  • Best thing

    Compliments from customers. The team I work with.

    Worst thing

    Upper management treating staff badly and forcing jobs onto staff at store level. Unrealistic targets and workload

    Sales assistant, October 2020

    • £8.40 per hour
    • 25 or older
    • More than 3 years experience
    3.6/10
  • Best thing

    The people I work with and the charity as a whole

    Worst thing

    Ignorant customers

    Sales associate, August 2020

    • £9.00 per hour
    • 25 or older
    • 1–3 years experience
    6.6/10
  • Best thing

    Staff wellbeing. Manageable caseloads. Good holidays. Trauma informed workplace. Friendly team. Always leave on time, never take work home. Probably only left late on 3 occasions in 5 years due to emergencies. Flexible working patterns. Expenses paid. Cycle yo work scheme. Buy more leave scheme. Christmas off.

    Worst thing

    Lack of respect from other agencies who think all staff are unqualified where nearly all hold degree level qualifications relevant to the work. Top level managers are paid enormous amounts of money despite being a charity and expect expensive lunches when visiting, it is supposed to be a charity. On rare occasions you travel, lunch and travelling expenses are very low and so training away ends up costing you as an individual.
