    I worked at Bershka part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Plus? I don't think there's any. Maybe the salary was quite acceptable. Some colleagues maybe.

    Cons

    Oh, there's a lot minus here. All of the older (not thinking about the age obv.) were stuck-up, grumpy and I don't know. How can they be like such a hypocrit? They expect a lot of things from you but they're just always chit-chat with each other. The managers are the worst. They talking about each other's back also the employee's back. This is not a professional behave for a manager. And of course I was fired because of trumped reason during the pandemic.
