Interesting

Since I have been with contract option part time, it has been quite productive. I have have had shifts at least once every week since I have began working there. Like most agencies, Contract Options work with other company's, which mean not all shifts will be in the same the same company. I guess it is fun in a way because which means I get to work different people each time. This also brings a different experience each shift, some shift I might find myself doing more, such as cleaning or moving stocks around or prepare food or some other shift I might find myself interacting with customers. The only issue I found interesting when working with Contract Options is Transport because sometime shift are located quite far. But other than that, it is a really interesting experience. Plus from this experience I have learned how operate a till and communicate better with customer.

Long shifts but we'll paid!

The management are good and friendly but work can be unreliable as with any agency job. It normally involves working away from home for long periods or it can be many shifts in different locations all over the UK

Pros

Good money

Cons

Long hours, unreliable work pattern

You can get weekend job if you want, and you can work in pubs, company restaurants, good weekend hourly rate. I learned to cook a lot of food, good presentation and garnishing an expectation.
