Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Northampton – 20 April 2018
While working at warehouse for the John Lewis company I enjoyed the hours I was given and was surrounded by friendly staff members.Respected company very lots of benefits and days out to do with your family
everyday is different and brings some challenges to complete the tasks, but there where fun starts. stick around longer and u find lots of awesome reasones why John Lewis is cool place to start your career.
Security checks in place for entering and leaving the site that take an enormous amount of time to complete. The pay is terrible, the break structure is terrible and they will literally sack you on the spot.
Distribution Warehouseman (Current Employee) – Enfield – 11 August 2017
I have worked faithfully for JLP for many years. First in Watford and then to Enfield. Since moving to Enfield gradually the working environment has worsened. It is such that I no longer enjoy going to work. Despite being into my 19th year the so called 6 months off is being gradually removed and all employees feel undervalued. I feel I need to be in an environment that makes me happy.
Multi Skilled Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) – Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh – 16 May 2017
Storing stock, sending stock to john Lewis Edinburgh store. Making up giftlist parcels (i.e for weddings, engagements etc). Sending white good items back down to our DC'S. Re-valuating returned stock from customers to see if they can be debited back or reduced and sold. Customer satisfaction is the most enjoyable part of my job, we work as a close and good team. My managers have taught me a lot and I have always gotten on with all of peers overs the years as I am very hard worker , reliable and loyal.
Worked at John Lewis' Northampton warehouses from Oct 2016 to Jan 2017. Full-time, shifts were 6am-2pm for one week, 2pm-10pm the other week.
Management are helpful when needed and the job pays well for warehouse work. It is a grind though, personally I could only do this part-time again. Full-time is too much of a grind in this kind of work.
Good pay, prompt payment of wages and holiday pay.
Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) – Park Royal Greater London – 7 March 2017
Receiving and despatching goods, making sure stock goes to the right outlets, checking for damaged goods. I learned how our department worked and how it affected other areas, to do the job to the best of my abilities. Management were strict but fair, and would go out of their way to help if you had a problem be it within the warehouse or personal. The hardest part was getting up at 5am in the morning to start work, the most enjoyable part was knowing all your tasks had been done with no handover to the next shift.

John Lewis partnership is a respected retail company that has branches all over England,Scotland and one in Wales. They also own Waitrose supermarket group. When you have passed your initial assessment period you become a partner in the company with all the benefits that come with it including discounts, profit sharing and access to company leisure benefits and clubs. The opportunity to advance your career within the company is available to everyone and the training that you receive is of the highest level. I found the working hours very suitable for a good work/ life balance and the work environment very friendly and encouraging. Many people like myself have spent most of their working lives with the company which i think explains why they are such a highly rated company to work for.
Staff discount, Annual Bonus, subsidised meals and subsidies to various clubs and events.
