Pros: close to a bank, cheap stores around for use at lunch, entertaining colleagues... this list could go on, but let's keep it short.
Cons: lack of pay, after all this was a voluntary position.
Whilst working here I met a handful of good colleagues, as well as many more happy customers. All colleagues were happy to help if I had some form of problem, as I was happy to help them with whatever they asked of me, even buying lunch or making a brew.
The work wasn't so hard and there was a level of enjoyment to its practice. I learnt to use charity – more... shop machinery, such as a PC, Steamer and Tills, I learnt about stock rotation and used such skills on their weekly rota. The toughest part of the job was cleaning some of the donated products that came in, some of them came through the door in a disgraceful state... I changed that and made the best and most of whatever product we received through cleansing. The most enjoyably/easiest part of the job was using the PC to print off Gift-Aid labels, print prices and research prices to give our customers the best deal possible. – less
