Woolworths is a good brand.

Like any other company there are politics in the working environment caused solely by individuals. I think each manager needs to checked on once in a while even if it’s by a mystery shopper on their performance. Some have titles and no work ethic.

Productive and fun place to work

A typical day at work would be filling up stock making sure all sizes are available on the sales floor; and making sure that the new stock is on display. While giving customers first class customer service. What I learned? No matter what position you hold in the company it has importance. The hardest part of the job ...working over the festive season...(but that's when the retail business is at its peak ) Management was fair, accommodating and motivates you to move forward in the company work culture... the people was amazing and there was a balance of work and play the most enjoyable part of the job was induction the free meals and muffins

Pros

job security

Cons

retail hours

Fun to work in

Good place to work for and benefits are very good . Learned a lot from woolworths like how to make sales and dealing with difficult customers. The management is very king and understanding. Culture is good. The hardest part you get is dealing with difficult customers. The most enjoyable part is being on the floor serving those customers who are willing to be helped.

Pros

Staff benefits

Cons

Very long hours

Life balance is doable, they offer good hours. Salary is reasonable, advancement depend on your will to learn, strict management, culture above mine.

Woolworths is a fun filled and energetic store. It has great and friendly co-workers, a normal day at the store would be when there are few customers, you have to put in extra time into ensuring the cleanliness and neatness of the store at all times. I learnt that working and communicating really well with customers could work in your favor, because that could increase customers' choice of purchases. It is really hard working under extremely strict management that you end up feeling you are not liked by management, I have worked with people of different cultures outside of my own and I enjoyed it, because day by day I would get to learn their languages as per interest. The hardest part of the job would be not meeting store/sales requirements, because that puts more pressure on management which puts more pressure on employees. The most enjoyable part would be when having reached sale requirements and continues to be on that level, because when customers are happy, management is happy and that then leaves a positive spirit and energy among the employees.

Pros

We were provided with food from the store each and every Sunday and that counted in everyone's favor, because it helped most others save up transport money until we got paid.

Cons

When we had to work long hours with no notice prior and just leave whatever personal plans made.
