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

Pros

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

Cons

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
