1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I work 39 hours a week, typical day I will start at 9am finishing at 6:30pm, throughout the day I'm mainly on a till but towards the end of my training I have been given supervisor privileges so I know how to do refunds, exchanges, voids...etc
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
During the time at savers I've learnt so much more than I ever have before, this has been more beneficial than school ever has, I understand the retail environment, good customers service and defiantly grown in confidence
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy it, at the beginning I was only earning £3.30 to start off with, it hardly seemed worth it but I stuck at the 39 hours a week and in October last year my pay went up and I get a qualification so it is more than worth it
4. How valued do you feel by Savers?
I feel like I'm a key part, as I do the same hours as the management there, so I've spent a lot of time with them, and devolved a very strong work relationship with the team, they trust me with tasks they set me,
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I had an assessor to start off with but she ended up going on meternity leave, so I was without am assessor for a couple months but luckily the found a new one and I'm catching up with my folder now
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
At the beginning she was visiting me at savers eve month until she had to go on maternity leave and I was Sioux one for a couple months but my old assessor and my new assessor both support really well.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I have a great relationship with my manager and assistant manager so I can go and talk to them about any problems or concerns I have, and they do there best to help me in whatever situation I'm in
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
At the beginning I was only earning £3.30/hour and it hardly seemed worth it but in October 2016 when the company did a pay review I got put up to £5.00 with was a massive help so I'm glad I stuck at it
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I haven't been looking, I've been at savers for the last year so when I get my qualification if there is any optportunities I will be looking into t, but hopefully a position opens up within savers and I can work my way up
