What Morrisons employees say about their job

  • Best thing

    Free food at the end of a shift is common. Pay is very good for my age and the store is central to town and close to home.

    Worst thing

    Too many tasks to complete, they vary greatly in volume day to day and curve balls are common. The department I work is short staffed.

    5.5

  • Best thing

    Interaction without lovely customers

    Worst thing

    Not enough people available to process a delivery of chilled and frozen produce as well as hold up the ‘love to help’ motto. Deliveries are intense and cause disruption and cages are heavy and poorly loaded as well as stacked high( H&S issues for shorter staff

    3.9

    Morrisons Customer assistant, September 2023

  • Best thing

    My manager and colleagues are really nice and my work place is really close to my home.

    Worst thing

    Under paid and totally under valued by the company as a whole, we are paid as if it us an unskilled job even though we are doing banking and multi tasking with alot to do on each shift.

    5.0

    Morrisons Employee, April 2023

  • Best thing

    Meeting new people, building a rapport with customers and colleagues, repeat customers.

    Worst thing

    Understaffed - having to work on the tills and stack shelves/clean. Only having 2 members of staff working at the same time, which is extremely stressful, especially when we have a delivery. Minimum wage. Head Office being out of touch with what we have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.

    4.6

    Morrisons Sales assistant, November 2022

  • Best thing

    Pay is decent for people under age 20 and the discount helps if your a student

    Worst thing

    The management is very corrupt and they only want you when they need you and won’t give out decent contracts and get new people in even when a higher contract has been asked for

    6.0

    Morrisons Customer assistant, September 2022

  • Best thing

    Working with a good group of people who all experience the same thing day by day at the store so we can support eachother through the difficult working environment.

    Worst thing

    There has been understaffing issues since I started working here and it has only gotten worse over the years. We are losing staff everyday because we are expected to do a million jobs. The people at headoffice only care about a profit so they force us to break ourselves so they don’t lose too much on our salaries. The cost of living is rising and the company refuse to pay the staff a living wage because it would mean the big guys don’t get a bigger pay check.

    4.2

    Morrisons Customer assistant, August 2022

  • Best thing

    Colleagues get on well and all help each other

    Worst thing

    Sometimes very toxic, management take their own problems out on workers. Severely understaffed and apparently incapable of hiring anyone new. The very few new staff that are hired, are all put in the wrong place with certain departments definitely prioritised over others. Gone very quickly downhill in the past 12/18 months in terms of staffing and overtime availability.

    5.0

    Morrisons Team leader, December 2021

  • Best thing

    I enjoy meeting people and doing my job

    Worst thing

    I was always picked on for not being fast but I always finished what I was given a the beginning of the shift but because of being short staff we were pushed to more work than we could do

    3.7

    Morrisons Employee, June 2021

  • Best thing

    The people I work with

    Worst thing

    Being an adult without children or elderly parents that need care. I always work the rubbish shifts. Meaning no family time or able to do my hobbie. I can’t remember the last time I was rotated a Sunday off. When management work 1 in 4 Sunday’s!
