    Pros

    On its day it can be a really good job full of friendly people that help one another and have fun whilst doing so. I've worked in a few locations, mainly the butchers and rotisserie.

    Cons

    The pay isn't fair enough. Due to resent cuts and lay off to staff there is now to much expected and not enough pay to help you motivate to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Be a Leader. Not a boss. Lead by example and learn about your staff rather than taking silly judgement calls. If you look after the staff the shop will run its self.

    Pros

    At first there was overtime but that was cut later.
    Meet some good colleagues.

    Cons

    Was good at first as the manager was Hard worker who recently got promoted to manager. But afterwards management become lazy... Take the p**s. Get calls on my day off to come to work and demand we come in. Some staff at my store took real liberties yet manager let them off countless times. Many staff got caught stealing yet a blind eye was taken. Hard workers are pushed to limits whilst lazy staff who call in sick are given a free pass. Very short staffed... Management can't even take full breaks disgraceful end up working through breaks. Not enough management staff to cover just in case one needs to go on sick or on holiday. That's area managers fault.

    Advice to Management

    I've left the place so any advice I give ain't gonna have any substance.

    Get it sorted.

    Good managers are leaving due to things mentioned.

    Pros

    I have found my colleagues and superiors to be amiable and approachable. We seem to have a good relationship with our customers, particularly the elderly.

    Our new CEO David Potts has brought about a change in attitude at head office and this does seem to have trickled down to the store. The number of colleagues on the floor and the amount of overtime available have increased, and this has made for a less hectic experience during our peak trading hours.

    Cons

    Whilst a modest hourly rate is to be expected with any entry-level retail job, Morrisons' rate compares unfavourably to those of its closest competitors, the other supermarkets in the 'big four', and languishes quite far behind that offered at the German discounters Lidl and Aldi.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in the spirit that David Potts has brought to the company and keep listening to store colleagues - the likes of a work-around for missing melon stickers does make a difference to a checkout operator!

    Pros

    Competitive employee benefits, supportive and motivating management, a degree of variety in daily duties/tasks, exposure to various aspects of the business, flexibility in work schedules which can be accommodated to suit your personal plans if communicated well in advance.

    Cons

    Hourly pay just slightly above the minimum rate, no holiday possible during two weeks before Christmas and week before Easter, only 15 min paid break if you work between 6-8 hours

    Pros

    10% discount at store and other corporate discounts.

    Cons

    A lot! No respect, no dignity, and its all about politics!

    Advice to Management

    Stop keeping possibly great managers and teamleaders in low level positions just because they work extremely hard at an easy job and keep the place going. Also thank everyone in the background.
