Productive and fun friendly atmosphere

Stocking shelves, helping customers. We learn new things all the time. Management is great at the moment depends on the managers you get. Culture is so diverse in our store. Meeting up with the bosses expectations. The most enjoyable things are the people I work with and when we can help a customer.

Pros

First job

This was my first job, I had a lot of fun at this place. I was a grocery assistant, thus my role involved stocking the shelves. Each shift began and ended with a team meeting in the storeroom. My colleagues made this job enjoyable but I eventually had to leave because I was only 15/16 at the time and management would constantly extend my shifts from 10pm finish to 11pm which meant I never got home until after midnight on school nights.

Pros

Great team and environment

Cons

Late hours
