I am working there as a cashier.

I enjoy working at picknpay as a cashier and i am a fast learner... i was asked to hold for a frontline supervisor who went for leave.. my experience there has taught me many things how to deal with difficult customers how to treat customers. I am a well driven and determined lady i like to try new things and explore.

Hard working place

This is and environment for you to work and not make friends. You get to work with young and old so sometimes you could feel left out. The company has great benefits which you will end up enjoying in the long run.

Pros

Get cooked meals at work

Cons

long hours

Stressed out but fun place to work

As a cashier at pick n pay I was working under a whole lots of pressure you had to deal with different types of customers . The main thing we as cashiers had to focus on was customer service and always had a smile on your face. All pressure was on the cashiers especially the management team They always focused on us as frontline cashiers reason being we worked with customers n the money of the shop so all pressure in the whole of the store n focus was mostly on us

Pros

15min tea then a 1hour lunch then u get your last tea before the early shift leaves

Cons

Long hours 9am till 8pm

Shelf Packer

Typically I would walk onto the floor and check my shelves , then start by cleaning the shelves , then get stock from the back to pack. The important thing was to remember to arrange the shelf on the expiration date basis

Productive and fun workplace.

I had a lot of fun working with the people of Pick n Pay on both occasions that I had a holiday job there. The people were really nice, and management was approachable, which contributed to why I had no problem waking up and heading to work.

Cons

long hours

Good place to work for but no benefits

When i arrive at work in the morning,I always greet people and smile.then when i fetch my scanner and pallet jack u know its about to take off.When i pick i make sure i reach my target of 125 items per hour,that was my aim.The whole day it goes like that,so its quite a hectic working environment but i never complain at least when u are constantly busy,time passes quickly

Pros

Free coffee

Cons

Awkward working hours

Fun place bt they need 2 increase salary

everythng is okay besides the salary, its too little not enough for bread winner. Life is expensive nowadays and the salary is spent only on groceries and busfare then you wait for the next pay which is sad and stressful.

It's a good company to work for but it not a work for someone like me that wants to grow you don'have a future if you are working for pick n pay now

I love the type of work and the company(pick n pay) it's very organized for me compare to retails stores but I don't see myself working for pick n pay in the future interms of progression and growth there is no opportunities to grow in your work

Pros

That is one of the positive things that the company gives to the employees

Cons

One of the negative things of the company as a VTE working for pick n pay u don't get hours
