I worked at Waitrose full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great benefits including holiday cottages, discount card, pay good, bonus good and fair

Cons

Management level is a lot of hours, and retail is 24/7

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have to go back to the Waitrose ideals of offering Partners a work life balance and not turning into Tescp

    I worked at Waitrose part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A great annual bonus, which should steadily increase each year. Discount of 12% and 25% at John Lewis
    If you're looking for more work, Overtime is usually available but you just have to be quick.

    Cons

    -Annoying customers (Can be necessarily posh)
    - Repetitive..

    Never seems to be enough staff so constantly running around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers more, if they say there isnt enough staff, hire 1 more for next shift.
