I worked at Makro

Pros

Some excellent products and good pricing policy.

Cons

One of the most arduos and comprhensive recruitment procedures I have ever experinced only to be treated like a five year old when successfully employed. The management structure is totally autocratic at every level and takes no account of the reasons for your employment in the first place.
Complete lack of any empathy or understanding of employee resources,needs or ambition, at every level of management. There is only one way to do anything and that is the "Makro way" whether or not it is accepted business practise god or bad in any event. Small pathetic detail is attneded to whilst thousands of pounds in waste and losses is ignored even when it has been drawn attention to. A very sad example that is a classic for any business school in how not to run a business. It is intersting to see how long the German parent will allow the current management to continue deluding themselves, supposedly only another six months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand that the majority of managers have a background in the retail grocery trade and their expertise in personnel management and direction is completely governed by their experience of "hire and fire" of shelf stacking staff. Extremely poor management skills at all levels of the company. Itellect levels are generally low and it will come as a shock to anyone with a breadth of experience in other industries. The senior management are completely in the dark as to what is going on generally the MD has the right motives but is poorly assisted by his colleagues who truly do not have the ability to perform to the levels needed in the companies perilous state.
