I want to work for Marks and Spencer because when I visit their stores it is always a pleasant place to be with great products and really helpful staff. I would really enjoy and be motivated by a company who focus on customer service at the highest level.

Can only comment on previous job in a small town store but suffice to say there was/is definitely a clicky culture where some managers treat others differently because they formed “friendly relationships” with customer assistants which goes against the grain of good management practices.Managers are supposed to have “duty of care” for all employees and not take it upon themselves to be over friendly, merging that manager/employee divide which erodes all respect.

A skull cap or big brimmed trilby, little metal rimmed glasses, if time grow a beard and those little curls at your temples, and wear a black suit from the 1970's that's slightly too big. Go in calling every one "my boy" or "oi vey" and say I am not pretending,I can prove it wanna c, before dropping your 👖and waving your 🐓( not a chicken by the way but a co_k!) about. If all else fails 💰!!
