How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Pavers Shoes?

Pros

Some lovely people, very willing to help in most situations and able to provide some training.

Cons

Pay was poor (my last pay was incorrect — still incorrect as of now!). Unreasonable pay for being in customer services / sales. Very regular 'office drama' — employees would often bring external arguments into the office which often caused a poor office atmosphere. Management often sat for 8 hours and didn't do much, furthermore, they'd go to the local garden centre with their favourite few employees for lunches and spend at least 2 hours there (lunch is maximum an hour). Hypocrisy in Management — 'Do as I say, not as I do' — Would tell employees to not cause 'office drama' but they would continue to do the opposite and cause drama themselves. I would often walk into the office without a single 'hello' — I understood that some employees were on calls, but not even management would often say 'Hi' (On some occasions, I would go 3 hours without management realising I was even there — often ending with 'When did you get here?!' — Often felt quite insulting that my presence wasn't really recognised). Part-timers such as myself were often frowned upon and often insulted (will argue management may be saying it jokingly, however it often become monotonous and quite degrading) Although there's some really lovely people working at Pavers, I can't get over the consistent sly comments, severely poor office atmosphere and arguments within the office.

Advice to Management

Take a deep look at who's responsible for what's going wrong and why people keep leaving!
