“Employed by Waitrose.”

published 27/09/2005

ProBonus scheme, working for a more 'environmentally ...

ConsCan be repetitive.

I have been working in one of the smaller branches of Waitrose for about a year and a half now. I work on the tills and was also given the opportunity to train to work on the customer services desk. This was a benefit for me because I sometimes get bored working on the tills, so transferring to...

“Waitrose woooooo”

published 27/08/2008

ProGood benefits

ConsBoring if you don't do many jobs

About me I left sixth form early because I wasn't happy, and wasn't studying what I enjoyed. As my mum had worked at John Lewis in Oxford St for 25 years, she highly recommended I work for the Partnership (which Waitrose is included in for those who don't know). As I was a bit depressed and lost...

ProGreat Working Atmosphere, Many Benefits

ConsNone That I Can Really Think Of

I've worked at my local Waitrose branch for just under a year now, and in this time I have discovered that this job is unlike many others. Having friends who work at Tesco's, Sainsbury's, ASDA and even M&S, I can safely say that this job is the perfect prospect for a student looking for some...

“Waitrose is different”

published 26/09/2010

ProPartner benefits, bonus scheme, training, support

ConsRetail business is hard work, unsociable hours

Waitrose was my local supermarket in my local town so naturally an obvious choice for a Saturday job. I was sixteen when I started working for Waitrose and continued working for them until I was twenty. Great I hear you say so what is the point of this review? Well I'm now 38 and successfully...

“Waitrose employment”

published 06/06/2005

ProSteady, competitive pay & many partner benefits

ConsAs a part time, I am rarely recognised

I've now worked at my local Waitrose for just shy of two years, and will be leaving, fingers crossed, to go to university in September this year. Although my job was quite literally the part time student job that we all have at some time or another, and it's not a job I would wish for full time...

Conspolitics

I worked in Waitorse for over 3 years, whilst at college and when home from University. I enjoyed most of my time working there over the years, as Waitrose is part of the John Lewis Partnership, which means worker are treated equally. What I found over time is that it wasn't much different to...
