• 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
  • I assisted with basic stocking and serving customers at the CEX store for school work experience. I was only on the Tills briefly and mostly stocked shelves and sorted out games and DVDS into cases.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I did not learn many skills from my work experience, only some customer service skills and how to serve people through the till.


  • 3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
  • It was only very short, but it was a nice change from school at the time. I enjoyed getting a taste of the working environment.


  • 4. How valued do you feel by CeX?
  • I did not feel very valued as they mostly let me stock shelves, quite menial work with not much satisfaction.


  • 5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
  • It was relatively poorly structured, I just was told what to do each day.


  • 6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
  • I was given quite thorough instructions as to what to do, so it was good.


  • 6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
  • Not applicable as it was only for a week.


  • 7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
  • My work experience was unpaid.


  • 8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
  • Also not applicable, there were no outside opportunities


  • 9. Would you recommend CeX to a friend?
  • No

  • 9b. Why?
  • It was not very fulfilling and the fact it was unpaid was unfair.

  • 10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to CeX?
  • Be prepared to not undertake as many tasks as you'd like.
