It is not a busy shop as it is a charity shop but u will always find something to do there.When making a sale i find the best way to make a customer buy more is if u show them what u think would suit them, tell them what colour suits them, what style is in. This always makes a customer want to buy an object that extra bit more once they hear someone else's opinion i find.

The work was volunteer, but I could have an experience of what it's like to work in another country with people from different places. Understand how a charity shop works, receive products, separate, identify what is good and what is not.
The work is quiet, need to keep the store clean, when has donation separate what goes into store, put labels with prices and sizes, etc.

Being part of a project whose goal is to help people in Africa is enriching. And I have had the opportunity to get in touch with the local Irish culture and learn how to work with Dublin customers.

Productive and fun workplace .I would come in at 9, go out the back go trough all the new stock and put everything new out of the shelves, i would then go trough all the dividers on the shelves and replace the broken ones with new ones, then go trough the make up draws and sort them out, put new things out and throw out all the stock people couldn't buy, my co-workers were very helpful, the hardest part of the job was pulling all the stuff on the shelves forward it was very tiring and took a lot of time, the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and learning new things
Pros
really quiet environment
Cons
no lunch hours
