Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
As long as you do your job you should be fine. Some Managers are totally useless, will ignore you and walk away while you're still talking to them. Others are amazing and will give you all the support you need.

Treated as a number good luck if you want to progress as it takes 6 months to basically become a key holder. You will work more unpaid hours and get terrible shift patterns, expect to have no life if you want management. Other than that not bad for a student.

Used to be fine. Not now.people leaving because mainly for bullying

Really bad work life balance as expected to work anytime during shop opening times. Not appreciated for the effort made especially during busy periods and no staff.Hard to resolve issues as no one takes responsibility to address them or cant make the time. Expect to do this out with work hours.Used to be subsidised staff canteen but that stopped and its now pretty expensive and not always staffed.Get abuse from public about stupid things. Ie no trollies at the door


Most of the customers


No work life balance

It was awful workinf there, they expected so much of you. Didn’t allow you any time to decompress. Expected to pick 200 items an hour whilst a store full of people, lost 20 staff within 4 weeks and refused to hire.

Store dependant

Regardless of your skills/knowledge it’s dependent which store you are based. Some stores have fantastic SMs and PMs but others have poor ones. Some will love you with your passion and results, some will make it personal regardless of what you achieve giving you poor grades and no pay rise.

Horrible place to work. Management will find any excuse tothrow you under the bus . Often working single handed doing the work of 5 people and woe betide you make a mistake as disciplinary are handed out like sweeties . All in all I recommend staying away and only work here as a last resort

Awful understaffed place

Things have got progressively worse over the years to the point of chronic understaffed, store managers will still expect the impossible, the main loser is the customer as availability is awful. Sad to see a once good company to work for in such a decline, its all about pr and public image now, behind the scenes is a different story.

Short staffed

Lovely people who work there but managers are not supportive to staff and always short of staff. Rotas are not done properly so some days we have a lot of staff then other days we are soo short staffed that it makes it hard to do your job how you want to.


The staff

Was a nice company to work for a while back. Not anymore. Understaffed, underpaid, stressful. Bullying management. Penny pinching. Most of the long serving staff are unhappy. Not interested in contracted hours anymore. All staff are meant to be fully flexible. However if your face fits you will be given set hours monday to friday, early shifts . If your face doesnt fit you will be given all the weekends and late shifts


Staff discount

Overworked and unappreciated

It’s nothing like it used to be. When someone leaves there never replaced your just expected to pick up more work until there is so much to do you can’t complete the job. Your never checked on to see if your coping and often work alone with little recognition for the hard work you put in.

Productive work place

Can be fast paced and sometimes stressful especially if your department is understaffed. However the majority of the people are lovely and very helpful.


15% discount and 10% discount for friends and family, always busy, good pay


Understaffed, workload can be piled onto you, stressful

Poor company to work for

This is a poor company to work for there is no respect for staff in the store and that includes management, in fact as a manager you are actually told to treat staff like dirt on your shoe as in head offices eyes there easy replacable and that is why of you pop down to your local Morrison's it will look like a bombs hit it and they will be gaps all over the shelves and for anyone thinking about investing most departments don't make any money the only way the company stays profitable is threw cost cutting

Management are a disgrace .

Pay structure is all wrong, management are very poor.Expect you to load your van, and add any substitutions to order's in 30 minutes whilst team leaders just waltz around not helping you at all.

Soul destroying

I spent 6 years trying to develop, only to be pushed and knocked at every opportunity. Management set unrealistic expectations and they always push to breaking point. The store I worked in allowed a 17 yo on electric pallet trucks which resulted in injury and management couldn't give a toss. Absolute scum company to work for.


Pay was ok


No life outside work

Its ok

Been here a few years at the time of writing,night shift the staff you work with are mainly ok couple of favourites get away with doing whatever they want but that is about it. Managers when you ask them a question haven't got a clue 90% of the time or just fob you off with a ' i'll get back to you'. Most of the day staff and management team we don't see so can't pass judgement other than the people manager who's one of the rudest people I have ever met. Treats a problem or question thats being asked of him like it's a massive pain in the a***. Horrible person. In short first couple months are ok after that it's every man for himself.

lots of hardwork and dodgy management

Lots of hardwork having to be done due to low staff and poor management, no training provided for some duties, upper management tried to avoid paying some of my wages, etc. Overall would not recommend.

Unprofessional management

Management are no help. Have no understanding of your job and expect the impossible. Hrs are cut and your expected to carry out 2-3 person job. Breaks are a problem as there is noone to cover you and Management do not check that you've had a break or need a break. You constantly have to apologise to customers for limited stock as either not ordered or delivery is late.

awful management

Pay is excellent but management are overall useless . Don’t care about those below them and you’re just a number to everyone. Get fair holidays and that’s about it really .

Engaging and fast-paced workplace

Usually understaffed and working on extremely tight budgets and allotted hours. Good for making long-lasting friendships and developing skill sets. Eager for staff to cross-train and development. Management slightly toxic but if you're willing to be pally with managers you'll advance within company.
