    I have been working at Coop part-time

    Pros

    Good company benefits such as discounts and christmas bonuses and money off of travel, good management spirit with regards to christmas and other holidays

    Cons

    Unorganised management. Staff not doing their jobs to the corect standards are not reprimanded, leaving the supervisors feeling powerless

    Pros

    Manage to work round other commitments and gain overtime when you need it

    Cons

    The pay isn't too good, plus you are worked to the bone. Working weekends also isn't much fun!'

    I worked at Coop part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked there during my studies and I can say that the balance work/studies is perfect. You have to work a least one day a week but it is possible to work more if you want. They are very flexible.
    The salary is also really good for a student job, and the people are nice

    Cons

    For a student job, it is ok, but as it is really repetitive, I couldn't work there full-time.
    Futhermore, as you work in a kind of fridge, it is freezing

    I have been working at Coop

    Pros

    Lovely full and part-time staff to work with. Sit at checkout 6 hours a day most days three days a week. Meet and get to know so many people! Lots of laughs. Hours not difficult. Lots of Fair Trade goods, and a high awareness of environmental issues.

    Cons

    Never a word of thanks or praise from the manager. Systems designed to treat staff as potential thieves, making us seek approval from over-worked supervisors for even minor things like little mark-downs. Disregard of H&S systems - no Risk Assessments in two years (nor fire drill!). Pay is very very poor compared to the top four.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Thank you" is not hard to say. And start paying us face-workers the same as the top four at Tesco, Sainsbury, Morrison and Asda.
