    I have been working at QD Stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    work hard and you know your job is not going anywhere
    you are given a multitude of roles depending on what is best; you aren't just one thing
    the supervisors will be there for you if something happens
    makeup is allowed

    Cons

    minimum wage
    not always as professional as some supermarkets
    often secondhand uniform

    Advice to Management

    minimum wage is not competitive wage; stop saying it is you're giving people the complete wrong idea about wages to expect

    I have been working at QD Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great shop to work in. The manager has a great sense of humour, who treats all the staff fairly and his door is always open should you need a chat. He is very genuine who cares about you not just as a number but a person .It makes you want to give 100% every day. If I need a day off and give a weeks' notice, I have always been accommodated. Work varies between tills and replenishment. Everyone in the store supports and helps each other and I enjoy everyones company.

    Cons

    Minimum wage and some awful customers who think because you work for a discount retailer, they can treat you like dirt.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Don't leave please!
