Was okay at first but no

Pay minimum wage - not worth it!! Staff got fired and then brought back and it was awful! Mean staff and management. Only think that made it bearable was the few decent staff members

Managerial staff don’t bother

Managerial staff keep themselves away doing their own thing and newer staff have to nearly everything and it’s very paranoia inducing as they seem to be staying away and not wanting to get involved with new staff
