Cold work environment

The job itself is completely fine, very fast-paced, hard work on busy days but easy to get on with. 95% of customers are absolutely lovely. But there's a very cold and un-collaborative atmosphere in the workplace, some staff look down on newer staff and gossip openly. No sense of teamwork. Overall an unpleasant experience.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

The unsupportive environment
