What employees are saying about Morrisons

  • Best thing

    The role suits my current needs regarding working the shifts I need. The discount cards make a big difference.

    Worst thing

    Our department is very badly managed. As a whole, employees get away with doing whatever they want. Even though we are classed at "specialist" employees we are now paid the same as everyone else.
