Awesome coworkers, awful managers
Cashier (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 26 June 2017
Day to day affairs weren't so bad, just monotonous tasks and customer interactions, but the management left something to be desired. No sympathy for injuries, sickness, or bereavement leave. If you called out sick, you were treated like garbage, and threatened to be written up because calling out once or twice a year was 'too much'. Pay raises were a joke, with raises based on hours worked, and not on the merit of the employee (union). No benefits for anyone less than full-time, no competitive salary. The most difficult part was dealing with belligerent customers, when the managers did not support their employees upholding the store policy. Staff were thrown under the bus on numerous occasions. By far, the most enjoyable part was bonding with coworkers over these same issues.
