It wasn't easy at all, and after that being paid R700 that doesn't cover all my expenses
Working at Spar was Fine at first but i was confused when they didn't tell us how much we will be paid as till packers until the month end came and i got paid R700, imagine, i had to pay rent and buy food, not to mention transport. It wasn't easy at all, and you'd stand from the morning till you go to your 1hour lunch than come back and stand till you knock off.

working at spar was a very success in life.Working hours were very fairy including the salary.I have learnt to be punctual because they were very strict on uniform and time that is working hours,learnt to work as a team n participating on every works tasks.Management was great they were operating through terms and conditions I have went through and signed before accepted job offer.Working conditions and culture were very successful.The hardest part of the job was working late shifts in term of transport during knock off time but I always survived had optional and alternative plans.The most enjoyable part of the job was the awards through you hard working and always get mine.sometimes we were sold goods at lower prices as we are employees

It is good to work there
Working at spar it is good but there is a lot of work.
There are difficulties in terms of shifts because sometimes you might not get a transport. Sometimes a cashier do a work that is suppose to be done by a cleaner.

The team had a good culture at Spar. Even though there is lots of negativety.
The owner never took care of his staff. In retail it's a team effort, we never could work as a unit.

Customer service is very important, good communication skills is a key of being a good cashier
Every day you work with different people, you have to be patient at all times, time management dedication, perseverance are very important characters.

Not very good with their staff
Too many two face people. No remorse for their people. Just plain out corrupt. No team work. Supervisors not supportive of cashiers. Supervisors and management has no voice in company. Only the shareholders decide what work for all. No benefits for their staff except uif. You only as good as the day you work. HR was not send for courses. Its just hand pick staff. Thy don't value the staff .
