Management needs help managing for 1 they are all over the place and managers don't stick around I went through 3 Managers in the past year. Maybe by offering a raise and more hours to part time employees instead they make you feel like you have no choice but to leave because you list them all your concerns and they do nothing about them and instead I feel they rather hirer somebody that's new just so they won't have to give raises and the new hirer is clueless without training and they can be back at the salary rate for this indiviual which means more money for them. The bosses are so lazy they just sit up there in the office and ask employees to move to different sites because they are so under staff. Definitely all employees are not treated fairly! Worst job ever.
