    I worked at Waitrose part-time

    Pros

    good community feel, good training, some good managers although can be hit and miss, flexible hours during exams

    Cons

    some managers were difficult to get along with, HR were useless and payments often did not include overtime.

    Advice to Management

    keep developing your training strategy and encourage people to be involved in the partnership

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Waitrose.

    Interview

    The hiring process is easy. Group interview with about 12 people split in half. They give you a scenario and you have to put points across of what you would do. They then do a one to one interview with hiring managers of any locations in London
