      Pros

      Pressure on staff both in lack of staff and hourly rates. I Havant had a pay rise since Bunnings, what's that , 3 years. Company up for sale so unlikely anything will happen before that is concluded.

      Cons

      Pay, wonga, money 💰. Should you have to leave to get a pay rise.
