Each day that passes you become more and more demotivated. Being paid over £3K less each year compared to colleges who have the same job because of one’s age, even when I do two employee’s jobs is wrong and diminishing Not only this, but the poor response & attitudes by our Head-Office is even worse; they still haven’t set up my pension and do near-to-nothing for staff enquiries! An email was sent to the employee of interest and only got a response over two months later. The store and functionality of our rotas haven’t improved since the store was acquired from Wyevale, with the customers’ attitudes and loyalty wearing thin due to the slow, manic restorations that take place. There’s nowhere for staff to relax and eat during breaks due to the staff kitchen‘s ceiling regularly collapsing and leaking when it rains outside. Nothing will get done soon, and to say that Dobbies treat all staff equal & fair is false and misleading. If you don’t mind fulfilling two or three employees’ jobs simultaneously everyday, while being paid £370 a month less than slightly older colleagues, this is the job for you! 😁

If you rounded up a field full of sheep with a limbless monkey, Head-Office would still cause more of a farce by inviting customers to non/existent charity/Xmas events...
