Enjoyed my work experience as part of the Prince's Trust course
Stockroom Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighton, ENG – 18 August 2015
As it was only work experince as part of the course I was on, I didnt get paid for it, but I enjoyed myself regardless.
Most of the time I was spent helping in the stockroom, preparing stock to go out on the shop floor, which involved: placing price tags on CDs, DVDs and other merchandise, folding T-shirts to go out on theshop floor and placing security tags onto the stock. I also helped with anything that needed returning which was basically the opposite to preparing stock to go out.
When I did go out onto the shop floor, I done a variety of tasks, like organising stock, looking for a specific item to see if it was in stock or not, to even helping customers with enquiries.
I also got on well with the staff, as they were helpful when I didn't know where some products were
Despite hurting myself in the second week (due to my own clumsiness) which resulted in me ending up with concussion, I still managed to make the effort to come in on for the last two days of the work experience and even gave them a thank you card on the last day.
Still havent got my reference from the manager.
