  1. Not the best experience one can have

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Colruyt Group

    Pros

    Ample amounts of job opportunities, many locations, often close to home as a result. Employees are encouraged to get to know one another and work autonomously.

    Cons

    There are reasons why Colruyt products are so cheap, and it creates a very intense working atmosphere at Colruyt stores. Expectations for high amounts of turnover are expected, and the company is not above essentially working on commission for supermarkets.

  2. Suitable if you want to settle down. Not much to learn. Salary is good.

    I have been working at Colruyt Group full-time

    Pros

    Good salary
    For men, work life balance is good
    Can switch teams/technologies if working for more than an year
    Nice employee benefits like Sodexho, Medical insurance, annual and birthday gifts

    Cons

    Works on older technologies and not much options to learn new things. Even if learning, not much options to implement and practice.
    No work from home, so for married women it affects the work life balance
    No sabotical leave option
    Expected to work for more time (on the average around 9 hrs per day)

    Approves of CEO

    Former Employee - Senior Developer in Hyderābād (India)

    I worked at Colruyt Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hardly any Pros to mention about this company.

    Cons

    Worst Salary structured paid at industry level.
    Demand the compensation twice as you are going to experience real pain 1. with Management , 2. Pain of Working with Belgians who does' not allow you to think and work the way you want.
    Indian office in raheja is placed only such that lazy Belgians will send all work which is boring for them to execute. Belgians only trust Indians to do boring jobs which they don't wan't themselves to do.
    Those who join this company, You are selling your dignity for the peanuts that they offer you. You will see real hell working with some cheap Belgian colleagues and senseless management.
    Although 10 Seniors get fired under one manager, manager does' not get fired. No one sees managers fault (Blind senior management)
    Blind dreams of few managers who like there team development to expert positions with zero investments on trainings.
    Indian management is scared to counter Belgians even for there worst mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop calling yourself busy, we know you do more non-sense meetings.
    Focus on your cons. Page will not be enough to write everything.

    Former Employee - Bediende-verkoper-magazijnier in Asse, Flemish Brabant (Belgium)

    I worked at Colruyt Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ze beloven doorgroeimogelijkheden maar je kan aan geen enkel objectief examen deelnemen om je te bewijzen.
    Ze gebruiken je tot je fysiek niet meer in orde bent en dan hebben ze je niet meer nodig.
    Weinig loon voor veel fysiek werk en late uren.

    Cons

    Bijgevolg heb je geen motivatie meer en stap je desnoods zelf op.
    Je moet enkel goed kunnen ja-knikken en veel overuren kloppen en veel op zaterdag willen werken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blijf weg bij de Colruyt tenzij je een slechte rug wil en weinig loon.

    Be out from Belgium phobia, revise salary structure to benefit employees. Dnt think only for managers and above level.. think for general masses of employees.
