It's a home

It's a very good company but lacks of good understanding management towards its staff.. I could not get the fairness I want as a staff member.. All in all is a place where you can call it home.. They provide staff with suitable work equipment and safety measures..

So life and good product

Busy environment, and i also learned a lot of good customer quality service, management is so lovely and excellent, the hardest part is when you don't get someone to re-leave you, to learned new things.

Fun workplace

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

pick n pay bought me much memories while i was working

I have no doubt of working at the pick n pay companies again.i learned alot while I was working at the pick n pay like to work as a team and not to to be doubtful to be on the given position because everywhere there was the leader of that position. The management was very good and everything was in order the hardest part at work was when the inspector arrived and the most enjoyable part of the job it was when the managers working with us in busy days because they showed us to bed free for communicate with them and to work as a team always.

Pros

sometimes but most when we were doing stock taking

Cons

yes on the most busy days like holidays

Productive and motivated working environment

A typical day my previous Job was a busy day which I enjoyed. I learned a lot at such as working as a team, motivating one another and being self motivated. The management I worked under was really disciplined and had good leadership skills. The hardest part of my job were the shifts we had to work and the most enjoyable part was the experience I was gaining and the challenges I encountered.

Pros

Flexi hours

Cons

Shifts

working condition

Working at Pick n Pay is very challenging especially working around different people with different cultures, the most part I like about working at pick n pay is when dealing with customers because I have learned that customers are KING and never argure with a customer. Working around a lot of woman is very hard because anything can happen anytime, always fighting over unreasonable stuff. The hardest part when being followed the whole day about getting the job done knowing exactly what u have to do, being shouted in front of the customers, dealing with rude customers. The most enjoyable part is when dealing with friendly customers, co-Worker who leave their personal stuff at home.

Pros

no free lunch only provide stuff with bread, tea for tea break

Cons

From 07H00 am until 04H00 pm, From 11H00 am until 08H00 pm
