    Worst thing was that it went down over the years I was there. First year it was 11%, second year it was 8%. Losing profits rapidly.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Waitrose Supermarket Assistant in Beckenham, England

    The best thing about the waitrose benefits package was that you get 15% off in waitrose and 25 off in john Lewis, and money back when you go to concerts and restaurants.

    Very good discount in john lewis and waitrose, with the christmas bonus coming at the end of the year. Also opportunity to buy a membership at the country club. However, working over xmas from november all through to new years, the busiest time of year, because I had not been there 3 months i didn't recieve any bonus for my work.

    best thing is the yearly bonus from the profits, a percentage of your annual wage in one lump sum

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Supermarket Assistant in London, England

    Bonus at end of financial year. Used to better than it is now, but is consistent from lowly supermarket assistant all the way up to CEO. Sense of fairness. As well, lots of extra benefits, opportunities and discounts on holidays and tickets to shows and sport. Time off was surprisingly easy to book off when needed for exams. Employee discount at Waitrose and 25% off at John Lewis.
