    Cons

    In some stores you will find Management do not take their fair share of responsibility - e.g. will leave early but state on the time-sheets they worked all day, and will shirk the paperwork to you. Dodgy holiday arrangements so favoured staff members receive more pay than they're entitled too. No formal training given, zero reviews on your progress, no sounding board for any concerns, working till 8 am until 10/11pm during the sales, Incorrect payments, or as in my case, i was not paid and then received an aggressive letter threatening to send debt collectors to my home because they 'overpaid' me when in fact they didn't pay me at all. No effort to integrate new members in to the team or support given to new members, which makes life very difficult for a new member of management to assert themselves, bullying is rife, something i noticed in a few stores, not just my own. Overworked, e.g. a 30 hour contract will creep up to a 46 hour week and there's nothing you can do about it. In the end, I suffered a nervous breakdown, and treated for depression, stress and mood management and yet even now, constantly harassed with letters, phone-calls, still not received the pay owed to me and still receiving threatening letters about debt collections and human resources couldn't care less if they tried. This was supposed to be a dream job with amazing career progression, and it's ruined my life. Avoid at all costs!
