    Best thing

    Routine, shifts are the same every week. Working with the same team, unless you’re working overtime.
    Clean canteen space, generally secure premises.

    Worst thing

    Generally low pay, still have to apply for benefits to top up income. Unfortunately end up being WORSE OFF doing occasional overtime.
    Would like more if the pay was enough to live on with out needing to be still on benefits.

    Difficult to social distance from other colleagues and customers
