The shop was a very busy charity shop with such a great bunch of co- workers , always so kind and helpful. It was layed out very well and kept tidy all of the time. The things i would normally get up to would be tagging and pricing items of clothing, children's toys, books, cd's and other bits and bobs.Cleaning the area so to make it appealing to customers, and use of the cashier till and helping customers with any queries.

The reason that the rating is low on salary is because it was a charity. I thoroughly enjoyed working there and my fellow workers are all top people and the small management team are great to work with as part of a team. My day would often consist of
Opening the store and prepping it for business
Dealing with customers on a personal basis and serving on a til and dealing with refunds and customer complaints
Loading stock out the back and sorting out clothing and other items to be sold through the store or recycled

A typical day working in Barnardos required stock control display of store and display of store window. The shop was continuously changed around shelves being moved sections of clothing changed to different areas etc. so it required a lot of organising. co- workers were funny and kind as i was only 15 at the time it was my transition year work experience/commuinity action and they made me feel really welcome. i learnt a lot in barnardos something new everyday my co workers often said i am very mature and efficient and catch onto things quite quickly. there wasnt anything extremely difficult about the job and everything about it was enjoyable even when up to the ceiling with new stock arriving and having to go through every single item it was still an enjoyable enviornment to be in.
