“Staff review , Heanor Derbyshire”

Written on: 08/12/2014 by Tobyharvey (1 review written)

The staff at the Heanor branch in Derbyshire. Are friendly helpful, & always got time for you, very hard working. One staff member is so lovely, my elderly Mother loves her. She is absolutely a credit to the firm. I must say that the music is total rubbish, but staff reassure me they can't change it. This really needs looking at. I over heard a woman saying she dashes in , gets what she wants & leaves, because she can't stand the music. I sometimes rush around too, when the music is very bad… Read Full Review

“Great Experience!!”

Written on: 25/11/2014 by 394Hardy (1 review written)

I recently went to my local Home Bargains store when it opened. The choice was great, and the prices are even better! All the staff were pleasant and seemed very happy to help and work there. I have been back on many occasions and saved a lot of money over high street prices. This branch is always very busy and popular, so I cant just be me! Bright and airy store with a good atmosphere. I was again shopping there yesterday around 2:15pm, and the lady on the til was very helpful. I bought a… Read Full Review

“Don't work here”

Written on: 25/10/2014 by Rosekay (1 review written)

I was happy to begin work in the new Home Bargains store near my home. I was not happy for long! 1. We did agree that on occasion we would be willing to work extra hours at short notice. We did not expect that this would happen continually, and that we would be “told” we would work rather than being asked. It does not seem to occur to the management that sometimes we will have other plans which prevent us staying late or coming in early. For example, on the opening day my shift… Read Full Review

“Dungannon Store Experience”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by Gillespieyi319 (1 review written)

My main experience with home bargains is with the staff. Staff don't look happy in there workplace and there is an awful feeling in the store. I heard from a friend staff shouted at each other at a till I'm front of other customers. If staff shout at each other how can someone walk into the store and feel like asking for assistance is welcomed?… Read Full Review

“Worst delivery service ever.”

Written on: 03/08/2014 by atWood226 (1 review written)

Where do I start. I ordered my item first thing Monday morning and was told I could collect instore in 3 days. Well it's now Friday and I still haven't got it. They have no one you can talk to either as it's only done by email and they never respond. They have taken £60 off my debit card and I'm left with nothing. I feel like I've been mugged!!!… Read Full Review

“Don't work here!”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by Brittanya77 (1 review written)

Where do I start? Although there's plenty of overtime, they prefer to keep everyone on around 20 hours (£100 a week- not much more than dole) and hire more people on part-time, which doesn't even make a dent in your bills or outgoings. If you want a bit of pocket money or you're a student, this place is perfect(short-term). If you want a career, or a decent standard of living, look elsewhere However, the managers are what will make or break your working here. Most are okay, others are just… Read Full Review

“Chadderton Store”

Written on: 12/07/2014 by Emgee63 (1 review written)

Visited this store today en route to another building. Wanted to check out a suitcase displayed on the top shelf and asked a young employee to help reach it. He immediately stopped what he wad doing to help us. Satisfied that the case was suitable I asked if there was another in stock, no problem for the young man to go check. There wasn't one in that store, so he offered to call a store near to my home to see if they had one available, but after several attempts at trying to get through, the… Read Full Review

“Absolutely awful place to work”

Written on: 04/06/2014

I worked here for 8 months, from August 2013 to April 2014, in the Truro, Cornwall store. As a first job I wasn't sure what to expect and was grateful for the opportunity but as time went on the job just got worse and worse. My 'training', if it can be called that, consisted of less than half an hour till training with another employee who, to her credit, was lovely, before I was placed on my own till. I picked up the till work relatively quickly and this was where I was for probably 70% of my… Read Full Review

“Went I to the Biddulph store today for some compost...”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by Nevillefs310 (1 review written)

Went I to the Biddulph store today for some compost because I was doing my garden. I managed tj get a big bag of it and put it into the trolly. I went to the checkout and asked the assistant if he'd help me which he did. While been checked out I decided to buy another so I asked him again if he'd fetch me another. Not only did he fetch it for me he helped to put them in my car. What a star he was… Read Full Review

“I am an ex- employee of Home Bargains”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by Bertie48 (1 review written)

The store manager was lovely, but too easily swayed by understaff, who in my opinion were the worst type of bullies i have ever encountered. They were so immature, that one of the supposed lead sales staff (19 years old) was skipping down the Isle, and was clearly the sidekick of a slightly more senior staff member who was supposedly the assistant manager. They come across as power happy, with no regard for staff who they appear to treat like the store items (disposable commodities). The… Read Full Review

Tjemp's Response to Bertie48's Review

Written on: 31/08/2014

They are power happy. Managers in my one store included:
OAP
Facebook trawler
Chain smokers(The lot of them , and smoked out front)
Mcdonalds chicken 'chain-eater'
walks around with hands in pocket and big cardigan.

Those were the good ones. Worst was
Chav (The dep. manager with scraggly bleach blonde hair with roots showing and bad dental hygiene)

“Poor work place”

Written on: 11/01/2014

I worked at Home bargains as Christmas temp, and I've got to say I would never tell anyone to work with this company again! For starters the managers and shop floor assistants had to much of a close relationship and did not act professional at all! So of the staff were rude and using Language that should not be used within a retail environment. Mangers would often talk about members of staff behind their backs, saying things that should never have been said! As a Christmas temp, myself and… Read Full Review

I got my mum diesel perfume for christmas and the girl at the till asked me if I wanted womens I said YES I didnt notice what it said on it because I thought they were able to sell me some perfume without messing up.

On collection, I found the store to be well set out,clean and nicely presented.What really impressed me so much was the way the staff were so helpful and obliging, no waiting for ages for assistance.The manager himself was courteous, humerous and extremely nice, an asset to the company for sure.I will definitely use this store again, a good shopping… Read Full Review

“Cheap and tacky ”

Written on: 13/12/2013 by Charlie223 (1 review written)

Home Bargains is a rubbish place to work for. Making teenagers work over the legal hours and only have a 15 minute break. They are not flexible with working hours atall and the managers are rude. Speaking from my role inside the job no employees on fill shift enjoy their job role so I suggest no one to work here… Read Full Review
