    Staff discount for working in high street stores are quite good at 50% off cards, 30% off books and 40% off stationery as well as a variety of other external discounts. However, you wont get these benefits if you work in a travel store. They get 15% off everything within their own store ONLY.

    Time off was easy to request, hours flexible. Not many benefits for part time staff as to be expected but excellent employee discount.

    No benefits at all. Used to get 15% off everything in store, now we only get discount on confectionery and books. Do not get paid for first 3 days of sick leave unless you've been there 5 years

    Employee discount card is the best thing about the benefits package at WHSmith for sure.

    Don't get employee discount for at least months after joining but is decent enough when you get it (15% off) You're offered a pension plan but the company don't pay in.

    Hardly any benefits given at all. No incentive to work apart from winning the occasional chocolate bar.
