    I worked at Waitrose & Partners part-time

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere, supportive managers who schedule daily tasks very well in order to allow for a good working speed and what not.

    Cons

    Sometimes it got quite boring and monotonous doing the same job over and over and over again so maybe a bit better job design could fix this issue and keep the workers more engaged.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it did get quite boring and monotonous doing the same job over and over and over again so maybe a bit better job design could fix this issue and keep the workers more engaged.

    I worked at Waitrose & Partners part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Definitely get driver trained if you want to get out and about each day. The driving broke up the normal day with some fun excursions.

    Cons

    Reversing is sometimes difficult, especially without sensors. Even if you are employed as a driver, you will also have to work on shop floor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing
