Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

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!

Sale assistant position

I would say to work in a work place is to gain access to the internet and phone and to learn more about the position and would say that lot of people would learn more from the work place and even the team as well and gain access at all the time

Flexi timers

In our area (burgersfort) flexi timers are not treated the same. There's lot of favourism when it comes to who must work enough hours. If the management has personal issues with you, you can work 15 hours per week. Perm posts also has eyes.

Working in retail is way more complicated than it seems

Working for Truworths has taught me a lot of things such as how a business operates and what is needed to be done to get maximum profits. Working in a small store helps me learn a lot more about customer service and how I can make their experience more appealing. It has helped me accumulate new skills that I can use in other working environments.
