How I worked for Pick n Pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked as general work at any Pick n Pay store under the campany of Phangela. I enjoy working with this campany. Sometimes you don’t work at the same store every day. So I met different people every day. Transport was available each every day. I was fine with the salary.

You work quickly as you told, you work according given time, you free to take your lunch time. You must clock in and out on time, don't be late at work.

Pros

Carry your lunches

Cons

Few hours

Worst place

Nothing was interesting about working there. The owner would be sitting in the office every single day checking how people work. Supervisors and managers are the worst because they act as if it's their store and you work for them

Productive

I enjoyed the pick n pay company job, and I learned that Hard working is way more important than being loved at time of working, because due to the culture of that company is way more excellent in rate. So love them all but trust No one.

Toxic work culture, too much politics

Very long hours of work. No personal family life, especially if you have a wife and kids, you hardly see your familiy. Effort is not being noticed by the big bosses , very ungrateful, some of the big bosses don't know how to treat people with respect, they look down on you

Pros

Good salary, incentives for senior management, medical aid

Cons

Very long hours, no personal life

Good work place

To work in a retail is very exciting you learn alot of stuff for instance you learn how to communicate better...you can up your maths skills...learn about hygene which is part of house keeping and don't forget about your brightest smile.im a very talkative and friendly person so I won't have any doubt about me getting the job and I'm confident and loyal.

Productive and fun place

I worked as Packer mostly, I used to pack for a Cashier when its done scanning items and put all the items in the Bag for a Customer...When it's not busy, I used to go work on the floor and do back shopping, which is to replanish back the stock that the customer left by the tills and put it back in the right place...Also and to make sure every aisle is full of Stock with the right Price ticket.

Productive, fun environment and hard working workplace.

The environment is good and the staff members are friendly and helpful. The problem is that there's a very high possibility you will work for many years without being a full time employee and the salary fluctuate depending on how management schedules you. Management personal changes frequently, so your performance goes unnoticed. Only full time staff and management personnel have financial security.

Hard work with long hours

Great place to learn, but it is a very tough environment. Work is everything and family life normally suffers.If you need a fast paced environment where you need to think n your feet, this can be for your. It can be very stressful at times with very long hours. Career opportunities are available if you want to stay in retail.
