Working at edcon opened many doors for me but I was only as a casual employee which came with its challenges in terms of salary.

The overall company

The production of a company mainly relies on the management to enforce its professional sceptics. Therefore the problem I experienced in the Edcon divisions was that there is no team work, the management doesn't have the full capacity to enforce its laws against its employees. There are no concrete reviews to the business operations were variations exists, for example if the budget of the month is not met, it is the management's task to call up a formal meeting to address the issue to its employees. The other major thing is that the task of the current day should be planned prior in order to make the employee aware of what he is expected to do. Other than the communication gets across the store in the morning. The salaries as well as the working shifts of the employees is not well structured, there are always complains by the employees due to salary dissatisfaction every time when its pay day.

Pros

The lunch time allocation was fine, even though the management will have excess times for lunch more than the general employees

Cons

The structure of hours was not fair as there were employees with more hours than other employees
