Casual sales assistant L2

Casual Sales Zero Hour (Current Employee)
Liverpool, England (UK)

ProsNone at all horrible company

ConsNo training at all, no breaks, chav staff, rude customers,uniform to small or big, dangerous environment, very bad hours, not paid on time or short paid, no trust in staff cameras even in toilets! Rota changed with no notice at all. AVOID THIS PLACE A JOB ANYWHERE ELSE WOULD BE BETTER

Advice to Senior ManagementGet new management immediately and treat the staff like human beings. At least 2 full days training and product knowledge with monthly extra training. If things carry on the way they are this store will go very soon. Also stop banging on about bags for life and insoles, Mike is a billionaire so its not like it matters people shop there because its cheap and there on benefits etc so as if they want to be pushed to buy unwanted crap. Like I said I've never worked in such a bad retail enviroment, its the blind leading the blind.

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