Best place ever
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  London7 October 2017
Worked there during a hectic time (holidays) which got me really worried but turned out to be a lovely place with good people always there to help you out and that gives you respect. If someone has a job there never let it go as the places where I went afterwards were really awful.
Pros
Amazing canteen with really cheap meals, Fair and lovely staff
Cons
None as far as I worked there.

Caring and friendly
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  London8 August 2017
The managers were very caring towards you and had a very friendly approach to you. You spent a lot of time on your feet but were given good breaks. I learnt how to engage with costumers in a more formal manner. Hardest was the lack of staff in Womenswear department, which I think effected costumer experience due to long queues in changing rooms and tills.

Good Place to work
Service Desk Analyst (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London28 July 2017
John Lewis is a good place to work, but the business is going through many changes, so any jobs taken could be in a review very soon.

Good benefits, but poor management throughout.

John Lewis
Team Leader Customer Service (Former Employee) –  London9 May 2017
The John Lewis partnership used to be a very good place to work.
There were many benefits as well as career development opportunities.
However in these tough times understandably standards have slipped and they do not look after their staff as good as they used to.
It is still very fair the treatment.
Pros
Good staff discount
Cons
Friends and families work here and things can get 'clicky'
