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

    Pros

    The pay was better than most other supermarkets.

    Cons

    Not flexible at all with hours, did not have a choice in what I worked. Not much rotation with work, I could only work on checkout. Full-time workers were valued much higher than part-time, management did not treat part-time workers well.
