Is a typical day at work when the volume is high, what I learned about the job is working hard, take responsibilities for what ever u face, when it comes to management must have friendly relationship with ur managers, the hardest part is when u work more than time u have been required, not having enough rest
The most enjoyable time is when the job has done n no mistakes and paying attention to deatila

Amazing company but management doesn't encourage growth as well as very messy process when having to resign and get your provident fund money as I had to always follow up with them weekly
Pros
Work experience as well as ethic
Cons
No growth within the company if you don't push for yourself

As a manager you have a lot of responsibilities and there is a lot of pressure to perform and meet deadlines. Woolworths provides excellent in house training for each and every department, no matter which department you will be placed in. Safety and security, hygiene and staff morale are the main focus of Woolworths for their staff and of course excellent customer service at all times. All in all, it was a great company to work for.

I think something must be done to deal with the following transport, entry level pay is low. Cost of living is very expensive so I think increase is needed.

Managers feel threatened by intelligent individuals and persecute those good enough rather than helping them up, that's really bad and one of major reasons staff members leave the company, though I really enjoyed myself while working there and would love to come back ONLY in management as you get to be respected better on that level
