Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Dunleer, County Louth – 10 October 2017
A typical day at work was meeting new faces and being able to help the customers with any of their queries. I relearned how to use the till, to do a window dressing, making sure all the stock was properly� displayed on either racks or shelves or in the display cabinets. The management was very helpful when they were needed and gave me constructive criticism� when it was needed. The workplace culture was open and friendly. The hardest part of the job was the leaving and the most enjoyable part of the job was the meeting of new people and making new friends in the workplace.

Shop Assistant/Cashier (Former Employee) – Cabra, County Dublin – 12 August 2016
I enjoyed volunteering with St.Vincent de Paul immensely. It taught me all of the skills necessary for a job in retail while I was giving back to the community at the same time. A typical day in work included sorting through the bags dropped in, arranging the items for sale in the store, cleaning the store and working the till. All worthwhile skills and I learned them all alongside friendly coworkers.
Free tea and refreshments, friendly staff, open workspace
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Dublin – 3 August 2016
I learned useful skills that would be applicable for any kind of work. The work was occasionally stressful, if there weren't many people working and we kept getting new things brought in that needed to be sorted. It could also be very dull, if there were a lot of people working , as there wasn't much that needed doing.
