    Receiving discounts from products from John Lewis was a strong incentive that I shared with all my family. The annual bonus was also a strong incentive to do overtime.

    25% off products with the John Lewis discount card and 12% off electronics. Also the yearly bonus is quite fair.

    I mostly use the discount card for essentials that I could buy elsewhere (eggs bread cheese ect) but trust and can be assured that the products were made with good quality ingredients. The discount allows me to maintain a good lifestyle. Reduced products are further reduced for partners at times and this allows me to try something new and make healthier choices. I’ve most recently used my discount card for really large purchases in John Lewis which has made working for the company for 3 years all the worthwhile. They are quite flexible with hours at the moment and managers regularly reward me for doing things which I think everyone should be doing anyway in the way of customer service (chocolates mostly, gift cards, accolade). I actually really enjoy working at the company. Not getting my replacement discount card for 9 months and being restricted to buying waitrose products at the same price as regular customers can sometimes make dinners expensive. I’ve had the opportunity to work in different aspects of the store and still learning how to deal with new situations day by day. No two days are the same. I encourage anyone who wants to be trained in different parts of the store to simply ask. Engaged partners are valued.

    Being in a temporary contract you are not entitled to these. However if you are kept on, then the benefits are great.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Assistant Section Manager in Winchester, England

    You get an annual bonus but it is more of a profit share as everyone is a partner in the business. Can be very nice, 20% of salary but in recent years has been far closer to 4% of salary.
