    - only work here if you would like a temporary job - company culture is terrible - bad salary package - hard to reach retail incentive - lack of career advancement - take advantage of you - very high school drama like- be very careful on who you talk to and step your toes with - long working hours with no empathy to work life balance - uncomfortable work uniform and shoes

    Advice to Management

    -The company itself is great however the incentives, career progression is very poor -The people who have been with the company for longer amounts of time are most favoured - Little to no motivation on a daily basis- taken advantage of with little to no appreciation for anything being done - Some current employees need to be gone - Little to no action taken on certain issues brought up in the workforce
