    Flexible hours. Good money and weekend rates. The work enviroment is pretty good. Relaxed and laid back. Not too much you could complain about

    Annoying customers you have to deal with, nothing you can do about it though. Work can be boring and repetitive, but it can be a good thing while studying.

    Advice to Management

    Minimum contracts are great, more stores should enforce this. Ensure contracts are up to date and check with staff regularly if they need to be adjusted,

    Pros

    Great learning environment and very good people to work with. Enormous opportunities across the business in diversified fields.

    Cons

    Little emphasis on training the support staff (beyond the core operations). Little in strategic thinking, very operational in nature

    Advice to Management

    Move beyond day to day operations and focus on medium-term and long-term strategies. Create short term plans based on that and not the other way around.
