Productive and busy workplace

You have to be hard working and willing to work under pressure. Normally there are nine working hours and you have to be willing to work long hours. You have to be costumer friendly, willing to help costumers were necessary.

Pros

tips from customers

Cons

Long hours

No growth or promotions

There was no growth at pick n pay, and the store I was working for had untrained managers who don't know how to treat people. It's not good place work for.

I like working in pick n pay because we have lunch time and we work as a team no one is in charge to judge others we are one and same people as worke

The main reason is to help customers so that the business can achieve its goals and we as employees is to communicate with customers very nice and be attractive to them when talking about business so that they can feel that pick n pay is the best store amang them all.

Pros

Launch

Cons

Long hours
