Productive, fun environment and hard working workplace.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The environment is good and the staff members are friendly and helpful. The problem is that there's a very high possibility you will work for many years without being a full time employee and the salary fluctuate depending on how management schedules you. Management personal changes frequently, so your performance goes unnoticed. Only full time staff and management personnel have financial security.

There were some activities that we had to participate on such as dressing up and have competitions on public holidays.

My overall working experience at Pick n Pay was fun and exciting every day I have learned a lot and built authentic relationship with people (customers). I have become a better person.

Pros

No free lunches

Cons

long shifts varies based on busyness of the store

Toxic work culture, too much politics

Very long hours of work. No personal family life, especially if you have a wife and kids, you hardly see your familiy. Effort is not being noticed by the big bosses , very ungrateful, some of the big bosses don't know how to treat people with respect, they look down on you

Pros

Good salary, incentives for senior management, medical aid

Cons

Very long hours, no personal life

Growth

Pick n Pay is good and nice company to work for. They have good working standards with good culture. It all depends on the location of the store and management. Management can sometimes give a bad picture of pick n pay to newlyweds. Pick n Pay also pay good salary compared to shoprite-checkers, spar and others

Fun workplace

You have to deal with different kind of customers, some are kind and some are difficult, you have to satisfy both. They are frequently changing the CEOs and each and every CEO come with his own plan and it is frustrating to the employees. We are understaffed, we have to multi-task. They are giving management pressure and management puts pressure on staff. Overall it is the great company

Pros

Affordable meal for lunch

Cons

You got paid by the hours worked.. Sometimes you work more hours sometimes only few hours.

Okay company to work for but very stressful and no family life.

Okay company to work for but upper management is very poor. Planning and structure could be better. Worked with very limited resources and man power, hence you have to get hands on and your own work is left incomplete.

Pros

Salary good with 13th bonus.

Cons

Long and stressful hours. No family life. Working with very limited resources and man power.
