I acquired various useful skills. A typical day at work is always busy and productive. The management is always willing to assist you whenever help is needed. The customers are friendly and always satisfied with the service. The workplace staff are very kind and helpful. They work well together as a team. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer leaves the store happy.

I enjoyed every single day I spent working for Edgar, management team was good and co-workers where like second family to me.I have learned a lot at Edgars, good communication skills, being problem solver, good listener and most of all a team player. Nothing was hard because I was open to learn new things every day.

* A typical day involved an extensive amount of staff and customer interaction. * I learned to balance staff relations and customer relations. * Management was extremely staff driven and developing and training staff was high priority. However, there was a lot of spoon feeding and working on own initiative was highly unlikely. * My co-workers were extremely supportive and friendly. Very supportive towards HR. * The hardest part of the job was not being able to use my own initiative. Every action had to be pre-approved. * The most enjoyable part of the job was all the in-store action with regard to promotions and sales.
Pros
Good Career prospects and secure working environment.
Cons
The retail industry demands long working hours, however, staff benefits are excellent.

Edgars was like a home to me, my co-workers eventually turned into friends and it was fun. The management was great and the workload was superb. I miss working in such environment, having to meet, see and help new people everyday. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with difficult customer but either way, I learned a lot from such people. I enjoyed every part of the job.

Job work / Life balance a problem, i.e. 2 Days off in a month. Salary and benefits quite low, particularly at lower levels. Too much workload caused by among others too much paper administration. Job security, management and culture need some serious improvement.
Pros
Performance based incentive
Cons
Too much paperwork

A typical day at work would see me interact with many customers and selling approximately 15 phones on a quiet day and up to 35 or more on a busy day. Certain customers would be difficult to work with but I overcame this with my excellent interpersonal skills. Management was supportive and understanding. The most enjoyable part of the job was reaching the weekly and monthly targets.
Pros
Commission
Cons
Awkward hours

Daily cash ups I stressed if I should notice that my cash up doesn't but most of the time I balanced,I enjoyed working with customers and explaining everything they didn't understand,I enjoyed selling them services like funeral covers,account protection plan,etc,I have very good convincing skills,the hardest part was when they didn't put me on the schedule for the whole week as they sometimes will because I was a casual teller,the it was a bit hard on me because then the salary will be too little,but other than that I enjoyed working with my colleagues,I loved that we prayed every morning before work and afternoon when we knock off,the management was always helpful and considerate
Pros
Good management
Cons
Long hours

It sometimes get busy, but i can live with that because i love to work. I have learned to work well with people as a team work. The management is perfect, our managers shows us by example. Co- workers are the best especially the one i work hand in hand with them. The hardest part of the job is that i work as a casual. I enjoy working, but is always difficult for me knowing that i am casual.
Pros
No free lanches
Cons
We work long hours once in a while, so no complain.
