Worker
A certain worker didn’t like me and did everything in his power to get me sacked.(the bosses father in law, he succeeded)

I liked the job and the other workers but just couldn’t do anything right in the eyes of the bosses father in law
Pros
Good pay

Boss is a slave driver
Boss is a bully, talks to the staff like something he has trod on. Minimum wage.
He is two faced . Calls all the staff behind their backs. If a thief steals, the boss expects you to pay out of your wages rather than call the police.
Pros
Friendly customers
Cons
None

Not a bad company
Not a bad company if you are the right culture. As I proved because of it being g a family run business that the sons of the original directors haven't got a clue about people skills and wouldn't take responsibility for their own actions, and blame others.

Friendly Work Environment
I enjoy working at Costcutter, however, you're on minimum wage which is only 6 pounds. The management and staff are all lovely and welcoming. The job in itself isn't hard or stressful so can't complain.
Pros
Free dated products and the end of late shift.
Cons
Low Pay

Stressful and poorly managed
Terrible work environment, constant stress and poorly managed shop. you cant really relax into this job, dependant on your manager they can typically be very harsh and will often threaten to deduct your pay for making errors.
Cons
Long hours, no breaks, threats of pay reduction for errors.

Demanding and fast-paced job
It's an 8-hour fast-paced job managing store sales and stocks and handling parcel delivery.
It's a demanding workplace as customers entering the store non-stop and the working hours are not fixed especially at the end of the week.

The hardest part of this job is recommending wines to the customer as for the enjoyable part of this job is when your shift ends.

I do not think the management in costcutters was very good at all. I found them to be very rude and not understanding about circumstances relating to not being able to work. I noticed that they favourited the full time workers and did not care for weekend/ part timers.
