don't bother

not worth the stress. pay is okay on it's face but you won't be given enough hours for it to add up anyway so it doesn't matter. culture is terrible, bad communication between departments, management is useless allllll the way up the line. half the people in charge don't understand the work that the people below them are doing because they've never done it, so the way they manage them makes no sense and frustrates the workers. constant cuts to hours, budgets etc. no help from higher management when it comes to things stores need (i.e. needing more trolleys - they never get fixed or ordered)


free food in the break room, the everyday rewards extras are pretty okay, pay isn't terrible


not very flexible, bad management, bad communication

Don’t do it

What is the best part of working at the company?Sometime it’s pays the bills but you also gotta be happy as well What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The lack of hours to do the job

5+ years of misery

Toxic work environment. Favouritism. Not appreciated by upper management. Change of hours to cut costs and save on penalty rates. Mental health not taken into consideration.

Review for good co workers management were okay, not a lot else to say, casual rates are average and only few hours here and there they call you on the day when required

Meh place to work

When I started out at Woolworths, I really enjoyed it and was getting the shifts I asked for. However, there came a point were they did a massive hiring and I started getting less shifts until the point I only got 1 shift a week. As a student about to graduate high school, this is incredibly annoying. I think the reason they don’t give me many shifts anymore is because the people they hired, though around my age, most of them don’t do school and have much more availability than me. Also I am constantly asked to work on days I have said I was unavailable (I am a casual worker) and turning them down makes me look bad but I have too. Also there isn’t really any work culture, well at least from my view which kinda sucks. But ehh


The rewards card benefits, the casual pay rate


Long hours, shifts are limited, no work culture, expected stuff outside work hours (as casual)

pays the bills

not a terrible job but definitely not the best thing out either. Just so long as you make it work for you its a good time. Set clear boundaries, make the flexibility of trade work for yuor schedule and dont take on more than you're paid for.

Friendly team but never enough hours to get all the work done

We are always chronically understaffed in every department; so we have to do what we can with the hours available - customer service first priority so nightfill is often left till last. Everyone works hard but I think sometimes managers don't see that; as with any place. But the team is friendly; the work is easy enough; and the pay and benefits are adequate. So can't complain too much!

Good place

Fair payment as a casual worker and get paid weekly. You can work in different departments and learn more skills. They only hire if you're young. Good first job.

Low pay, some great coworkers. Management sometimes inflexible and sometimes flexible. Overall a good part time job but i can imagine full time being draining

good work place

Culture is the environment that surrounds us all the time. A workplace culture is the shared values, belief systems, attitudes and the set of assumptions that people in a workplace share. This is shaped by individual upbringing, social and cultural context. In a workplace, however, the leadership and the strategic organizational directions and management influence the workplace culture to a huge extent. A positive workplace culture improves teamwork, raises the morale, increases productivity and efficiency, and enhances retention of the workforce. Job satisfaction, collaboration, and work performance are all enhanced. And, most importantly, a positive workplace environment reduces stress in employees.

Good easy going job

Pros: - Easy going job with great colleagues and managers. (Your mileage may vary) - Good enough pay with casual loading and penalty rates for working nights.Cons: - Can be quite repetitive with some heavy lifting required. - Hours may not be enough for some but management were always willing to help or move you to different department!
