Assistant Manager'A stable but exhausting job with a lot of frustration.'Brisbane, Queensland, Australia3 to 4 years in the role, current employee

The good things

It's a stable job that offers guaranteed weekly hours (as long as you have a permanent contract). There are rules in place to ensure that injury is unlikely. HR and the union tend to be quite proactive when required. I've made a lot of valuable friendships working here.

The challenges

Unsuitable and unapproachable individuals often get promoted to positions of authority while good quality workers get fed up and quit. Wage cuts are extreme. WH&S rules are often so strict that they gets in the way of efficiency. When sales targets are not met, the budget is cut in a vain effort to reclaim lost profits. Lower staff members are overworked. Managers look at numbers as the sole indication of success, rather than customer satisfaction, workplace morale and other variables.
