When I started in Centra, it was a nice place, the staff were nice, and the owner was ok. I worked there for 5 years and as time went on even though the staff were nice, the owner of the store was not a nice person. They would shout at you for doing a task wrong or not doing it to the owners specification and many a time I saw staff members quit on the stop from the abuse that the owner was giving them. the owner was quite a rude person who on many occasions insulted some of the customers that came in to the store. Although I gained loads of experience from the other people there, and my floor manager was the nicest person you could ever meet, I was constantly afraid of the owner, you just didnt know when you were in their firing line!

Face paced environment that can be stressful but then overall experience and team was comfortable place to work. I would recommend it for someone starting off in employment or college students as it can help contribute towards fees .
Pros
Free tea

Working in Centra can have both pros and cons. I do feel that the area associated with management could be improved I.e. a more fair and approachable team of management in which will make the employees feel more relaxed within the workplace.
Pros
Friendly staff
