    • Never know when you going to start or finish a shift due to no set rota for any set week so that can be a little annoying because you don’t know when at all you will finish.

    • Company doesn’t seem to care about you at all, including your personal health

    • Very repetitive job roles every shift, nothing changes and can always expect the same every day which is boring and can drain down your self esteem and even effect one mental health
