Pros. Free hot drinks. Get three days off in a row. Money isn’t too bad. Free parking.
Cons. Boring work. A lot of walking. Short 15 min breaks. (Have to scan next item within 15 mins and walk to canteen and back) Kills my feet. No 8 hour shifts. Long hours and it drags sometimes. Feels like your always being watched. Get talked to if you spend too long being idle or late from breaks. Easy to get lost in.

I am currently an acting Caretaker working at an office operated by Derbyshire County Council. I started there as a temporary cleaner and have been given the task of being a part time caretaker in the late afternoon post.
I quite enjoy the routine of the work and I enjoy the company of work colleagues

Kitchen Assistant/Waitress (Current Employee) – dishes, UK – 23 August 2018
There is not alot of work available, You often get paid late as the company they send you to work for may delay payment due to the time they take to verify your hours. They sometimes send you to places your not qualified to work at. e.g they sent me to waiter at a busy restaurant and i'd never done waitressing in my life,which resulting in the management shouting at me due to my performance.
Flexible shifts and free lunches (for the most part)
This is a DTP role that requires your full attention, and focus it relates to loading new users to the required shared folders and accounts within the organisation. It is quite a solitary role and if you like being alone at work not interacting with others then it will be suitable for you.

it's an ok place to work when its busy period sometimes you want have time for lunch when i worked there you didn't get lunch break some days were better than others on my first day i was made very welcome into the office
Facing challenges, learning new things every day. Hardest part of the job are the deadlines and the pressure when busy. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the appreciations from the Management.

Photographer (Former Employee) – London – 24 July 2018
It was a lot of paperwork for a one day job but once it's in the system I can do some jobs for them easily after. Staff were friendly, very easy, simple, felt a little like self employed even tho it wasn't.
