Broken promises and bad management.

Sale Assistant (Current Employee)
Liverpool, England (UK)

ProsThe wage is ok and the store has a good reputation/ cheap prices. 15% discount for employees.

ConsI was offered time and a third for working Sundays and told I would get paid for working over time. This did not happen as my co-workers and I were made to sign a second contract and were rushed to do so. The management do not treat the employees well and there is little to no chance of promotion. The shutters are closed at closing time and the employees are made to stay behind and clean the store without pay for overtime. Shifts and working hours change often.

Advice to Senior ManagementAttempt to create a team spirit or some sort of pleasant working environment rather than putting a heavy work load on a disgruntled, unhappy workforce.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
