Avoid Retail Like The Plague
Avoid privately owned "Dealer" Stores like the plague, the manager's don't care about staff at all, it's almost impossible to request cover or leave, it is also unfair because corporate retail stores get paid more and their commission scheme is better. At a dealer store you get minimum wage and an almost impossible to achieve sales target, and you have to hit the target to get your commission. Do yourself a favour and don't work for 2 degrees retail, you're better off at mcdonalds or burger king.
Tip to management: Pay your employees better and actually look after them, I've heard other staff members complain that the bossman doesn't care if you're sick and still expects you to show up. No wonder all your staff are leaving/already left.
Some workmates were cool
Managers didn't care about you, minimum wage
