    I have been working at Heron Foods part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked for this company for 2 years and I have to say I love my job, it works perfectly with my life style, 3 days on and 4 days off, the teams are very close knit and I love the competition between the stores all fun to be the best, but all there when you need a helping hand. I have recently moved store to Southwick and have now been there for almost 6 months and I love it, I am working with a fantastic manager who is totally committed to his team and his store, and we have fab support from our area manager who i might add rolls his sleeves up and helps out on the shop floor, that can't be said for a lot of area managers I have worked with in the pasted. Hopefully I will finish my working career with this company and the fantastic people that also work there.

    Cons

    Christmas is always our busy time no holiday allowed
