This was a night position and suited my worklife balance at the time. It provided a complete insight in the Production Chain within a larger company like Woolworths. It was challenging yet rewarding as most of the time was spent working autonomously
Night Fill Team Member (Former Employee) – Ballina NSW – 6 June 2018
The work was very introverted as you'd expect as a night fill team member. You worked on your own, didn't really speak to anyone whilst working unless approached by a customer. Worked quietly and efficiently with as few nuances and mistakes as possible.
It's a lonely job for any extrovert but I'd recommend it to anyone without a rigid sleep schedule and who likes to work on their own with minimal communication with others.
Store Assistant (Current Employee) – Nowra NSW – 4 June 2018
I always enjoyed working because of the people and customers I come across. The hardest part of the job is to get sufficient working hours. Management is great as they do take care of the people who work.
Clerk/Service (Former Employee) – Cairns QLD – 30 May 2018
I was in charge of they then called country order which is now refined to pick and pack. I got shopping lists from various clients. Some lived on the island like Lizard Island. I shopped and packed it and a courier took it to the port to be delivered. I had to prioritise my work so that clients got their groceries when the barge was in. I occasionally had someone helping me. I also helped out at the checkout. Work ethics were good.
Bakery Assistant / Deli Hand (Former Employee) – Prahran VIC – 30 May 2018
A typical day involved cleaning out yesterdays stock, re-stocking, cleaning display units, price checking items, serving customers, cooking bakery items, and general cleaning and maintenance. The hourly rate was good on the weekends. Difficult culture.
Night filler (Former Employee) – Yamanto QLD – 27 May 2018
once you get a job its hard to get a contract but once they have you where they want you they are more reluctant to give more hours and management is too easy to get into they take less time testing to see how the managers handle the stress and take more time barking ridiculous orders and giving impossible tasks
head office. was much more relaxed than store level
CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGER (Current Employee) – Mullumbimby NSW – 26 May 2018
Woolworths is a great place to work, Head office in Sydney where I spent most of my time is a great place to be, Activity's everyday freedom to move around the buildings. Stores however is much different. you are more restricted to your daily tasks and not many activity's at all. In saying that the team spirit drives you in your day and our lovely customers.
Customer service (Current Employee) – Lake Haven NSW – 21 May 2018
Not a pleasant work environment, often go long periods of time without shifts as a casual and are called into work last minute and expected to be able to come in. Training was appalling and the staff are extremely rude. Break times are extremely short and poorly managed. Do not recommend working here.
Payroll officer (Store Service Officer) (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 20 May 2018
I am store service officer who has 4 team member working with me. I help store to reduce hours without impacting company goals. I have introduce system where i took over more of their evening routine in the morning. So evening staff do not have more work to do, they can finish in minimum time and it saves hours for the company.
Woolworths has introduced new payroll system. Before we use to have people planner and pay-mass which was very old system so to improve company's minimize paper work , use less hours , improve productivity they introduce KRONOS Workforce management system. I had training for new system then i provide training to my team member in proper way.
I like to work with Woolworths because you meet lots of new people and everyday there is different activities to do.
People are very friendly and co operative, really like to get along with them.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 20 May 2018
