Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

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 but very tiring workplace.

Truworths is a very busy place to work in depending on the area, the staff members are very nice but when it comes to paying entree level candidates or visual merchandisers they are exploited.

working with sales

it is a day by day work and i have learned a lot , things like house keeping, banking, machandise and stock take. and the management is good and the workplace culture is very good and hardest part about the job is when you are given less hours to work for the whole week and the most ejoyable part is when you are writing couses set for promotions.

It was fair

It’s good place to understand different people with different needs. Learning about different ways of dealing with people and learning about making service delivery your first priority.

Customer is always right

Customer is always right. This sounds stupid and unfair, but if you wanna succeed in retail you better start believing in this say. Keep a smile in your face at all time, try greeting all customers. Never argue with a customer regardless of who right or wrong, because customer is always right. Read magazines and regularly visit other competitive stores to keep yourself updated with latest fashion and trends

I didn't like the environment at all.

System were a bit outdated. It was difficult for me to adapt to the culture and outdated systems. weekends and late night stock-takes were very tiring.

Corporate is as corporate does

If you want to be a worker bee who is not allowed to be an individual then this is the place for you. The business clock watches your every move. The culture is poor as people gossip and talk behind your back and if you not gossiping then you are a target.

Pros

In a building

Cons

Don't trust staff, old school corporate, verkramp.
