Andrew Large, Sales Assistant I've become more confident in myself

Being able to multitask matters here. You have to be prepared to help with just about anything – whatever the customer needs. That’s fine by me. It makes the work more interesting and the teams closer.

Customers should enjoy their time in the store. That’s what it’s all about. We want them to feel that they’ve left with exactly what they wanted. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that they’ve been given friendly, helpful service.

There’s a family feel to Dunelm. You feel looked after and treated fairly. You’re respected for what you can do, not judged by how old or young you are.

Things move fast. Our range is huge and it changes constantly. So it’s sometimes a challenge to keep track of what’s what. That’s where enthusiasm and energy really help.

My prospects are looking good. I’ve become more confident in myself and I’ve learned skills in retailing that I know can take me further.
