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

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

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.

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

Funny

The managers still want to be bosses instead of leading the people. Its reckless and a bad experience we get. This make us to find it hard to love our Job. This make every black employee to think that Racism is still there. How can one work for you and you pay them R1500 as a salary? How on earth can you survive by that Salary??

Pros

Overtimes payment

Cons

When working Long hours

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.

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.
