Eurospar Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
SPAR, originally DESPAR, is a Dutch multinational franchise that manages independently owned and operated food retail stores. It was founded in the Netherlands in 1932, by Adriaan van Well, and now consists of more than 13,112 stores in 48 countries.
Eurospar employees are overworked, underpaid, and don't have enough support from management, there is no room to grow and a small office environment, according to a former employee at glassdoor.com

Managers slow at giving small change to your till. Sexism in the shop I worked in- Women were told to stay on tills to be the "face" for the customers.
