    I have been working at T J Morris part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, Hours, Holidays, Staff, Customers

    Cons

    You be made work over 5 days most weeks and still never get overtime pay, you actually get told off if you accidentally go into overtime. The new senior management team for the past 2 years have pushed other leads sales out of the job and sales assistants because they didn’t personally like them. The assistant manager makes fun of his staff and ridicules them every day he is in, even speaking to foreign nationals in a discriminatory fashion. No support whatsoever. And staff feel as though they can’t go to their area manager due to how close they are with senior management

    I worked at T J Morris for less than a year

    Pros

    There aren't many. - 10% Discount outside of shifts - £8.46/hr wage - Health & Safety is taken seriously with weekly updates from Head Office

    Cons

    - Lack of time between shifts, as a Lead Sales, you are closing and more than likely opening up - sometimes less than 10 hours between shifts, especially after a stock take. - Difficult to book holidays - zero computerisation in regards to schedules. - Crappy shifts, either opening or closing. Nothing in between. - Unrealistic targets for all staff. It's impossible to do everything by procedure that is expected in the time allocated. Corners get cut and it can lead to accidents and low staff morale. - No time allocated to unexpected paperwork as Lead Sales. You finish at 5pm? You are told to clock out; regardless if you need to fill a shoplifting report in or an accident form. However you'll then be given a 'notice of improvement' for not doing the reports.

    I worked at T J Morris part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A wage of sorts every friday

    Cons

    Hours. What you are expected to do in time scale unrealistic. Rubbish pay. No proper breaks no proper training. Illegal working pattern lates into early not given required 11hours inbetween. Discount only in home store. Cant pay you properly when you leave. Lazy managers and supervisors. Too much asked of leadsales. Poor prospects unless face fits. I have never worked for a company as bad as this one. Appalling!!

    Pros

    Non apart from fill team you work with can be amusing

    Cons

    Terrible company. Managers are under constant pressure to pick at staff. Managers are bullied by area managers. Constant rule changes no consistency. Never paid Correctly. HR complaints are swept under the rug. This company makes millions at the expense of human life. You are minions in the eyes or management. Just don't do it. Look at the reviews it's a nasty company. Best thing I did was leave.

    I worked at T J Morris full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good career opportunities. I enjoy the freedom of merchandising and not having to follow a planogram as it allows me to express myself. I miss this in current jobs. It is a lot of hard work, but has a fun culture.

    Cons

    Do not finish on time. Overtime is forced/expected, Made to feel like you have to do extra.
