  1. "Seasonal work for students"

    I worked at GFM Holdings (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work to do while studying, fits around other commitments and allows to gain something. Unskilled job so something anyone could do/start with. Database training provided on the first day and managers willing to help with questions or difficult handwriting

    Cons

    Very repetitive, monotonous work, especially if weekend shift (8 hours), staring at a computer screen the whole time. Not reliable either as it is seasonal work and if they don't have necessity, there wouldn't be work some weeks/days. Doesn't allow to develop many skills and no further career opportunities.

    I worked at GFM Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was good compared to other workplaces

    Cons

    Treated like salves with no respect of their staff.
    Limited access for toilet breaks etc, managers are very rude and do not respect their staff.

    Pros

    Quick turnaround from application to starting the job.
    There are often opportunities to work in different departments to develop a variety of skills.

    Cons

    Repetitive work.
    The job was not very rewarding.
    Little opportunity to make a real difference.
    Few permanent staff working there.

    Advice to Management

    They could give more of a warning as to when you are no longer needed. Could recognise employee's talents and assign them to more suitable tasks.
