I can recommend someone to work for pick n pay it has good benefits but the salary is not enough to maintain everything. That's why I really need a new job for a better income. Crucial part is that when u need to grow in life you need to invest your self to big companies and learn a lot about the company.

A typical day at work would be when the store is empty.hardest part of the job is when the store is full and most of the stock is not available due to trucks being late.management was good in until they drop a bomb on you saying you gotta work overtime at the last minutes

it very nice to shop at pick n pay since it sellsgood quality food unlike it competitors in the retail market. it will be good if pick n pay could introduce home where we could buy clothes in Mabopane pick n pay. the section of bakery in Mabopane pick n pay does not reveal much of its cakes on display. going to shop for such things it difficult in mabopane.

Working at Pick n Pay was a good experience for me...more especially if you enjoy working with people and meeting new faces everyday as much as it can be difficult serving difficult customers but anyway you should have a way of making them feel free and comfortable...that is called customer service....

Everyone is friendly and helpful. Very accommodating to new staff but very strict when it comes to rules for example staff doesn't use the door that is used by customers when they arrive at work they use the back door they use the front door when it's knock off time. Everyone is searched when they are knocking off.
