Such a rewarding job!
I love my job at Marie Curie, it is so rewarding to care for patients in their own homes at the end of their life, the salary for a night shift is good. The management are so helpful and always at the end of the phone.

Productive & interesting
just as normal as any retail environment. The thing I most took away from my time was how important up to date information manuals really are.
The hardest part of my job was getting the manager to share duties and use me as an assistant rather than keep everything to themselves. this only left them so stressed they were difficult to work with.

Worthy place to work
I volunteered for Marie Curie as they are a very worthwhile cause looking after people at the end of their life. I found them to be professional and courteous and I would volunteer for them again.

Avoid working here.
Minimum wage, rushed around all day, most shop mangers attitude stinks and if you stick up for yourself they will ring managment and complain about it. Forced to do work which wasn't in my job discription and when i asked about it i was threatened with loosing my job. Very poor managment nobody ever answers the phone when you need more information they don't want to know.. Most shop workers sit in the back eating all day

Amazing
It was amazing to volunteer at this shop because you get to meet new people and make friends. You gain confidence with working in the environment and you get taught about the health and safety.

Volunteeer
Being a volunteer in Marie Curie has many benefits, you get to meet so.many different people in any given day .
Some days customers are in for a chat as ( possibly ) may not talk to anyone else that day .

I feel if I can bring a smile to 1 person when I'm on duty then it's been a worthwhile chat , I listen to what's been said & empathise accordingly.

Productive and relaxed work place.
I tag and hang clothes and steam clothes and hover .I pack stock to go to other stores .I find tagging clothes the most difficult .Steaming clothes is the most enjoyable part of the job . It is useful to ask for help when needed .The staff are helpful.

Productive and a fun place to work
I loved working for Marie Curie, of course there was stressful times specially being a Store Manager when you didn't know whether volunteers would come in or not.

There was a lot of paperwork to do, you had to calcuate the amount of items going on to te shop floor and coming off to make sure it was balanced.


If you needed stock you would need to call your Area Manager/the driver and ask for extra stock to be delivered.

Started off well and slowly declined
I loved my job with MARIE Curie at first but over the 10 years that I worked there the culture became quite vicious and changes made it difficult for nurses to actually work despite there being many individuals requiring care.
Pros
Towards the end ..... sadly nothing
Cons
A toxic culture

Best place to work
I loved working for Marie Curie. It's been such an amazing experience. I worked as admin and wouldn't have changed it for any other job (expect to be an astronaut but that would never happen!).
Everyone is so welcoming and helpful, I left because of maternity and I miss it everyday!

Definetly recommend to anyone who wants to work there. You won't regret it!
