Poor organisation from leaders / managers. Difficult to progress unless you know how to brown nose. Insufficient Staff, over stretched for the amount of work required. Uneven work balance between shifts leading to one shift with a greater work load. Leaders lying about colleagues to other colleagues including talking about private details on investigations / disciplinary. Wage rises based on performance but leaders and managers reluctant to give out, even if you work your backside off. Even if you get above target there is nothing much to show for it other than more work piled on top of you, whilst others who are just on target often don't do there fair share of work with little repremand. With short levels of staff lead to problems covering breaks and with leaders who don't care as long as the money keeps coming through the tills, so staff either miss or leave shops woaffally understaffed. If and when any high value stock goes missing, staff will get investigated even if it is impossible to be able to cover an entire shop with one or two staff members.
A social fund is available to all shifts but leaders make you jump through hoops to get it.
The only real benefit is Staff discount available on fragrance, sun glasses and jewellery but there is a limit on how much.
