It was my first try at a job, and my first volunteering role. It helped me realise that retail isn't for me which is good, but I didn't really enjoy my time there. My managers were quite unkind to me, making some nasty remarks about me without really telling me what they said, getting around it by saying it was a joke. I also felt quite uneasy behind the counter, especially when I seemed to have found an item of clothing was stolen. Overall my experience was quite unpleasant and unnerving.
A lot of responsibility in one role, not a very happy environment
