    "Don't stay long..."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager

    I worked at Swvl full-time

    Pros

    If I have to give a pro, experience.

    Cons

    - Upper management was unrealistic with goal setting.
    - The management in general. They would try to make this job a lot harder than it needed to be. They wanted managers to write an email at the end of each shift about how your day went & what you did today that would make tomorrow better. THIS IS ALL VERY REPETITIVE WORK, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT IN THIS EMAIL. THIS ISN'T AN ENGLISH CLASS.
    - Understaffed and the owners would not listen to employees.
    - High turnover
    - At one point, our A/C stopped working and the inside of the store would be at around 95 degrees. The food was standing in unsafe temperatures, and yet they did not spend money to fix the system.
    - Expected too much for the pay.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you give. Listen to the employees.
