    Former Employee - Volunteer in Rotherham, England

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

    Pros

    Coworkers were genuinely friendly and helpful

    Cons

    Sometimes there is nothing to do, especially on the shop floor (clothing side) so you’re left standing/walking around for hours on end just shuffling things around. I felt like an unofficial security guard at time which wasn’t what I took the work experience placement for. I never learnt how to work the tills.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your volunteers with a little more respect and have some empathy and understanding. We don’t come to work to have snide/rude remarks made about/to us, especially those of us who have mental illnesses and are struggling as it is; it really knocks our confidence and makes us dread turning up the next day. If I was a paid employee, I’d have left and claimed constructive dismissal.
