Online assistant
Easy job to picking customer orders, they do put iph up each month but targets are achievable. Early hours but pays well and pay day discounts each month. Management are reasonably relaxed as long as you’re working.

if you want a dead end job this is it. no progression, rubbish management meaning you are either over staffed or under ( always under staffed) overworked underpaid
Customer Service Assistant in London
on 23 May 2022
it is a decent company to work for if your sole purpose is to make money. moving up is barely possible unless the managers have a liking to you. management take a long time getting round to answering your questions so you spend a lot of time following up on do meet some good people though whilst working there.
