I have been working at Wm Morrison Supermarkets full-time for more than a yearPros
Really good people especially in my store, they have a laugh and will usually help you wherever they can.
Good break system but long hours usually to get the breaks.
Discount and discount extra days are well worth it.
Good setup for holidays.Cons
Very little in the way of promotions that can occur especially with the management shift around.
To few staff across the store meaning shelves are sometimes empty and customers get annoyed.
Lack of forward thinking on the level of area and company management: they micromanage the stores and this creates many issues within the stores.
More emphasis on filling the checkouts than filling the shelves.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Employ more staff in stores and save money by having what customers want on the shelves at all times, if people need to cue then that is what they will have to do.
Higher management needs to let the stores run as they see fit, every one is different so the managers should know their stores and how best to make them work properly, e.g. employ the right number of staff instead of being given a wage bracket to adhere to.
Refit stores especially just the checkouts or other visible systems and parts of the store which customers can see all of the time. It need to look right as much as possible.RecommendsNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wm Morrison Supermarkets.Interview Details
Applied on the M Local website, a few weeks later I was contacted over the phone by Manpower the agency that Morrisons hire to recruit. They conducted a phone interview asking about my feelings about 'fresh produce' , things to do in my local area, what does good customer service mean to me.
They then said I had passed the interview and was invited to an interview in store, this was a group interview. There was around 15 people and we were put into teams of 3-4 and someone from morrisons was placed at the table with each group taking notes and talking to you throughout the interview. We they had three tasks, the firsts was to make something out of 4 straws and a toilet paper roll so you could drop an egg from head height, the second was us asking questions to each other off a sheet most were about the local area and food, We then got given a card with a prospective shopper and there was around 30 cards on the table of different items in morrisons we then had to go through what we would say and recommend to the customer.
