I had an activity day which began with an ice breaker which involved everyone in the group picking cards and whoever's matched you had to get to know them in about 10mins find out an interesting fact about them and something you had in common. The next was a group discussion/presentation you had to prepare then present to everyone else. Topic was how to make a perfect cup of tea. There were 5 people watching taking notes. If you were successful in these tasks you got to go forward to next stage answering questions on a sheet of paper to do with your skills and a given scenario on how you would deal with situation then interview conducted by two lovely managers. It was such a lovely, relaxing experience considering I'm normally a bag of nerves. The setting at the centre was such a welcoming atmosphere with children running around playing, parents chatting, it felt really homely and relaxing.
Rather slow paced, with the occasional shopper. Most of the time, I was cleaning the floors in order to make the establishment presentable.
Many of the shipments we get can vary in size and weight. However, the place makes sure that you have help when lifting heavy objects or manovering anything in particular.
Not good as things were changed without proper consultation. They can't even stand by there own motors. May I remind them No decision about me without me!
I like working here and the people I work with. My experience at Sense has helped me be more confident around new people and helped me get past my anxiety problems. Its a great place to talk to people from all over who come to our town on holiday or just visiting, or just to catch up with colleagues who drop by on a day off who you might not see often.
I felt motivated to come and volunteer at Sense, knowing I was doing it for a good cause (it being a charity).
