Productive and stressful

Being not appreciated is not nice , being not promoted cause of regionals not liking you is sad.Given the hours spent at work you can still be denied weekend off even the entitled leave can still be denied.

I was working for an agency under temp conditions.

I never enjoyed my time there at all. Hours, salary and environment was not to my liking and i took the opportunity for a secure income but i was only for 2-3 months with Shoprite moving from branch to branch.

The product was always filled up and the workplace was always clean

By working at shoprite it was nice and I was always enjoying I learned many things like how to use a till, and the manager was always giving me the different jobs like working in the till and work as a merchandise. It was always clean where I am working.The hardest part of the job was to counting stork,and the most enyoyablepartof the job was to win maybe as a chashier of the week.

Productive and healthy

The retail store is always full of people and expecially on weekends we have to work overtime but the good thing is that you get paid per hour at work so more hours is equal to more money in your pocket.

Pros

Workers can skip line when buying something for lunch.

Cons

Have to work standing until lock up time.

Working at Shoprite was really awesome

I was more independently and after doing my weekly routine then submit the report to my Manager. Helping with viability and negotiating lease agreements rentals. Because of working very smart I would absorb all the work pressure also because of the friendly environment.

Excellent Company

As Reginal manager daily work was centered around ensuring store standards, P&L, and general business plans were under control. The focus was as a retail group centered around maximizing sales and ensuring people were geared to achieve.
