    I worked at John Lewis & Partners part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The environment was relaxed, everyone was great to work with and supported each other really well. I genuinely looked forward to going to work and felt like the everyone was pulling together. I also felt like no manager felt like there were above there team and it felt like they really wanted the best for there staff.

    Cons

    The only slight downside was that the pay wasn't amazing but still abover average.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going
