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

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.

There is lots of department that you can get opportunities on it, only if you are willing to grow in the company.you must be a hard worker,and you have to love your job, and learn everyday,team work is very important .you must know your store so that you can be able to help if costomers need some item from the shelf.

The customer is always right. It's nice place to gain more experience, it's also the growing company, because other people started as the packing they end up as the managers. Sow the Woolworth company make you grow. I worked there for 6 since 2014 until 2019.

I work weekends, during week days i made sure i cover all my school work and study hard in order to be ahead and not lacking on my school performance .Typical what i have learnt during my job experience at store is to be independent and being constant and determined in all you do, What i mostly liked about the job is too meet different kind of customers with different cultures.The management at the store were so nice,positive and passionate, guiding and supportive, creative and inspiring to everyone in the store.Everyone in the store work collaboratively.The hardest part about my job is when you have to tell the customer whatever products she/he want is out of stock and you could see the customer desperate for it. Not nice at all. All in all i learnt a lot from working there was to be always be happy
Pros
Buying waste at a low price, that was awesome
Cons
Different shifts and long hours

I have Call Centre experience in sales and collections as an agent. Won monthly and quarterly awards. I've been working towards targets, there's no other way to earn good money and great motivation to push harder when business seems slow. I have Recruitment experience as well which is a target and quality of candidates driven environment. It's not about the product you are selling but how to pitch & sell the product. I will be great in your space.
