Working in the Deli at Woolworth's
Assistant (Strathpine) (Former Employee) – Strathpine QLD – 21 January 2019
My last 6 years with Woolworth's, I was working in the Deli as an Assistant, working days and nights and weekends. Working with Woolworths was very busy all work and no play. Following procedures and filling the shelves and displaying product neatly, making sure the price was displayed correctly, in between serving customers, as they were always short of staff or someone didn't turn up for there shift, was very demanding. Filling out safety checks, and doing temperature checks, making sure we're following the right policies and procedures. You would only see a Manager when the Higher Management were in the store or when they were going to call a staff meeting. No, you did see a Manager when you were called out the back to there office for one of the younger staff members not filling out the food safety book correctly and the older staff member would get the blame for. The hardest part of the job was keeping it clean and tidy, as the younger staff members untidy and the senior staff would get the blame because they were not trained properly right from when they were inducted. They don't even train them these days, they're thrown in the jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job is you make good friends with your workmates and customers when you can talk to them and meeting new customers.
Start time and a finish time. It's good the get paid. Customer Service is great, staff and customers.
Not the best of pay, but it's something. Long hours, We had to work weekends and a night..
