A very good choice for my school work experience as it gave me an idea of what a good and productive workplace is like. A very fun but respectable working environment.

Fun place to work, great collegues
Typical days work would be to go through 100+ emails, then key onto SAP invoices for payment, or alternatively do a Statement for one of you 50+ companies you are responsible for to Audit standard.
I learned team work is important, but a lot of this type of work is time management, so I can work just as easily as an individual.
The culture of the work place was a friendly environment, we could take our dogs to work with us. This releases a lot of stress in a stressful job. Pets at home make it a fun place to work, by involving everyone form every department in fun activities throughout the year.
The hardest part of my job I would say was volume, but I've always been used to working on deadlines.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with, we were like family not work colleagues, and I was extremely sad to leave when I emigrated to Finland to be with my family
ProsFree Parking, 20% discount card for the stores
ConsCould be long hours, large volume of work

Good pay bad boss
Great place great staff really fun but management could be better couple think there is only one good manager left in the store some stuff could he better but you must be able to take the abuse from customers and stand up for yourself or you won't get anywhere apart from that go for it great experience

You learn so much when you’re there and it’s one of those you get out what you put in jobs- I went from knowing nothing to small animal expert and dog nutritionist in 3 years - I had the opportunity to go for management but I didn’t want it! For retail it doesn’t get better- there are politics and management and staff problems but you get the at everywhere - ultimately I enjoyed it
