Pick n Pay is a very good company to work for. They look after their staff by supplying free meals and transport especially when working late shifts. I think that their pay rate is fair for retail as well as their working hours/shifts. They also offer various benefits. Pick n Pay has a good friendly working atmosphere
Pros
Staff meals, benefits, fair salary, nice work environment, staff transport
Cons
Long hours
