      Pros

      There are no pros working here

      Cons

      Working hours, being called out if refrigerator issues in the middle of the night even if you're opening the next day. Pay rate isn't great, or worth the extra work involved.

      Pros

      Fun team, got me through whilst still at school. Wouldn't personalllt pursue this as a career. Good if you just want something part-time.

      Cons

      No room for progression. Roles are standardised. What you'd expect in a basic supermarket role. Depends at you want out of it.
