Work is manageable, colleagues lovely and customers nice. Will be well trained and if doing something unsafe or giving the wrong info, most colleagues will help and correct in encouraging manner. Good work/life balance. Bias at times to certain staff and work can go underappreciated. Poor attitude from long-time staff to certain staff seems to be brushed off at times. Mostly positive time there.

It was a nice place to work and i was looked after. My overall experience from what i remember is it was a good company to work for. I was very young back then but i believe i got along with everyone which was nice to.

A typical day is start at 10, start merchandising up to lunch time, spend another hour merchandising than the rest of the day spent interacting with customers. Co workers are very friendly and easy to get along with which makes it comfortable to work. There is nothing really difficult with the job. The days normally feel like they drag because your stuck in a isle facing off, which id prefer the jobs where I can be hands on for example when we get flat pack furniture I enjoy building them. The most enjoyable part of the job is actually being able to help and advise customers.
