Found the time volunteering there very enjoyable and learned alot. It is what made me want to go into the retail business.
Dealing with difficult customers was the hardest part of the job and the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting so many different people with so many different personalities

St vincent de paul
St Vincent de paul was volunteering for me because i couldnt get any work so i worked 3 days a week to improve on my jobs skills. It was a great shop it was always busy, always donations coming in, i had to go through all the bags and see what to keep and what not to keep. I would always be pricing up the clothes shoes teddy bears tables etc i would also be dealing with cash.

Inspiring, fun made many friends here
A typical day at work would be taking in stock from donators and analysing then to see if they are worth to put on sale.

I learned loads from this shop. It taught me loads about teamwork. It was an eye opening experience. Management was lovely. We always chatted and had a great laugh. Not only were they lovely to their volunteers but they were importantly lovely to the customers. It was a friendly environment.


The workplace culture was lively. There wasn't many hard elements to the job. The most enjoyable part was the easy paced atmosphere.


Pros

Great to get work experience. Lovely thing to do for Summer volunteering.


Cons

Can't think of any

i found it surprising and eye opening
I worked in their local shop in Crumlin and in their Head Office in Sean McDermott Street. I sorted out stock arriving in and arranging it in the shop so that it was in a presentable condition for sale. The shop was busy. I also worked up the their administration office where I did some filing, stock control.

Productive and friendly workplace
A typical day would consist of labelling and organising the donations , placing them out on display and keeping everything tidy and organised and visually pleasing. I learned how to deal with customers and be considerate and helpful to them .
