Waitrose & Partners Employee Review

Good starter job

Worked here for my first job during college. It was good pay and benefits but I felt as though the training lacked when it came to certain things. I was fine on the tills yet when it came to other tasks, I had no one to support what I was doing.The workplace was alright. No one spoke to the new starters so most break times were spent alone.

Understaffed but no hours

Colleagues are lovely but cutting down hours so the shop seems understaffed. Benefits not worth it anymore, some people earning double time/ time and 1/2 on Sundays but anyone who joined now earns nothing extra

Waitrose is a productive workplace. You can meet fun people. It can get repetitive but I mean a jobs a job at the end of the day isn’t it. I would say go for it

Only good things are some friendly colleagues and occasional free food

Typical day usually starts with multiple partners calling in sick. Team leaders and managers generally can’t and won’t help with any issues, often they don’t know the answer, and when they claim to know it’s often wrong information.Company penalises partners for having covid, tells them they have to stay away from work and in the same breath give you a sickness warning for not coming in.Clear divide between night and day staff, with day staff and managers looking down their noses at night partners, despite the fact we work for the same company.Despite working hard all night, don’t let a manager see you stop and chat to a fellow partner for even 30 seconds, or they will be on your case. Even though managers do nothing but sit in the office the whole shift, very rarely getting their hands dirty. They might occasionally be seen walking the floor, playing with tickets on shelves, but that’s about the extent of what they call “work”.Overall, pays the bills. Night premium is the biggest positive I can think of, followed by some cool fellow team members.
