      Worst Employer I’ve ever worked for

      Pros

      Nil - don’t waste your time

      Cons

      Franchised owners of City and Western Sydney don’t know anything about running running a business correctly. They will up their prices if you try book in person/ phone, despite online prices clearly advertised for half the price Do not care about staff and frequently try to intimidate, bully and even harass staff. Underpay staff and don’t even have a HR department forcing staff to quit or seek legal action. Save yourself and don’t even bother dealing with these franchises owned by John and Murari.
