    Pros

    Steady job with an option for sudents to adjust their work schedule according to their university needs.

    Cons

    Simple and boring job. The company has a some weird demands like standing up throughout the shift. You can't take a break anytime you want, you have to ask for permition.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention on employees' needs.

    I have been working at Carrefour full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Carrefour offers a very dynamic, international work environment at its headquarters. Lots of interesting people to work with. It trains employees 2-3 times a year in languages, computer work, management, leadership. There's a lot of room for initiative, and people are project-oriented. Decent pay 60k€ for managers/80-120k€ for directors, international work and teams at Headquarters, good benefits. Opportunities to work around the world.

    Cons

    The company strives to earn money at any and all costs. Leadership continues to push the original models of business, when they really need to question what they offer and how they do business. They operate out of fear, and are ruthless and destructive, rather than working respectfully, for the mutual benefit of all share-holders. Sustainable efforts concern 2-3% of the business.

    Advice to Management

    The company has incredible ressources, wealth, knowledge and experience. It's lacking a healthy, generous conception of business. Embrace sustainability and short-circuit retail, and then harness the industrialized model to improve working conditions and local economies. Dare to change. Step into the 21st century!

    Pros

    Modern market daily operation, its dynamics situation from company's views how to fulfill what market want and how customer's view directly (mostly compare to competitors in terms of services, assortment, and price competitiveness)

    Cons

    Market is getting full with players create hight competitivenes. We need to be more aware how to tuch customers' heart so they became our loyal customers. Services became the main issue to attract customer since all competititors do low prices strategy.

    Advice to Management

    First suggest,"Strengthen company strategy, flexibility does need, but not to change it. Second," Do more regional strategy by focusing on geographic environmental bussines analysis inline with core company strategy. Third,"Strengthen the function of Human Resourcess. HR need to implement HRIS asap to increase their support to company strategy.
