The environment is healthy and the employees get along well. Management is open to listen to employees concerns and the HR department is very hands-on. Payslips are issued without fail every month and salary discrepancies are communicated well in-time.

cape union mart values the customers and staff
their top priority has always been the customer making sure that a customer does not leave their shop without a salesperson having greeted and offered help to the customer, which is something that is missing with most if not all other retailers

this a company that is still growing and growing very quickly compared to their competitors.

middle and top management stresses the importance of treating staff with the utmost respect. they believe in teams that are happy


They refer to their managers as leaders not to be seen as managers or Bosses

Working at Cape Union is lots of fun.
It teaches you how to balance your life, you learn about products that help customers and could end up helping you as well. The culture in stores is great as it endorses teamwork and achievement.

New client base is more challenging due to the expectations of the company. Customers are number one and we go out of our way to ensure customer satisfaction.

With my experience in retail I must say Cape Union Mart is definitely one of the best retailers. Very family oriented and fun at times.
Every work place has its own difficulties, which we usually got through as a team. We have leaders and not managers so these are people that you're comfortable to talk to at any given time.

Fun part is playing games in the morning meeting

Cape Union Mart, morning there is a meeting where training about products sold is done, followed by a session of games the will get everyone energized and ready for the day. I learned a lot about gadgets, camping, hiking, trail running, fitness watch, high quality cameras, how do sell including up-sell and multi-sales. company is a fun place with a lot of information that need to be stamped and be part of you. they rotate their staff in order for them to find an area they good in.
