Pros

Working at Woolworth was an experience of a life time. I learnt a lot during the time I worked there and about customer service and Woolworth different an work ethic, got to know more about food and beverage as I am a culinary chef. As consultant I helped with food paring and sometimes will also ask to shop with them and choosing grocery for a event maybe. So all in all I had a great experience with them.
Pros
Waste and free wifi and Woolworth can send you to school
Cons
Salary

If you are looking for a good reference and experience i would recommend it.There is too much pressure especially when they are promitions and sale. You find that you are short staffed and the supervisors are on your neck about being quicker to keep the customers happy, knowing very well that if you make a mistake and get any discrepancies on your cash or get cloned cards you will be dismissed. Salary wise i think they can do better.
Pros
Staff discount
Cons
Less pay and to be dismissed if you get a discrepancy

My typical day was always exciting with open door Management and Senior Management, and respectable and hard working staff. It was always a pleasure working for this company. My Line Manager was and energetic and fun loving individual, with an professional outlook within his department. This Business will change your whole outlook on Supply Chain (FMCG). Five star International known Company that's always first in and last out.
Pros
Included great home cooked meals, excellent and inspiring accredited workshops / training
Cons
24hr 365 day working schedule with off days (Not actually a con)
