The company is top notch problem tends to be the rotation of management

When you bring new management (DM) try to let he/she to the working standards of the store and then they can make changes if it lacking and not productive unlike trying to change things right away putting pressure on the team and that leads to poor performance.

Pros

Team building

Cons

Reasonable flexible hours

Fruitful meeting customers each day and children it was fun I mean lots of fun the compliments that I would get daily for always smiling.

Woolworths stores was owesome only that I had to go because I wanted to finish my schooling then. I wish I could be hired back. There is a lot of growth. I like the fact that on my training I was told to take the store as my own store. There was time for hard work but every job has its hard and easy work times. I have improved a lot in my communication skills. I remember one of the customers I asked if I please assist. He replied and said only if you may help me find my wife. That was hilarious.

Pros

I would buy lunch on discount

Cons

Normal working hours

Fun and joyful to work at Woolies

I had worked for the company in 2016 and I had been suspended from work because of the till shortages I had.It is fun and challenging at the same time, because you have to calm yourself when you face a stressful client or customer.I work as a advisor and have done some back area work , exchanges and returns.

Pros

Tea time and waste shopping

Cons

Able to work long hours, weekends and holidays if possible.

Good company with benefits but management is always the worst nightmare

It's actually a nice company to work for, there's a room for development but it's a nightmare working under a black and colored management. You can easily get fired or disliked because you have potential to elevate from one position to another. This company doesn't retrench but you can easily get fired and mostly unfairly and there's not much you can do about it as management can plot your dismissal and get away with it. In overall this place taught me never to trust anyone at work even my own race. It's a good company with bad management choices!

Pros

Incentives quarterly

Cons

Long hours and bad management
