The people who worked there, as in the volunteers and the store manager were fabulous.
A typical day involves sorting through donations that have come in either by donations directly from local people who come instore, or also wae can get deliveries of donations from a central warehouse
For the first few months things were fabulous, we were working fabulously as a team, I then stepped up and ran the store whilst the store manager was away. At first things were ok, I was being supported by a wonderful deputy area manager I was told that i was doing an amazing job, who then left and this is when things went downhill.
The person who took over the deputy area manager role, had a mission to get rid of both myself and the store manager. This is because our faces didn't fit with theirs. i has a review and was told that I was not doing a good job and that I needed to improve or I would be let go.Obviously this contradicts what I was told when I in charge of the store, therefore they were doing what they could to get rid of me because my face didn't fit.
We were acccused of stealing money from the safe, they made me ans my manager both suspicious of each other, however there was another person who had acceess to the safe, and she was alone in the office at the time the money went missing.
I did quit, and the store was left without a manager or deputy manager and therefore the store was closed for weeks as they had no cover. They shot themslves in the foot there.
Do not work for any CRUK stores in the south East of England, especially in Berkshire. If your face doesn't fit you wont last long.
