I took a job as a customer delivery driver, but most of the time I was sent to work inside the store with whatever job they needed doing; This included the checkouts, replenishment, pushing trollies outside and washing up in the cafe. I personally didn't like this but understand others may enjoy the variety. Management seemed to be inexperienced and top heavy; there were far too many managers 'managing' whom have had little experience elsewhere. It was expected for everyone to book all of their annual leave in advance for the whole year by early march, which to me is an unreasonable request, how are you meant to know your holiday plans for the whole year?
I wouldn't say it's a bad place to work, but it's not that much different from any other supermarket job, and in fact lower paid. Waitrose do work you hard, and expect a lot of flexibility; and they seem to get away with a lot by calling employees 'partners' who apparently have a say in how the business is run- yes to an extent, but it's mediocre.
