    12% off at Waitrose and 25% off everything except electricals at John Lewis, you receive one card for yourself and one for a family member. Many hidden perks at the partnership online website whereby you can bid for discounted tickets. Also many discounts off days out, insurance/holidays and restaurants. An annual ticket subsidy towards live performances including concerts, festivals, and theatre shows.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Warehouse Partner in Coulsdon, England

    Decent benefits for a part timer. Nothing amazing. Has an online portal for benefits, partnerchoice similar to TopCashBack - small % off at various retailers for all sorts. Partner bonus is likely to be small change for a part timer.

    They give you a certain amount of sick pay from the start which is helpful, they are supposed to give you a discount card but I was never given one.

    Can't remember all the benefits but will say what I remember: Staff Discount - This extends to John Lewis as well. From what I remember, unless it's changed, discount in JL was from 12% - 25% depending on the product (I think it was electricals which was 12%) whilst it was 15% at Waitrose. You can also get one discount card for a family member. Bonus - at the end of the tax year, depending on the profit of the company, you get a staff discount. I remember mine being about 6%? It's especially great if you work full - time. Just be aware that the discount of the bonus has decreased pretty much yearly. (This didn't apply to me because I was a student so don't play tax but the first £3600 of any bonus is free of income tax). Pension - didn't use it as was a student then but I know that there's a scheme where both the partnership and yourself contribute. Holidays - When joining I remember it being 22 days + bank holidays which rises with your length of service. Dining Facilities - most shops have a canteen of some sort. Leisure + Holiday Facilities - there's hotels and spas which you get a discounted rate for such as the Lake District.

    I was a temporary employee so I didn’t get any benefits or rewards because you need to be working there for atleast 3 months but my mum works in John Lewis and she gets discounts on Waitrose and John Lewis items - the percentage varies from department to department. She also gets bonuses and discounts on London attractions and cinema tickets which is cool. Like she gets to go to Kew garden for free and take a plus one for free which is cool! The benefits below are to do with my own experience as a temp by the way. If you’ve been working there for less than 3 months you get no benefits which is fair I guess!

    Good scheme to climb the career ladder within the branch itself. But can be a little stilted in terms of branching out.
