Productive and busy workplace
Fire, Health and Safety Officer (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 12 April 2018
My experience at Marks and Spencer was a good one. I learnt a lot of new skills. I was tasked as a key holder and responsible for the opening/closing and security of the store, which involved setting alarms and securing the building each evening.
Due to the nature of the business, you were constantly busy and always in demand, not necessarily just for your own role, but other roles throughout the business.
The Management were OK, a bit disorganised sometimes, where different managers had different policies which left staff in the crossfire.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a good staff set, training and retraining staff on Emergency Procedures, Evacuation and Fire Health and Safety rules.
