Milngavie Waitrose - Certain Managers are vile bullies and huge liars. They have no people skills, can't play 'shop' let alone run a shop and slag off customers. They have no respect for customers or staff. They are only out for themselves. If you want your Manager to be a drug taken desperate tart who sleeps with married customers then work here. Worst Managers (excl. 2) I've ever had the delight of working with (stearing clear off)

Why would you want overtime anyway. Why not get on with your life or spend your free time looking for another job instead.

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.

Bin their favouritism project. Bin their nepotism project. Bin their Modern Waitrose project. Start by supporting their partners, rather than isolating them and relentlessly targeting them. Remove the hostile working environment that has become synonymous with Waitrose. Stop the witch hunts and the Wicker Man style of disciplineries. This may increase the morale.

I think you get great experience working within your role but find it very difficult to get the opportunity to move around other departments / area's.
I general though I class Waitrose as a great place to work.
