Name and Shame Report

Poundland, May 2011

Only person doing more hours than I did was the manager. I wasn't allowed to work on the tills, only to stock shelves. The reason they gave me that I wasn't allowed to work tills is that they weren't insured for it, the jobcentre later told me that it wasn't true. I was told I had to do this work experience, even though I wanted experience in admin not retail. I'm not allowed to take any other work experience now in what I want to do. Working 30 hours a week for about £50 was soul destroying.
