    Cons

    Management don’t treat staff well. Double standards. If you work here you need to put your foot down with higher staff sometimes as they can talk down to you so demand the respect your deserve !!!! Always so many changes in the way the system works. One day you’re supposed to do something one way and the next you will get told off for doing that thing which is supposedly the wrong way!!

    Sometime its could be very stressful on sales season, unstable work schedules and managers who treat you badly.
