The Backroom boys.
I was looking forward to starting my work experience. I was calm
and ready to get on with my learning. The staff at Matalan were really
good and taught me things that will help with my future. I helped in the
stockroom where I was able to lift lots of heavy items. I had learned
how to do this without injuring myself on the Health and Safety video.
At Matalan I learned that there will be jobs you like doing and jobs you
don't but you have to just get on with it because it is important
to work hard for the team. It was good to see the staffroom, the
stockroom and the deliveries coming in as you don't see this side
of the shop when you are just a cust omer.
TEAMWORK: Bending over backwards to help Going to the BBC studios
with the Matalan staff was a great experience because it was really
interesting seeing inside the studios and I enjoyed learning about all
of the different jobs.
