Customer Service Assistant in Braintree, Essex
on 22 February 2021
Volunteer
Good place to gain customer service experience and other skills if you want to start looking for work in the retail sector. People are nice and there is always something to do. Some days you could be working on the till, sorting out goods or working at the back steam cleaning clothes or pricing items to be taken onto shop floor
Cancer Research UK Volunteer in Corby
on 29 January 2021
Fun Workplace
Good for work experience and younger employees who need a part time activity. Very good for learning skills and having socialable time. Appealing for anyone looking to develop/gain skills that can transfer to any other industry.
Assistant Manager in Dorset
on 21 January 2021
Appalling upper management
Loved working in shop with volunteers and shop manager, an excellent group of friendly hard working people. Upper management was appalling, when issues like a serious safety concern over lone working, or a change of opening hours meaning 2 hours of unpaid time each day. We were told to stop being negative and as a charity free overtime was only fair for us to give. Was a toxic and unpleasant experience dealing with them.Lunch breaks were almost impossible to have as could not leave volunteers alone in shop, without a manager or assistant manager on site and in many cases would have been irresponsible to leave a volunteer alone in busy shop.No support from area managers or above, would never work for them again.
Charity Shop Volunteer in Wellington
on 19 January 2021
Great environment
Everyone was really lovely, I really enjoyed my time there and probably never would have left if it wasn’t for moving area. Great place to gain work experience and great for a first time job even though it’s voluntary and I wasn’t paid there where opportunities for paid positions
Shop Manager in United Kingdom
on 15 January 2021
Rewarding work but very tough
Shops have a remit to make the absolute most profit which is noble but did have a human cost on the staff.Sometimes I felt very unsupported running the shop in a busy city centre where volunteers and item donors found it difficult to travel in. The nature of the job also meant doing a lot of extra time which often worked out with my salary at being below minimum wage. I did love each and every one of my volunteers and they were such a joy to my job.
