"customers are always right". That is what I will definitely want use everytime I approach a customer and will treat them with honor and respect. Have a sense of humor towards them. Those are my intentions and to increase the level of my humanity. To gain more knowledge about business as a young adult I want to be inspired by working.

The culture of work is not emphasized, they lack consistency and there's no accountability in its management. You battle with a lot of shift blaming from all levels of management

Woolworths prioritizes their customers more then their staff,that is the hardest part of the job, you keep it moving, without expressing your feelings. The workplace culture is more about getting the job done and ensuring good service delivery.
