AIDS of the bookmaking industry
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 16 March 2018
I've worked for 6 months over there and, exactly as I was reading from my fellow Paddy ex-employees, the management doesn't really care about you at all, as long as somebody is behind that counter. I've worked for more than a month for 14,5 hours a day, every two days, just because a murder took place in my shop and nobody was willing to come and work in the shop. When I've tried to explain to my district manager (M. G.) that I can't do it anymore, they've started to put the pressure on me just to raise my hand and leave.
If you really care about your life, your mental health status and about you, in general, find something better. It's true that the money are good, considering other jobs, but the sacrifices you need to do in order to cash that check are worthless.
The money, which aren't great anyway
Terrible management, long hours, lack of protection etc.
