    I worked at Costcutter Supermarkets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    plenty of hours up for grabs (even though you had no choice but to work them or risk being sacked from work)

    Cons

    working around 80 hours a week for £3 per hour for a manager who was never there you were left to open and close the store everyday 6:30 am until 9:30pm even on sundays and you were a main keyholder and literally ran the whole store on your own stock and sales

    Advice to Management

    get a revamp and check on your individual stores managers and workforces
