Growth

Pick n Pay is good and nice company to work for. They have good working standards with good culture. It all depends on the location of the store and management. Management can sometimes give a bad picture of pick n pay to newlyweds. Pick n Pay also pay good salary compared to shoprite-checkers, spar and others

Unpleasant work atmosphere

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

Great company to work for

Because they have a big number of stuff you need to know what brought you there and be customer minded, friendly and give them your full attention and always wear a smile.

bad leadership

my experience here is no communication no acknowledgment of any ideas or achievements and no HR to assist in your queries,you must at times run the entire store with skeleton staff and I also get involved in departments but no gratitude for that just ignored by owners and franchise owners

Pros

none

Cons

none
