Working n M&S has helped me gain a lot of insight of how a supermarket works and most importantly how to interact with customers. Dealing with customers has to be the most enticing aspect of the job as you meet various types of customers, which is mostly fun

Customer Assistant (Former Employee) – Hazel Grove, Greater Manchester – 9 June 2018
The pay was good and was not strenuous but the management was unnecessarily bossy. it is important for management to have a lead roll in the workplace but the managers thought they where much better at anything they did even when they clearly where lacking in some skills.
customer sales assistant (Former Employee) – Beckenham, Greater London – 8 June 2018
At Marks and Spencer's I learned how to work within a team efficiently. I realised that working within a team will make life easier and it will make tasks be completed a lot more efficiently. Working for M&S made me more aware of handling difficult customers and how to help people that are struggling.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Paddington, Greater London – 8 June 2018
Not great for development. That said, it is a good place to work. The discount is a nice bonus. The people are generally nice. Management wants to do the right thing, I just think they take too long to make decisions.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Norwich City Centre, Norfolk – 8 June 2018

Friends and family - that's what counts when it comes to hiring people. No skills, experience or education needed if you only have connections. Hard work and dedication never to be recognised or rewarded. Nepotism, personal ambitions and no team players within all levels of management ruin the meaning of "customer comes first" policy. Be aware!
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Plymouth, Devon – 7 June 2018
I worked here as Temporary Staff over the Christmas Period. Everyone is very Friendly. The most Enjoyable part of this job was interacting with customers, getting to know them while working at your own pace. It gets busy, so you will face challenges in the work place. The management is good. I worked on the ladieswear department which tasks ranged from being on the tills, putting out stock and working in the fitting rooms.
There is never a dull-day within my job role at marks and Spencer, you are never sure what to expect which is great, i work a long some great people, every day can be different as we are allways unaware of the business of our store, many days we are forward planning events and checking for all offers that are about to come our way, Christmas is one of our biggest and can take several months to organize.
I love the fact that we have our regular customers that love coming in either fora chat and coffee or a bit of shopping i thrive on great customer service and pride myself in my job. ~
Fire health and saftey officer (Former Employee) – Streatham Hill – 4 June 2018
M&S is a great place to work, if you want to move up in the buisness, you simply ask a manager and they will point you in the right direction, though if they feel your not ready or not performing, they won’t hesitate to drop you. Essentially you keep up or you get left behind.
Team Member/Customer Service assistant (Current Employee) – Liverpool – 3 June 2018
I find M&S very easy going, they were willing to give me a chance when no other company would and I am very grateful for that. It is a great working environment, the staff are friendly and very professional as expected.
Most Staff are friendly, very helpful and never a dull moment
angry/upset customers, sometimes a lack of leadership
Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Perth, Perth and Kinross – 3 June 2018
My shift is always busy. You don't get time to stand around for even a few seconds. There's always restocking or tidying to do. However, when you do a long shift (over 4 hours) you only get 20 minutes break (or 30 if you do over 6). I've learned a lot and have been in different parts of the store. The staff are friendly and always there to help. Staff rota's are a bit chaotic at times and a lot of staff leaving at the same time only leaving a few to hold the fort. Free food and drink provided in the staff lounge.
Wages great. Staff lounge includes free food and drink
