Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire – 11 January 2018
Typical day depends on who is in charge. I've had two managers in my time and both have been completely selfish and incompetent. they lack even basic people skills. That being said I have improved as a person but that purely down to me gaining experience of working with the public. usually quite a tense culture with alot of division but again this is down to poor individual man management from the manager.
I worked as a temp member over the christmas period, no secure hours and if you took a day off work you would find your self with no hours the following weeks. Breaks are bad. However the staff and management were good and I had a good time due to this.
General working day is working on the till helping and serving customers. The pace is fast and was especially so over the festive period but the time goes quick as kept very busy. The management are great and my colleagues are great to work with as the whole team is friendly and help each other. Pity it is just a temporary position I have with this company and due to finish soon. It is such a great friendly place to work.
Great Management and colleagues. fast paced and fun place to work
I really enjoyed working in card factory it was a lovely environment always kept busy always somthing to do strict but fun always had brilliant feedback from customers on my working and it’s easy to pick things up full training and support was always avaliable no matter how long you had been there
Full training provided, days off avaliable, great staff, brilliant manager
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester – 30 December 2017
this is a fun workplace, especially at Christmas. Management is good and there is a strong sense of team spirit. this is a very active and manual job as displays constantly need changing and there is daily deliveries. .
A typical day at work was always really exciting and you'd see that no 2 days were the same. I learnt how to go on the tills. There was a total of 3 managers, one of them wasn't so nice and treated everyone terribly especially temporary people and just simply spoke to people like they were rubbish on the floor. Apart from her management were great!
Within the store my colleagues were happy to help me with any problems I had regarding tasks I was set. There was always a positive atmosphere within the workplace. At times it was fast paced which meant we had to work well within a team to make sure we served customers efficiently. Then when the workplace quieted down we would al use this time to fill the shelves with stock where needed.
