Pick n pay is a great company that has a good opportunities,as long as you take it serious.

I worked at Pick n Pay as a Merchandiser,and I learned how to adress products in order and also how to lift,offload or handle a heavy products ,lastly to treat customers in a good way...I enjoyed working as a group because that's where I get to learn more from other colleagues.
