    I worked at Betfred part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours there if you want overtime and to make more money.

    Cons

    Push towards management so that you can open and close their shop. Working conditions are not the best. Senior management do not praise when you exceed your job expectations, always find a negative.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff. Take into account their opinions to make them feel valued as a member of staff. Do not just contact employees about negatives, think more about the positive things that people are doing in the branches. Also, do not base the bonus on attendance only.
