It was pretty basic and peaceful work. The managers were very lenient and understanding that some days I couldn't go to work due to illness. The hardest part of the job was getting to know where everything went.
Pros
Lunch
Cons
Boring

No set hours, even though you have a contract, you might only get 12 hours some weeks, and then 30 hours another week. Too many new staff been taken on, and then he starts given them all the hours, and cuts all the other people's hours. Too much favouritism for 1 staff member in particular, so very low morale. No praise, only great to criticise. No internal rewards or raises in wages, only the minimum. Would be a great store to work in, if we had a proper boss/ manager over us
Pros
Nice staff
Cons
Bad bad management

Absolutely amazing environment. Started there in June and I couldn't be happier. Not only are the management great, my co-workers are some of the nicest people I've ever met. After a month of working there, I asked would it be possible to receive more hours, and not even a week later I got them. The benefits are great, my paycheck is great. Couldn't of asked for a better experience. 10/10 :)
Pros
Excellent management, great hours

I enjoyed doing work experience in this shop. I was working for around six hours. I was stacking the shelves, keeping the shop clean and doing what I was asked to do. I learned how to work with customers and work with work colleagues better. I enjoyed working with customers, tidying the products on the shelves and when they let me do the price checks and order products. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy boxes.

I learned a lot on my 2 weeks work experience in this placement. I love to work with people and customers. I learned how impotant pulling up foods are and what to do when an incident occurs. I learned great communication skills and learned how to work on my own initative. I learned it is very important to be in and on time everyday.

- Sign in and start unloading whatever packages has to be unloaded, when I finish this I would proceed in whatever task has to be complete assigned for that day. - How retail works and how retail is behind closed curtains and how to proparly interact with customers. -Management was amazing, really fair and they cared about there staff. - I got on so well with my co-workers and I have made friends from my work place that I'm still very close to. -The hardest part of the job was the cleaning process but even at that is was fine and I did not mind it. - I enjoyed the over all experience with working in retail and learning new things, meeting people and over all committing to the job.
Pros
customer interaction
Cons
limit room for development
