Generally Good
You will be fully trained to be able to complete your daily role. The hardest part of the job is the pace. It is very fast paced and can be stressful. This can cause on occasion some negativity
Pros
Good Benefits package

Great pay met with stressful change
The job's pay was a pleasant part of working at shop direct,
however there were many structural changes which occurred during my time working there. So within a 6 month period my role changed 3 times, which for me was not great(from calculations - excel and other internal software to telephone queries and then finally to triage). I like getting good at something and feeling confident within my role. I did not feel this within my time working for shop direct. Trying to reach a target whilst also trying to catch up with new processes and roles left me feeling quite confused. However, there seemed to be some method to the madness and I believe future employees will feel more at ease within the situation as it really seemed as though they were trying to adapt things to allow a more stream line process. Personally the hours of work were not exactly perfect for myself.

great working environment
I was only a volunteer there, to help with fundraising, i didn't work there but it seemed like it was a great working environment.
Whilst being there that one day I learnt that in order to work in such a place you have to have good teamwork skills. You also have to have good communication skills and just a positive attitude overall. Everyone just got on well with each other and they were all friendly.
