    I worked at Kent Building

    Pros

    Other staff are wonderful. Feel bad leaving them there when you leave. Walking out the door when you leave is the only pro to this job.

    Cons

    Brutal management. Zero people management skills. They want you to work 65-70 hours a week and get paid for 40. Zero work life balance. They talk the talk about training and work/ life balance but there is very little training and zero work life balance. Scheduling doesn't allow for any kind of life after work. They expect you to be there an hour and a half before your shift starts and ends but not be paid for it and come in on days off very frequently is executives are visiting from head office. The worst job I've ever had, hands down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to know how your store managers are running the stores. Talk to the staff. One on one. If you know then god help you. You will run out of talent soon. The mount pearl store is bleeding talent quickly.
