Overworked and under appreciated
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Sheffield, South Yorkshire – 18 October 2018
My experience at Home Bargains was a good one to begin with, yet after a year I noticed a massive decline in the workplace and with management,
First of all the workload has gotten to an impossible level as the store has grown but staff numbers have dwindled making every day a losing battle and we get the backlash for it despite us being understaffed.
The management might as well not even be there, They sit around on their phones and don't aid anyone with stock, Leaving no room for respect as they have done nothing to earn any, Of recent have been lying about the workload and make up "deals" to get us clocked out early, yet go against their words and this makes moral plummet.
Management couldn't care less about staff's lives outside work and expect us to put in overtime and work on days off despite not doing this themselves, We are contracted to 20 hours a week yet we do around 30-40 with menial breaks and no thanks or appreciation.
I as well as other colleagues are all set on leaving ASAP as the conditions are just lowering with each working day.
Advice to senior management, Talk to the sales assistants, Monitor your supervisors and lead sales as they abuse their position, slack off and blame us below the food-chain, yet pull the wool over your eyes when you come visit.
