I have been working at British Heart Foundation part-time
Staff seem nice enough, however, one woman was very rude to the other new volunteer who had just started today and the other volunteers/paid staff seemed to not like her too much either.
I was given a booklet with the health and safety information then left alone in the staff break room for half an hour.
I was basically following another volunteer around for 3 hours until they went home, I was not given any tasks and was barely taught anything. I simply had to wander around for 4 hours doing absolutely nothing at all.
Advice to Management
Pay more attention to your new volunteers and have a set plan in place for when they come for their induction. I was literally walking in circles around the store for 4 hours, occasionally popping into the break room to sit for 10 minutes.
