Volunteer (Former Employee) – London – 13 January 2018
The people were lovely and very supportive. Overall the job was quite demeaning however the people you worked with lifted my spirits. I would not do this job again, but saying that I'm glad that when I did try a job like this it was with the British Red Cross as I'm sure that the experience would have been a lot worse elsewhere.
Cashier/Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Norwich – 13 January 2018
Learned many new skills while working here other staff were very supportive customers were mostly pleasant to help. it felt good to know i was helping a the workplace as it was doing great things to help the world
Very nice company to work for, very supportive of the individual and their needs. Very flexible when they can be and a nice atmosphere to work in. Staff are all great. the Job is good, and the pay is competitive.
I really enjoy working there. It has giving me the confidence to speak out and to communicate to strangers. I feel really confident about handling money and giving out the right change. There is nothing really hard about working there. The staff are so lovely and friendly and care about your health and well being. They give you 30-45 minute break ( depends on when you are working till)
Shop volunteer (Former Employee) – Cambridge – 29 November 2017
The manager have an hard and exhausting job. They work really hard. They need volunteers because there are a lot of work. You can have a timetable but always you work a bit more because it's never enough.
Interpreter (Former Employee) – Peterborough – 23 November 2017
I helped people who cannot speak English to book appointments, fill forms and support them in some interviews. This has helped me to contribute to my community. Also, has improved my communication skills a lot as I am dealing with different people every day
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 14 November 2017
The amount of money wasted by this part of the brc is astounding,too many management do the same jobs,equipment thrown away for no reason (skips full) . Poor staff morale always moaning about each other. Give the contract back to the council.
