    I worked at Waitrose (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great flexibility, good working hours, friendly atmosphere, overall was a great place for part time employment ' only worked Saturdays however

    Cons

    sometimes did not get paid when last customers were in store, due to customer service were forced to wait for last remaining customers

    Advice to Management

    improve the system of breaks, a shift with less than four hours did not warrant a break. however after staring at a screen for this time it was not healthy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Waitrose (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    It was ok. The manager took me to a room in the staff area. Nice staff lounge by the way. She asked mostly what hours I can work. I was 16 at the time so they care if youre still in full time education. I think thats why I didnt get it.
