Fast paced environment, but worthwhile experience

The environment needs you to be on your toes especially month end and launch days, expect the unexpected, build friendships that turn into family. Core Group (iStore) is the best company to work in

Productive and fun workplace and teamwork.

I learned capturing of Client information onto All service Providers if need be and into Apple Database, selling of Apple products according to clients needs and setting up of devices and new Lines and Upgrading Contracts. There's excellent team work and everyone looks out for each other. Management has good leadership skills and they also listen to your concerns.

Everything at core is fine except for not paying their employees well and that everyone is a warehouse assistant

Working at core group is well with me as we get the chance to gain experience in many thing but I'm not happy as the management does not care about us as workers

Pros

They food is not good at some point

Cons

Can't complain

Work is work. No messing around like it should be in a work place

I just felt I was not a good fit due to 1 specific person I report to as he is set in his ways and is not willing to listen to new ideas or suggestions. Had no leadership from this person and up skilling takes place to assist me in bettering myself or carreer.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Not flexible

Standard

Standard workplace, free lunch was provided daily which was a plus. High pressure environment due to the nature of the product being distributed. Overall, not a bad place to work

Fun exciting products, tough organisation

Exciting products and environment, if you are willing to put up with excessive, somewhat unreasonable demands, while job security is not great. Level of organisation, training and structure also much lower than what you would get in a big company. Hierarchy such that employees are not clear on what or how many jobs they are filling. Good for those liking more of a 'cowboy' culture.

Pros

Exciting products

Cons

Disorganisation, lack of training and HR skills, high demands

Great company where hard work pays off

ore group is a lovely company to work for; I am so grateful for the opportunity they have given me. I have wonderful co-workers who have shown me the in and outs of the jobs and who have being very patient with me. Management have their employees best interest at heart and are easily approachable. What I love the most about CORE GROUP is that their CEO is very humble and willing to accept suggestions from employees. There is a very much open door approach to the organisation.

Pros

Great organisational culture

Cons

long hours

Productive and fun workplace

Started working at 6:30, loading courier trucks for deliveries. Marked attendance register, checked the invoices to stock. Dispatch stock to in-house couriers. Learned dispatching and receiving stock at a distribution centre/warehouse and received certificates. Management was all right to work with. Co-workers did excellent work. There was not really any hard parts to the job. Most enjoyable part was joking around with the co-workers.

Pros

Free Lunches

Cons

Long Hours
