Upon joining the team at Spar workers are expected to be extremely punctual, quick on their feet and remember large orders as well as remembering and dietary requirements a customer may have.
Whilst working in this deli, I learned about receiving orders and time management. Remembering what equipment should be cleaned on which day. Ensuring that accidents behind the counter, i.e cuts, and falls, are dealt with appropriately. Manual handling was also completed on-site.

The work environment was stressful at times and sometimes I found myself left alone to deal with many customers.

I worked in this company, to find that the management unless you a yes at every step, dont bother going.
Work here is easy but very busy.

I found here not as good as most places

Theres no pay, I know I was on higher wage than the poor girl that was there a little bit longer than me

Some are very nice to work with but some make your life into depression mood.

- the main manager didnt want to know of bullies if it wasn't coming from the deli manager(whom was the biggest bully along with her so called friend)

Good job for a student or young person. The pace was very slow and sometimes boring but meant for a laid back working environment. Enjoyed my time here.

I worked in Spar and there was the worse Place I had work. All the managers use don't respect the others, are rude and speak with their team as a human's wonner. It was a bad time in my life.

A days work in spar is a 9-10 hour shift pure day. its a 5 day week jobs. a typical day would be busy. sometimes you can collid with your co-workers and it can have tension in the place. when it is busy it can get extremely busy, what i like about these times is that we all pull together and take care of the customers that is infront of us. there are days where you can laugh and enjoy working and have jokes with the customers which i feel that its nice to get to know the regulars who come and and form some sort of communication with hem or friendship which would make you want back to work the next day.
Pros
discounts on lunch
Cons
long hours

Very Challenging job in a very busy deli in Eurospar.
Taught me a lot of responsibilities and how to manage my time.

A lot of things to get done each day, a few examples are ;

-prepare self service salad bar and maintain throughout the day

-serve customers

-prepare prepack food for instore fridge

-maintain shop cleanness

-cook all food at right temperature

-fill out HACCP and other paperwork

-maintain stock

-close up deli and clean everything

-accept delivery


I got along very well with my co-workers, we each allocated a job for ourselves each day so we could get all our tasks completed on time, we were all good at working as a team and as individuals.
Pros
so many things to do through out the day, makes time go quicker
