Great staff and interaction with customers

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked in a store as a casual/flexi. As a flexi you do shift work and can range from different times depending on the schedule. The work itself was not much of a challenge but everyday something new could be learnt. The main downside was that you hardly get weekends of as a flexi unless asked for or in cases of emergency.Leave days were good, lunches were good, team building was proper and Christmas gifting as well. Alexander forbes retirement scheme was also included as a flexi and other few added benefits. Permanent employees have better hours and benefits.Overall wasn't a bad experience, however the way in which management co-ordinated and delegated tasks and functions could have been better.

Pros

Christmas gifting by the company

Cons

Long hours, Working almost every weekend.

Exciting and fun

No balance between work and lifestyle. Team and management are so amazing. Lastly you have to stay on your toes to reach expectations! Very exciting..

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

Everything

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.

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

The company valued work and home life balance, most of the time I will be able to go home still refreshed to do house chores, the salary and benefits were fair and market related, people which worked there for a long time are able to grow within the company, management is very supportive, they prioritize employees 's growth and team work encouraged with building activities,

Pros

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.

Run away

For a start off for students it is a good job but there is no growth. If you are good at something they will have you do it without paying you.. With regards to security procedures, theft and so on. At times or rather most times management would indirectly force you to do something you not comfortable with then make you sign things to cover them or else you'll get a warning. I do not recommend working there unless it's a start of job for a student

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.
