Team was wonderful but management created a toxic culture.

I enjoyed working with the customers, although as with all retail jobs, customer service can be very draining sometimes.
The hardest part of the job was trying to juggle too many things as our store was understaffed and our management refused to hire more staff. Our director also had a really bad habit of disappearing from the store when she was supposed - more ... to be working with no notice or explanation. Hence we would have four staff running the store on days when we really needed 6 or 7 which is really exhausting, particularly as our management did not appreciate it or value the hard work we were ... - less
Prosgood staff discounts, nice stores
Constoxic management, underpaid, undervalued, micromanaged, favouritism
