As I was working for Woolworths foods , I was welcomed well by the stuff and management . Honestly they never made me feel useless or any of some sort reason being that am a fast learner and I made sure I serve customers with my all be it my smile and being in a happy place . What I loved the most is that you get helped when you don't understand something concerning customers and what happens in the till. I enjoyed working with the stuff from Braken Gardens. They are the best.
Pros
Waste vouchers and easter eggs
Cons
Conducive working hours

Get to work in the morning start with hygiene because is very important to work in a clean environment. Fix the sales floor, collect float(cash) from the cash office to prepare before the shop opens. Working at Woolworths has helped me to interact with people, and broaden my skills such as communication, customer service, decision making, problem solving, interpersonal skills. The long hours was the hardest part of the job but with time you get used to and the best part was working in an environment where people's opinions are valued, respected and given opportunities.
Pros
Free clothes
Cons
Long hours
