I liked the fellow colleagues I had, more like a little family 

Things to improve

Career progression, volume of staff at peek times of year, pay and rewards for loyal enployees 

About The Job

Managers have to be willing to work extra hours, be more than flexible to covering shifts- work 8/9 days in a row, do a tasks from tills to stock to normal managerial tasks. Never enough staff
