Suitable workplace for students with good benefits.
I currently am working in the deli counter in Marks and Spencer.
A typical work day includes a lot of cleaning, serving customers, preparing food and putting food away at the end of the night.

I worked evenings while in college and it suited me at the time and am currently here while I look for something else.

Its a positive work environment and i get along great with my colleagues and everyone is uplifting yo be around and motivating.

I've learned valuable communication skills from working here and gained a lot of experience in dealing with customers and their issues and complaints.

The most enjoyable part of the job is pleasant coworkers and the company benefits and the most difficult part for me personally is dealing with difficult customers.
Pros
Extra Sunday pay
Cons
Too many additional hours at times.

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.

Store Managers and Commercials Managers Ran Me Out
It's a great work environment as staff are like family but the store managers are awful human beings that don't appreciate you or respect you.
Work benefits are good but the chance for advancement is very low.

Enjoyed the part time work
Not much to say here, was there for a month or so maximum during Christmas time. Good management, and even better wages. I would definitely recommend Marks and Spencer on a part time basis, I am not qualified to recommend it on a full time one as I have never been a full time employee.
Pros
Nice working environment
Cons
Retail

Very busy and productive.
The VM team were really good to me, They didn't question my skills in VM although they knew I was only a 2nd year VM student. They helped me advanced my skills in the industry.

I asked the workers how their salary is and they said they get 11.50 euros per hour and their hours are 8-4:30 from Monday to Friday but some do come in on the Saturday/Sunday to do extra (we're talking full-time)

They have a great canteen and the hot drinks there is free.


The amount of work was balanced. I did store checks in the morning, tables/mannequins and higher-ups for the rest of the day.


Overall, working there for the 2 weeks was a great experience!
Pros
Free Coffee, Good pay
Cons
Very Busy
