Featured Review

Current Contractor - Sales Associate

I have been working at New Look for more than 10 years

Pros

Great value for money

Cons

There is none that I can think of

Current Employee - Part Time Assistant

I have been working at Matalan Retail part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nice staff and store management

Cons

Recently I have witnessed some horrid and completely uncalled-for nasty verbal abuse target and shop floor staff who have been trying to help.....this is totally unacceptable and management need to... start looking at procedures to deal with and prevent further abuse.

Advice to Management

Firstly put up zero tolerance or similar signs behind cash desks, as very often these are the front line, also advise that any abusive behaviour will result in the person being removed from store and... banned from returning. You say yr staff are family.....well would you let yr wife or kids stand on the shop floor while abuse is being hurled at you?
