Customer Service Assisant (Current Employee), Southwick – May 25, 2013
I have learnt many things in my job ie ordering stock into the store, gap scanning, basic shop work. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people everyday and interacting with customers. It satisfies me when I can help the customers as much as I can and put a smile on their faces. I get on well with my co-workers because I'm a outgoing person.
Customer Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Kyle of Lochalsh – May 13, 2013
Pros: customers and fellow staff members
Cons: random shift patterns, management
The company as a whole must not be judged by this review, I feel it was just the store I worked in. A typical day at work would include a variety of tasks and would usually differ on a daily basis. I learned a lot through working there; how to multi-task effeciently, to work in a fast-paced and pressurised environment, how to work as part of a team – more... to achieve a common goal. Management was authoritarian and blind as to how the store operated, and would often delegate unnecessary tasks which staff members would later be chastised for. During my time working there, management had made numerous members of staff of varied ages cry. The hardest part of the job was definitely trying to work productively alongside the management. The most enjoyable part of the job were fellow members of staff, who were all lovely. Also pleasing customers and getting to know them through a daily serving businees was enjoyable. – less
Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee), Winterton – April 15, 2013
Pros: customers and colleagues
Cons: shift pattern
A day at The Co-operative Food is based entirely on the customers which is one of the aspects I enjoyed. I learned a lot of personal skills whilst at The Co-operative, these include becoming more confident talking to people, the ability to express any concerns about my job, great customer service and the ability to work quickly but efficiently. The – more... hardest part of the job is the lack in variance in my shifts. I often work only evenings and weekends which aren't the most ideal shifts for someone with a young family, but I was able to make them work without it infringing on my spare time. A variety of shifts would be ideal as I do prefer different situations in order to challenge myself. The Co-operative was a great stepping stone in my career life and I have learned a lot of valuable skills which I'll be able to apply to any other future career. – less

Customer Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Wales – November 6, 2012
Pros: lovely colleagues, 10% staff discount
Cons: long hours and not having a decent selection off sandwiches
A lot off us get on and have a laugh and work well with each other. We can rely on each other to help us and get the job done well. I've learned how to use Paypoint and checkouts. The manager is easy to talk too and deals with situations well. My Co workers are reliable and good to work with. The hardest part of the job is when customers get angry and – more... start shouting at you if you refuse to serve them. The best part is working with some lovely people and see some off the regular customers. – less

Customer Team Member (CTM) (Former Employee), Letchworth, Hertfordshire – October 13, 2012
Pros: 10% staff discount. working in a team, dealing with customers was always exciting.
Cons: only had a 20 minute break in an 8 hour shift. had to stand up all day.
Maintained all aspects of customer service in an approachable, efficient and coherent manner developed my adaptability, interpersonal and communication techniques while handling customer queries. It was essential to work in a fast-paced team environment, maintaining accuracy and productivity and handling pressure and adapting to arising difficult circumstances. – more... I got on very well with colleges and seniors appreciated my work ethic. My leadership skills were exercised as my manager put me in charge of training new members of staff on the various tasks required. Made redundant due to shop closure. The hardest part of the job was the physical attributes of the job such as standing up for 8 hour shifts with a 20 minute break which was slightly exhausting. The most rewarding part of the job was being able to work as a part of a team, enjoy working and making conversation with customers, thus developing my communication skills and I enjoyed working in a fast-paced environment as I like to be productive and showcase my hard working ethic and demeanor through everything I do. – less

It was never my desired career path and was only every going to be a temporary place of employment (despite the extended length of time I actually ended up staying there) but the time I was there was generally a good experience. The people I worked with were everything you could want from work colleagues and the management were very accommodating and – more... easy to get on with. – less
Customer Sales Assistant (Former Employee), Yelverton and Tavistock – August 19, 2012
Here I gained some very valuable customer service experience. I had to respond to customer requests, serve them on the till and re stock all the shelves and change promotions over. Management from the store you work in is respectable but from the headquarters is questionable. My problem here was trying to balance my school work with my work life, working – more... 6 days a week straight after school most of the times, also hours are very flexible. You get a different schedule each week. I did enjoy work relationships i had with some co workers. You can make soem great friends there, some whom I am stil lfriends with now. – less
