    Not worth it

    Apr 18, 2018 - Assistant Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Due to the nature of the job, you can meet wonderful people and have some unique days at work - I have definitely had some days to remember.

    Cons

    Over-worked! Terrible work-life balance. Poor communication. Managers very out of touch with work done on the front line. Pay out of line with similar roles elsewhere. Often neglect staff wanting to develop in the company because they can’t be bothered with training or working with them. Very “who you know not what you know” with bullying and poor behaviour being accepted for some employees whilst others are harshly treated for minor issues. Too focused on money and don’t bother fixing issues/improving issues which causes more ball ache to people in front line roles.
