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

Working for Woolworths is the best because u can grow in the company. The benefits are extremely good. I like the fact that you are given an opportunity to study by offering u a bursary. I love the fact that Woolworths put their employees and customers first. Woolies employees deliver exceptional customer service because the company treats them fairly

I had fun working with woolworths. The working conditions were very good, the only problem was that we were not paid for overtime. I learnt a skill that I did not know before. I learnt how to wrap gifts, approach people and talk to them about the services offered.
Pros
Good conditions
Cons
After hours

This company is big and it's one of the leading retailer in the South African market. Opportunities of growth at lower or entry level is limited, opportunities are unfairly given to workers. Training and personal development opportunities are only offered to workers who have been in the company for longer even when there's new workers who are deserving.
Pros
Systems and work process are well planned out
Cons
Below living standard hourly pay rate.
