Applied for that position, but actually I felt like a slave. Two year I heard only promises for pay rise and only lies. Estate and facilities management have not idea of properly maintenance. I was like multi trader with occupation maintenance assistant worked for 8 P/H. Don't recommend anyone to work for it. mmaintenance
as a volunteer role there's no wages but with great people and a friendly atmosphere it's always a fun place to be, the customers are friendly and like a chat, there's always something to do be it sorting donations or ironing to serving customers, it's a great place to build your retail and customer service experience or to give you something meaningful to fill your time and help a good charity, you'll make friend, have fun and learn lots working with St Helena in their /charity shops
Always a fun place and great people to work with
Lovely place to work. Nurses are very hard working and very committed. Kitchen staff can be great if you fit in. Very enjoyable job, people are really grateful for the services provided by all the staff. Working day very busy, but goes quickly. Kitchen needs updating but workable. Everybody helps each other, team work very important. For me the most important part of the job is serving the patient they re all so grateful .
Face must fit.
I have enjoyed working with all types of people and have gained a lot of valuable experience. The training has helped me grow as an assistant nurse and given me a good understanding of working with people from all different backgrounds.
good training good pension good team
unsociable hours high milage on my car
A typical day at work is a busy day, running around stock taking and seeing to the wonderful customers. I learnt to use the tills and manage the stock, sort through what's good to put on shelves and what's not good. The management is lovely and friendly, keeps you on your feet and always finds new stuff for you to do,treats the customer well and puts them first.. The co-workers are easy to get on with and friendly, always help the customers find what they are looking for.
meet new friendly people.
I have learned a great deal since starting. This includes undertaking a whole range of duties such as keeping the shelves clean and tidy and full of books, that have also been sorted to see if they are in good quality. In addition, I serve customers both on the book till and on the coffee till, in the latter case also helping to serve refreshments. I also go to the bank on occasions to pay in the earnings from previous days. I very much enjoy the managers I work with, who are generally very approachable, as well as the wonderful co-workers. The hardest part is sometimes the amount of customers to be served, which can be busy. Especially when only a few volunteers are working at a time. But I enjoy in particular the feeling of helping to support a widely known and supported hospice charity, by providing necessary funds to keep the charity going for as long as possible.
Excellent introduction into working face-to-face with customers in a fast pace envrionment.
The slightly differing styles between the managers.
I enjoyed the work greatly because I could work in a team or alone. I believe working here has improved my social skills because I can talk to most people of all ages. The most enjoyable part was talking to coworkers and customer. The hardest part of the job was when customers come in and spoke very little english.I learnt so much from working here because it was my first job and i learnt how to work the till, how to decide if a donated item is worth putting on shop floor or to bin it.
talkative staff and friendly managers
can be very difficult customers
