  • Best thing

    I absolutely love working there. Not only are the managers, supervisors and other staff the most amazing people I’ve met, but the job is also quite fun when it’s not super busy. I’m so happy I started working there, each day I enjoy going to work. It’s super easy to ask for more hours and as long as you give 4 weeks notice on days you want off, you can take them off. If you haven’t got that much time notice, people are happy to swap with you and as long as your shift is covered, managers do not mind helping changing the rota. If there is an issue at work the staff will all help, allowing you to leave work early if needed or nip out to grab something. The overall atmosphere is extremely laid back, as long as the work is done or being done no one really cares.

    Worst thing

    The pay isn’t too good (but to be fair it is a nice job so it’s not that deep), at christmas the hours can be long but if you need to leave before late managers do not mind (but again, it’s fun to work there and you get your hour break). Customers can be aggressive (and smelly) but your staff will always help out.
