Opinions?? Even if the hourly pay was good (£9.50) an hour? What are your biggest no-nos with a job?

I would never be given a job that required a lot of heavy lifting, having almost zero upper body strength

Surely you would know the job involved a lot of lifting before you accepted it?

Yes, my body is not made for strenuous physical labour.

Not at all. My original job doesnt so much involve it but cause other people have left my department their jobs have been shifted onto me

Well my previous warehouse jobs involved a lot of heavy lifting like 15kg to 25kg boxes it was solid but I got a good six pack and that made me feel good plus it was kinda straight forward I just got the job done enit

Not when you're a girl who gets her period once a month and is still expected to LIFT heavy boxes containing frozen food.

Fair enough. In that case, if I felt I was not able to do the job safely, I would quit.

I think retail heavily depends on the store

Everyone in my dept complains about their back pain. 2 of my male colleagues have had to see doctors/have scans because their backs are on the verge of severely damaging. Even my lower back/knees get the most excruciating pain during my shifts. I'm also a girl so I'm pretty sure I shouldnt be carrying boxes that are super big and contain x120 frozen doughnuts etc....

Keep your eye out for other jobs, while you're still working, this is no good for you but neither is being unemployed.

Did it for years, I could go back to it. I enjoy that sort of stuff. But I wouldn't want to be doing it in ten years time
