Dedication is rewarded by means of internal promotion , one is granted an opportunity to grow with the company if they see that you have a potential and an ability, more over if they see that you are reliable and trustworthy.
Pros
Free tea, coffee and bread for tea break
Cons
If you work as a vte as i was, working hours are not a guarantee

Pick n Pay is a very good company to work for. They look after their staff by supplying free meals and transport especially when working late shifts. I think that their pay rate is fair for retail as well as their working hours/shifts. They also offer various benefits. Pick n Pay has a good friendly working atmosphere
Pros
Staff meals, benefits, fair salary, nice work environment, staff transport
Cons
Long hours

Stressfull enviroment, very fast working environment but staff members make this an amazing environment to work in.Personally believe that there are a few lower level employees that have been there for 10-15 years proves that they are a cating company to their employees and often award them.
Cons
Long hours (05:00 - 23:00 monday to sunday)
