Look at management! Wilko employ managers across the whole business, with little to no people skills. Extreme hierarchical attitudes and a bullying culture in some teams - look at head office.
Total lack of respect of team members work life balance, people that like to see their children need not apply. Teams are stretched too far - no replacement of staff that have left leaving junior team members to pick up a much senior role with no additional pay/support for the extra responsibility/workload. Basically, review your values and anyone above a red grade should learn what they mean and then live them. Family run it maybe but your management teams are not family friendly or respectful of your teams hard work in any way, shape or form.
