Salary and benefits are good
The rumors around the retailers future has an overall negative effect on the staff moral.

I enjoyed the on the job learning.

The implementation of the Tipping Point project in general was a great learning in the importance of product lay out and merchandising in a retail environment.

Monthly conferences were helpful in understanding chain strategies and your role.

I was part of the optimization project and this enabled me to introduce optimized strategies in the cosmetic and jewelry departments for my division.

My Jewelry back office strategy was later introduced to the entire chain and is currently used in all stores.

Fun workplace
Daily cash ups I stressed if I should notice that my cash up doesn't but most of the time I balanced,I enjoyed working with customers and explaining everything they didn't understand,I enjoyed selling them services like funeral covers,account protection plan,etc,I have very good convincing skills,the hardest part was when they didn't put me on the schedule for the whole week as they sometimes will because I was a casual teller,the it was a bit hard on me because then the salary will be too little,but other than that I enjoyed working with my colleagues,I loved that we prayed every morning before work and afternoon when we knock off,the management was always helpful and considerate
Pros
Good management
Cons
Long hours

The productivity is always high. and during work time there is no fun time.
It sometimes get busy, but i can live with that because i love to work.

I have learned to work well with people as a team work.


The management is perfect, our managers shows us by example.


Co- workers are the best especially the one i work hand in hand with them.


The hardest part of the job is that i work as a casual.


I enjoy working, but is always difficult for me knowing that i am casual.
Pros
No free lanches

We work long hours once in a while, so no complain.

working environment where one learns a lot
A typical day at work would be rendering services to customers, making sure that they are satisfied and happy.

I have learnt to be responsible, to be productive, to be self-reliant, to be compliant to procedures of the company,how to interact with customers and also to work to reach a target.


The management was motivate and encouraging as we would receive supervision from them. They made it easy for us to work.


My co-workers were as driven with customer services.


The hardest part of the job was to see a customer unsatisfied.


The most enjoyable part of the job was expressing my passion in being able to help or assist the next person in store (customer).

i was working as a pay by claim it was only for Decemeber
i was working as a wrapper and at the shoe department it was only for December time,it was a pay by claim. i learned that the retail companies are not the same as the companies or government, Managements are different because each and every manager got his or her management style, we are only 3 in the same floor, its when we are working until late towards the Christmas time or when you meet a difficult customer, it when we meet a lot of people and they different in language, culture etc.
Pros
working short hours
Cons
short breaks

Well organised and skills development work place. Fun and good social organisation.
* Very challenging but with cutting edge thrill and possible resolutions to any situation.
* I learned that if you are dedicated at your work there will be always a room for improvement.

* Management is always helpful and have very useful systems in place to accomplish every day-to-day situations.

* I was always working with nice people and helpful in many ways.

* The hard part of the job was being unable to satisfy a customer due to stock shortage or unavailability of ranges.

* Enjoyable part of work was hosting fun and exciting fashion sales and launching new customer/ staff benefiting services.
Pros
Red Carpet Sales, Random 3 Day sales
Cons
None
