When there's that customer that's annoying so that you can even want to cry. I've learned many things housekeeping, merchandising, stock rotation and being disciplined. It depends what kind of people are they sometimes u find those ones who overpowers their powers. When the management is not a leader your work becomes very hard. I enjoying working with my phadimas

The people I worked was very nice.
The managers were not always around, so some people used to slack off (which I don't recommend).

The most enjoyable part of my job was helping with deliveries when I dont have much work to do on my side.

Ackermans has a very unique culture, and having been part of that culture is something I am so proud of...being a Phadima gave me a sense of purpose, belonging & accomplishment. Without a doubt the best company I've ever worked for! Bringing value to life by embracing and living their CRISP values of COURAGE, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, SIMPLICITY & PERFORMANCE...ALWAYS!

You have to be on time all the time to start work and is important to work as team. The most important thing is to always wear the uniform accordingly

All governed by values and makes
It easy for everyone to get along and work together. The culture here is very rare and you can’t get it anywhere. It really is an employer of choice

Ackermans is a fantastic company to work for. The culture is dynamic young bright and crisp. Transparency is key especially for our CEO - you are always informed about events and changes within the organisation. Not to mention the benefits are amazing. Staff is well look after even though salaries are not as market related but you offset lack of with benefits and having peace of mind knowing that your company cares for you and your loved ones. I had a ball here :)
