Unfair work schedules. Suppose to be available for all shifts, day, evenings, and weekends. Some restrict their hours of availability after their three months are up, e.g.. only available for day shift and no weekends. Friends of management. Still, they receive more work hours than someone that has no restrictions on their availability....plus they have evenings and weekends off!

Micromanager from Front Store Manager- would call store from home to see how things were going...I would get text messages to say I forgot to turn off a computer monitor,,Cosmetics Manager totally rude and “scolded” me in front of a new employee about breaks, she’s immature for the position and should go back to school and take some management courses on how to speak to other employees, on application says must be available days, some evenings - I was scheduled for only evening shifts, requested days off without pay 4 weeks in advance and they got rejected with no explanation. Other cashiers and Supervisors are also on the verge of quitting. So happy I got out of that!

Was the worst job ever. No training and owner was very mean. Treated you like a second class citizen. Did NOT like people with any type of disability. If you have any kind of disability do NOT APPLY

Report answer

A new associate had no people management skills. I blame the the company for not giving any training. All the pharmacy staff were very unhappy and looking elsewhere for new jobs. I stuck it out for 1 year believing that things would improve after the new associate "settled in". Unfortunately we lost most of our contracts. I was also given only evening and weekend shifts as the associate declared she would not work any of these. I could not even go to the annual pharmacist conference which I had attended for 10 years. Head office should have a program for all new associates which teaches them how to be respectful of employees. A "wait and observe approach" initially would have been so much better. She questioned everything we did, how and why we did it and felt compelled to change everything, i.e. even placement of the garbage can, stapler, etc. It was pretty much chaos for months as she kept changing her mind and we struggled to catch up. She did not value our input or opinions. This was her first store so the head office people that chose her should have been more involved and given her proper guidance and training.

Because there is no focus on the individuals, the employees, they don't seem to care if you are not happy with your hours been cut, so they can accommodate another p/t employee. they don't care if you have work for them for a long time, senority doesn't seem to matter to them.... that's why they have so much turnover.
