I was here as a temp over the summer. The people were welcoming and friendly. The work was varied and interesting - although it was entry level. I left to get a permanent job with the security and benefits that provides.
Pros
fairly flexible working hours
Cons
nowhere to go at lunch time, nightmare to get to on public transport

Fast paced, fun, creative and constantly changing - no two days were the same. Working with pre - loved items and making sure to raise as much money and awareness for the Debra Charity.

too many staff in the workplace and not enough work within the workplace to actually do and the hours were too long especially with no work to do as there was too much staff in the workplace at the one time in my eyes it was very poor organisation.
