Good workplace

Very good workplace with good colleagues and good management. Management we’re understanding of personal events. But sometimes was difficult to get hours.

fun workplace

First ever job, was treated well. Would recommend this as a good starting job to anyone. You learn very quickly how to manage your time, you learn to manage people, you learn about life.

Good workplace

Good work life balance. Flexible shifts although sometimes management can pressure you to reduce your contract when running low on budget and all. Other than that, its good.

Good place to start

Pay is okay, good if yoi are starting off but better being casual then full time. Depends of what store you work at and what type of manager you have.

Not good

Not great at all used to be great now it’s all about the money at any cost. Staff thrown under the bus half the time we have no staff it’s just really bad.

Part timer

A quick summer part-timing while on uni break. Busy during weekends, there is some room to discuss with the supervisor if needed to change shifts on emergencies.

long hours and tough Worklife balance

It's a fun job if you have the right team, otherwise it's pretty tough. Anti social hours makes it hard to have any work life balance unfortunately. Starting salary packages are decent though

Very productive and good team work

Day to day tasks included cleaning, cooking, slicing meats and cheeses and helping customers. It was a good environment and friendly team. We had good regular customers who are a delight, but you'll always have rude ones too (which is tolerable). Team work is good, no one slacked off much. There will always be staff that gossip behind your back, but it's something you ignore and don't care about eventually. Other than that, it becomes very busy and stressful during festive seasons. But other days are so boring and quiet.

Busy and on the go

The workplace is nice but it gets really busy sometimes. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done especially during the closing time. Opening time is leas hectic

Not too bad

Supportive manager and fun team mates. Can be busy at times. Can be cross trained in other departments if requested. Fun to have as a side job while at uni.

Management determines how enjoyable the work is, unprofessional department manages playing favourite giving shifts to there friends and leaving the rest to dry.

Love coming to work

I enjoy the staff and ability to work in other departments. Have made great friends throughout my time here. Excellent job to have while at high school, and adjusted well once I reached university.

Great entry level start

Fun working with a teamLearn a lot about customer service in a fast-paced environmentHours not always ideal, lots of weekends and nights but that's to be expected

It was okay - the best part of working there was your co-workers.Management always cut hours meaning the workload was high with too few staff. Be prepared for customers to ask if the bread they watched a baker just take out of the oven, is baked fresh today.
