1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

7/10

It was a 9 start where I worked and it ended quite late but it was enjoyable because you got to work with people you'd normally never work with. You got to do a lot of things such as testing out tills and unboxing. It was very fun and I would advice it to anyone who wants to do something like that. Trust me it isn't as boring as people say it

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

7/10

I learnt a variety of skills and techniques when I worked with adds for example when I worked on the tills I learned a bit of it when it comes to tills and also I learnt more about communication especially with vustomers. It was good to get some physical exercise with box unboxing and helping customers when they come to you asking you for advice or where a certain thing is. This was phenomenal especially I was shy when I was younger. It really helps

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

6/10

To a great extent indeed. I loved the programme everyone was lovely and very understanding and understandable if I did something wrong. It was very enjoyable and wasn't always the same repetitive thing every hour which was an highlight. It was really worth the apprenticeship. I especially loved the community and all my other colleagues who were supportive and my boss was a good guy

4. How valued do you feel by ASDA?

9/10

I felt valued like any another senior colleagues apart from I was giving specific requests and tasks and was giving more help and guidance than the rest when it came to unloading boxes or doing the bins etcs. I felt like it was college again but with being paid. It was a great weekend

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

8/10

The programme was very clear and had a clear regime which we all kept to. It gave me an idea of what needed to do and so I couldn't forget to. It was varied and seldomely boring or repetitive that helped. It got me closer to the community and the wider audience. I was given specific tasks to do each day

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

9/10

It was good it meant my cost I would have preferred money but normally you do but in glad I got paid. I managed to live my day with the salary and gave me a lot of ideas on what to spend my salary on and what is crucial in life

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

9/10

They are many possibilities in the sector. It allowed me to gain confidence to work at stores and go into the trade if I ever want to. I would suggest it if you have no idea what you want to do on your future. It helped me path a way into what I wanted to do
