Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

As it was my first job, and i was still at school, I was given flexible working hours around my school work.

Cons

Terrible pay, and often kept after shift was over if the work wasnt completed, but this would be unpaid. Very little training offered.

Advice to Management

More training should be offered.

    I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The wage is ok and the store has a good reputation/ cheap prices. 15% discount for employees.

    Cons

    I was offered time and a third for working Sundays and told I would get paid for working over time. This did not happen as my co-workers and I were made to sign a second contract and were rushed to do so. The management do not treat the employees well and there is little to no chance of promotion. The shutters are closed at closing time and the employees are made to stay behind and clean the store without pay for overtime. Shifts and working hours change often.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to create a team spirit or some sort of pleasant working environment rather than putting a heavy work load on a disgruntled, unhappy workforce.

    I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff are all ususally very nice t work with, discounts are good and the company is very supportive

    Cons

    i have barely had any shifts in the past two months, in february i earned £15 in one 3 hour shift and this month i have had 5.5 hours of shifts this month, as i have to pay for food, you can imagine how hungry i've been this past month

    Advice to Management

    management should spread the hours around staff more equally, i believe a couple of hours off the regular full-time staff each week would not be too bad and the newer, part-time staff could get a bit more money in their pockets then
