Pick n Pay was fun. The pressure of customer orders being out on time and other bakery products to be top quality with all the magic that happens in the production line only challenges you to be on top of your game. Customer satisfaction is the reward for all the hard work that happens in any Bakery especially at Pick n Pay.
Pros
Subsidised Lunches and Transport
Cons
Stock take inside the walk-in freezer
