    I have been working at Farmfoods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No other management present in store when you’re there, can lounge and do what you want to a degree

    Cons

    Everything else? Extremely heavy workload, two people in the shop per day, huge deliveries, you’re expected to get everything done within a day whether it be a 7 hour day or a 14 hour day it’s the same workload for you. Area managers are present often, never have anything good to say always negative
