Checkouts Operator (Current Employee) – Surrey – 21 September 2018
Working at Morrison's, everyday is different; meeting new customers with different needs! My typical day at Morrison's includes working on the checkouts. I serve customers and can help them with their enquires. From this job, I have learnt many transferable skills such as good communication and being adaptable to be able to meet the customers need. Morrison's is very diverse with the staff they hire and the management ensure we all have equal opportunities of progressing within the company. I genuinely enjoy my job and the people I work with. The hardest part of my job is when there is not enough supervisors on duty and all 16 tills are open. We are occasionally left waiting for a while before the supervisor can assist us. This leaves customers very frustrated.
3 discount cards which are available also for friends/ family.
Too many tills and occasionaly not enough supervisors on duty to help.
My time at Morrisons, Chippenham SN14 was a very enjoyable time as I was working with good people. The managers were friendly and helpful, everyone would help one another.
I only worked on the weekends as I had sixth form 5 days a week and late shifts weren't available. I worked mainly on Saturdays which meant I had to be able to work hard on the busiest day of the week, this meant I had to make sure my work rate was good to keep up with the workload.
I would mainly stack shelves, show customers to products and make sure my department was clean and tidy. As the distribution of people between departments was poor, when my department had put all the fresh fruit and veg out in the morning as fast as possible, we would often be moved by management onto other departments where I did a variety of different tasks from cleaning dishes in the cafe kitchen to sorting the stock room. Towards the end of the day, we had to complete an audit and reduce the prices of any products that were expiring on the current day.
Management was good, the managers gave out jobs that were realistic and achievable whilst also being challenging at the same time. Available working hours varied, some weeks there would be as much overtime as I would like to work and other weeks there would be no extra hours at all, getting more hours was difficult.
I enjoyed being on my feet and getting things done, I took a lot of pride in making the department look tidy and clean. I also enjoyed interacting with customers, and took satisfaction in helping them with finding what they were looking for.
Reduced cafe prices in the staff room, 10% discount, friendly colleagues
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Leicester, Leicestershire – 19 September 2018

Produce Assistant (Former Employee) – St Ives, Cambridgeshire – 19 September 2018
Worked really hard and every hour , sometimes 11 full days straight without a break, got a disciplinary for not working hard enough. Got regularly screemed at by Managers and team leaders. Eventually moved to another department to get away from those managers.
Happier then had 2 days off sick with a sickness bug, when I went back to work I was handed a warning by the personel manager for taking time of sick and told that my total of 4 days sick is a discipline matter and if it happens again I will be sacked as my attendance is now below the expected by Morrisons!!!
No surprise that I am looking for another job as soon as possible.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Winsford – 18 September 2018
My hours where different everyday as I was part time. I started working on the chicken counter where I kept the ovens clean and pre-ordered food and the end of the night. I served customers anything from whole extra tasty chickens right down to pork sausages and chicken nuggets. My next department was the salad, pizza and sandwiches. I made fresh pizzas instore in the evenings and fresh salads and sandwiches in the mornings. We had to keep everything tidy so cleaning was a high priority.

Night Worker (Resigned) (Former Employee) – Oxted, Surrey – 11 September 2018
Work from 10-7 (shop opens at 6am). Staff canteen offers reduced snacks. Taught to shelf replenish, use a pump truck (to move pallets of produce about), use a bailer (both for plastic and cardboard) and face up (turn products to front neatly) the shelves afterwards. The pay is good but pressure is on to work fast and be accurate. Constantly short staffed due to high turnover of employees who don't get on with the current manager. Have to work public holidays (not Christmas Eve/Christmas Day/New Years Eve though). Will miss the money but not the bi-polar management plan.

Cashier/Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire – 7 September 2018
Working for Morrisons can be quite a challenge. Dealing with many different types of personalities and states of mind. My Manager is as flexible with my 13.5 hours as possible but due to the fact I constantly work weekends I find it very difficult ,as in my opinion and many others once you've got contract hours they are virtually impossible to change. Very little time is given to discussion due to every one been so busy. I do have a good working relation ship with all members of staff and team work is very important for the store to succeed .
