Productive and fun work place.
Pros: gaining experience in a retail, busy environment.
Cons: no pay, because it is a volunteers position, there is no wage, which can be a bit of a drag as we'd all prefer to earn something for our time.
The typical day of work can change from day to day. Mostly i would report to my manger for the tasks for the day, whether tha be culling stock, steaming clothes, sorting out the store room, cleaning the shop floor, dressing the mannequines and displays. I may als be taksed with going on to the till, working with co workers as there is always other volunteers working. Then of course just the general day to day customer service which makes the day go quicker as it gives you something to do.
It's a small, shop that can get quite busy on some days and other days be very quiet. But it is still an enjoyable place to be in. So far i have learnt how to operate the till. This is a skill i have gained through working with Oxfam that i had no previous experience in.
