Store Manager in Johannesburg North, Gauteng
on 9 March 2022
Store environment was great but no further opportunity for growth
No growth opportunities, favouritism with management and upper levels. Certain policies only favoured head office staff.Store environment was great because its almost 9 hours sometimes more of your day,so it's important to make it great more so for the team.

Did not support me, did not feel listened to as an employee and would always have salary issues.
I worked for Cape Union Mart for 6 months, and in that 6 months I've had salary problems almost every month, they either don't count all my days or just disregard the times I work, it's at the point where it's just frustrating. The energy provided in the store is amazing but from head offices side, they are just pathetic and making their employees lives difficult.
Sales Assistant in Canal Walk, Western Cape

Very fast paced
Very competitive. Very fast paced and sales driven. Clothes are too expensive so only few customers can buy which means low sales making for staff and targets
Sales Consultant in Cape Town, Western Cape

Unfair distribution amongst staff Managers not leaders
If you are wanting a job straight out of high school it's a great place to start. However not an ideal place to build a career.Plan for your future. Go study. Working in retail shouldn't be your future. Unless it's something you really want to pursue.
Sales Assistant in Pretoria, Gauteng

A good place to build character, but it still has racist tendencies
Arrive on time, finger print sign in, put your tag on, if manager doesn't have ready task for you, attend any available customers, else, fix merchandise and or fill in empty store position. Half way through the day, take one hour break, before day ends, you take on cleaning task, such as sweeping, mopping or dusting, finger print sign out and lock up.Skills Learned:Sales and communication:My sale experience has taught me that, customers have to be and feel heard before they will listen to what I have to say. Customers are likely to return if they feel helped and appreciated.Stock management:I’m familiar with the stock counting process and I have experienced what is like to lose stock to theft. Both from with in and without. Punctual:I have lost a job for being late before. I also know what its like to loose opportunities because of lack of punctuality.Communication:My sales experience have taught me that the mouth and the ears go hand in had, this has made me dependable and responsible. Management changes, every once in a while, some management, will be awesome, and some management will be unbearable.workplace culture, is not so great, often depends on management.Hardest part of job for me, was making sales, on days I wasn't having a good day. otherwise, job is relatively easy. Most enjoyable part of job is connection you build over time.
