good for part time students, maybe
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Hertfordshire UK – 16 January 2019
The staff for the most part were sound, management had no idea what they were doing. either brand new fresh from a recently closed company, bringing in bad habits or been in the company for so long they were only motivated by targets without care for their staff.
I was there for 5 years, first 2-3 i had an awesome manager, wanting to get me trained up for supervisor, the second manager for the rest of my time there was indifferent. bringing in a new supervisor, threatening everyone with PIPs or loss of jobs just to keep their own.
The hours at first was good, then the company had a bad Christmas and the staff paid for it, going from 3-5 days to 2 at best.
After moving country, i joined up again and it seemed to have gotten worse, less hours, still minimum wage, higher expectations. they didn't seem to care about the staff, even management stated they were happy to "manage" staff out to bring in "the fresh meat"
The "training" is pitiful.. you sit at a computer, watch a few videos, answer common sense questions and you're done, trained up in things that do no affect you in your work.
pay, management, companies expectations
