Fast paced
Great to work there. I learned a lot of new skills about retail and enjoyed the working environment and fast paced the place was.I often stayed until closing time as I had much to do and helped get ready for following day, the best skill I learned was answering the phone which I was very scared of doing.

Love this place... always will
I volunteered here for ten years then got a part time job as a sales assistant. I wish I didn't leave because they were like family but mental health and money issues were a problem at the time. Patient and understanding staff, amazing management. Pleasant customers and I just can't praise them enough.

Awful place to work
Avoid at all costsManagement are awful bullies that make every working day a nightmare! The existing teams will gang up on you and belittle you and destroy your life. To say this is British heart foundation - I have never felt so stressed in my life in a job. The actual job is amazing, the management and culture is disgusting.Lies will be spread, back stabbing happens and nothing is ever good enough. Please please please do not work in the retail side of this business

Don’t feel appreciated
This was WAY more demanding than a normal retail job. A lot of managing and sorting through donations, stressful management and always on edge. Didn’t feel like I was helping a charity, only care about profits

Not many, it was mostly just filling out personal information forms.

There was a lot of Customer service questions, as this is the ONLY main thing the company works on, they also ask your background. You don't have to be from Retail.

They didn't really as It was only a voluntary job
