    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. I don't want to give advise to management. The management is fine. You just have a few who take their job too serious.

    Pros

    To get more skills and knowledge which i did not experience in my previous work and mingle with co worker.

    follow instruction and always have a presence of mind. There is unity and coordination among each other with the team.

    Pros

    Fantastic, talented people, there when you need them, unless they're in a meeting

    Cons

    mid-level management overworked, doesn't know how to do the people side all that great, there's chaos

    Advice to Management

    help structure people to use their time more meaningfully, train your mid-level managers and give assistant to senior level staff the tools (trainings) to improve performance and save time. too much time sitting in meetings.

    Pros

    - Some decent co-workers, management and supervisors that are friendly and willing to help you. - Store interior might be a lot less depressing depending on your location

    Cons

    - You can get good hours and better positions if you know people. If you're a knowledgeable and experienced worker but don't have the connections, forget it. Favoritism and nepotism run wild. - Despite a few nice people, workplace culture can be pretty nasty. It's definitely not a very safe environment. Involves a good amount of walking on eggshells. A lot of gossip, sexism, bullying, name-calling, backstabbing and unnecessary blaming goes on, especially from the people who are favored and don't understand what their actual place in the workplace is. - Some managers and supervisors and unnecessarily cruel and power hungry. Often making up new rules and procedures every week. You maybe be told to do one thing one week and get yelled at for doing that exact thing the next week. - Budget cuts and lack of staff. Because of this you will lose hours and the shifts you do work you'll be working the amount of work meant for 2 or 3 which is really stressful and might cause you to stay later than expected. - Unforgiving attitude towards trivial mistakes. - Union means that people who should be fired (e.g. the bullies) won't be.

    Advice to Management

    Take suggestions from employees and complaints regarding bullying more seriously to try and improve culture. No more arbitrary rules.
