Stable, happy culture

Stable, happy culture. When we worked, we were serious, but excited about our goals. We had lots of launches from the garment industry and the marketing launches of Truworths which was fun!

Productive high level of professionalism and fun to work there

Productive, high level of professionalism, you grow as an individual and become a better person, it's fun to work there, I don't regret that I ever work at Truworths, yes there will always be issues in any company, such as meeting people where you don't see eye to eye but at the end of the day you focus on what brought you there, and focus on growing yourself

Pros

No free lunches

Cons

Flexible hours

Cold and stiff

Was a terrible environment to work in . The manager was awful , rude and pretentious . The store also refuses to put up cameras and sensors and blames staff for what gets stolen because of their poor preparation and will make employees sign written warnings for their short falls.

Pros

None

Cons

Productive

It is a good feeling working at truworths you just need to be alert, active/enthusiasm, committed and willing to learn and work as a team. I learned a lot from truworths especially when it comes to customer service it's very important though I feel the company should be more considerate for flexy workers salary and when giving permanent post. People work 10 years without being promoted it is frustrating

Pros

Free lunches and incentives

Cons

Being flexy worker for a long time

Challenging, grooming and fun work place

I've learned how to work with people and understanding the retail department. To work under pressure by multi tasking while the store its busy. To earn incentives by opening accounts for customers. Learning more about on how to place shoes on it's deaprtment. I enjoyed doing stock taking and even to team work so that our work doesn't delay. Learning to help customers when looking for outfits. At cash desk, I've learned how to sell,payment of a customer's account,exchange, returns,damages,placing an order and updating customers information on the system. I've learned how to do dropping off money. Keeping my employment number to myself. Tp always be humble and vigilant.

Pros

Incentives

Cons

Medium and short hours

Stressful environment with no support from management.

Instead of management supporting you, they tend to bring you down. Opportunities for growth are at a minimum. When you're consistent and work hard, you still don't feel noticed. The moment you want to leave, they open up their eyes.

Pros

Clients were the best part of the job.

Cons

Long hours. No work/life balance.

Productive and learning

It is nice to work for this company, you learn alot which helps you to become an expert of any job description. But if you're not permanent like me the money is too low.

Cons

Short hours

Yes they do have them fun days, we call it ACE

It’s been a great journey, I’ve met with amazing supervisors and colleagues but the salary is not enough for the hours we working on. Other than that it’s a great experience, you don’t work under pressure unless it’s month end.

Pros

No they do not give out free launches

Cons

Very long hours. Sometimes you might not get transport if you traveling by taxi

Cross trained sales consultant

Nice work environment, store manager are very strict as they need to guard against stock loss. If you want to grow, you need to drive your own development, the stores generally have a lot of politics between employees however you just need to turn a blind eye and you will be perfectly fine.

Pros

Over-time was good

Cons

Long hours

Great beginner phase employment. Branches differ

My experience at truworths was amazing I got to work with people from different backgrounds and of different age groups. I learnt a lot about myself because that is where I discovered my attention for detail since it was my first job. I also gained experience from patient co-workers who were willing to teach me about my work everyday but unfortunately that was not consistent and there was a lot of shifting in positions and mostly management and there was really a lack of follow-ups on employee's progression. Towards the end of my work career there was a lot of inconvenience, deadlines not met, work kept growing for the same people all the time. Overall my experience at truworths was unforgettable because I met and assisted and advised people everyday on fashion, which I loved.

Pros

They understood me

Cons

Time management skills
