Shop Assistant (Former Employee), LeicesterAugust 11, 2014
Pros: benefits such as discounts
Cons: can be a pain when certain things don't turn out how you want it to be.
A simple day of working, typically working with a wide range of other staff and creating opportunities together to create sales. It may be difficult trying to solve somebody complaining about a specific pricing or product but we get a long with it just fine. It is great fun working in such a place where a huge range of people with different ethnic backgrounds – more... can appear and helping them out without any issues, managing other areas when one is absent can be quite challenging but it gives me me knowledge in terms of what is required to do at that area giving me opportunities to learn more about it too. – less

Buffet runner (Former Employee), DebrecenJuly 8, 2014
The job began with opening the buffet at 2 am same time as the main facility. There were several screening schedules which meant that the number of the daily screenings varied from 4 a day up to even 6 a day. I was trusted in maintaining the buffet, keep it clean and in order to anticipate the customers in a well-mannered way. The last screening took – more... place at 9 pm in the evening after which I had to count the daily income and tidy the shop . I did not have any co-workers which was of great help as I had to manage the duties alone, by which I have built up a personality that is successful and precise on its own. This is where the hardest part lied also, as in times of popular movies the shop was rather busy, and I had no assistance in meeting the high demands and orders. Running a buffet and also working in the service industry can have their advantages also as it is possible to create a good relationship with the circle of regular customers. – less

Gamekeepers beater (Current Employee), NewburyJune 17, 2014
Pros: work with friends and family, good wage, good exercise.
Cons: heavy lifting in hot weather.
I worked here for 3 months carrying out various duties such as:
Collecting bricks and sand, mixing up cement, making tea and coffee and tidying up after work was finished. This work taught me some of the health and safety regulations required for working on a site and helped me build my customer service and communication skills.

I learned how to do – more... most of the different jobs listed above. The management was excellent so I never had any bad experiences and I always knew what I was supposed to be doing and how I was supposed to be doing it. Also, my co-workers were good as they were my family and a friend so we all got along and it made the job easier as I felt comfortable around them.

The hardest part of this job was probably the heavy lifting especially if it was a warm day. The most enjoyable part of this job was the satisfaction on completing something for customers and the whole experience I gained from working here. – less
