Work you like a dog, random hours , impossible to make plans
Worked a number years, took all the hours i could to boost pay from my low hours contract, colleagues would regularly ring in sick and then i'd get a last minute phone call.
Bad managers made the good ones lose hope and leave.
Huge staff turnover even in the middle of the worst recession in history such was the toxic atmosphere .
About 80% of customers are really nice and great-full for help, which leaves about 20% complaining about prices of products something which staff have no control over, wanting bicycles fixed for free, demanding ridiculous warranty issues on bicycles, complaining bulbs which have other shop brand names on them were bought last month and should be replaced under warranty.
Not enough staff on duty to run the store.
Very difficult to take a break .
You do get 25% staff discount .
Some items on clearance are very cheap.
25% discount although can still be more expensive than other stores.
Under staffed, ran ragged, worked like a dog, no regard for hard work done by staff just take take take
