Bad place to work.
Very poor communication between menagment. Very little training, you are expected to know everything after day of work. Store always understaffed during busy period. Working week up to 6 days during Christmas time with crazy long shifts (14hrs). Staff underpaid. Poor contracts with as much as 8hours or no contract whatsoever. False promises given about progression onto managment so you could work more hrs and shifts and continue to work hard. When I confronted them about manager position (when one was available in my store) I was ignored and left with no answers.

It’s a job
I worked here for over a year .Started the week of the back Friday sales and was extremely busy , costumers can be good but a lot were awful .All contracts are flexi meaning it’s difficult to plan for days off and you may work after your rostered time depending on the day.If you can get on management great if not it’s bad.New staff had it the hardiest as they were not trained properly and thrown in, however the staff l worked were fantastic and very helpful. You were talked down to , screamed at and insulted over the headsets l never have seen anything like it before .The turnover with staff and management is awful and they do not know what they are doing.A lot of serious changes need to be fast with this company

Very busy/ instable hours
Hours were very hard to maintain a work/life balance with. Contract work so hard to guarantee a future there past the three month intervals for the first year
