The managers are sneaky

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The managers are very sneaky. They have their favorites and they are back stabbers. Nonetheless the culture was great, the colleagues were fun. The one thing I also didn't like when you make 1 mistake they'll pull their out but no acknowledgement when doing something good.

Pros

Job security.

Cons

Inconsistent rules, management act immature.

Casual employment

Edgars had given me a very good experience of working in the retail industry. With a fairly relaxed atmosphere, great co-workers and managers, and a great working environment, I would gladly work for Edgars any day. However, this was a stepping stone on my path to a better career. It has given me good experience and growth to the working environment.

I had a great exposure to working in the retail sector which was an eye opening for me.

I was exposed to customer care relations through this experience of which I appreciated the most. I will mostly like enjoy going back the retail sector again.
