It was very pleasant working at Woolworths, it taught me to be patient with people. I loved my colleagues so much they made feel comfortable and taught me anything I did not know of in the workplace. Every day was productive because by the time I got home I was always tired. The managers were very strict and sometimes unfair but I cannot complain because I wanted the job. The culture of the workplace was enjoyable as well because we made a great team, although it was difficult when we had to put up new items when it was sale. The enjoyable part was seeing that I can manage my department and I knew how to handle my customers.
Pros
Free lunch on Christmas
Cons
Working on public holidays

When I came to work at Woolworth the staff was very friendly, felt like I was among friends, I enjoyed working there and the best part was that my shift ended at 14:00. The hardest part of the job was to work while there's a shortage of staff. What I learned was to increase my interpersonal skills in almost all realms which includes, verbal communication, listening skills, problem solving, decision making and negotiating.
Pros
starting and finishing shifts early
Cons
Do other peoples work

I was a temporal worker at Woolwoths and only worked by the food market. My duties were very simple, to make sure the fridges are kept full at all times. Every morning before the shop opened we used to clear out the spoilt items and replace with new fresh ones. The company takes pride in selling only the best quality foods,
