Part time position during Saturdays and Sundays | Cwmbran | 21 Aug 2014
2014 May - Present, Home Bargains, Cwmbran
Part time position during Saturdays and Sundays, I spend equal time working on the tills and also replenishing stock. My hours are during the busiest time of the week and this position can be very pressurised especially when the tills are busy and there is a queue of customers. I have to remain calm and offer customers a friendly but professional service.

I poperate the tills serve customers
Help customers within the store
Working as a team with other staff
Help people with problems
typical day to day work:
4 hour shifts which includes putting stock out from a day to day delivery on shelves. working withing a team of 10 people to ensure the ship floor is tidy and is in correct order.
i learned on how a good team put together as management can help achieve specific targets that are set by higher management and also learnt to work more individually to gain self confidence and motivation to do better.
This job was secure and I always got the average hours that I wanted. The supervisors and management were really helpful and friendly. The shop floor assistants were friendly and fun to work alongside.
Management is absolutely awful aswell as the colleagues
I worked here for just under a year and every day was stressful, there is a culture if bullying between colleagues and aswell as the staff, I witnessed people talking behind the backs of others, Lead sales were awful for it, family stuck with each other and one colleague was the actual worst, she would stare at you like an angry troll! I saw the manager shout and swear at colleagues and also he would stand at the end of the isles watching fill shift put out stock trying to intimidate them for no reason at all! The place is very two faced and lacks any type of management skillset! It's the worst place I've ever worked. I wouldn't wish a job at home bargains norwich on my worst enemy. swearveodd!
Early morning start. First of all would make sure the store is ready to open, tills, check fridges and freezers, bread, and see to the delivery. later open store and do staff searches. Run the fill shift. At all times seeing to till calls and customer enquiries. Also doing price tickets for new stock and placing new stock on shelves. If we were short staffed I jump would in and help. When doing a full day, I would also oversee the afternoon rebuild team which was to tidy all aisles in the store. When the store closed the staff would do their shopping and when they had left I would till up and recheck the fridges and freezers to make sure for dates and damaged stock and to make sure they were tidy. In office I would see to the daily cashing up and paperwork. As leaving make sure no damaged items are left for the next shift the following morning. Finish rest of paperwork in the stockroom.
I found that a lot was taught me, but a lot I had to learn by picking it up myself. Information was never forthcoming.
Management were ok but, putting up with bad tempers and picking and changing of minds and using your ideas as their own. I found that they did not build confidence up in any staff member. Staff breaks were few and far between. They did not know when they were going to a break, sometimes they would go over six hours, this was down to the manager when they were to go.
Co- workers, till staff and floor staff majority were good to work with. I found that if I said please and
never enough staff on so puts pressure on cashiers constantly calling for help with queues. the job itself is ok quite enjoyed working on the tills but management spoilt the atmosphere.
Enjoyed interacting with the customers.
Busy fast paced business,efficient and flexible.
great products and good benefits
very physical with delivery cages etc but all in all a good place to work
Pros10% staff discount lots to buy
Conscan be long hours ans very physical on your feet all day
