I left this company within a week of starting. I had very little training and was suddenly given a key four days into my first week and told I had to do the opens on my own from 5:30am - 10:30am. I wasn’t told what went into each sandwich, didn’t know how to do temp checks, how to do the bread count, what cleaning chemicals to use etc. There was no training at all! As someone who has been a supervisor in previous jobs I was shocked, I would never train anyone like this.. I didn’t even know how to use their till system!
I was also told to do the lates which you have to work on your own from 5pm to gone past midnight. As a girl this terrified me and I didn’t feel safe, so when I said this to the manager, baring in mind I also don’t drive, I was told, “Well that’s what street lights are for.” We have a nightclub next to us and the bouncer for the store left.. that’s scary lone working in that situation.
You never see management, they’re always upstairs.
Rubbish hours, even worse pay. Had all I worked for taken away from me as it was for my ‘training’, so I’ve really struggled this month. Luckily I have a new job to go to, one where everyone is a team and works together.
Is it worth it? do you get enough money to continue with your life you don't have to pay for food so I assume that helps but all and all Is it worth it?
This salary is only for pocket money, i can't support family with this poor salary.
Try and get to know staff on a personal level to know how much each individual helps and contributes to avoid bias and unfair decisions when it comes to disciplining and dismissing staff. I have seen many people leave and I feel a lot of it is based on favoritism rather than work ethic.
Have to work more time for unpaid breaks forced on you so will loose hours for such. But they don’t like to say go for a break and they won’t. So you get time taken off for no reason unless you close the shop and do nothing for half hour you don’t see a benefit!
