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

    Pros

    Regular hours (minimum wage)- contract was 12 hours over 3 days but there would frequently be more hours available if you wanted. Opportunity to increase hours during breaks between university (let them know in advance as rota is done 2 weeks before). Assisted in the opening of two new stores (my store included) where I worked overtime 40+ long hours but worth it for the extra money (maybe £450?) Busy but easy work-...

    Cons

    Fill shift - the most intensive role as you have customers asking questions (what is this? where is that? etc) which increases the time you empty your cage (which management have set unrealistic targets of 40 mins per cage-and that is for a full cage with lots of small boxes, they would calculate less for half cages or big bulky items- 15/20 mins). Cages were located strategically according to the manager/s (i.e. kitchen...

    Advice to Management

    There is so much they could do to improve morale and engagement which would mean lower staff turnover and therefore less hiring costs but they wont because they see it as a waste of an investment as they can easily be replaced. They could targeted perks to their staff- young staff get discounted driving lessons like they do in McDonalds/20-25% of baby items for parents etc but they just wouldn't.

    I have been working at T J Morris full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    decent pay, 10% discount, some good lads and girls to work with mainly English and Romanian. difficult to write 20 words that show Pros for this company

    Cons

    Full of bad mannered Polish agency staff. Really bad management skills - couldn't manage their way out of a paper bag. No respect from supervisors, Treated like cattle, expected to keep to unhealthy pick rates, and cautions/warnings are ten a penny the poles seem to run the company

    Advice to Management

    treat staff like human beings and listen to them, promote from within rather than to agency staff, get English in ALL departments before BREXIT

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

    Pros

    Some shifts where you are often left to just stack shelves with little interference

    Cons

    Management don't do anything and then expect you to push out several cages of junk onto the shelves. They also expect you to come in whenever it suits them, could literally ring 1 hour before they want you in on your day off and if you said no they'd be annoyed.

    Advice to Management

    Do some work

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

      Pros

      The 4 hour shifts, you can escape quicker.

      Cons

      You're treated like garbage by area management, if you start at a new shop be prepared for at least 2 weeks of long shifts with very short breaks, be good at problem solving because you are going to have to find room on full shelves for stock.

      Advice to Management

      Sack whoever over saw the dunfermline store opening in 2014 if hes not already been. Also, realise that half an hour break for 12 hour shifts are illegal
