    I have been working at Betfred part-time

    Pros

    There are some good, underappreciated people working at Betfred

    Cons

    Good workers are underappreciated
    I've seen managers work constant days of open till close (8-10).
    Shops close at 10 everyday, even on Sundays where business becomes slow, essentially burning money on employment and electricity for a lot of nothing.
    Minimum wage and the work leaves people feeling unfulfilled and even depressed.
    The whole industry exploits people's addictions and you wake up everyday feel you've made the world a worse place.
    General lack of care for people who are ill, they are made to feel like they are to blame.
    It builds a dog eat dog world, where people are made to feel worse that they don't work as much as others.
    Managers have way too much to deal with, no wonder there's a lack of them, especially in rougher areas.
    A sinking industry which will lose out in the not too distant future.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that without the People behind the counter, management doesn't have a job and there is no business.
    The industry and company aren't important and that people's live need to come first. They don't live just to work here, this is to help them live.
