  • Head office doesn’t understand the frontline

    How we know this

    14% of people think that this employer’s head office or owners have a good understanding of what’s really happening where they work

    Based on information from 7 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, the role of head office should be to support the people on the frontline serving customers.

Here’s a recent review that mentions management:

  • Best thing

    Lone working means no management breathing down your neck. Customers can be friendly and chatty

    Worst thing

    Lone working feels unsafe. No radio so shifts feel twice as long. Expected to do tasks that manager does but for no extra pay. Company treats you like a number.
