    I worked at British Heart Foundation part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to learn and move up in the company. Working very closely with the managers of the shop. Really nice relationships with the volunteers. 25% discount.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great but that's common for charity work. Hours weren't great. kinda thrown in at the deep end and given a lot of responsibility quite early.

    Advice to Management

    pay your shop staff more.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at British Heart Foundation

    Pros

    Good fun, interesting, quirky volunteers, great discount and you get to see what goes out on the floor before customers meaning you can buy it first usually with discounts

    Cons

    odd customers, smelly + dirty clothes, stressed out upper management, no rota's or set timings for volunteers, difficult to get noticed if you want to progress.

    Advice to Management

    none, trying to fill the 20 word minimum though so none
