No two days are ever the same
Mortgage Specialist (Current Employee) –  Luton, Bedfordshire12 July 2017
An enjoyable if sometime frustrating place to work - always a wide range of customers from all walks of life certainly gives variety! Sometimes frustrations occur due to organisation trying to focus on too many areas at once

An institution
Post Office Counter Clerk (Current Employee) –  Bewdley11 July 2017
As a rural Post Office worker I chose to open from 8am-5pm but was only paid 19 hours per week.
Learned to be independent - only source of contact/help was the helpline after the trainers have left.
Hardest part of the job was balancing each evening, week or month.
Most enjoyable part was serving the customers
Pros
Small income just about covered my rent
Cons
Quite lonely as a one counter service

Very unorganized
Paper Girl (Current Employee) –  191 Bramcote lane, Wollaton, Nottingham11 July 2017
They are a very unorganized company and aren't able to work together as a team. Their management is appalling as they are quite rude to their employees. However they have fairly good communication skills with customers.
Pros
May earn more money if you do extra rounds
Cons
Unorganized and rude staff

Personal Assistant to Chief Executive, Retail (Current Employee) –  London5 July 2017
Good company to work for with a family friendly awareness. Working to very tight budgets, so not much room for fun things! Constant change within teams. Maybe too many managers!

Excellent working environment
Postal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Leeds30 June 2017
Great place to work with comprehensive safe systems of work guidelines,regular training updates and good channels of communication between departments and management.

Working in a skeleton three person night team meant we were expected to perform each of the three roles which ensured a varied working week and a level of trust as an error from any of us could result in a longer working night for us all.
This inter-dependance did result in a very close knit team and an atmosphere that could make a night quite entertaining.

A high level of accuracy was paramount and therefore it was crucial you developed a method of working that was both thorough and accurate.

Working five nights a week from Monday to Friday was the most difficult aspect of the job,weekends could,on a bad week,feel non existent.
Pros
Pay, leave allowance, training, job security and working environment.
Cons
Five days a week nights

My responsibilities include, leading and managing a staff team of eleven to drive sales performance whiles offering excellent customer service.
The branch offered a range of services in line with it's layout. It contained a main counter area, a bureau de change position, a financial services office and a self service area for customers to handle their transactions without staff assistance.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to understand and assist customers with their queries and problems.

Good Money but stressful
Customer Service Consultant (Former Employee) –  Kettering, Northamptonshire13 June 2017
it was a well paying job but you need to be able to work long days and switch off when your home otherwise it will all get too much. Not enough staff on so long queues of angry customers and managment still expect you to flog insurances when customers are angry or if they just want a single stamp.
Pros
3 Breaks, Great Money, Additonal Hours available
Cons
Long Queues, Not enough Staff, Pressure to sell, Poor Management

Good
Team Leader/Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London12 June 2017
Colleagues at work makes it easy to want to be at work, learnt a lot about life talking to colleagues of different life stories. The managers makes the work sometimes difficult by not been easy to work with. The only hardest part of the job was the driving and getting a parking space to carry out your cash deliveries. I certainly enjoy the reward of making customers happy after and see there reactions.
