Usually at tills serving customers but would get given a lot of other responsibilities such as facing off the shop, unpacking, cleaning etc. Gained a lot of people skills and communication skills. Good management. Worked with really nice people.

Sales assistant in Centra involves working on the tills, stacking shelves, cleaning floors, cleaning stock rooms, customer service. I learnt a lot from this job as it was my first full time job. Hardest part of the job was juggling hours with college, Now that I am taking a year out of college it will be a lot easier to work more hours without the problem of fitting the hours in with regard to college.
Pros
Valuable lessons learnt as was first proper full-time job.
Cons
Interference with college

Job culture
During my time in Centra I developed many skills such as good communication and interpersonal skills as I was dealing with customers first hand and also had to work as a team with my co workers. I developed good leadership skills as I was often left in the managerial position when the managers were absent from the store. These duties required me to motivate staff and deal with customer complaints as well as ensuring exceptional store standards and the driving of sales. I was often left with the responsibility of opening and closing the shop on weekends. The most enjoyable part of the job was having responsibility and been able to provide excellent customer service.
Pros
Meeting people and having my own responsibility
Cons
not very sociable hours
