    Pros

    Other staff members were lovely. Hours We’re convinent.

    Cons

    Management. Current manager and new supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Management Treat staff unfair. Don’t talk behind other people’s back. Don’t laugh at customers. Treat everyone with respect. Management should not bully and be aggressive. Should make work environment friendly not threatening then maybe so many people wouldn’t leave! THIS WAS ALL IN THE WANDSWORTH SOUTHSIDE BRANCH AND NOTHING WAS DONE! Never visit there even if you’re a customer you will be spoken to horribly! No customer service at all!
