It was a blast working there.

It was really nice working for TFG. Got a lot of experience there in the time I've worked for them. Keep up the good work wish I could have still been working there but due to circumstances and family related issues I had to let go, but I still wish to work there

Long hours and unfair management

One will work more hours than initially scheduled and sometimes not even get paid for them. I was once told by the manager that I didn’t have any leave days after working for 9 months and I only took 1 day off because I was writing an exam. The management has serious unfairness problems and there’s favouritism in the work place. Wouldn’t recommend retail unless you ready to let go of your social life too

Cons

Long hours, no social life and unfair management

Good company to work for

It is a good company to work for even though it is fast-paced but they are very understanding, especially my line manager. Onboarding was thoroughly done.

Nah.....zero stars from me

Zero stars from me shame. I don't recommend, well if you don't care about your mental health then you can apply to work for this company other than that, stay away. The management is whack if you ask me, those one's will let you work the whole month and don't pay you your salary.

Favoritism over everything.

It's great in the begging, there are some amazing mangers whom you can learn a lot from and then, there's those who are lazy bosses. I wouldn't recommend anyone who can't stand up for themselves to apply here.

Pros

Bucket hours

Cons

Long hours, no weekends off, can't make plans cause schedules change every second day, short staff, average incentives for hard work.

foschini was always fun workplace to dress up when there is special occusions excample : valentines day.Productive was foschini top quality

clock in on system in the morning going to tearoom to give targets and how previous day went. I learned alot at foschini how to communicate to customers to drive sales and how to trust your co workers. The hardest part for me in foschini was you get backstabbers and honest co workers who will always support you.The workplace enviroment is always good cause become a family at the end of the day.I really liked working at Foschini and would really have it back again if i get that oppertunity.

Pros

always got free lunches when we reached target and rewards cards and opening of new accounts.

Cons

we did not have such long hours to work

Pros

Cons

Company does not value staff

Productive and fast paced work place

I can't say working at the company is all bad as I have been able to advance decently within my time employed there, top management will always prioritize the well being of its employees so job security is pretty good
