    I worked at Waitrose & Partners part-time

    Pros

    Well paid, lots of benefits

    Cons

    Not very accomodating with the holiday, ended up leaving for exams which they were not very supportive of. There is also little ability to progress within Waitrose.

    Advice to Management

    Be kinder to your employees; everyone has their own difficulties.

    Supermarket Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waitrose & Partners (Luton, East of England, England).

    Interview

    Started with a group assessment of 6 people half of whom already knew each other so it was extremely hard to get a word in when the friends were bouncing off each other the entire 20 minutes.
    Were asked to prioritise a set of tasks, you’re marked on how much you communicate and give to the conversation. Fairly straightforward however it’s inevitable that in a group of 6 people that not everyone is going to be able to speak up in such a short time frame.
    After the group interview you have a 1-1 interview where standard interview questions are asked. Nothing is particularly difficult however the whole interview process seems extremely excessive for what is essentially a shelf-stacking job - the whole thing took over 2 hours.
