Secure employment, safe work environment but limited delivery on training & career progression.

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Adelaide (Australia)

ProsSecurity
Many hours available across 7 day - 12 hour daily trading
Some product knowledge education
Many sites

ConsTraining, education and career progression although promised just isn't delivered. South Australia may be most affected by this due to many, many down grades in higher positions, recruitment & training departments and store openings.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease just make sure you deliver on what you promise. The culture has changed for the better but not quite there yet. Best laid plans at the worker level are not delivered and we loose many experienced and dedicated workers as they are simply taken for granted.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
