Worked in several different departments over my many years at Morrisons under four different store managers. A dreadful company to work for. Your working day will be overrun with work and if you're till trained (which most staff are) you'll be pulled off your department to sit for hours helping the main tills while not making your targets on your own department. You'll be criticised for this and asked to do better. Most staff are miserable which adds to a work culture of 'every man for himself.' This company are all about making money and talk a lot about helping staff but from my own experience within this store and what others have informed me, this is all talk. Staffing is constantly an issue. If you're from outside the UK and your first language isn't English you're going to be treated badly and ignored and bullied by the management team. Please consider working for another company.

I think it's the worst place I have ever worked. I have never been talked to by manager with such disrespect and attitude, if there was a problem he would brush it under the carpet and tell you if you dont like it then leave. The management just have no skills in how to talk to people and leave staff depressed!

A very busy, but pleasant working experience, daily jobs were easy, fast paced, engaging company and helpful advice and team players to help each other out, main store management were always helpful and thankful when helped them out cover shifts and help them cover sickness etc. Nohing much was difficult here especially if you just asked for support, Woking on your own may be difficult but its not something i deemed too stressful as you can only do what you can on your own.

good company to work for and a good place to progress if you want a career in retail as the possibility of progression is always open. Within the company there are always new departments to join and learn from too.

Worked on the tills, which for me personally I didn't enjoy i'm not the type of person who enjoys sitting down all day. This job was just part time whilst I was at college, so I stuck it out until my course ended.
Pros
long lunches
Cons
long stock takes

Typical working environment you'd expect from a supermarket. Depending on your role each day could be very different. Senior management is not the greatest at times, team mangers are usually a lot better in my experience. Job role will provide you with good customer experience.

I would clock in. The supervisor would tell me what till i was on. I would sign into my till and turn on my till light. I would serve customer's and help pack there bags. I would get a 15 mins break at break time and a hour for lunch. If the shop was quite i will clean my till.
Pros
Long breaks
Cons

I worked nights and the manager was appalling. Lazy, rude and obnoxious. One night myself and a colleague did 9 pallets of stock working through our break and we only had half a cage left over by the end of the shift after 9 hours. The manager was annoyed we hadn't finished soon but there was no way any could've been faster baring in mind I was 3 weeks new and my colleague 3 months new. Pay good, hours good breaks good.
Pros

being a small shop we all built up close relationships pretty quickly.
the original management was fantastic, friendly and supportive.

we all worked well together and helped each other to complete daily tasks and general running of the store.

it became difficult when we knew the shop was to close and staff moral became very low.

I have stayed friends with many of the people I worked with
Pros
discount
Cons
store closed
