1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I was a cashier, meaning I would scan the public's items, check prices, and sometimes even find out stocks. It was a great learning experience and I am so thankful and grateful that i was given the opportunity. I learnt how to interact with members of the public and how to overcome certain situations.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


How to help customers​ and overcome certain situations. If they wanted to do a price check or something, I would assist, and I scanned foods. I learnt how to speak to them and maintain an even level of assertiveness and informality.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoyed it quite a lot. It was good to learn new skills and apply them. It was helpful with confidence and interacting with strangers as I can be quite socially anxious and awkward.

4. How valued do you feel by Morrisons?


Very valued. It was fun and a great learning experience and great to know hot work with staff as well. A helpful experience.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


It was quite organised. I was given times to work and informed on all important things. I was given suitable times.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


A lot. They helped more when I was unsure of what to do and when. I found my feet they stepped back and let me understand on my own.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


A lot. Even before I started they prepared me and made sure I was comfortable with what was going on.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


I was not paid, it was work experience.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


Yes I believe so, and I became even more interested in work after the experience.

9. Would you recommend Morrisons to a friend?


9b. Why?

It was a great experience and it was good to learn about a normal​ day to day job that a lot of people do. It was more interesting than I thought it would be.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Morrisons?

Listen so you can ensure you understand because if you don't listen it will be harder. Try your hardest with everything even if you are unsure as all efforts are accounted. Have fun, all the employees are nice and friendly get to know them so your experience can be more enjoyable!
