A typical day: Managing quality control of fresh produce, completing waste forms for legal record
Stock replenishment, inventory counting, warehouse duties, heavy lifting
Date orientation, date checking and removal of unsatisfactory products
General customer service, dealing with enquiries, refunding and exchanging products for customers
Till service and cash handling
Preparation of bakery trays, over-seeing the cooking of fresh bread in the ovens, removing and presenting on display on the shop floor
Placing stock orders
Handling large amounts of money in the safe, being responsible for opening and closure of the store and being in charge of a team of staff.
Mostly a good team of people to work with, recently employed are somewhat unreliable however. Good holiday allowance and good pay, with a rise every year with the company and every promotion.
Hardest part of the job is the long hours that change weekly, could do up to 50 hours a week sometimes. Management are good and down to earth and easy to talk to about work related issues.
