I’d assess every store manager as to how efficient, compassionate and empathetic they and their management team were. A lot (almost all) expect their staff to eat, sleep and breathe mothercare. When staff have personal changes or problems such as childcare issues or bereavement, they are met with hostile, unhelpful attitudes. When you are not in a management ‘click’ you can be used as a dogs body, given unsuitable shifts but still expected to turn up, spoken too like dirt and given very unfair or unrealistic tasks to carry out. Whilst this is effecting the staffs day to day lives, their happiness and mental health in general, the management could not care any less.
This is why mothercare has so many employees come and leave very shortly. It also affects the atmosphere in store, making you feel bullied, intimidated and generally not wanting to be there, something no employee should ever feel.
