      Pros

      I loved my team and the responsibility I was trusted with. I loved the products and genuinely enjoyed my job at times, until...

      Cons

      Managers don't know how to praise the right people and don't notice the people who go above and beyond what they're paid to do. There's no career progression. Management also can be unorganised at times with a lack of communication between the whole management team. They also blame other staff members for their mistakes because they don't want to admit that they were in the wrong. Store closed at 10pm which was tiring. Normally from 7pm you get 0 customers so can drag a lot.
