Thoroughly enjoyed my job at Woolworths Petrol. 1 of the best & longest jobs I’ve enjoyed. Highly recommend this company, great benefits & the people I had the privilege to work with made everyday feel as though I was working with family.
Long committed hours
I enjoyed my time at Woolworths, and I loved the people I worked with. I found that management was always very good
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.
All the staff and most of the customers.
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.
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.
Other colleagues that you work alongside, good opportunities to learn different department roles within the same store, Team benefits
Communication, Internal Systems need to be simplified further, not enough shifts, recognition
Great work/life balanceGet along well with managers (depending on type of person they are) Quite flexible with your availabilities Room for growth if you want it enough
Free lunches, discount on shop and petrol
Customers can be rude, standing all day (if not used to it)
If you want work and life balance with handsome salary/wages this is the place, respect as a employee, someone in management higher you can talk to, want to step up in your work life then go to woolworths.
Everything except some which you can easily ingone.
in all truth i feel like i wasnt getting the right amount of pay for the work i was doing & there for had to quit due to finacial hardship & family issues. having said that i think it was a good place to work the staff were nice & polite, easy to get along with.
great employees, great customers
not enough hours & every time i asked for more hours it seemed that my hours were being cut.
Great place to work, good teamwork, make a lot of mates. Good money. Only downside I found, was needing to work Saturday's. As a casual, maintain steady pick rate percentage, will be better off.
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.
Free Tea/coffee, employee benefits
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.
