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.

Cons

Salary issues, Uniform has to be paid for out of own pocket

Unfair distribution amongst staffManagers 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.

Pros

Staff uniform discounts, Excellent discount on products, One of the best salary increases, Great benefits such as provident and medical aid, Company offers bursaries if it's aligned with marketing, Business and HR.

Cons

Bad management, Long hours If you don't earn enough medical aid might not be for you, If the bursary is approved you need to payback the money or work your time back to the company.

Great company values

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.

Great company

Management is hard to please,you need to know someone to get promoted in time or else you wait for years.colour is also an issue,the lighter you are the better chances you have to be promoted.

Motivate and fun to work

Very motivate and learn a lot found it more competitive I have learned how to keep time management and how to supervise others as well as giving the good quality of service to the clients. The management was good in terms of wanting others to learn and lead. The culture was welcoming everyone in the store, black,white and small to big in terms of sizes. The hardest part in the job was to solve customers problem without managers assistant and that has help me to stand on my own even for others. The pay day was more enjoyable, manager would buy us food for lunch and energy drinks to boost energy for a new month.

Productive, fun, educational and dynamic.

Working at the company, in the store (Old Khaki) we had to know our products very well in order to sell them to fit the customer's needs. We learned about our products in fun and innovative ways not only to improve knowledge on what we sell but also our customer service with role play. It was so much fun.
