    I worked at Mecca part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -good education -proactive culture -adding this point because it asked for 5 words.

    Cons

    -There seemed to be an almost refusal to get rid of toxic store managers who pass their toxicities onto their staff and thereby destroying company culture. Repeated complaints about bullying were basically ignored. -Rampant favourtism due to cliques and manager/subordinate fraternising meaning subpar staff got the best promotions. -Most store managers are under 25 with no prior management experience or appropriate training meaning micro managing, scapegoating, obsessions with metrics that place unfair pressure on staff and refusal to take responsibility were the order of the day.
