People getting promoted just because they know someone or they’re agreeing with the management even if it’s wrong.

    Stressful, you watch the managment squeeze and squeeze to see how many people they can tell to go home for a shift then complain they lack the staff, Issues are brought up but never acknowledged or even mentioned again and are given the Mystical “We’re working on it” title. You come in to work, talk a but to colleagues, eat at the break. And go home
