I enjoyed working at PEP. My manager was very friendly and full of energy. She motivated us every morning before opening the store. Working with customers taught me patience and understanding different personalities

Pep is the best company to work...

Pep offers the best working experience and takes care of its employees. It treats everyone with dignity and respect and has the incentives to offer, however favouritism is alive. You give your best shot growing the company but it will take you forever to grow in the company

No growth,hard work with little to none salary

Not a great place to work at. Long hours, no specific job description, no leadership skills from the management. No growth, You're expected to do everything, sometimes you'll be a security guard.

Pros

Staff discount

Cons

Long hours

Busy but good place to work at

There are lot of responsibilities but only few employees.The company looks after its staff.Not a place for lazy people.Managers are generally nice but are able to manage the workers productively

Stressful

Too much work, not enough money. No growth, you work as a p27 for years and years. Management has favorites and they scheduled you wherever they felt like it.

Pros

N/a

Cons

Long hours

Good culture but little growth opportunities

Working at the company was fun, there was no pressure felt, relaxed environment but there aren't enough growth opportunities in some departments and there is a lack in diversity when it comes to managerial roles.

Pros

Free goodies & Free Udemy courses for employees

Cons

Little growth opportunities

Workload is too much, with less people to do the job.

We work with few staff and the workload is too much. We dont have security guards or cleaners. Your told what to do and how to do it, uou dont't come up with your own ideas.

Collaborative and fun place to work

PEP is a very collaborative and great place to work. The organisation takes its culture very seriously and genuinely cares about its people. If you're looking for work life balance and consistency then PEP is your place to work. Though the salaries aren't great the bonus structure is very competitive.

Pros

Flaxible work hours - great work life balance

Cons

Low salaries

Bad management

I worked as a P27 and I would only work for one day in a week. There is no job stability, security and growth. It takes years for you to become a permanent employee

Pros

Year end functions

Cons

Small salary, no benefits

I thought it's a good n reliable working enviroment until I resigned 3 months ago and wait for my retirement funds until this day its the 4th month still nothing,I even regret for working here i would advice anyone who is to apply at PEP to ask about the possible measures to be taken if they fail to payout the money in time like they said its 3 months now am looking upto 5 months

Pros

fun

at Pep a day i will have a different task to do. maybe i will be doing a sock packing the whole day. the next day i will be doing a stock taking. then at the till when it busy because i was fast with helping customer since computer is my thing. i would also take calls for the manager. what i learn at Pep is that you have to be patience and always put a smile when serving a customer. and learn working with different people. and learn using computer for different thing except using Ms word. the work culture was that we had a very target profit that we have to meet, so by doing that we had to come with different strategy to make make come and buy at pep. but the hardest thing was that sometimes you had to do maybe three jobs at the same time. i enjoyed the job when it come to working at the till and get to learn different languages.

Pros

gift

Cons

overtimes
