    Pros

    Long term prospects and good personal development programs to advance your career. They offer an in house traineeship which is comprehensive and helps develops your skills in buying and planning.

    Cons

    The culture of the company has gone through several changes over the past few years and upper management has been plagued with frequent changes to board members which has led to inconsistent leadership and goal setting.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track to deliver what customers are seeking and don't rely too much on what the competition is doing. The head office team is very competent and should be rewarded more often

    Pros

    You get a store discount, you learn about products, you get the opportunity to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds

    Can be quite boring and not very stimulating. There are not any nice facilities for workers and people can be a bit snobby

    Advice to Management

    I have no direct advice to the management. Maybe just to provide nicer facilities and better conditions for the employees

    Pros

    - I was exceptionally blessed to start with a good manager.
    - I met lifelong friends there and really enjoyed my time.
    - The pay and breaks are amazing (unbeaten) and very flexible working hours
    - time off is easy
    - staff discount
    - mindless work - no need to learn the product depending what section you work at

    Cons

    - Bad managers make the whole experience terrible
    - silly red tape
    - high turnover in some departments

    Advice to Management

    - invest in your casuals and stop bullying
    (But the same with every workplace)
    - be nice to your staff because it really will reduce turnover and enhance productivity

  11. Horrible company structure
