      Pros

      Brilliantly led, an ambitious and caring organisation

      Cons

      People give a lot of discretionary effort but perhaps this masks the resources really required

      Worst experience in my life

      Pros

      The volunteers even though they are bullied by the sore manager they still turn up each day and work for nothing

      Cons

      Bully culture, never been bullied in my life until I worked here. It’s disgusting the way the manager and paid staff speak to customers, staff and volunteers! It’s all very clicky too so when you reach out for help from the area managers they just set you up on your day off and create a fire hazard in your store so they can fire you over it. Lol So basically shut up or put up.

      Pros

      None at all. Not one.

      Cons

      Wow what can I say about my time here. Management is a mess, staff are disgraceful. Laziest bunch of people I’ve met. My time was short and not sweet at all. They need to take a good look at this shop, I don’t know how it’s open or how the staff have jobs.
