Too many team leaders being rewarded, while staff members who carry out tasks are not. Cleaning tasks not carried out well enough, not enough attention paid to detail
Pros
Free lunch / drinks
Cons
Individuals not rewarded for hard work / effort

Sexist, abusive and incompetent management! No support from management! Stressful environment! Refuse to pay people for the hours worked means they actually pay well below minimum wage! Run by complete control freaks!

My manager would sulk when you’re off sick and berate you’re over the phone and alienate other staff members and play favourites. Overall created an awful environment for anyone not on his good sode

Terrible boss very ignorant. Do not get the hours you should get and get called up at the last minute to not go in, however they often forget to pay you the right amount of hours. Not consulted about shifts and you get scheduled in for days that you already said you couldn't work. Make you do 12 hour shifts without asking. Rota is never ready until the first day of the new week. No work life balance. Badly paid for amount of work.
Pros
Work mates and team.
Cons
Modern day exploitation.

Toxic work environment where you work really hard for minimum reward. Poor pay working 60 hour weeks to live. Not worth hurting your health. Badly managed, bullying environment.

If you want to be worked to the bone with absolutely zero praise for your efforts and suffering then this is the job for you. Amazing in the beginning - showered with benefits and entitlements and opportunities to advance. Terrible once you see how horribly mismanaged and micromanaged the company is. Zero care for human beings and nothing but boosting sales and company growth.

This job was a stop gap for me. The staff were nice, one supervisor kept giving me a hard time for not being good at making sandwiches/salads. There was a good team environment but one manager was very rude to another member of staff in front of the rest of us which was very unprofessional. Later on we got a new manager who was very good and approachable.
Pros
You got your lunch and they used to give the food at the end of the day to a charity
Cons
Some supervisors and Manager
