- receiving positive customer feedback is satisfying - being able to work in a positive environment, surrounded by positive co-workers - learnt excellent customer service skills - lack of communication skills between management at times - it is often difficult to deal with aggressive or angry customers

Good job if you’re just out of school.

Good casual job, work over 40 hour weeks during events like easter, christmas and eofy. They cut hours, however and management definitely have favourites. Good for just out of school or sick of the 9-5 office job, if you want flexibility, Big W is great. You make great friends and get a good experience with customers. Good and bad. Great extra money. Understanding when you need leave or have to change availabilities.

Pros

Good hours, make friends, great experience.

Cons

Management have favourites, some managers can’t handle stress and get cranky with everyone.

Very stressful

Managers expect so much from the staff. Not enough staff members every day and pay is very low for part time. So much work not enough staff to get the work done.

Good Experience

Had a good experience although it is not the right job for me. Met some nice people while learning how to deal with customers in the correct manner

It's fun place to work but when require you will be under the pressure

When you start the work the first thing you do is walking the store and if you identify a problem you`ll fix it straight away and if you need help you'll seek one, People are always willing to help you. there is team work involved and everything happens with short and longs plans.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Long Hours
