Bad management, made to feel like a criminal
Retail Assistant (Current Employee) – Bath – 11 October 2018
Okay so the job in itself isn't all bad, however certain things annoy me, never ever praised no matter how well you do, you could put in all the hours on the earth and you wouldn't get a thank you, no matter what you do right it'll always be small things you do wrong that'll get noticed. You're constantly asked what you're doing as if you're not working which distracts you from your work, cameras are everywhere and your till is spot checked every shift and a bag search every day (Primark don't have an ounce of trust for there employees) made to feel like a criminal, deliveries are generally large and clog up fire exists daily which is a constant threat to health and safety, management are generally very young and don't seem to communicate, as such I generally get a clog up of requests from different managers, also alot of the time managers seem to be in a meeting and nowhere to be found, no discount for employees other than 4 months of the year and even then it's only 10%. The air con is never on, not even in the height of summer, I could ramble on but I'll stop there, I believe Primark need to rethink their policies as many seem old and completely outdated.
Other staff members are great, good customers, time flies by, easy enough work
All the above and more
