    Best thing

    My friends that I have made.

    Worst thing

    The Rota is never up till the last minute. every day is a different shift. Being told that you’re shifts are being cut by 10 hrs a week. And that you are not fit enough to be a key holder. They are the only ones who are getting full time hours.
