Great place to work if you're a permanent employee. Trash if you're on a festive season contract.

What started off as a wonderful growing experience working at Keedo Kids MoA had quickly soured due to bad management and miscommunication. It was a very hard decision to leave but I had to because the environment was toxic.I wouldn't recommend.

Pros

None.

Cons

Long hours and bullying from management.

Management sucks

Overall nice place to work at. My problem is with the management, everything will be rainbows and sunshine until store leaders feel pressure from area managers then start throwing the junior stuff under the bus. I enjoyed the branch in the Eastern Cape, but Johannesburg branches are the worst!

Always room to grow

Starting out at cape union mart was great, what I noticed working there is that you cant have an opinion. All managers have an opinion of how they would like things to be done, they disagree with each other leaving the store staff stressed and not knowing whose direction to take.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Long hours, too much pressure from managers

Productive workplace

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.

Pros

Staff discount
