    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at The Just Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of freedom / trust to run the store by yourself, train and hire your own staff, etc. Get to make your own mark on the store. Most positions filled internally so career development available - just ask around about salaries first.

    Cons

    Low pay that is relatively unnegotiable. Not enough support from V.M., Regional Managers, etc. CEO and National Manager are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Achieving a UPT of 3 is unattainable and silly.

      Decent pay Good penalty rates

      Cons

      Regional Managers don't care about the employees well being and have unrealistic expectations placed on both managers and regular staff Rosters completed extremely last minute (less than a week before sometimes even a day before the week starts) Shifts are always understaffed. There were 3 or 4 people working every weekend and only 2 would work for the entire day and the other 2 would work for a few hours. The regional...

      Advice to Management

      Have a proper trial before hiring staff. Don't be disorganised have high expectation for the staff to maintain the cleanliness of the store and serve customers when you intentionally understaff stores.

      Can't really think of any negatives on the business side. I guess it just then depends on who you have for a manage.
