What people are saying about sick pay at Morrisons

  • Best thing

    The people

    Worst thing

    Poor management
    Being told everything last minute
    Lack of training (your always expected to know everything. They heavily rely on the training on my morri)
    Lack of stock. Meeting Amazon Statistics becomes hard.
    Sometimes we have not breaks.
    The people team in our store don’t give a toss.
    Holidays are never granted and we have to pre book everything for the whole holiday year. You basically need to know what you are doing in 2 months so you can book all your holidays.
