    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

    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.

    Cons

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

    Need to groom the Next Generation for Succession and re-look at the remuneration structure of the Lower Rank Staff.
