    I have been working at British Heart Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great pay for relatively easy work (they pay £8.30 hour as a sales assistant regardless of your age) - You can opt into doing additional training and learning and you can shadow anyone in the company to learn about their job - The job can be quite fun and varied. There’s always something different every day to do. But it can also be very repetitive and boring - There is quite a good benefits package you get a... health/dental plan, 25% discount, A good amount of holidays allowance and plenty of overtime offered

    Cons

    - The job can be stressful due to the amount of stock that you can get. There is always a very high workload. There are not enough members of staff hired in the shops. It’s usually just a team of a couple of people and volunteers are heavily relied upon - Working conditions are rather dangerous and unsafe to be around - There is an atmosphere of bullying from the management team

    I worked at British Heart Foundation part-time

    Pros

    Varied roles within the job. Get to help with an amazing charity. Learn a variety of skills. Often kept busy, rarely a dull moment. Work with a variety of interesting volunteers. Great management team.

    Cons

    Occasionally a lack of respect from customers. Frequent problems with theft. Shop floor is often crammed. Personal hygiene of fellow volunteers is not the best.

    Advice to Management

    I got a job volunteering very easily, literally walked in and started working the next day. Maybe a more thorough process of application, as I could have had bad intentions and stole from tills, as an example.
