Not paid enough

Worst place

They sell people lies and once you inside thats where you notice that everything was a lie,From the job you applied for to your salary and now that you desperately need a job you don't have much of a say

fast paced

Smollan is a good company however their salaries are not benchmarked. they are passionate about developing people. management styles vary from person to person but transformational leadership is the most practised style.

Time and Management

When it came to time they didn't have a way to track if u at work in time and u live work in time. Management u only see the once a month and meeting only if the is a training or a problem.

Pay people more

I worked at smollans group for 5 years it started off pretty well i loved and enjoyed working for them.The 3 other years working for them was pain .The salary went down instead of it increasing. I would say it was slavery more work less pay.They should just close it they use their works as if they are no humans.

There is always a but...

Worked with some great managers, always understanding and always willing to help but the only thing i couldn't handle was my salary. The salary was just to little for me, I couldn't even afford a second hand car

No growth

No growth within the group and salary too low. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with. Hours are too long for a low salary and workload.

Productive but sometimes slow

Apart from everything at Smollan I learnt about the true basics of interacting with people you meeting for the first time(customers) learnt to adapt to any working environment without no pressure, learnt to treat complaining customers and deal with them the most level headed as possible

Pros

none

Cons

paid overtime
