Work Experience Student (Former Employee) – Logan City QLD – 19 September 2018
Woolworths was an ok experience in some departments. Produce, Deli and Bakery were a beneficial advantage in a way of work experience. It was an experience that wont be forgotten but not in a good way.
I enjoy going to work at Woolworths Underwood as the atmosphere is pleasant to work in. We all work as a team even the manager, every one feels equal.

Shelving, Packing products (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 18 September 2018
I learned about Was the Brest way to stock goods on the shelves. The workplace culture was diverce and the other employees were very nice and welcoming. I think the hardest part of the job was standing up the whole time, other than that the job was manageable.
Produce Team Member (Current Employee) – Matraville NSW – 17 September 2018
To many under skilled individuals with no leadership Qualities as far as employment, the only thing that really seems to matter within this company is the bottom line and they put no time in to maintaining good quality personnel. there is a very high turn over culture of employees who are either passing through on the way to something else. I found working for Woolworths unconhesive.
yay! You've got a job
just a job filler whilst on the way to somewhere else!
Cashier (Casual) (Former Employee) – Victoria Point QLD – 12 September 2018
Working at Woolworths gives many people the opportunity to be flexible in their hours and days. This is very important to Uni and school students, this flexibility lets students work and study and still have a social life as they can pick their hours and days.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Gympie QLD – 6 September 2018
working at woolworths south was interesting, with pros like having 15 mins tea breaks and half and hour/1hour breaks which was great but there is more cons then pros. this includes being treated horribly constantly if you are not in like a ‘click’ of the managers golden circle. all the managers take advantage of smoke breaks, i believe something should be sorted out because their smoke breaks isn’t included in their actual breaks. for example if it gets really busy the manager isn’t even there to help because they are their ‘smoke break’ for who knows how long 10-50 mins.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Queensland – 1 September 2018
Working here at the first year was great, talking to the customers was fun until it became a mindless job where you get a handful of rude customers who put their anger and stress out on you. Even if you are the kindest and friendlist cashier, you will still get those people who get angry at you so don't expect much.
Management is decent, they tend to over work certain people and ask you to stay back for longer, so be careful you're not working too many shifts because it can become stressful. Roster changes are abrupt and I have had my shifts changed so many times without being informed at all. Management was decent, pay is great!
Standing 8 hours in a tiny as station is VERY debilitating, especially if you aren't lifting or bending down properly to carry things. ALWAYS take your time to ensure you are doing your job safely. You WILL regret it in the long run if you don't.
All in all, it's a GREAT job for young people who want to gain customer service skills and gain confidence in communicating. But anything long term can have an affect on your physical and mental health. So be smart :)
Free lunch, friendly staff
Long hours, people cancel shifts a lot, abrupt roster changes

A typical day at Woolworths involves interacting with customers frequently, and providing excellent customer service. when not serving customers there are a plethora of jobs that also need doing such at stock replenishment and face checking.
Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Maddington WA – 29 August 2018
Woolworths is a very good place to work. Lots of variety areas to choose from and good chance for promotion if wanted. Also in bakehouse there was opportunity for extra hours on occasions which was nice if looking for extra money
Crew member (Former Employee) – Bass Hill NSW – 23 August 2018
I would have to come in to work with a white top and black pants, after that workers would spread out and do what the manager assigned us to do, such as stacking, fixing shelves, going to the back and crushing boxes. Honestly didn’t learn much in a week that I didn’t already know. I enjoyed not staying in one spot for too long. Nothing about the job was hard.
