admin to one of the recruiters (Current Employee) – Grimsby, Lincolnshire – 5 January 2018
My days varied slightly. Speaking to different customers and booking in jobs. I enjoy doing invoicing, assisting the PA with statements and cheques. Doing the wages, putting the engineers time on system and allocating the time to whatever jobs they do. Answering the telephone and putting calls through to the relevant member of staff/directors. Learnt to be patient and productive. I'm a major key holder opening up and locking up, setting the alarms. Hardest part - keeping on top of certification for various jobs from the engineers.
Friendly, flexible and fairly relaxed atmosphere in the office.
hours did seem to be very flexible but reliable I always managed the full 40 hours and the work was always there, the team I worked with was very easy going and the factory itself made the working day very easy to be there
line worker (Former Employee) – Grimsby – 16 April 2017
i would come into the factory put on ppe then enter the factory floor clock in then stand and wait for me to be placed onto one of the lines and pack what ever it is on the line. I learned how to speak to different people and meet different people the management wasn't the best.
Busy environment that requires attention to detail and hard work.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Bradford, West Yorkshire – 9 January 2017
Working for stafforce at the next warehouse was a demanding and challenging job where i worked hard in order to achieve set goals. Working hours were weekend only and they started at 8:00am. As you arrived you stored away your belongings in a private locker and were admitted to a secure working area. We worked 10 hour shifts which required standing and had three 10 minute breaks and a half hour lunch. Our purpose was to open returns from next, scanning them and logging them onto a system. We inspected the goods and the reasons for their return. I learnt to organise myself and delegate time for specific targets and work to a high standard of detail. I developed social skills by supporting and being supported by my co workers. The hardest part of the job was the physical demand of standing throughout the shift in a cold environment. The most enjoyable part of the shift was working with the variety of different products and scanning them.
Production Operative (Former Employee) – Fraserburgh – 15 December 2015
my typical day at work would be putting fish on a conveyor belt to go to the final packing area, i learned how arrange fish for the line and to work with others, my co-workers were fun and very friendly. The hardest part of the job probably would've been having to stand all day in the cold and the most enjoyable part of the job was getting paid at the end of the week and having a laugh with my co-workers.

Order picker, Warehouse assistant (Current Employee) – Huddersfield, ENG – 28 October 2014
I found the poundstretcher warehouse just wasn't for me, as being a very charismatic and energetic person. I found my energy was being wasted, The hours left no time for me to be productive and i fell far behind on my music.
Driving different vehicles in some tight spots with adults and small children walking in between moving vehicles can be challenging and rewarding when achieved by putting a big vehicle in such a tight spot. Working with good, fun people is great. We can rely on each other like an extended family.
