Can only comment on previous job in a small town store but suffice to say there was/is definitely a clicky culture where some managers treat others differently because they formed “friendly relationships” with customer assistants which goes against the grain of good management practices.Managers are supposed to have “duty of care” for all employees and not take it upon themselves to be over friendly, merging that manager/employee divide which erodes all respect.

Be aware that you have to serve between 13 and 26 weeks 'probationary' period where you are paid less than your colleagues (£8 as opposed to £8.75) Something that is not advertised. They are in no hurry to take you off it even if you are fully capable and trained. So, considering most temp jobs never last that long you will never be paid the advertised rate.
