The long hour shifts are draining. Retail jobs are fast paced. You spend less time with your family because of the long shifts. You need to work many years in order to see yourself grow
Pros
Staff benefits
Cons
Long hours

months ends are always busy being a till operator u must be very fast. its like you are 5 in one you work everywhere customer service must be excellent. understand customers able to listen to understand to be able to solve the problems acquire. learned that u treat the customers like their your family and you wont go wrong. know each department well for you not to waste time in finding things that customer wants. Problem solving must be very fast as u not the for one person, if u dont understand call the manager to assist.team work is very important without it u wont be able to achieve the goal of the day nor of the month. learn that going extra mile its very important not only for yourself but also for the company. having a difficult customer who doesn't want to understand the policy infrant of them. getting rewards( gift cards/ vouchers) for best customer service/ best selling of airtimes.

Growth is most certain, if well planned one could be part of Management in 2 years. Learn as much as you can and allow yourself to be taught through trainings offered by the company
Pros
Growth
Cons

You learn how to work with people on an daily basis. You an all rounder you work on the floor sometimes. You learn how to work as a team. You have great customer service. You always help where you can with the customers. You give the customers the best experience so that they have to come back for a next time. The hardest part is when you have to keep your head with your float when the shop is busy.

If only they can give us a steady salary then it would be nice. Everyone who is doing the same job and started at the same time working same hours but don't earn same salary.
Pros
Yes we used to get free lunches
Cons
Yes we worked long hours but it was your choice not forced

I would arrive at work and start dealing with customers from morning till the late in the evening. I learnt to bear in mind that customers are different and should not be treated any different to any other customer. The management of Woolworths is bureaucratic. They believe in team work and integrity. Having to assist various queries of various customers all at once. You gain recognition for your hardwork.
Pros
Recognition
Cons
Long hours
