"Awful."Dec 10, 2017

Former Employee - Management

I worked at Superdrug full-time

Pros

Seeing familiar faces of customers who regularly come in. Some members of staff are really nice to work with there

Cons

BULLY tactics from all angles. No support whatsoever. Absolutely no thank you for hard work, the praise seems to go to the ones who are work shy but can talk the talk when challenged. Unfair... expectations. Managers have an AWFUL and unfair attitude towards their staff, beyond unprofessional. Going home in tears , VERY degrading and uncomfortable place to work. Made to feel at fault for everything that goes wrong.

Advice to Management

Stop bullying and harassing your staff. When seeking advice from HR even they don’t help you. You literally have no support. Train your management how to treat people better rather than use bullying... and intimidating behaviour!!
