I would recommend working at this company to anyone because of the company culture and how diverse it is to the worker's. Very well maintained and you get soo much benefits as an employee, such as their waste sale and company discount very satisfying.
Pros
Free tea, coffee and milk
Cons
Difficult customers

They give you proper training through all the things done at work. The management is good and always motivating the staff about doing great work. The intergrity is what Woolworths is good at. Woolworths take responsibility to everything that concerns customers issues

Woolworths has good work ethics,look after their employees including employees family's, in a sense that should an employee pass away their kids education will be taken care of by Woolies, given a chance I would work for Woolworths again. I really enjoyed myself at Woolworths except for the days of Store visits and Store audits those are extremely stressful days
Pros
Good medical aid, good funeral benefits, growth opportunities given, waste, uniform discounts for management and W rewards for staff and management etc
Cons
Long hours some weekends where you are unable to attend family gatherings etc

Woolworths is one of the best retail companies I've worked for and I heard most people talking very positively about the company, most retail companies you don't get benefits like you do at woolies, another thing is if you get a good manager believe you me you'll enjoy going to work everyday.
Pros
Sales always first preference, waste shop, get rewarded for your performances
Cons
Long hours

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

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.

Its a great place to work at first but as time goes by the is no challenges and the management is biased. The is room for improvement but the salary is not enough to cover each ones needs.
