a sharp decline, and can't even beat last years figures, yet insist on hiring people who know nothing and don't train them.
You really expect a young person on a 5-10 hour contract who works 1-2 days a week to be interested in the company? and wonder why your doing so bad.
Just look at the reviews on facebook/online, you can see for yourselfs. horrible place for and treat its staff like peasants. Their staff turnover is HUGE!
