"I have been working 40 hours a week on average since I started (at Longos). It has been a good learning experience. I really enjoyed everything — although sometimes it was overwhelming and challenging. The great thing is that they helped me design my career path and offered me two job opportunities.
I will continue to work for them supporting category management and the central kitchen. After this, I'll work in store to gain practical experience. That way, my professional growth will be assured."
– Emanuele Trovato
