    I have been working at Azizia Panda full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere, friendly colleagues, flexible management, ambitious goals means this is a great place to work in the middle east, this is my first time in the region and I couldn't have been made more welcome.

    Cons

    Despite the company being very welcoming, if you are not familiar with working in the KSA life can be hard, particularly for westerners. Getting execution at store level is hard and can be frustrating if you're in support functions.

    Advice to Management

    Ownership at store level is affecting implementation of central initiatives and is affecting sales and profit, more training needs to take place at store level and more ownership through the operational hierarchy needs embedding.

    Former Employee - Management Trainee in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia)
    Former Employee - Management Trainee in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia)

    Pros

    very good experience to know more about retail and how to deal with merchandisers and customer to make the best price and best customer experience - " retail is detail " this sentence explained everything about panda and how they have a really good vision for every little detail
    i would say if you want to start your own business this would be the best experience for you

    Cons

    there is no clear path to learn you must learn everything yourself, as the management trainee supervisor told me " you take the horse to the water pool but you don't force it to drink "
    that was the worst excuse i ever heard for someone who don't know how to do his job, i resigned from the company after that speech and decide to use that knowledge to make my own business

    Advice to Management

    you must have a clear goals and must have some kind of rating system
    change the management trainee supervisor because he is busy attending new store opening while visiting the management trainees 3 times per year.
    and thank you for your concern in the first 3 months i lost allot of careers paths because i really liked this company but sadly you left us in the dark for a long time.
