Problematic administrative work as well as no growth within the company unless you fight for yourself

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

productive

learned how to deal with various customers, no two customers are the same. Everyday has different challenges which are good. You learn new things every day. Management at Woolworths are always willing to help staff grow and move up in levels. the most enjoyable part of working with customers, is learning different stories and always being able to interact with them.

Customer service 100%

I think it depends on a branch you work at and the kind of a mananger you have at that store other than that it is a good company to work for. There is a lot of growth experience.

I have learned so much about customer services and how to handle conflicts.

Working at Woolworths is challenging and a learning curve as well if you not lazy. The opportunities are endless you just need to focus at your goal and you will succeed. They make sure that you as an employee you learn as much, they equip you with all the knowledge necessary for you to go up the ladder.
