It is a good company one could work for as it pays a reasonable salary and they also have incentives, medical aid and uif. The company you will get to meet new people sometimes well known sports personnel would come in the store and buy from you. Different customers on daily bases and you get to learn new things everyday.
Pros
Sporty, fun
Cons
Over time

This is retail, it was extremely taxing on mind and body. It requires a lot of energy. The head managers were not so nice and made working there undesirable. However it was good experience for engagement with management and other staff and customers.

a typical day at work on weekdays, one is always busy and always has something to do in terms of merchandising, etc and on weekends are very focused mostly on customers service as it is very busy especially in festive. I have a lot mostly about different product in different departments and how they work or used for. The hardest part of the job is not making the customers and management happy or when you make a mistake by giving the customer wrong information.
Pros
Free lunch at training and the experiential learning
Cons
long hours and hard labour

Like all companies, SWH has it's pros and cons. What stands out about them is that they give all the necessary tools for skills training, growth and development from flexible staff, through to management. And this allows for growth in the company. Throughout the year there are continuous product knowledge training, workshops, leadership and management training, skills training for specific departments and general in depth training in each and every aspect of the store. From cash desk, receiving, customer carex through all departments, running, cycling, swimming, exercise, outdoor, transports, apparel. It's a company that supports it's staff in it's development. The hours may be long, but it's not any worse than other retail companies.
Pros
Discounts, skills training, experience
Cons
Long hours

the workplace culture among the temps was cool but the management messed with the work place environment which led to me leaving and also there was no real place for growth. Lastly the seniors make you do all the work and there's not a thing you can do about it.
Pros
Not much other than the vibe created by others
Cons
lack of interest on the part of management
