Shift Leader in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
on 12 August 2022
busy and understaffed, so can be stressful. shift patterns are all over the place, so not good work/life balance. co workers are brilliant though and make work bearable
Employee in Bristol
on 6 August 2022
It was terrible. I hated every single minute of it. The staff are rude, disorganised and to be completely honest, totally inept at their job. I felt like a liability

Busy environment
Overall job for people that like to keep themselves busy. Different shift patterns ( early morning, middle or night shift, weekends). Busy. Different customers that could be challenging sometimes.
