    I have been working at Wm Morrison Supermarkets full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff discount - chances to progress, a good working enviroment at the right times

    Cons

    Store managers that bully the senior team into bullying the department managers into performing a job they don't have the hours to do.
    Wont offer newly appointed competitive pay compared to existing even when they started out.
    Find a fault mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into store managers that use bully boy tactics, ones that will throw everyone under the bus to make sure that they are clean as a whistle.

    Pros

    A busy environment with good colleagues. There are plenty of chances to progress if you want to go from a shop assistant to a more senior position.

    Cons

    It can get very stressful at busy times of year, especially in December. The pay is only average for the sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would trust the staff more, as they are at the sharp end of the business.

    Pros

    when you have nothing, it's all you can get. The rest of the staff are the best crew I've ever woked with.

    Cons

    In a changing world, it's only predictable it would change too. They are too keen to give in to globalization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buy the place out yourselves.

    I have been working at Wm Morrison Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good time-off policies. Good staff discount and nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Training is a joke, they expect far to much from lower staff considering pay. I sometimes work in the car park and do it myself on the busiest times and still get called to a checkout which means i fall behind and can't do my job. Management don't pull there weight unless there is someone coming in to inspect. I feel the management have no organization skills as everything is last minute and always a panic and never there fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No leadership skills and absolutely no respect for staff and just assume things will be done without informing any staff about problems.

    I have been working at Wm Morrison Supermarkets

    Pros

    Good for customers, staff discount is good, long service award is useful.

    Cons

    Training isn't a priority, head office change focus too often causing confusion in stores, little thanks for doing a good job but quick to chastise if something goes wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is getting to be too much and constant change of focus and it's becoming very difficult to keep up, this causes confusion and frustration in stores and that leads to being less productive.

    Pros

    It's a good place in terms of the people that are in the different departments. The pay is good and you know you have actually done something to help when you have done the job.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can get a bit stressful with the workload and you can come against some tough customers. Some of the managers don't listen that well either sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to look at the people at the bottom more and put themselves in their position. They don't really realise what we have to do.

    I have been working at Wm Morrison Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extra-pay on Sundays is absolutely brilliant, especially because not many companies still do it. Flexibility is also quite nice as I am a full time student at the same time. It is not exactly hard to learn.

    Cons

    It can be very stressful, especially during busy periods. It is hard work and sometimes it also gets boring (Routine).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More staff is needed, especially for checkouts, as I work in a different department, which ends up jeopardised because I am called for check outs all the time.
