Charity Shop Volunteer in Aberdeen
on 11 June 2022
Easy going, gained valuable experience
Quite slow at times when there was nothing to do as shop not very busy. No clear manager for a while so often different people would come and go, however this was not much of an issue. Other volunteers were lovely and supportive. Would recommend if you enjoy chatting to customers, sorting through donations etc. and if you would like retail experience as I learned how to use a till.
