Had a great team to work with which made the job easier and enjoyable. Everyday was different, dealing with different customers and different situations every day was the most exciting part of the job as it was an opportunity to demonstrate my ability to adapt to any type of customer and all kinds of situations in that working environment.

Awful company

You only need to pick up a news bulletin to know how poorly this company treats their staff. It’s a hideous culture and no amount of money will make it palatable on a daily basis. Senior staff are the biggest culprits so there is literally no where to turn.
