  • Best thing

    Just the pay .

    Worst thing

    The management team are extremely rude . We don’t choose out breaks they are assigned to us before the shift even starts. The managers are too intrusive . They do not hand out the roles equally leading to some people feeling overworked whilst others do very little . Blatant favouritism. The customers speak to us as if we are stupid. The managers never defend partners against verbally abusive customers. They don’t really care about your physical or mental health , as long as they make enough money is what matters to them .
