    I worked at Greggs part-time

    Pros

    decent salary, nice manager, 50% discount on products

    Cons

    they want you to work FAST, kind of difficult to learn all the products but you just need practice, most of the time only working with 1 person out front in my shop, they gave me a lot of the closing time shifts so a lot of cleaning. You only get the discount card to get discounts in other greggs shops after you've worked there for at least 3 months but it takes much longer than that.

    I worked at Greggs part-time

    Pros

    First part-time job so it taught me the importance of giving good customer service and basic skills. Staff were really friendly and once comfortable with my role, it was easy. Good pay.

    Cons

    I was put on sandwich making due to being the only other person that could do it, which I didn't like because I was never fast enough but I tried my best which my manager always acknowledged, but sometimes if it was busy, this became an issue which I expressed but they didn't listen.

    Early starts, and they always put me in for a weekend which wasn't on my contract and I would get into bother if I requested two Saturdays off in a row.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff concerns - sometimes was left out in the front myself during busy times and it was difficult to manage customers and making sure all the correct food was in the oven.
