A lot has changed since I had last worked for Edcon, from ownership, management and policies. Back then it was more structured and the enrichment was mostly relaxed but with competitive edge amongst co-workers and/or stores

Pros

Salary was great and market related for management positions

Retail hours

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Fast paced creative dreamland

The creative side of your brain gets worked thoroughly as there is constant meetings and strat sessions where your opinions get heard but unfortunately not everyones ideas come to fruition. At Edcon the sky was really the limit where ideas were shared. Culture was dependant on who your line manager was and sometimes their mood. Hours of work was dependant on how quickly you wanted to get promoted or when deadline was for and most of the time the deadline was yesterday. If you love fast paced, shoot from the hip, cowboy style retailing I normally called it then Edcon was for you. Edcon always had strong people but directional successful leadership was always lacking because it was always a power struggle. Strangely enough I would go back any day because they paid you enough and you were sorted in benefits to get over the negative.

Pros

Good salary no limits, room for growth, good benefits

Cons

Long hours, power struggle, politics in your face, highly fast paced

It was very productive to me because I learned how to work as an team.and to organise the room by parking clothes and numeracy

I would like to recommend this company because they gave me an opportunity to change my life and my family as by that time they was no one who was working in my family.that opportunity helps me community with different people by the way I endup working at Edgar's at sondton.edcon helps Yong tenegers to find a way of life.

Pros

We get free snack an lunch also

Cons

Normal hours if it possible for over time
