Enjoy the work at umberslade garden nurseries. Very relaxed atmosphere lovely setting I enjoyed working alongside the volunteers, is good to help them to learn new skills, plugs taking cuttings repotting plants. Giving advice to customers as and when needed about the plants they can choose for their garden. I sometimes helped in the kitchen cooking breakfast making lunches helped with the afternoon teas serving customers.

The level of understanding of understanding people with different needs, conditions or disabilities was very poor considering there are high functioning disability college. In many areas they were very discriminating and very non supportive. They need to learn to be open minded that people with disabilities come in many shapes and form also some people with disabilities can actually work
Pros
Learnt about different conditions
Cons

This was not a good place to work! Some staff are unfair and back-stabbing. There is an atmosphere of bullying. Staff have to follow rules like robots.
Pros
Free tea and coffee

The HR Department are really inclusive and helpful to all the staff who work for the college. They are ready to help with any issues that staff members have and are always willing to help staff understand the colleges policies. All the staff are friendly and it is a great place to work. You feel part of a family. I was temping for 6 months in the HR Department and did not want to leave. The Students get along well together and with the Teachers and Teaching Assistants plus the college is fully inclusive. Quite a few staff members were previously students at the college. The students run a cafe some days and make paninis, cakes samosas which are delicious. It is an extremely relaxed place to work even though everyone is working hard for the good of the college because it is a charity funded college. I have never enjoyed working somewhere so much and I would definitely give it 100% for job satisfaction.
Pros
Great lunch menu

Often Coworkers would be laid back and not taking their job as seriously as they could, but the community in Queen Alexandra College is hard to beat. The best part of the job was knowing what you taught your students was helping them towards a brighter future, as well as the characters you had in class.
Pros
The coworkers and students
Cons
lack of respect from higher up in command

Trabajar en un call center genera mucha tensión porque atiendes a muchísimas personas al día, de las cuales el 90% habla con disgusto. Así que necesitas ser empático y comunicarte de manera asertiva.
Pros
Aprendes a trabajas bajo presión
Cons
Demasiada tolerancia.
