    I worked at Marks & Spencer

    Pros

    i have worked in the food and ladies wear department in marks and spencer with both good experiences.in the food section There is always work to be done so you are never bored or just walking around aimlessly. You are offered great 20% discount even if you are just temporary staff straight away

    Cons

    the tasks are repetitive, as you would expect in any retail store and you are expected to do a lot in a specific time frame.
