Worst part time retail job
Sales Associate (Бывший сотрудник) – Hampstead, Greater London – 17 марта 2019
First of all, the pay was quite bad for a 'rich' area at only £8.03. The rota was constantly released late. It didn't make it any better when availability was ignored. As a new starter, I was barely trained and I was looked down at for not knowing how to do something when I'm clearly new to the company. I wasn't even given guidance on how to do a task better.
Management was ridiculous, I've had better interactions with the customers than I did with the managers. Was told as an employee you HAVE to do more than your contracted hours. Overtime is a choice anywhere else and if you're not available, you're not available. But in gap, extra hours are literally forced upon you, you have no choice. Was also told that you're not allowed to prioritise your own important commitments (uni etc) over the company. I clearly applied for a part time role because I have other commitments, so to be told that I'm not allowed to prioritise my studies over gap makes no sense.
I've worked for better.
Aside from all of this, normal staff were nice, covers/managers from other stores were really helpful.
