I wish to see more improvement in leadership there is lots of favouritism , management is over friendly with staff wich makes it difficult to repremand when it's necessary , we'll like hr to come visit stores and do one on one with staff so they are aware of consern or issues more support in growing within business no choosing your favourite only thank you.

Favorism over race is why I left, it's very hard to grow in the business if you're black. They do have great incentives and the waste is the best, if you're just looking for a hand to mouth job and not really focused on climbing on a better position then go for it.
Pros
Waste, bonuses
Cons
Salary and hours

Is a typical day at work when the volume is high, what I learned about the job is working hard, take responsibilities for what ever u face, when it comes to management must have friendly relationship with ur managers, the hardest part is when u work more than time u have been required, not having enough rest
The most enjoyable time is when the job has done n no mistakes and paying attention to deatila

No growth within the company if you don't push for yourself
