It's a quagmire whereby the issue of salaries is concerned,worked hours are being thrown into the dustbin every month.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
No respect of employee rights The company doesn't fairly pay over time as prescribed by the law. Every month employees get worried because they are not paid some of their hours. It has become habitual and idiocycratical to throw away some of employees hours into the bin.

I gained customer service, punctuality, time management, problem solving skills and good communication skills, transaction management and payments

At Spar everyone have treated with respect with the good understanding of different cultures and traditions. I really enjoyed working with customers. There difficult part came when I had to handle a difficult customer but I should always be calm and focused to cash management because I can't have money shortage. I learned that the customer is the first priority in the business. I managed transactions and payments.

Pros

No

Cons

Yes

Not the best place to work

Salary could be better. Work life balance is poor. Apply and work here if it's your do or die and you have no where else to go. However, if your situation is not desperate, there are much better options elsewhere.

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere

Cons

Long hours

The spar products are good also not dangerous to the staff ..I would enjoy to be one of the workers at spar

It's not easy but if yu know what you want you will make sure that you do your job properly also make sure that you communicate well with customers even if the customer is wrong but try to lower your voice becouse in the end the customers are always right thats what I learned working in retail store otherwise it's so good to work in any of retail stores.

Pros

There are no free lunches unless there's special occasions such as store birthdays etc.

Cons

The are also long hours but we get payed for them

Professionalism, being friendly, productive & efficient is vital, as you represent the Spar brand. Great experience.

Spar is a great retail company to work for. The hours can be exhausting , but if the renumeration/ salary is good it's worth it. I highly recommend working at Spar, as it's one of the retail stores which prides itself on quality goods & service.

Pros

The owner of the franchise I worked for, was extremely kind.

Cons

Long hours. Always busy. Retail is fast paced.
