Very results oriented. If you dont get people signed up, you will be fired sooner rather than later. If youre good at it though, you can just hang out all day and have fun.
Pros
Fun people
Cons
Hard

They expect more than you can give and never reward for your effort. I witnessed racist remarks and bullying on a daily basis. You tread on eggshells as you fear you will be involved in the next argument.
Pros
Pay per hour is good but no overtime pay but they expect you to work
Cons
Too many to mention

I volunteered in Oxfam and it was great. Everyone was patient and kind learnt a lot about patience and hard work. I discovered the skills to quickly adapt to certain situations due to the multiple roles given to me when short on staff, however it was a great experience.

Good for college kids looking for some extra money or sales experience. Don't do it full time for a living, especially outside Dublin. Not for meek people, you will be stuck in the rain for 8 hours a day and at some point you'll probably have to argue with management. Colleagues are always cool people though.
Pros
Sales experience
Cons
Erratic management

I think it is a good way of getting retail experience. You don’t get paid as it is volunteering but you get paid for the food and travel expenses. There are many things you have to deal with but the managers are really friendly and are always ready to help you. Colleagues that I worked with are all very nice. An amazing place to work with and great people too.
Pros
Retail experience, great environment, great people and managers
Cons
Not paid

Lovely place to volunteer, and a good place to gain work experience in retail. Working in one of their bookshops taught me so much about retail in general, along with how to value older books and their other volunteers are all lovely people.Pretty much able to volunteer whenever I liked.
