    Co-op Food Employee, December 2021

  • Best thing

    Making amazing friendships with colleagues, good pay rate for both team leader and team member, easy progression.

    Worst thing

    Managers often don’t get full breaks or any break at all, if you’re a student it’s hard to juggle shifts and student life, some shop locations can get very busy.
