I have been working at Heron Foods full-time
With the right Store Manager & Area Manager it can really pay off when you work hard & show willing. Very easy to get up the ladder with effort & determination. You need a keen eye for standards and availability to do well
Contracted hours are low compared to other retailers often 8-12hrs for a Sales Assistant
Advice to Management
Look at the contracted hours & increase these maybe to 18 or 15hrs for a Sales Assistant
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Heron Foods (Birmingham, England) in August 2014.
Store based interview comprising of basic management questions. What makes you a good leader? Why heron foods? Understanding of store manager role. And current salary and required salary. Had to conduct a swot analysis of store and feedback the findings, and how I would improve the store.
