    Yep, work loads more hours than you are paid for, if you don't they persecute you. Management are horrible, this Partners shit is a load of nonsense. Best thing I ever did was resign after 14 years of service.

    My god you guys down below just described my store exactly!!! And bullying is an understatement. No staff, expect you to work fingers to the bone, the pay is really unfair and revolves around favouritism. Managers!? Well... I've never known a nastier bunch of people in my life and I've work in other retail outlets previous.
