    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Paid over £8 per hour at aged 18. Always more hours/shifts available if you want/need them.

    Cons

    Constantly very under-staffed so given a lot of responsibility even if untrained. Colleagues including senior staff are constantly leaving so bit chaotic. Staff expected to do several jobs as well as their own! Constant phone calls asking me to work more hours and come in on my day off. Often I am unable to take my breaks because no other staff are on the counters!

    Advice to Management

    Employ more staff. Ensure 'newbies' are not left unsupervised for long periods, including expecting them to open and close departments untrained. Support staff more so they are retained. Let employees take their breaks. Don't badger staff to take on a lot more hours due to under staffing. Make the chin of command easier to access. Often there is no-one senior to talk to on shift,

    I worked at Wm Morrison Supermarkets part-time

    Pros

    Working in a convenience store with a young, determined manager, there was a sense of persistence in the workplace and a motivation to improve.

    - Great for initiating customer relations, as feedback and responses were often a priority.

    - A good sense of community with the employees, having come from a store with many part-time work for students there was definitely a feeling of 'work hard, play hard'.

    - Good communication between colleagues, with an emphasis on a Facebook group being utilised for store news and other information.

    - Flexible with working hours

    - Opportunities to try out new roles rather than sticking with the same line of work are available, although you must speak out for them.

    - A decent hourly rate for supermarket work.

    - The quick-paced environment can be challenging but also satisfying when targets are hit.

    - The management always ensure that employees are kept up to date with store turnovers, and areas that can be improved

    - Safety/legal paperwork is always completed.

    Cons

    - The work can often be mundane and repetitive, but this can be avoided by asking to try out new roles.

    - Colleague benefits could be improved.

    - With so much competition in the market, the expectations can often be unrealistic, especially from external managers and visitors from head office.

    - At times, shifts can either be overstaffed or understaffed, with the latter being detrimental to the quality of work and team morale.

    Pros

    Big family - we're all having a challenging time but the majority pull together for advice and support. Training intentions are good.

    Cons

    Expectations sometimes unachievable; when challenged are told that's the expectation so we're to get on with it. This affects morale in stores and creates labour turnover. Current colleagues are not looked after with salary with external managers being paid considerably more.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the stores and understand the challenges faced
