    I have been working at Wm Morrison Supermarkets part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extra-pay on Sundays is absolutely brilliant, especially because not many companies still do it. Flexibility is also quite nice as I am a full time student at the same time. It is not exactly hard to learn.

    Cons

    It can be very stressful, especially during busy periods. It is hard work and sometimes it also gets boring (Routine).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More staff is needed, especially for checkouts, as I work in a different department, which ends up jeopardised because I am called for check outs all the time.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wm Morrison Supermarkets in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took a couple of weeks. I went into my local Morrisons and saw they had some postilions going so I got an application form to take home and fill in. It was quite a basic application with things like personal details, previous experience, availability and things like that, it took no more than 20 minutes to fill in, although I do recommend being as thorough as possible because it is the first stage of the application and will be the only sense they have of who you are and whether they want to offer an interview. I then took my application form back to the store the next day but was told the personnel manager was on holiday for a week so wouldn't be around to look at it until the following Monday, so I waited a week and had pretty much forgotten I had handed it in until I received a call from from the personnel manager on the Monday she got back asking me to come in for an interview the following day. I didn't have much time to research the company and possible scenarios that could occur during the interview which wasn't ideal but I did as much as I could. I then went for my interview the next day, the first stage was filling in 3 forms; one of which was about how healthy you are (basically just saying you haven't been in contact with any contagious diseases recently, the second form was a list of statements which you have to tick whether it is a lot like you a bit like you or not like you (Tip; Think very carefully about these answers as they will come up in the next stage) and the third was a form giving them permission to run a background check. After this I was taken through to the office where I had a very informal chat with the personnel manager mainly about my application form, what I was doing at college, and the answers I put for the personality statement earlier, from which she picked a few at random and asked me to elaborate and give examples of how that was like me. I then had to pick an item of food from a stack of cards and sell it to her as if she was a customer, this sounds very daunting but it wasn't and you can make up whatever you want about the product as long as you show you can talk to customers correctly. she then explained more about the positions available and the hours etc and said it takes around 10 days for the background check to come through after which they will be in touch. The whole interview was very relaxed and easy and took about half an hour.
