    I worked at NTUC Fairprice part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly, nice, enjoyable, convenient, attractive, happy, joyful, incredible, interesting, captivating, communicative, responsible, funny. I will take this job over any other job if given a choice between something I do not like and this very very progressive job. There was a time when I did not enjoy the work but it was a brief fleeting moment that disappeared.

    Cons

    Busy but it is also not entirely so. Yet it could be depending on what you are actually doing. So everything boils down to something that is not exactly explainable.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    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

    Advice to Management

    Consider an in-house career advisor

    Pros

    It is the remaining few companies that offers Job Stability and in recent years the management has opened up more opportunities for its staff for Growth.

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

    Pros

    This job is almost like any other retail jobs that requires you to interact with customers and to check out their items for them. Those who are looking for new experiences can try it out.

    Cons

    Those whose physical health which cannot sustain long standing during work hours might not be suitable as this job requires you to stand for long hours. During peak hours, you might not even have time to take a breather.
