    HR in my store are unprofessional, rude and unapproachable

    Advice to Management

    Professionalism, cut out the favouritism, be grateful and thank staff for their hard work.. HR in Mary street make people cry on a daily basis, we are afraid of them and when we approach the HR offices they don’t even look up when speaking to us, they are intimidating
