  • Best thing

    Not far from home

    Worst thing

    In 6 year I never got a correct payslip, if I work 6 hour they put through 5.40 so every day I loosing a bit and now we have the wagestream what is a mass stress because I see every day how much money the company steal from me.
    It's a low wage company and you can get even that low wage. Speaking with the managers it's like talking to the wall they never sort out. And don't talk about teamwork when all the tips for food just for the front.
