Calm Place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was furloughed and transferred to Waitrose for a month. I actually preferred working there. Breaks are split in two. If you’re on tills, it’s fine.

Never a dull moment

You will always have something to do! Never standing around. It’s a very fast paced go!go!go! Environment. But also heavily focussed on customer care and being polite and approachable.

Pros

Discount card

Cons

Strict team leaders

Enjoyable and easy-going workplace

Working in Waitrose is very enjoyable and fun. There I variety of tasks that can be given to you from simply stacking shelves to serving customers in the café. Satisfactory training is given depending on where in the shop you will be working and there will always be other colleagues to support you.

Wonderful Workplace

It was a cold warehouse and doing night shift in cold places could get you sick with fever, but that didn't stop me from working there and learning new things and collecting great opportunities and gain a lot of experiences in such a big deal warehouse.

Pros

Free stuffs sometimes

Cons

i live 1h from it by public transport

productive and fun workplace

Shifts goes quick, loads of duties to do on a day to day basis. Learned to provide high customer service. Tight deadlines to finish a cage. The bonus payout is great.
