    The pay is half decent for a student working part time, unfortunately if you’re full time it’s not great to live on.

    Worst thing

    Managers don’t understand sickness, if you miss a shift you’re subjected to a talk where you have to discuss what you can do next time to avoid the illness as if you can predict when that happens. Also if you’re a student and call in sick they accuse you of going out and drinking the night before, and blame the sickness on a “hangover” when infact it turns out to be a medical condition of which they have no sympathy towards you for.
