I work at Home Bargains, there’s a job we all dread doing and something all customers say as well | The Sun

MANY of us Brits love a trip to Home Bargains for a cheap haul, but one employee has revealed what it’s really like working for the high-street chain. 

Katie Jadeshaw, a Home Bargains employee, took to TikTok to share the highs and lows of working for the popular retailer.

The young woman uploaded her video with the caption ‘Home Bargains gang’.

She asked: “Have you ever worked at Home Bargains?”.

Katie then revealed the typical things that Home Bargains staff will know all too well about, including the job they all dread doing and the thing that customers always say. 

The first thing Katie mentioned is a common statement made by many shoppers and if you’ve ever shopped in Home Bargains before, it’s highly likely that you will have said this at some point.

The statement Katie always hears is: “I only came in for one thing hahaha”. 

Another thing that happens a lot when working at Home Bargains, is employees needing to ask their supervisors to void items from their tills, as Katie revealed she always asks: “Can I get a void”.

One good thing that Katie enjoys about working for Home Bargains is using the tannoy microphone, which she described as a “bad boy”. 

But one thing that Katie dislikes is a “fill shift”, as she confirmed: “The fear of being put on a fill shift”.
