CUSTOMER ASSISTANT in Worksop
Your experience totally depends on the people
The managers at Morrisons are very money focused, obviously, but this can be unfortunate for the lower-level workers. They expect a lot of work but you're often left understaffed, overworked, and with late product delivery. However, having friendly colleagues is what has kept me at this company for this long. Management are also NOT interested in helping you advance your career with training or extending your contracted hours unless they are pushed to do so by head office. I'd recommend Morrisons as a part-time job for students or anyone interested in just making a little extra cash, but due to the resistance to issue out full-time contracts and help their employees progress, I wouldn't look to Morrisons for a career unless you plan on going through Morrison's university training programme.(They're also inflexible on work hours, and even when only working 10 hours a week they'll still double you up - give you a late shift and an early shift the next day so you can't get a full nights sleep.)

Was okay. Nothing exciting.
Worked here for 2 years.Wasn’t terrible but wasn’t great.Management wasn’t great.Colleagues made the job bearable.Very cliquey.They advertise for internal vacancies, interview for it, offer you the job and then 2 months later tell you they made a mistake and the vacancy is no longer available so you’re stuck in the same position.

No job security
No job security. No rotas in advance. Pressure from management to do overtime and long shifts or work hours that you already said you can't do because of other commitments. Not enough staff. No thanks given to hard workers who go above an beyond. Make you feel unhappy at work.
Poor place to work
Please do not work as a manager in Morrisons worst place to work . The GM always expect miracles from you. It helps if you have a good team around you.

Wouldn’t recommend it
I have worked for morrisons for close to 15 years at this point, it used to be a really great company to work for in the days when the morrison family still owned the company, but now the company is far too geared toward how much profit they are making and what the public thinks of them rather than their staff or customers satisfaction, the management are often clueless and lazy with hugely inflated egos and levels of arrogance, one of the worst things in my opinion is that the personnel department who should be on the side of the staff are far too involved with general management and will often back them up in place of solving staffs issues instead, the work life balance is often very out of line and the job involves many long hours for very little accomplishment or appreciation of what the staff have actually done for the store or company, i have also found that there is a very large mentality of cliqueiness with the managers and there friends the people they are friendly with will often get away with little to no work or doing things that would other wise find other people being reprimanded or disciplined.
