    I have been working at Cancer Research UK part-time

    Pros

    Great team within shop, supporting worthy charity.

    Cons

    Little or no support from area or regional management, when issues were raised they're dismissed without action or support of any kind. Expected to open shop for 8.5 hours plus open and close, which means paid for 7 hours but at work for minimum 9 hours with little or no chance of breaks as many volunteers are not comfortable to be left alone to manage shop. All for minimum wage.
