Garden Centre Assistant, York - 25 June 2017
A typical day at work was different from week to week. I did a range of activities like taking care of the plants, serving customers on the till or cleaning up. I learned a lot through my e-learning program as well as through experience and being shown how to do things by my colleagues. The managers are great. They are very supportive and charismatic; they have a sense of humour. The workplace culture was one of the things that motivated me to go into work. The jobs are interesting and varied and the staff are great fun to work alongside. The hardest part of the job for me was the learning, as I personally had a steep learning curve. The most enjoyable part of the job is hard to pinpoint, as the staff made everything enjoyable.
