      Retail

      25 Apr 2021 - Member Representative in Hayes, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Get to work as part of a smaller tight-knit team who are always willing to help. Receive awards and also financial rewards which you can spend on vouchers for retailers for performing well in the role. Speak to a diverse community and build relationships with members. Get access to a range of benefits e.g. discount rates at popular retailers.

      Cons

      Can be very stressful at times when there is not enough staff to cover. Repetitive nature of the job can make it quite mundane. Resources aren't always used efficiently and updates to the business can take a long time to implement.
