Pros: weekend hours fitted around my education, still allowed for a social life, everyone was friendly and welcoming.
Cons: continued to be taxed on minimum wage and was annoying to continuously demand tax rebates, therefore the pay was inadequate to the duties i carried out and the hours which i worked.
I use to work Saturdays and Sundays within the company, but use to alter the days every other week. If I was working Saturdays then I would mainly be on tills, where I was trained to serve the customers which came into the store. I also had to carry out stock checks and organise it within the store. If I was working Sundays then I would clean the whole – more... store by myself and would also monitor the tills if any customers were waiting to be served. I also ensured that I offered assistant to any consumers who asked or looked like they were seeking it. The people I worked with were really welcoming and they explained everything to me. They were understanding that I was new to the organisation and may have been slow due to a lack of experience. However, I felt that the job did not provide me with as many hours as I had liked which was around 8-12 hours a month. I also continued to have my wages taxed which meant that the minimum wage I was already receiving was extremely low and I did not feel that the pay reflected the duties which I carried out at this organisation and therefore gave my letter of resignation. – less
