I was a part timer so hours were all over the place, that was not too bad, but needed fulltime to be able to pay my bills so unfortunately I had to leave.
Pros
All the staff and most of the customers.
Cons
When not busy the time could drag.

Typical days at work (Front End), are serving 3-8 hours without banter or talking. Only interaction allowed is with the customers. I learned how to look busy whilst working at Woolworths doing menial tasks to otherwise avoid anything else. Management at Woolworths is exceptionally bad, the management is run by an older generation and have no idea how to increase rapport with customers or even make the work environment engaging for both staff and employees. Workplace culture is nonexistent considering a majority of employees clock on and eagerly await their clock off as they are casual/ part-time and have no care for others. The hardest part of the job is when Priority 1 is called multiple times, yet no help arrives due to terrible management and poor handling of the store, trying to maximise their profits by rostering the bare minimum. Additionally looking at the clock thinking an hour has passed by but when you have to check it, it has moved 3 minutes, is one of the hardest parts of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job is engaging with the customer and allowing them to vent about frustrations about the store and how it is always packed and the other friendly staff members who understand the pains of bad management.
Pros
10% Discount
Cons
No work life, No Friends, No reason to continue working, no desire to come in to work, High Employee Turnover, Self-Serve can replace Front End Jobs, no Job Security, Minimal benefits

If you answered yes to all three of my questions, then supermarket retail would be an employment opportunity to consider. If you have a nack for putting customers first always and willing to go the extra mile on each and every shift then you should create a career profile on the Woolworths career website. To stand out from the rest, personally hand deliver a copy of you resume with you Woolworths career profile number to the Woolworths store you have applied for and introduce your self.Having good rapport with employees at your local store is a great thing as well and let those contacts know that you have applied for a role.
Pros
Other colleagues that you work alongside, good opportunities to learn different department roles within the same store, Team benefits
Cons
Communication, Internal Systems need to be simplified further, not enough shifts, recognition

Woolworths are pretty good to work for. If you are looking for advancement opportunities don’t get too excited it’s quite difficult to move form casual up to anything close to full time.
Pros
Pay is always in on time
Cons
Hard to advance

Every day at work in a retail store is typically hectic and fast-paced. It helps learn how to manage tasks, importance of team work and customer satisfaction. The team is always willing to help and the management is super supportive. The most difficult part of this job being long standing hours and physical stress. The most satisfying part of this job would mainly be no mental stress and customer satisfaction.
Pros
Free Tea/coffee, employee benefits
Cons
Long standing hours, Physical exertion

Management was 50/50; either great or lacklustre. Pay isn't enough to live off of out of home if you are too young for the 'adult' pay (I'm 19 and not considered eligible to be paid as an adult) Staff are generally great, never have an issue.
Pros
Cool Staff
Cons
Underpaid & Undervalued

Woolworths uses flexible work space and you can work from home and your hours can be flexible to fit into your home life. The atmosphere hence is fairly relaxed although competitive.

Good first job, not enough pay to make any sort of living, unless you are a manager or department manager and earn a proper salary wage. Minimum wage otherwise,
