I enjoyed worj9at Woolworths and o love the fact that it does discriminate between people who are disabled from the able ones. We were working close with disabled people without any presure being put on them.

Pros

Free gifts and lunches sometimes

Cons

Short working hours

Extremely educational workplace

Woolworths is a great company for gaining overall experience however It may take you a long time to progress or grow into a higher position in the business but generally it is a well run company.

Pros

Staff discounts, bursaries

Cons

Little rate per hour and delayed internal vacancies

The company in itself is good enough and satisfying except some managers and I loved the customers and giving them a feel of pride as they shopped

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

Salary sucks

Working in woolworths operations is not easy, the salary people get paid in this department is horrendous. People in head office gets paid so much more. I don't know how its expected of operations staff to survive on their salary.

I don't understand

If I can get a job I will resign even tomorrow. The manegers are not friendly to staff and they talk to us as if we are kids and they even shout at us on front of the customers.

A Good LIfe Learning

I got lot of experience in my working period at Woolworths and I still regard it as one of the best retail store in the country, the most other thing I learned a lot aswell is Neatness and tidy is one of the principle, and one other thing is discipline Working for Woolworths is like working for a Military when it comes to discipline because punctuality is one of their main focus and like I said neatness, I cannot complain much about that job as I enjoyed working there but as a person you need to grow and say your goodbyes as you challenge yourself for other possible opportunities.

Pros

As staff you get 50% off when you purchase.

Cons

Not being allowed to have your cell phone on the floor
