Worked in two different stores over the span of two years, with both being as bad as each other. An alright little part time job for money,
but if you have any other commitments in life, this is the worst place possible to work. Contracted hours basically mean nothing, 12 hours becomes 24 and your not allowed to bat an eye. Constantly bombarded with additional shifts on my days off, which they just expect you to be able to work by the way.
Avoid fill shift at all costs, its literally the worst thing possible. I can't count the amount of times I came to work, only to be told to come back in 3 hours, because there was no delivery. Even when you are stacking shelves, you will be constantly harassed by management for being to slow, even though your cage is the size of Mount Everest. Very rarely, if ever, got given my break on time. I often had to be there for 6ish hours before they even offered me one, absolute slave labour. Management are beyond awful, only caring about themselves and their bonuses, god forbid you ask them for a favour or a shift change. Despite asking to be given my contracted hours, I was constantly rebuked and told it wasn't possible.
The only good thing about this place is the other people working there, who hate it as much as you do. I guarantee you will spend half of your shifts debating whether or not you should apply to the Tesco next door.
Oh and by the way, you're just expected to do a stock take every 12 weeks, so have fun with that 14 hour shift and taxi home at 1am (which they make you pay).
Staff are the only redeeming factor. Also get a few cute animals come in every now again, always nice to see
Nothing, apart from the staff and occasional pet dog.
