I worked for card factory as a retail assistant for over a year and did enjoy my job. I had a good relationship with all my colleagues and manager. I feel as though if it wasn't for that, it wouldn't have been as nice working there. The job itself was standard retail work as you would expect. Can include a lot of heavy lifting with deliveries, some parts can be very repetitive so not much of a challenge if that's the type of work load you like to look for.
It does get extremely busy during peak holiday times like Christmas, valentines day etc which can be overwhelming for some however it kept me really productive and I didn't mind it at all.
Can be flexible with working hours and shift patterns
Not always guranteed extra hours throughout year, only peak times..
