They give you proper training through all the things done at work. The management is good and always motivating the staff about doing great work. The intergrity is what Woolworths is good at. Woolworths take responsibility to everything that concerns customers issues
Working for woolworths was great and if the retail industry was better paying it would have been a great company to work for but overall I enjoyed the whole experience.
Cheap food for stuff
Short hours so the salary was also short
Productive, fun, challenging and rewarding and gaining more knowledge about customer service and Woolworth ethics
Working at Woolworth was an experience of a life time. I learnt a lot during the time I worked there and about customer service and Woolworth different an work ethic, got to know more about food and beverage as I am a culinary chef. As consultant I helped with food paring and sometimes will also ask to shop with them and choosing grocery for a event maybe. So all in all I had a great experience with them.
Waste and free wifi and Woolworth can send you to school
This is a very good company to work for. The collaboration from the staff is really helpful and welcoming. The benefits are great including the discounts that we as the staff receive.
Free coffee and tea plus benefits are awesome
Well I enjoy working there because I gain experience in the business industry. As much as I feel the salary is not enough for me to reach my needs. But I really appreciate the opportunity I have at Woolworths.
i learnt how to self manage myself due to the trust i earnt from my leaders.Managers they never make you feel they superior than you and start disrespecting you.
we did get free time of lunches when one has done more than they are expected.
we are not overworked
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.
Less pay and to be dismissed if you get a discrepancy
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Fun place to work in,alot of growing opportunity within the company, sometimes you get free lunch if you hard and the store looks nice.they will also recognised you as a care champ for a month, you will get a certificate and and maybe a food voucher
Free lunch at times
Working very early in the morning
My typical day was always exciting with open door Management and Senior Management, and respectable and hard working staff. It was always a pleasure working for this company. My Line Manager was and energetic and fun loving individual, with an professional outlook within his department. This Business will change your whole outlook on Supply Chain (FMCG). Five star International known Company that's always first in and last out.
Included great home cooked meals, excellent and inspiring accredited workshops / training
24hr 365 day working schedule with off days (Not actually a con)
A typical work day at Woolworths would consists of meeting the morning the starting the work day. Then tea time after 10am for 15mins depending on your shift roaster.Then well work in a very good environment till lunch at about 12:30 for an half an hour till tea time at about 3pm for 15mins. up until 5:30pm till the end of the day there was always the option of working in extra hours after your shift has ended.
Lots of prizes to be won, free lunches from time to time
the typical day when none is interested in the product you had to sell
I enjoy making sure that everything is done accordingly on time. managing daily sales is enjoyable because you always have a target to achieve. time management, willingness and customer service are the key steps to achieve goals.
