I’ve worked in retail for ten years now, I took the job because I needed to work, I’m on 9.80 an hour! I work most weekends! Don’t get to see my husband much because I work 3-11 5 days a week, I’ve asked for my shift to be changed but they won’t! I get a half an hour break! Which is not enough! When Im on break I can be called from my break to take the till if its busy so can’t relax on my break! Hate he place
The branch I'm at has its ups and downs. There were a lot of issues (some questionable legal issues such as making staff members pay for drive-offs... has been resolved but after a lot of lash back) I love the staff and supervisors I work with, the manager is okay too and good with giving time off if we need it, good also when we ask for a specific role or time to work. The owner, however, isn't good with communicating with employees and doesn't listen to the feedback we give about some issues.
Other staff, time flexibility
The staff paying for fuel issue, feedback feels like it's not really listened to
Management are horrible , always nagging and creating needless jobs to do , treat people unfairly and generally create an unpleasant working environment. Confiscate people's personal belongings but don't provide a safe place for staff to store their items. Often illegal shift times eg finishing at 10:30pm and being back in at 7am. Roster comes out on a Sunday night and you could be in Monday morning which is ridiculous in my opinion. Minimum wage and most of the time they get your wages wrong anyway and it has to be corrected. Overall an extremely poor place to work and would not recommend to anyone.
Absolutely lovely and friendly floor staff
Having worked in Centra for a few years now ive come to realize that I love working with people, whether it be a regular customer or just somebody passing through the village. It gives you a sense of accomplishment when you can help out somebody who might not be able to do it for themselves or just want to spend those extra few minutes talking to somebody.
Meeting people, helping others
Bad Atmosphere, lack of benefits, no advancement

no oportunity for advancement. bad management
i work 3 days a week on min wage it just about pays my bills what more is there to be said, apart from standing for 8 hours so i go home with swolen legs, there are no staff discounts but its a wonderful place to work
standing for 8 hours with nowhere to sit so i go home with swolen legs
- A bit stressing. - Learnt how to manage time and money - The management is a bit messy - Workplace Culture, is good. - The hardest part of the job was the pressure that they put on you, is little bit overboard. - I enjoyed a lot the people i worked with.
Management and low payment
The management in the centra I work in is really tough. I love the job I do but here is no progress for me in where I am. I place orders and I am left in charge of other staff members but I am not for some reason being promoted and given a title.
Local to my home
Fully charged for lunches, boss never positive always negative
