Does Matalan Retail assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

Discount - 20% this is the only pro

Cons

Expected to work well over and above contracted hours. Unsympathetic to childcare issues.

Advice to Management

Don't put down other members of the management team to people you manage, this is undermining them and is so unprofessional. Stop expecting so much of people. Don't shout and scream at team members as if they're children. Ask for things politely and with manners, instead of just ordering people around. Every single person who has left this store has done so due to the 2 managers, the complaints get passed along to HR, however they constantly fail to act on this making it a miserable place to work.

Unsympathetic to childcare issues.
