Worked in the same group - Sales Associate, Holland & Barrett
Jan 2024 - Mar 2024

I enjoyed my time working with Faizaan. It helped that we started working together around the same time, and his willingness to learn and help on matters I did not understand has allowed me to become a better colleague. In addition, I'd say he was quite flexible in terms of his timetables, he even covered my shifts when I could not come in to work, for which I am very appreciated.
