The job was great fit for me but the pay was not enough compared to the amount of work I was doing. I have learnt how to manage it all by myself, this includes managing the fuel system, managing the till alongside lottery and paypoint and serving customers of course and stacking shelves.
Having retired from full time employment secured this position on a part time basis. Fully experienced in a sales enviroment for over 30 plus years the position applied for was totally suitable. Customer based in a very busy environment involving fuel sales along with mini supermarket style shopping under the Spa banner. Required to carry out regular health and safety, first aid, and fire and security sessions duly certified...
Eight hour shifts
Working the night shifts usually involved serving customers through the hatch where as a cashier you would have to do the running around and retrieve the products for the customers. There was not much communication with the customers, so that was the only downside to the job, as by the time customers were allowed to come inside the shop my shift would usually finish. Night shifts involved, serving, stocking, cleaning, stock room duties, basically I would get the shop ready for the morning rush and repeat duties the next day which were probably the hardest parts of the job but were obligatory and had to be done. When i began the job, I think within a month I had learned quite a lot in terms of paper work, taking fuel delivery etc, which were mostly a managerial roles job, and within a year I am able to complete most manager tasks and have been approached by the manager for a partnership role on a different site. The only downside to the job is that when there is a drive off (Bilking) or any mistakes made with paperwork you have to cover the costs of what ever has been stolen or what has been fined, which I think is not acceptable and against the law (workers rights). but overall it is a friendly environment and if you do as told, mix in and communicate with other work colleagues it is quite enjoyable.
pay fr drive offs
Management genuinely cares about the advancement of it's employees. Free lunches and open PTO make it for a excellent place of employment. Salary is quite low though. Will be finding other employment if salary does not increase with the cost of living in Manchester,
Free lunch and accommodation
Work as anything other than a cashier and you will be fine. Most of the retailers do not know the legislation well enough to do this. I work on a one man site run by MRH, you do not get breaks, it's kind of a run out back and stuff your face between customers kind of thing. holidays are only if there are enough staff to cover you. The shifts can go from anywhere to 7hrs to 20 depending on the management. I worked 30 days in a row once with shifts varying from 6hrs to 14. With no breaks. The head office will demand you work solidly the entire time, the work itself is not that bad, ignoring the violent customers that are inevitable (keep in mind you work on your own in some places). Worst is the higher ups care greatly about appearances and customer service, however, not so much about the cashiers. Oh, in most sites and I cannot speak for all, losses from some drive offs, tills, lottery and paypoint, are deducted from your minimum wages. As I said, I cannot speak for all sites, my experience is with MRH retail which really should be investigated properly but hey, what do I know?
