Brilliant place to do work experience
Voluntary Worker (Former Employee) – Chester Le Street – June 29, 2016
Shifts are usually 9-4 or 10-5 3 to 4 days a week if you are doing work experience there which is what I was doing there before I started volunteering.
Your duties will include rotating stock, working on the till, Helping out customers, Steaming clothing, Hanging and stapling on the labels for the manager or assistant manager to write a price onto it.
The management team is amazing with Audrey as the Manager and Christine as the assistant manager they couldn't make a better team if they tried.
The most frustrating part of the job was rotating the stock because the moment you thought you were done with it more came across to be rotated. So although that part can get slightly annoying it doesn't mean they aren't worth volunteering for.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working on the till being able to greet and help the customers making sure they leave with a smile on there face.
I learnt while working there Till skills, Team building skills, Communication skills as well as them helping with my confident tremendously.
The co-workers you have there are amazing this includes some of the managements family/friends and others who volunteer there. You might get some people you don't like but if this happens and you feel like you might have an issue do not feel ashamed to talk to the manager/assistant manager as they will always be there to support you.
