Bullying and Harassment
Given wau more hours then I wanted. Not a good relationship between staff and management. They lie about "good conditions". Shouting and anger normal.

Best years of my life.
Spent 15+ years with the company. The star aligned and it was time to change career. Leaving behind the benefits of discount , bonuses and pension made the decision difficult.

Friendly staff, unfair requirements
I feel as though the temporary staff are unfairly treated in this job as the management don’t feel as if they need to be as friendly to temporary staff because they will be gone before their term is finished. In saying that all the full time staff are very friendly and in my opinion not as good as temporary staff as they were much older and needed a lot of help from us in preparing the shop floor.

Every day was challenging
There was always something to do stock control, merchandise your department, customer focus always, great staff, great management, cleaning, working through the night to remodel whole departments, great incentives from the business, charity fundraising, staff parties to keep moral in store. Overall a great place to work I loved it.

I really liked the place and the staff.
A typical day starts at 6.30am and ends at 4.30pm.I was on a 4 day week which starts with deliveries in and empties out on loading bay.Breaking stock down into sections in coldroom and organising dates.Been available for any mishaps on floor or with any make of equipment changes or fix.Maintaining backstage areas and floor areas by keeping them clean and safe.Helping customers enjoy there shopping experience and helping with there goods when needed.To be honest i never found any part of my job hard at all.Been asked to do something out of the ordinary was so enjoyable as i would get it done.
Pros
free early morning breakfast
Cons
I took redundancy, still think about that.

My experience at M&S
A great company to work for and with. There are always new opportunities to learn new skills and work in new areas. The managers are super friendly and open to helping you grow as a representative of M&S
