Ok but for the area managers
Area managers would sack store managers to give jobs to there mates, it was common practice.
Some where ok to work fir other not good, Sue Ryder head office didn’t care.

Overall Sue Ryder's is not just somewhere one works or volunteers it is a place that they can grow and learn in an environment that is perfect for it. It also has a strong community and family environment where one can help out the community and feel rewarded.
Pros

Great Atmosphere.
Colleagues make this a place to be, we have a great group of people that I will miss when leaving.
The communication is poor and tends to trickle down to the lower people which in current circumstances is very unsettling.

Poor management
Very poor management in Gloucester/Wales area, bully tactics are the normal and nothing is done when internal complaints are made about her. Told to hardsell lottery tickets for Sue Ryder even the volunteers who don't feel comfortable are made to sell. Was told that sue ryder is a business and not a charity. Told to throw a lot of decent stuff away because it didn't suit her criteria, so a lot of decent donations are thrown away.

Senior Managers need to focus in the right areas
Senior managers need to manage the Regional and Area Managers, some of whom are not up to the job. At store level the atmosphere is really good, with supportive peers and colleges.

Simple and boring work place
I tagged and hung clothes and served customers at the till. It was boring and not many customers came in. Sometimes I sat there for hours doing nothing.

No help or support
Area manager rude, unhelpful, would rarely answer emails etc. Never delivered promised support, ie more staff, better advertising.
Always staff fault.

Mostly enjoyed my time
Very fast paced. A tiring busy day.
I did learn some new skills

A lot of the colleagues are nice, though it can be very clicky.

Management aren't hands on and critical.

Staff are ok
The staff are decent , it’s a good experience and the hours are good. You get till trained and the staff will show you how to use the till . You can have a break as well

Poorl managed
The rate of pay is very low for shop managers. The work is very Labour intense, penny pinching all the time, constant negative feed back and they expect volunteers to do far more than they should. If you're not in with the cliques and voice your opinion then higher management can make life very difficult

Residents came last.
Did not like using the cheapest of products and freezing leftovers for residents meals. Coffee shop was closed down as management couldn't be bothered it was a lovely place for residents and families.

Very good
Every day is different. One day I might be inviting our donors to see a production created by our students at the end of term, and the next I could be writing an application to a potential donor, telling them about the lasting changes we are bringing about to women in prison.
