Better than minimum wage if you can put your foot down

Rostering department will ask you to work every hour you haven't booked off, (and by the way you basically can't book time off) , no respect for workers, no overtime. If your alternative is the dole or stacking shelves it's a better job, depending on which location you're sent to. The only way to stay sane in this company is to work ONLY the time you say you can work. If you can do that and don't need job security for a long time it can be OK.

Not one thing about this company is professional. The managers are heartless and DO NOT CARE about their staff. It seems like the kind of company that would hire a manager because he goes golfing with another manager. EVERY WEEK there is a problem with YOUR wages that you literally have to annoy them into giving it to you. As for overtime, goodluck. Overtime is calculated over 6 weeks WHICH WAS NOT AGREED UPON BY EMPLOYEES FIRST!! Sunday pay ? Extra 5euro PER DAY not per hour. If you have any kind of issue you would be lucky to get a reply from your site manager for at least 3 days and even at that they will try their best to turn the blame on to you. They go through every loophole they can find to save themselves money (overtime). If you pull them up on anything they will will try their very best to punish you in anyway they can, i.e, drop your hours. Please, please please, if you are desperate for a job please go elsewhere, please take my advice and save your dignity.
