Good work place

To work in a retail is very exciting you learn alot of stuff for instance you learn how to communicate better...you can up your maths skills...learn about hygene which is part of house keeping and don't forget about your brightest smile.im a very talkative and friendly person so I won't have any doubt about me getting the job and I'm confident and loyal.

Pick n pay can make you grow your experience. But there is no money. There is free breakfast and lunch is cheap. This company gave me a lot of experience. Thanks to the employer

Pros

Free breakfast

Hard work with long hours

Great place to learn, but it is a very tough environment. Work is everything and family life normally suffers.If you need a fast paced environment where you need to think n your feet, this can be for your. It can be very stressful at times with very long hours. Career opportunities are available if you want to stay in retail.

No room for growth

The company has kept me going so far but you live from hand to mouth... Hours is horrible and they pay you way too little for the amount of effort you put in. I'm still a casual after 8 years of my life and there's hardly any room for growth. People leave and doesn't get replaced. People I trained got promoted. It's not about loving your job at the company anymore

Pros

Subsidised lunch

Cons

Long hours and no room to grow

The experience is determined by the manager. If they are good then your experience will be great if not count on dreading going to work.

In general, I appreciated the experience. The company is reputable and quality and great service is a high priority. I had a particularly bad experience, having worked overtime but I would usually only be paid for half of it. Then there was the matter of nepotism. When it came to selecting supervisors the proper channels weren't followed. Then again it wasn't the company's fault. But growth is possible when hard work is recognised for it's owner rather than passed off as someone else's.

Pros

Free lunch, reputable company

Cons

Incompetence by store manager

Great place to work at , fun and productive

Awkward and very long hours, hardly get weekends off. Management is always putting pressure on staff and would not embrace the company's values. There is so much room for growth and opportunities are always there. Employees are like family embracing the company's culture and showing empathy when serving customers everyday.
