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)

Interacting with customers is one of the best thing I enjoy because you get to learn different things. They teach you how life is and how you handle it.

I loved working at WW and was proud to say that I was a Woolies employee. I loved the brand loved their business ethics. Excellent benefits - Staff discounts. They have a culture that encourages growth. Hardwork is recognised. If you like change, there is room within the company to change. You can request a 3 month secondment to see if you would like a particular role
Pros
Great staff benefits
Cons
Not really any
