It is a good cause, you are helping your local community, and recycling clothing.The management is terrible. There is pressure to meet your targets and when it come to staff there is never enough. There is always a problem when you want to take your holiday. The pay is not great.
Pros
Helping your local community
Cons
Management and pay

Regularly expected to work in shops 20 miles away. Culture of unpaid extra work. No support for staff from area manager. Minimum wage for assistant manager job very demoralising for the responsibility you have. Spring shifts on you the day before. Expected to lone work regularly if no volunteers can be found. Expected to serve on till, steam clothes in the back room and put clothes out in shop all at the same time, dangerous working practice and told off if you fall behind. Would not recommend.
Pros
Wonderful charity, really helps people in their time of need
Cons
No support, demoralising low pay, unsafe working practices

I’ve been working for Marie curie for nearly 5 years I love it management are fantastic very helpful, plenty of shifts available and the patients are lovely to be with, you learn a lot about end of life care and what it feels like to make a difference to your patients with the care you provide. You meet some lovely people, you are also a lone worker and have to think on your feet a lot when needed. People call us the Marie curie angels now I can see why. I can honestly say I love my job and I’m proud to be part of the Marie curie family and hopefully continue to work for them for many years to come.
Pros
Fantastic management, good team, and the patients making difference to them.
Cons
It might bother some being Lone worker but I like it.

I worked at Marie Curie for 2 years as a Manager. I enjoyed my time working for this company. The pay isn't the best over all the charities but working with nice staff/volunteers/managers makes up for that. I left due to redundancy.
Pros
Lovely staff
Cons
Pay

Marie Curie was a very calming and lovely place to work. My typical day at work was just to organise and place tags on the clothes. What i learnt is hard work, as the work itself is very tiring considering the fact that you're not paid. The hardest part would be that is that I had to stand up for couple of hours without sitting down and it gets extremely exhausting. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that you are making a difference and helping out.

I love working at Marie Curie, its a very relaxed atmosphere. I love the customers and my volunteers are brilliant too! I work 9.30 to 5.30, which is great, but after cashing up, tidying up etc I don't leave until 6.30 at times. I live local, so this this job is ideal. The only downfall about this job isprogressthat there is no opportunity to

I love my job at Marie Curie, it is so rewarding to care for patients in their own homes at the end of their life, the salary for a night shift is good. The management are so helpful and always at the end of the phone.

just as normal as any retail environment. The thing I most took away from my time was how important up to date information manuals really are. The hardest part of my job was getting the manager to share duties and use me as an assistant rather than keep everything to themselves. this only left them so stressed they were difficult to work with.

I volunteered for Marie Curie as they are a very worthwhile cause looking after people at the end of their life. I found them to be professional and courteous and I would volunteer for them again.
