Yeah bonuses and benefits are excellent. Am leaving in 2 weeks so will be stripped of my discount. Alas! I can't say I won't be glad to leave though!
I work for Waitrose eventhing you want to know ask me I have worked there for nearly 6 years!!!
Whats the pay like compared to other supermarkets
Whats the discount like
How big was this bonus for you this year.
Have you ever worked at morrisons.
I have to leave Waitrose now! I was on holiday over the results period and tehy've run out of transfers! It's a good job, I don't know many other places that give you 25% off at Thorpe Park!
I agree, I'm really gonna miss Waitrose, the bonus, the wages, the discounts, the half price tickets, the people I work with. I've worked there for two and a bit years now and I wish I didn't have to leave. I'm still gonna apply when I get to Uni though and not just coz I want food discount!
I'd recommend it to anyone, but not in Birmingham coz I want to get in there!
The hardest stuff I did was on the Customer Service Desk coz we do all the order in party food. If you mess that up, someone's gonna get mad!
Other than that it's pretty no-brain stuff like theisticandy said. Pay's good and you basically get an extra month's wages in March with the bonus and they tend to treat their staff a lot better than lots of other supermarkets.
You tend to be able to move about and do different jobs within the store too, I'm on checkouts but did shelves all over the shop, Customer Service, training new people and stuff. It's pretty varied overall, but checkouts can get a bit monotonous.
