The managers harass you and expect you to work like a slave. If you don't take your lunch break by 13:00 you forfeit it. Managers attitudes towards staff does not promote healthy working environment instead you constantly feel stressed. The owner was verbally abusive (swearing staff).
Pros
None
Cons
Working on your feet. Not allowed to sit. The salary does not justify the workload

You need to find your feet quickly if you want to keep your job. The hours are very hectic. Allot off people working in the DC but for different agencies.

The company is one of the Best companies you can work for, they believed in the growth of their staff while keeping the Customer satisfied. On a normal day you'd start the day by making sure the store is Safety, Hygiene and merchandised standards are complied with before the store is opened, ensure that all security measures are in place. Then assist customers on the floor and the Point Of Sale. Receiving of stock and making sure all administrative work is done promptly. Weekly meetings where you motivate your staff and making sure your meet them half way should they be having any difficulties. Making schedules/ Kronor and making sure all staff members are paid accordingly. Pick n Pay is a diverse company where you have the luxury of working and meeting customers from all walks of life. The company gives you enough platform to learn team work and give you the opportunity grow as an individual. It's always hard to say Good Bey to a hard working staff member who has great potential of growing their career in the company.Seeing one of you subordinates grow in the company
Pros
growth
Cons
Long hours
