The work was fairly typical of a retail job. My main criticism was with the management. They were extremely unfriendly and unapproachable. They rarely had the lunch/break schedule done out so staff often had to seek out a manager to ask to take a break. Hours were long and pay was poor. Shifts were often changed without any notice. The other staff were generally friendly. We started the job untrained and unable to use the tills, other members of staff had to guide us through it.

Low pay

Unprofessional management


Less weekly hours contract.


Your roster can be changed over night without you being informed, its just not a happy place to work for.


Only positive is the colleagues you work with.
