Staff is overworked and underpaid

-Supervisors are disrespectful towards staff.-Hours are long and staff has to clean the store, restock items and be cashier's. It's exhausting.-There is always danger of being robbed (I guess it depends on the location)-To at least earn minimum wage, you have to do overtime as if the normal hours are not enough.-System is always offline. It's inconvenient for speedpoint payments -Staff have to take turns to shout in the sound system at customers for in-store deals. It's not fun for everyone.

Pros

Break times are fair

Cons

Too much work, little money

I absolutely loved working there- generally relaxed but driven at the same time. The team spirit was great and kept you wanting to do your best at all times. Management were hands on and always available for any issues you faced. They were hands on and very present.

Pros

Great job security

Stressfull environment

It was a stressful environment to work in as I had a bad manager that hated to see me strive and work hard. Staff get treated unfairly by manager.There is no balance between work and personal life as you more at work then at home. We got no weekends off.The manager doesn't have a professional way of speaking to the staff. It would be a better environment if all the staff members worked as a team.

Pros

Bonus if the store reach the monthly target.

Cons

Got paid under minimum wage.

Stressful environment

That place can make you slave your life away with so little to support your family yet you're always at work. Always tired, doing everything but to get paid for being a cashier. Those were the worst months of my life, I don't regret quitting at all. Too much nepotism.

Pros

Incentives.......sometimes

Cons

Long hours with little pay, no life there
