I was responsible for numerous duties at Cancer Research whether being in the back of the shop or on the shop floor. When I was helping out in the back of the shop, it was, my responsibility to sort through these as quickly as possible, but at the same time checking the quality of the items. My Duties on the shop floor involved interacting with the customers and dealing with any requests that they have. Sometimes customers would ask me for help whether it was to check the stock for the item they require or carrying large items to their cars.
