Night Replenishment (Former Employee), Braintree, ENGJuly 18, 2014
Pros: discounted shopping
Cons: weekend work
Checked freezers for whatever was running low & refilled accordingly, from storeroom. Hardest part of job was keeping hands warm, ha ha. Management were about if required. My fellow workers all had their own areas to fill but were very friendly. The best part of job was seeing the freezers full.

A harder job than most people give you credit for
Customer Assistant (Current Employee), SouthamptonJuly 15, 2014
Pros: some of the people you will work with are fantastic, i've made many friends through my workplace
Cons: shifts are changing at short notice, promotion system doesnt work anything like how they describe it.
A typical day at work involved alot of manual labour, heavy lifting and fast paced work ( no i dont work on a checkout ) but hard work brings rewards.
You learn to deal with people, which is more challenging than anyone who hasnt worked in this environment will give credit for.
Some of the management are fantastic and are the reason this company do – more... so well.
There isnt many easy elements to the job, theres alot to learn and alot of physical work.
The team i work in work well and my manager is quick to praise good work. – less

Team Leader (Former Employee), Leighton BuzzardJuly 12, 2014
Pros: good rate of pay, left to get on with your job, discount and holidays
Cons: not enough hours !
I would say there is never a typical day at work , as the days can throw up many challenging jobs throughout the day .
I have learned to take each day as it comes as no two days are the same .
I prepared the weekly rotas ( a month in advance ) for my Manager , and dealt with most of the daily and weekly paperwork .
I had a team of 14 , with three departments – more... , customer service desk , cash office and trollies , ( also petrol filling station , when team leader on holiday ) .
I loved meeting and greeting customers and thrive on dealing with challenges .
The hardest part of the day is not having enough hours !! – less
