I have been working at Waitrose part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good pay, Great discounts and benefits, Bonus every year and very nice working environment. Meet a large range of people and helps with your people skills.

Cons

Dependent on the amount of staff there is in store at any one time, will determine how much enjoyable/stressless or stressful/unattractive work you will be doing. Friends orientated hierachy which can be tough to break into.

Advice to Management

Make sure everyone is doing there bit, maybe by having management observe more closely at each section. People being treated the same for doing something by mistake/wrong.

    Pros

    Discount is good, and would imagine promotion prospects are good if you have a modicum of intelligence. I only worked there part time so I don't know.

    Cons

    There is a high concentration of studets, which can be good, but it also means that you end up with a lot of people who aren't enthused about their work.
