    Some of the internal processes are still very old school (E.g: Manual data entry).

    Management can be very accommodating to meeting the needs of staff in intangible arrangements
    There is very little politics at the lower and mid-management levels
    Colleagues are generally very understanding and cooperative

    Cons

    Innovation and the push for it can be very slow
    The culture can be quite limiting for high achievers, especially for those with bold ideas

    Former Employee - Retail Assistant (Part-Time) in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at NTUC Fairprice

    Pros

    Friendly people - you get to work with middle-aged people who are generally more amiable.
    Trainings provided - Trainings are provided even for part-time staff.
    Positive working environment
    working schedule can be quite flexible for part-time staff (need discussion with supervisors)
    Get to meet alot of people within branch

    Cons

    Very busy during branch peak hours.
    Rather strict internal audits and inspections, failing which would receive warnings.
    short-handed at times and staff have to take up more than one role.
    Different branches have different styles of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set achieveable and more realistic targets for retail assistants to achieve.
    Although on-the-job training is provided, I do feel it is somewhat not adequate, perhaps the management should observe when part-time staff receive their trainings, you would be able to observe some areas that need improvement.
