    My answer:

    1. Sales assistant at a newsagents for about 6 months. I was 15 and hated it but was enough money for me to live on! Left because of illness. Then I didn't have a job for a couple of months.

    2. Customer consultant at Bodyshop. Was a temporary Christmas job and was okay although I had to do the boring jobs because they didn't till train me.

    3. Sales assistant at Boots. My favourite job by far! Was there nearly two years, on photo so I did all the processing and printing etc. Loved the people and am still in touch with many of them. Only left because I needed more hours.

    4. Concession manager for one of the brands in Topshop. Was there for eight months and it was alright, I liked some of the people there and the job itself was alright but the manager of my brand is an absolute tit. I left because I had a full time job but that fell through because they'd lied to me about it!

    5. Weekend supervisor at Primark. Have been there a week so far so I can't really weigh it up, seems alright so far though!

    Just the one so far, Customer Service Assistant at Sainsbury's, 10 months and counting, has its moments but generally it's simple-ish and straight-forward keep queues down and customers satisfied and the store presentable so I'd give it 6/10... 98% of the time.

    Cashier at Morrissons. that was ****. I really hated that one, didn't really click with the people I worked with and the customers were just something else! I was there for just under 3 months.
    Now I've got a summer job at Clarks, I much prefer this one, theres a variety of things that I get to do, the people I work with are really nice and although the customers can be annoying and/or rude thats not so bad when you're surrounded by the nice people that you work with!
