Good place to work
Excellent employer, friendly staff and loyal customer base.
There is a lot to take in but with experience it becomes second nature and the days are always quick.

Exellent
Great local store, opening times and stocks enough products for the size of the shop. Also comes with a post office,
Sells cheap booze and other stuff. I do subsequently find some items slightly overpriced for what they are, and they can be sourced cheaper at an competitors. Hence we try to mach it. Overall great experience working with them.

generally okay
On a weekday I had to be at the shop for 7 am.
On the weekend I started at 8 am.

Each morning I had the responsibility of writing my route for the houses that

had ordered a variety of newspapers and magazines. I had to make sure that

the papers I delivered were not creased by taking extra care with them.

In the first 2 weeks of working, I had to learn I've different routes before I got

my own which at first I struggled with but after a while, I eventually started to

get used to them.

On rare occasions where I bumped into the tenants of the homes, I was

delivering to they always reported back to my boss about how polite and

friendly I was.

After six months I decided that I needed to put my GCSE's first so I gave up

my job.

Working for the first time outside home country
Londis being a provision store, a regular day would start at 8am.
Opening up and getting it ready for the customers to get their daily necessities.

Leaning how to assist customers as well as making sure that everything is in place, multitasking. Placing orders, getting great deals and bargains.

Enjoyable part is interacting with customers and helping them and making sure they are happy with the service provided to them.

Great Place to Work, Fantastic Ethical And Fun Atmosphere
It has been a great experience working in and around Londis (franchised). I have learnt many of my management practices from Londis and the people working around me have been very helpful and supportive.

Over the years working at Londis I have met many friendly people who have shared their experiences and knowledge with me in hand which has given me a great overview of the retail and wholesale sector. I started right at the bottom having little to know knowledge about the sector and now I must say, I have immense knowledge about the industry and how it plays a major role in our economy today.


I have adapted to work in many environments and working at Londis has so far been the best. The people, the work, the location has all been great and I am very pleased to be a part of such an establishment.


As an individual, Londis has helped in self development and understanding my true potential and capabilities. The atmosphere always changes from day to day from being a fast paced to a slower environment, no days are alike. With Londis you are constantly using and adapting different working methods to complete the objectives and tasks.


Londis has taught me about brands and power and how they portray their products and services to the customer and or consumer.


Overall my experience knowledge and attributes at Londis (franchised) have enhanced and moved from strength to strength. These are skills and qualities that are transferable and will stay with me always. I always believe that if you look for excellence success will be sure to chase you!
Pros
Location, People, the job
Cons
Occasionally very Long hours.

fun place to work
working in retail all this years i have learned many things about customer service. i learned customer service is the core of retail world.I also learned how to make customer happy in all the possible way to make them come back to the store again. There are many situation when customer are not happy with the service we provide and we try to make them happy with fixing their problems.there are many busy time when we cannot manage the pressure of work load and customer care.I have learned to be polite and deal with such situation calmly all this year.
retail is busy career. be it weekdays or weekends you need to be always ready to give your time for work.the most interesting part of the retail job is u get chance to meet with the varieties of people which i enjoy very much
Pros
you get to interact with varieties of people
Cons
retail is busy.
