Working in Woolworths has been a very good and valuable life experience. I've met great people and become friends with many customers. Management was good. Always put customers first and then employees before themselves. Overall - good working experience.

The culture of work is not emphasized, they lack consistency and there's no accountability in its management. You battle with a lot of shift blaming from all levels of management

Woolworths prioritizes their customers more then their staff,that is the hardest part of the job, you keep it moving, without expressing your feelings. The workplace culture is more about getting the job done and ensuring good service delivery.

It was a bit of a challenge as I had to be on my feet the whole day, smiling and greeting customers throughout the day during a very busy time of year which was the festive season.

It is inspiring to know that I am free to give my input on the company day to day implementations, and the exciting part is that my team get motivated by the culture of recognition which is alive in the company.

Working at Woolworths helped me to work in a team and better understand the dynamics of the work place. It helped develop skills such as time management and organisational skills. The friendly and open culture of Woolworths helps integrate new employees well.

Woolworths is great company I love working with people and the environment that there give us it great but the way that they get rid of people without warning, it just doesn't give you the sense of job security. Your mistake can be big or small and you never even had a warning but the will get rid of you.
