Everyone is friendly and helpful. Very accommodating to new staff but very strict when it comes to rules for example staff doesn't use the door that is used by customers when they arrive at work they use the back door they use the front door when it's knock off time. Everyone is searched when they are knocking off.

Typically I would walk onto the floor and check my shelves , then start by cleaning the shelves , then get stock from the back to pack. The important thing was to remember to arrange the shelf on the expiration date basis
