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.

Waitrose is an organised company with clear values and goals that they want to achieve. There is a strong sense of team work with members working together to achieve great customer service.

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.

People not motivated
Managers are oppressive and controlling with constant monitoring
Performance not really rewarded as salary only increases rarely
