Excellent company to work with. Been a volunteer for 1.5 years n they helped me so much. My confidence was at a low but my manager put me on the till n sat with me and trained me thru it. I'm now serving customers with a confidence I've not had for years. They are also training me up on the administrative side. All looks good on the cv
