Friendly staff, no chance of job progression, limited as a student job
After working in the imperial I've come to appreciate the capability individuals can have at work. How much a difference people can make when they are committed to working together for a common goal.
While it was not gainful employment where i would be willing to found a career upon it did give me the experience of a demanding workplace. Both physically and in terms of organizational skills. Managing work in a timely fashion often times under pressure but being motivated to accomplish the task to help the co-workers around me.
By far the most enjoyable aspect there was the relationships developed with co-workers. Often times with many people working hard it can create a team atmosphere. Where people feel delighted to be able to help one another.
