What is the most stressful part about working at Spar?

3 answers

  • Not been appreciated, not been able to make plans because they hadn't enuf staff so always covering, could be working until 11 at night and back in at half 6 the following morning

  • No help from Area manager or Regional. Manager, Left doing long hours with no support.
    Going in every day because of work load and to cover staff sickness, even on days off, working long shifts 10hours / upwards, never being recognised for increasing store sales. Which was a considerable margin.

    No matter how hard i worked it was never enough. Quartely bonus never paid in full as stupid reasons given not to pay it out, even though I had very high sales, favoritism runs between area manager and managers, I also experienced some inappropriate behaviour. That i wish i now had not run away from. I should of stood up to it. But i was not strong enough to fight back in such a male orientated enviroment. Its also hard to fight when you have bills to pay.I see now i was not the first and will not be the last, this makes me sad, i wish i had not allowed such disrespect to myself and others

    Cutting staff hours to skeleton staff leaving myself to pick up the slack.

    Went off work for mental stress, no help or support, decided to quit.looking back now, I can not believe how appalling i was treated, giving my work ethic and profit margin. I sacrificed my home life, my mental health and my physical health to give them profits. If you become a sales assistant, supervisor or manager, i am gutted for you.
