A horrible place to be
Long hours, tedious management, difficult customers and some annoying colleagues made the London Road, Brighton branch a difficult place to work in. This job made me feel very down as I was always working and had no time for myself or uni work.

Friendly Environment
It's a friendly environment. You meet new people everyday, and interact with new customers. The way the shop is run is fantastic. Hardest part of the job is when it's very quiet and no customers come in and then the day starts to drag. Most enjoyable part is that all the staff are friends and get on well with each other and customers.
Pros
Good work place
Cons
Can sometimes get bored when no customers come.

Apprenticeship
Typical day staff brief in morning figures ect. then general jobs such as open shutter, put money in the till, check for online sales, turn tv's on and clean the area. The rest of the day involved serving customers, helping them find items, putting stock on display and re organising different areas as wells as keeping stuff clean. At the end of the day close the shutters, turn the till off, clean the glass, hoover, turn tvs and lights off then get ready and go home.
i learned how to do sales and to interact with people and hold a conversation while remaining professional. I gained money handling experience and dealt with difficult customers.
Pros
friendly and always learning new things
Cons
moving stores and not enough money

Not what you expect
A typical day at cash converters is tough , the work is easy once you've got the hang of it but you have to deal with really aggressive customers , a lot of hassle , Its fast paced but I love that because the day goes quick. The management ain't great at all , you have to learn everything yourself they don't train new people so it makes things more hard on staff that been there already. Not going to say i have not had good times because i have had a lot off good times at cash converters, but everything started changing when the management changed and they start treating the staff like rubbish & not appreciating the good work their staff was accomplishing.
Pros
lunch breaks were 30min
Cons
40 hours a week

No comment
The job itself can be stimulating as well as stressful, depending on management and type of customers. Technical part of the job is suitable for someone interested in finances, administration and marketing. Customer service is also important since it is primarily customer oriented.
Pros
Short breaks every two hours
Cons
Long hours and bad management skills.

Enjoyed working with colleagues
Working here was a lot like working along side family.
The management changed while I worked here and I didn't enjoy it under the new system as much though.
