I loved working at WW and was proud to say that I was a Woolies employee. I loved the brand loved their business ethics. Excellent benefits - Staff discounts. They have a culture that encourages growth. Hardwork is recognised. If you like change, there is room within the company to change. You can request a 3 month secondment to see if you would like a particular role
Pros
Great staff benefits
Cons
Not really any

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

For the amount of work you do the salary is not enough compared to other companies the workload gets more but there is no difference in your salary each month

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

Its a good working environment. Depending on the department you're working for, its pretty flexible to structure your working hours. Office hours is fro 9 till 4, as long as task and duties are completed in a efficient and effective way.

The office is very convenient with so many amenities available such as food shop, daily lunch, easy coffee access, access to working kitchen, hairdresser, printing services, discounted clothing store.

Working for Woolworths is very nice because of the benefits they offer you and you won’t get it at any other job.
But the hardest part of my job is trying to satisfy a difficult customer
