Many months ago I wrote a review on Buyology. I felt passionate about the company and the brand to give it my support. Since that time things have occured that mean I cannot give the same support. Poor treatment of staff meant that in less than 6 months nearly 200 staff left or were sacked from...

Having built the store up from nothing, the owners of the company according to staff members blackmailed him out of the business. A fact that they were not happy with. They also tol;d me that loads of staff had been...

More stock than before

Staff cannot keep up

I remember years ago, I must have been about 9 or 10 when I first stepped foot in Hyper Value, it was like the best car boot sale ever, they had absolutely everything. Every weekend when my parents took us grocery shopping we would pass by the store and me and my brothers would beg to go in to...

I have just been to our local Buyology,and have nothing but praise.the shelves were full,lots of choice,the staff were cheerful and also very helpful.the lady that seemed to be in charge was really in charge and was very quick to check on staff that maybe disappeared for a little too long.All in all a good and pleasant trip to the Buyology in Swansea.

where are the signs???

Where to start . In Bridgend Hyper Value closed 2 days before xmas 06 first week of Jan 07 Buyology had opened. Saving the jobs of all the staff who would have been made redundant. The speed at which the shop filled with stock was amazing and any one who remembers how bare and empty hyper value...

“Buyology”

published 25/06/2007

Still trying to think of one

Tatty store, unhelpfull staff, no name products

There seems to be some very differing (and maybe not so impartial) reviews(adverts) for this store. P0rnstar, 5 stars in every category?? List of available products?? Closing and opening dates?? Headline WOW!!!! Hmmmm. Not the sort of thing we want on Ciao. All I can offer is my own limited...

I've just read the review on buyology by s hawken. I thought these reviews were meant to be impartial. Maybe its just coincidence that the manager of the shop is called s hawken!! If this is true then the review is not really valid as its obviously a sales pitch. The other two reviews about the...

I worked for Buyology for 2 years. I have never be made to feel so small in front of customers, especially by the customer services mamager, she is nothing but a bully. The staff are treated like dirt. No matter how desperate you are for a job, do not even consider working for them. They are...

i also worked for buyology i enjoyed my job very much. i worked all through summer holidays and done more than my fair share of overtime with no thanks or respect. i had left after taking 3 days off with my daughter who was ill, i went back for 2 hours then left because i wouldnt exept a warning for me being off with my daughter. i still shop there and everyone i worked with at the time had gone it is the managers that make this job so unsatisfiny. i still shop there the products are good for the value. i wouldnt recomend working there untill the managers are put in to place, and i have noticed that the worst of them all {ray} have gone.

I visited the Weston store recently, as I always used to pop into the shop before - it was then called Hypervalue. It looked tatty from the outside and was very similar inside. Cardboard boxes littered the place and it felt grubby in the shop. Items for sale were OK. Typical pound shop tat. They were selling food items but after seeing animal droppings by the biscuits I put down my basket and left empty handed. I will certainly not be going back to this shop

The stores products are at a high standard considering the price they are sold for... how every its the staff and more the point the managerment that let the company down, without proper contracts being supplied to any member of staff and a total lack of respect for emplyees, i currently work for buyology but am leaving as soon as possible, if it wasn't for the fact that i need the money i would have left ages ago.
