I worked at Waitrose part-time (More than a year)

Pros

A great annual bonus, which should steadily increase each year. Discount of 12% and 25% at John Lewis
If you're looking for more work, Overtime is usually available but you just have to be quick.

Cons

-Annoying customers (Can be necessarily posh)
- Repetitive..

    Pros

    Great benefits including holiday cottages, discount card, pay good, bonus good and fair

    Management level is a lot of hours, and retail is 24/7

    Advice to Management

    You have to go back to the Waitrose ideals of offering Partners a work life balance and not turning into Tescp

    Everyone who works there is friendly and respectful

    Cons

    Never seems to be enough staff so constantly running around.
    Never enough supervisors so can wait for a while before getting things varified

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers more, if they say there isnt enough staff, hire 1 more for next shift.
