Despite having only been employed here for just over a month, I have gained a pretty good understanding about the company. At first, everything seemed really good and being offered a 20 hour contract was perfect for me. Although I signed a 20 hour contract, you are expected to work 25% extra of those hours, so 25 a week, however I have been being put down for 30 hours a week most weeks, without the management asking me at all? They just expect you to work this, like Dunelm is your only commitment all day everyday. As well as this, it is near to impossible to get even 1 day that you require, off, as your commitments do not matter to the management because one less person means being more understaffed than usual. I live further away from the store than the average employee so it was a risk, understanding that the driving may make me unhappy. I was up for trying something new, but unfortunately, it’s the job that began to make me unhappy and I now find it incredibly challenging to get up and go to work.
Friendly staff that can always help
Unorganised, understaffed and they expect you to be flexible but they cannot be flexible themselves.
