Well the store I work in has had several managers in 5 years the last one before the one it has now was a really b... breaker when he first come to the store but once settled he was sort of actually ok he totally changed the store working methods and culture and we all enjoyed most of the time there as we knew what was needed and most had learnt a lot from him and given responsibility and he never passed the blame if he had a bad visit from his bosses he took it on the chin. The new manager is new to the company where as the previous one I think he'd done 5 years or more. The new manager is way unfit to work in this store or B&M (if you know what I mean) as you have to be a work horse not a hippo, he blames everyone for mistakes he has caused due to poor management and no communication, try to change things before even know how they work, insults, lies and put EVERYONE down but behind their backs, the worse thing is he has assaulted staff but they don't feel it can be reported as the AM sucks up to him and HR what a joke they are. The girls are a little afraid of him too as bit creepy. He says he was only put in store to check the rumours of bullying going on but was employed weeks before he came to this store and only got it as manager left. B&M culture is work hard, little pay or be punished and treated like a slave, behind the times with systems plus still living in the dark ages. The new manager openly states he don't care about shop lifters as its not his stock but the staff go out of their way to prevent theft which is funny to watch sometimes.
