First time working at pick n pay clothing was in the mall it was always busy and we were a lot staff members. I stayed for a year then I moved to a center closer to my place that's when I really enjoyed working for pick n pay. I worked with strong dedicated managers and I learned a lot from them. I wil always be grateful to them for everything they did for me.

It can be fun working there but gets challenging when new stock arrives. Also you're expected to put work before your family&health according to some managers, talking bout experience. You hardly ever off weekends so you hardly spend time with your family. So I think the managers and those above them needs to consider their employees
Pros
Viewing new stock arrival and putting aside for yourself
Cons
Long hours and to work weekends

A typical day at pick n pay clothing is challenging, as you have to deal with people from culture and morals. You have to maintain a mild temper even if a customer gets rude for no reason have to calm.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
You have to be nice to rude customers

Working there really thought me how to communicate with different types of people and being able to accommodate their needs in terms of the stores items. Our team was great because we managed to make everyday a productive one, while building a good and healthy relationship at the same time. My hardest part would be when we had quite a very busy day where more than enough customers asked for assistance in different departments. Enjoyable moments would be when we sat down and talk about the situations we faced during work hours.
Pros
Free tea and lunch
Cons
Long standing hours throughout your shift
