      Good atmosphere but too much pressure with little training

      Pros

      Good base pay in my opinion

      Cons

      As a temp, I was expected to encourage customers to sign up to the M&S Bank. I had a 10 minute talk with the bank about their products if that. They did not provide with enough training to be able to meet their expectations.

      Pros

      I work in the M&S foodhall. Friendly colleagues with a good sense of teamwork. I enjoy a varied working day and interact with nice customers

      Cons

      No complaints so far! You really hit the ground running so it’s a great place for those who enjoy learning on the job and pick things up quickly

      Pros

      Great leadership in the areas I have worked. Good employee benefits package, great culture, open & honest. Lots of opportunity to develop.

      Cons

      Performance Management programme was demotivating, setting objectives each year was painful. HR lacked a strategy throughout 2019. To many internal HR team restructures and new Line Managers over the last 2 years of my employment with M&S.
