Start treating everyone fairly before they get to a situation not to far off where they can't recruit because there reputation for poor staff treatment is so bad very little people want to work for them,they used to treat people with respect and value them sadly that time has gone along with a lot of good loyal staff!! please wake up while you still have a business left!!

They don't value employees ..got a warning for leaving a minute after finishing time.. ridiculous..told them to stick it. It's all stick and no carrot. Managers don't know how to handle people..

Value your employees. Threatening with disciplinary action, the absolutely disgusting absence policy heart attack sick note doesn’t matter pretty much 3 and your out. Wake up! Most people are off sick because guess what... they are ill. Fear is neither a motivator or benificial to ANYONE. When your employees try to speak up they are told not to speak for others as to create a union would be undermining the bullying culture in store. One rule for managers and another for CA. The management lie to protect each other this is a FACT
