At Leyland RDC the organisational culture is mainly day-to-day panic. Managers are barely computer literate, never mind organisationally skilled. Every day is like an episode of the Keystone Cops.

There is nothing organized in Waitrose. The culture stinks. No one has a clue what to do at all levels in the branch. It’s run on a wing and a prayer basis. The culture is based on being on 3,4 or 5 different places at the one time, even that isn’t good enough for partners on your level and management partners. You are surrounded by zombie partners. Managers ask stupid questions: why is this not done? How long is going to take? If I was able to work in multiple locations at the one time I wouldn’t be working for Waitrose. It’s hopelessly unorganized.

It is a very friendly environment to work in with great managers to support you through out your time there. There is a strong feel of team work through out the store as you all work towards the yearly bonus which is shared equally between the partners by percentage on how much you earn and contribute to the company.
