“Being trusted to get on with what needs to be done and allowed to just be myself at work.”

Waitrose & Partners Employee, February 2022

“Paid breaks that are enforced to be taken in full, app for rotas, flexible shift patterns.”

Aldi Employee, March 2022

“Early shifts, 5am starts. Also the running of the store can be quite tight at times leaving not many people to run a store. It's still fun though and I enjoy the challenge”
