  • Best thing

    Work with some absolutely lively volunteers, know that the hard work makes a huge difference to people living in poverty

    Worst thing

    The pay is well below minimum wage when you factor in the inability to take breaks and the early starts and late finishes just to do the minimum. No holiday cover so regularly not able to take holidays at a suitable time as taking holiday would require the shop to close and closing the shop reflects badly on the manager. If you have children or caring responsibilities, this is not the job for you. No flexibility.
