Wellness Warehouse is a place where one can invest in their development in the industry and learn as much as possible about the field. Very compatible salary range also.
I highly recommend making sure you speak to others about working in the retail environment before taking on this position. The hours are very long (can often amount to 10-11 hours on your feet, in the shop per day, including every alternate weekend) and there is a lot of tedious work to do, such as constantly counting hundreds of small items of stock, checking expiry dates on each product, cleaning the shop etc. It is also quite difficult to take leave for important events and you will be working throughout the holiday season, including Christmas and new years. It is difficult to balance work life and personal life in this position, as you often will finish after 7pm and work full-days on weekends. You are physically exhausted at the end of each shift, since you're on your feet and constantly walking, cleaning, bending, lifting etc. Most of my colleagues were physically and mentally fatigued when I was working there. The employee turn-over is also quite high - many employees leave within a month or two of working there due to burnout. The training was very interesting and thorough - we got treated to amazing food and got lots of free samples of health products. The amount of health-consulting done is minimal compared to the amount of shop-cleaning and stock-counting done. Consider this a stepping stone position and not ideal for anyone with strong interpersonal commitments.
You learn new things everyday with regards to products and what they do in the body. A typical day at work differs with the position, as a health consultant, I interact with customers and assist them on their various health needs, I unpack boxes, pack stock and manage customer orders. Banking, cashing up and contacting suppliers for fresh orders are part of the duties carried out in store by responsible individuals. The environment keeps one healthy because you tend to know more about health and start practising living well. The trainings equip us with necessary knowledge. The hardest part of the day is close to nil. It is great when the store is busy, keeps one on their toes and pushing to beat targets.
In the 9 months I've learned alot about the company. I've learn about deadlines and how to work accurately. I've learned how to be a good picker and packer. And to wrap the glass bottles.
Boss interacts with workers on a regular bases.
No security cameras in case stock goes missing or been opened by workers.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Company growing well, a lot of changes in a short amount of time. Loads of change management needed. Management is supportive but deadlines are deadlines. Challenges include low experience skills base within existing staff compliment. Therefore, experienced employees are leaned on to make additional contributions.
Fun and vibrant work place, that allowed me to learn more and grow in the company. The atmosphere of the store is very welcoming even for customers. I very much enjoyed working at wellness warehouse store, I had a great learning experience as well as a good relationship with my coleagues.
Allow one to grown in the company
when I arrived at work I clean my section and also open my till point cleaning the tables so that the customers can sit in a clean table. I have leant more about gluten free products, banting product and also leant more about customer service. The management is good and understanding, the work place is good getting to know people and different attitudes of customers is the hardest part of my job but I take that as a challenge. The most enjoyable part of my job is advertise wellness warehouse to the customers
No free lunches
no long hours
I started working as a PPA and then moved to a branch closer to home where I have learnt so much about the body and health. I am currently doing Store Admin, but I always keep myself busy by helping customers, to merchandising. I love my colleagues, we make a good team. The hardest part for me is working with lazy people-that I cannot tolerate. I enjoy the interaction between myself and customers, helping them with the health issues.
My day at wellness is Very productive , I have to keep clients happy so always have to be on time and accurate . I have learned that when you keep the customer happy you will always get positive feedback and this way they advertise the company in a positive manner . Management is the best if you give your best and do your work and exceed in all expectations.The culture is diverse there is staff of all walks of live age gender and culture. The hardest part of the job is to accomadate everyone. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the clients smiles on there faces when they realized they received excellent service.
My friend works for wellness and I was shocked to learn the company does not give bonuses the salary that is given is so little and still no bonus is giving for Xmas time.how does the company expect to prosper if they don't reward their staff.

I am a sales assistant/beauty consultant at wellness warehouse my tasks are as followed I assist customers replenish,merchandise sent stock to other stores assist at the till point & help the health advisors where I can. The time I spent with Wellness was a major learning curve as I took a risk entering the health store field and I soared even higher then my imagination as I love learning new things was entering my path every day and I enjoyed every opportunity. I got promoted from ppa (pay point assistant) to sales assistant in 8 months learned a great deal bout the skin and organic skin care. Management is friendly helpful and understanding more family like than boss like. My team mates are diverse crazy caring and special each fitting in to the wellness puzzle. The hardest part of my job is to see a customer upset or unsatisfied. Meeting wonderful people and learning bout products and there functions.
getting free beauty products.
long hours and traviling home with the train late
