Great company, high standards, enjoyable workplace.
Alcohol Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Chester-le-Street – 17 January 2018
Working on Grocery is fun and interactive, based on efficiency and detail. Management help when possible, and can be very supportive in personal and professional life. Strong belief in hitting targets and reaching goals, with appropriate rewards for each. Working in retail is usually rather fast paced; and working with customers, although enjoyable, is highly encouraged but can inhibit productivity if following company standards perfectly. Mixed performance among employees, due to the training scheme not totally covering all areas of the positions, very frequently working hard to ensure tasks are done to a high standard whilst making up for time lost due to frequent unforeseen circumstances.
Overall, the company is great to work for at entry level, with a good wage and some useful benefits. Rare chance of advancement, must be fully flexible due to rotas being very unorganised.
