It is nice to work with people and helping others with their groceries...And it feels okay to help others and working all day to keep you busy..unlike staying at home and ending up stealing

The relationship between employees and supervisors is toxic. Agency placed employees get ill-treatment and less preference over permanent ones. Salaries are low to afford only the basic needs

I was working at Fruit and Veg section, when I start, I'd check what needs to be replenished, clean the environment... I learnt customer care services as I was dealing with customers everyday, met new people and mad friends. Management was alright and understanding, I always asked for late shifts (anytime from 9am till the store closes since transport was bad for me so supervisor/s complied). The hardest was when I had to get in the fridge that fridge was cold and I had a jacket which was always at work apart from the fridge part, I enjoyed everyday at my PnP.
Pros
Double pay on Public Holidays

I learnt a lot while I was working part time in Pick n Pay. Some of the things I learnt are being organized, friendly and being able to communicate with people.

You learn people skills ,flexibility, how to resolve disputes,you get to learn more about all other departments. They provide training and you get a 3weeks paid leave once you are permanent.

I can recommend someone to work for pick n pay it has good benefits but the salary is not enough to maintain everything. That's why I really need a new job for a better income. Crucial part is that when u need to grow in life you need to invest your self to big companies and learn a lot about the company.

A typical day at work would be when the store is empty.hardest part of the job is when the store is full and most of the stock is not available due to trucks being late.management was good in until they drop a bomb on you saying you gotta work overtime at the last minutes

it very nice to shop at pick n pay since it sellsgood quality food unlike it competitors in the retail market. it will be good if pick n pay could introduce home where we could buy clothes in Mabopane pick n pay. the section of bakery in Mabopane pick n pay does not reveal much of its cakes on display. going to shop for such things it difficult in mabopane.

customers are very rude and management have favours within staff and customers .employees are not valued at all. proper management and customer service training is needed. as the customers are also not happy with how things are done at this company and more special waterfront stores and it's customers.

Working at Pick n Pay was a good experience for me...more especially if you enjoy working with people and meeting new faces everyday as much as it can be difficult serving difficult customers but anyway you should have a way of making them feel free and comfortable...that is called customer service....
