Cashier (Current Employee) – Devon – 16 February 2018
A typical day at work involves providing exceptional customer service at all times and ensuring customers need are met and that their experience has been satisfactory. Since starting this job I have definitely come out of my shell more and learnt to be more confident as part of my job requires me to challenge customers who i believe to be under 25 if they are purchasing age restricted products. This has taught me to stick to my guns and to know when to trust your gut, it's always better to be safe than sorry! I have to be honest, the managers at my store are not good. They do not appreciate the work and effort that their staff put in on a daily basis just to keep the store running, a simple thank you would go a long way. With our managers because we are a relatively small store everything we do is about getting reviews and keeping up the numbers on the customer comments page. This makes the job very hard to enjoy because it makes you feel as though you cant be yourself with customers and that you need to comply with corporate demands just to 'keep our stats in the green' because obviously that's more important than just improving the way we serve our customers which is not how it should be.

General chaos slow dreadful day I learned avoid these supermarket jobs at at all costs. even in between jobs management need training in people skills work place culture if your face fits or family member fine if not too much Nepotism Hardest part of the job dealing with untrained managers not all the managers were bad but supervisors who thought they were special, Good part some of the work colleagues where great fun that took the edge of this some what disappointing job
Good environment and friendly people make workplace fun and productive

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Wakefield, West Yorkshire – 8 February 2018
I enjoyed working at Morrison’s, as warehouse work is something I love to do. Due to a family member becoming seriously ill at the time I started I need to leave the job to help out at home with my mum.
Warehouse Operative/Picker (Former Employee) – Wakefield – 7 February 2018
I was working from agency, so everyday I waited for message on phone am I going or not, it totally sucked, sometimes got sent to morning shift, sometime nights, then I asked to switch to nights only, I got only night by then, but also then agency manager all the time gave me 2time start points, which wasn't alright too, because how can someone normally feel when he really don't know which time he gonna go to work or what you gonna do next week. work was really badly organised, I never knew where exactly I gonna work and all the time going to shift with worries where its gonna be at the night.
Deli Assistant (Former Employee) – Basingstoke, Hampshire – 5 February 2018
I worked in the deli area, and it was a really fun place to work in. I built an amazing friendship with other colleagues and customers. Also, the job was quite straight forward with right training given.
I left Morrison's due to poor management and them not being very felxable with my hours when i needed to be. Also so due to hoilday issues. Altrhought it was a good place to work for the staff as a whole. Good atmosphere.
I'm responsible for the job must be tidy And if I do not have the help of a friend's work done complete, I'm good work for all the workers if there's something I do not know Work I asked my boss to show me how it works
Café assistant (Current Employee) – Bath – 23 January 2018
I took up this job cause I was at college at time and I've been here nearly 5 years, the management are all very concerned on one section of the store and leave the rest to struggle, with lack of staff nearly everyday it has become very stressful these last few years.
A good time to work there when I came back from Australia. I did like working in the cash office as it got me doing new things and not repeating the same day over and over again. People were nice and there were too many managers there so it all got a bit complicated when two manager are telling you two different things to do with the same problem. I left because I needed a bigger contract to live on. I wasn't having a social life and that impacted me as a person. I did work my hours and never had to do overtime
Morrisons is a fun place and awarding place to work when the management is right. The people in Morrisons themselves always trying there best to try and make the customers happy but it never get notice but the management. The hardest part of Morrisons not having set hours and a full time contract and working in the cold and not being able to do more for the company. The fun part of working at Morrisons is working with good people and making customer happy and making friendships. I’ve learned a lot in Morrisons customer services how to be a team leader and working round things when some things can’t be sold or something can’t be worked on the shop floor.
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – Troon, South Ayrshire – 17 January 2018
Love working for Morrisons, I am always busy and have met great team mates where we always help each other to succeed. I have learned a lot about customer services, cash handling and stock management. Working here has also increased my confidence as a person.
