    Alright Discount, but limited to Entertainment & Stationery Products only. WHSmith do have great other discounts with loads of other companies.

    Takes way longer than it should to receive staff discount card. However, travel benefits are good with the discounted staff meal deal at the airport (£3.30 instead of £3.99)

    I got employee discount - 50% off cards, but I think it was 20% for other product ranges. There were no other benefits.

    The company pension scheme will match the basic contribution. Staff discount up to 25% on stationery products and greetings cards. Free books for staff members when launching the Richard and Judy Club. Management get paid an additional amount for working Boxing Day. Staff discount doesn't apply to confectionery or news/magazines or DVDs.

    There is no benefits package, you do your shift you get paid don't expect any extra for doing overtime or unsocial hours

    Decent pay and you get staff discount after you have completed your probation period.

    The best thing is available overtime and the worst thing is the management and pay.

    No bonuses for good sales periods. The staff discount is brilliant if you buy a load of greetings cards- 50% off. But other than that its not great.
