Meat and fish counter (Former Employee) –  Crawley, West Sussex6 December 2017
If your working Saturdays it's almost gaurentted no one will ever cover your shift which = no days off for you!. Training is also very limited, other co workers will train you, there's no proper guidelines which is both a bonus and a downfall
Pros
Good pay, good lunch breaks
Cons
Inflexible, limited training, left on your own if on a counter

Satisfying fun respect.
Supermarket Assistant at Branch o#ffice. (Former Employee) –  Northwood21 June 2018
A typical day involves doing your duties in my case, office duties, audit work and ching up.I learned that good customer service is both rewarding and fun. Management were always approachable and the culture was respect and team work. Working for a caring company made my work all the more enjoyable.
Pros
Resect, team work and feeling you had a voice.

I was completely forgotten about
Partner (Former Employee) –  Holsworthy20 June 2018
I worked at Waitrose for a short time but I was completely seen as disposable.
I was hired, put in the office to do the online training and then expected to know exactly what I was doing out on the shop floor.
I ended up doing the same job every shift just because it's all I knew and no one ever noticed that's all I was doing.
Turns out, I was never properly trained, and my managers had failed to notice this, and should never have been allowed out onto the shop floor.
I was never till trained either and was pretty much there to make up numbers and was left to my own devices.
Impersonal managers who never learned my name and didn't want to get to know me.
I'm pretty sure no one even noticed when I left.
Pros
Not a lot
Cons
Impersonal, boring, soul sucking
