Warehouse assistant, manager assistant (Current Employee) –  Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire7 August 2017
It is a good place to work, managers reward you for good work. Safe and secure and plenty of ways to develop in your career. Relationships are based on mutual respect and courtesy, with as much equality between its members as differences of responsibility permit.

Unreliable, and underpaid
Stock management (Current Employee) –  Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire6 June 2017
Next to no chance of progression beyond first level of management, very poor management, sub par pay compared to its competitors.
Benefits can be useful but a large change in the way the store is managed needs to occur to make it a nice place to work at

there has been some major changes within the partnership .. and I believe not for the better , senior management has been very very poor ... these have generally been sourced from outside of the partnership ..

Stock Co-ordinator (Current Employee) –  Milton Keynes29 March 2017
There is a lot of structure to the day and always targets to meet.
There are challenges across the way and it's great to work as a team to overcome these.
There is a great sense of pride from everyone and achieving results together with the excellent support of the management is very rewarding.
It's a friendly atmosphere and easy to adapt to joining the Partnership.
