    I have been working at George part-time

    Pros

    Good and flexible with a student schedule, good friends to work with, good pay for a part-time job, always overtime and incentives, discount card.

    Cons

    The staff love to cause drama, there is an unfair level of hierarchy amongst colleagues who are of the same job role. You will get contracted backshifts and full weekends if you are a student, with no rolling shift patterns.
    No real chance to progress unless you want to do graduate scheme or be a section leader for only a small amount more in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally and be fair with your delegation.
