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

It was a very fun and enjoyable workplace and I enjoyed every single hour that I spent at Woolworths. Getting to the office and planning the day ahead was most enjoyable as it helped me to excel in time management and meeting deadlines. I learned a lot of things at Woolworths, leading the staff, reconciling the accounts, balancing financial reports, investigate shortages, reconciling payroll, stock management and ordering, managing the entire administration and etc. What made the place very fun to be was management and my co-workers because they were very supportive and hard workers. The part that I enjoyed the most was working with figures such as stock recon, investigating shortages or missing stock and reconciling financial reports.
