Store manager is completely dismissive thinks he knows it all .
Ten years later and still stuck in a position which should be given as an opportunity to the next person. Crazy politics in this company its not how good you are at your job its who you know.

Where do I even begin...
Company is obsessed with the budget and staying within the budget despite making more money than ever previously before. This results in staff working their lowest contracted hours and usually most staff are scheduled to work weekends when its the busiest. However despite this, there is never enough staff on to accommodate such an influx of customers. They make do with the smallest amount of staff possible whilst complaining that nothing is being done and adding more pressure onto colleagues. Often I found myself trying to be in 3 places at once when that was simply not possible. Very unwilling to hire new staff despite there being a dire need for it. Management claim to be very accommodating to their staff whilst also being very two faced and clearly favouring certain colleagues. Sometimes a huge deal is made off of a day off request form even of given weeks in advance because "the rosters are already done". The hours - I cannot stress this enough: when working here, you will feel like you never leave the place. Whether you are given constant middle shifts or a late followed by an early, after a while you just feel like you live in there. I often found most of my rosters to be near identical from week to week because management were unwilling to train more staff on different areas of the shop, instead just relying on the same people the whole time to do that one job. You basically start to feel like a hamster stuck in a cage and running on that hamster wheel almost everyday. Very little variety in the work expected to be done by colleagues. Also if you showed that you are proactive and have initiative, you would be exploited to no end by upper colleagues who would often dump their workload onto you. Not worth sacrificing your social life, mental wellbeing and sanity for a company that at the end of the day only cares about profits. I often found that the only redeemable thing about my days were my colleagues however most were only on temporary contracts and were let go on a moments notice. Sometimes you can be rostered with some of the most useless people imaginable which just makes the evening drag more than it already does and you're expected to do your work and the work of others. Some colleagues get the smallest amount of power and they let it go to their head, making them act all high and mighty despite having the same position as you.

They think you have no life outside working for them.
Boring. Management treat people poorly. Short notice change of shift arrangements happens often. And do not dare tell them you have a life outside of work and cannot just drop everything when they phone looking for you to come in.
