      - Managers and shift supervisors at my store seem to genuinely care about employees - Surprisingly good pay (got 18.50 as 18 year old) - Work not too full-on except during peak hours (lunch/3pm when all the schoolkids come) - The team members in my store were all super nice and we became close outside of work so it was a really relaxed environment - 10% discount at all stores, 50% discount during a shift - Got to take free food home if you closed - Hours not too bad at a food court store: latest finish is usually 6pm and earliest start for team member is 10am - Training is paid (most of it anyway, had to finish up some at home but only took 30mins) - They stick to rostered hours quite well, never had to stay back past my shift and always started on time


      - It's rare to get a shift on weekends if you are 18+ bcos the schoolkids can work = can really on work on weekdays which means not much shifts if you have uni/other commitments - Work can get boring at times - Not enough opportunities to be trained on other stations + no rotation of work (I've only worked on the register, and people cooking have not worked at the front for a long time)

        Free drinks and food on breaks (it’s okay if you like the food you can choose from)


        Left to deal with heated customers on your own. I received no packing training, only till training (which is pretty easy). My trainer did NOT sign my booklet like they were supposed to as I did not recieve training. Specific team members were constantly singled out in front of colleagues and customers, and called names and belittled. Obvious favouritism of specific team members. One of the male team members whom i worked with (a 20 year old with a girlfriend) made disgusting sexual comments about me (a 16 year old) and sent me sexual messages too. Constantly ridiculed by older team members just for being there (one took a photo of me and another colleague without consent and sent it too a ‘private’ group chat with other team members). I was shouted at by a shift leader whilst I was taking orders and payments in the box as I was ‘only doing 2 jobs’ while she was ‘doing 4’ (she was packing). Minimum wage.

      I have an interview tomorrow where I get to ask questions to the interviewers. I usually ask questions like “how long have you worked here” “what’s your fav thing about working here” along with the obvious “what would be your expectations of me and how do you measure it” any other good ideas for questions?
