Management doesn't assist with development and growth of staff. They promote they favorites, instead of people with potential. Race always plays a factor when comes to promotions.
Pros
Waste, buying food products on a low price
Cons
Poor leadership and long hours

Achieved goals. Due to a well planned team of managers . learnt in depth visual old school skills. Objectives and task the right way, the first time. Due to my in depth knowledge of my skills. I trained and upskilled new staff. Also staff that were struggling with their current work load. Achieved an NQF 3 SETA certificate in 2013. A Non accredited NQF 4 Management training within Woolworths. Please see CV for the complete training attended. The most enjoyable part of my job was my team. Along with my manager we stood strong and took the store through, revamps and new heights visually.
Pros
End year bouns. Team buildings staff parties on the spot award for a job well done
Cons
Long hours..around Xmas trading. And seasonal launches.

as a visual merchandiser i learnt new things everyday as we were the face of the store,i have learnt to deal with head harded customer,the hardest part of the job was when we launching,we get so busy and even forget that we have to eat,enjoyable part is when we dressing up the manniques and styling them however you think it will make sales and when you finally see that you did sell whatever you dressed you were getting recognation from your core workers
Pros

Cons
long hours

Normally my day starts at 9am and ends at 6pm but i work flexi hours so it dose not always stay the same. since i have started working here i have made so many friends and even family, the staff members are very friendly we work well together as a team. the hardest part of my job is when we have to launch a certain occasion that is big e.g.. Christmas, Easter, Mother's day etc. and we have so much to do in a short space of time. the part that i do enjoy though is that we get to work while listening to music, i love that you are allowed to put in some of you're creativity in you're work.
