Started working for Macdonald hotels during Christmas period. Sent off all my paperwork to payroll but have been emergency taxed throughout my contract, in the end I had to contact the HMRC to sort out tax code myself. I now need to wait until April to get a refund from tax office.
New manager was extremely poor, promising to find a new job for me once my contract ran out, but not able to confirm until my last day of work! He was also unable to let the company know I had left, so although I have now started a new job, I need to wait another month for my P45. He was generally very unprofessional, unable to acknowledge staff, not sure if this was because I was a woman or just in a lower role than him.
I was very lucky working with some fantastic people in the sales office but I am delighted to have left this business.
Payroll problems, unprofessional management, awful pay
