The learning has been great, but growth is limited.

The company is a great place to start to learn about the nature of Retail, while instilling high performance drive in employees. However, the lack of growth opportunities, and lack of incentives for staff sucks the passion out of employees.

Pros: Great pressure and work ethic developed.
Cons: Long hours with no overtime pay. No growth opportunities because of the restructures over the past few years.

Excellent training

I have learnt alot but as for salary wise im not happy I love working with my colleagues as we support each other. I love learning everyday and seeing different people, experimenting with new customers. If you give your customers good gratitude u will never go wrongly. Acknowledging all customers in a good way helps the company to gain lot of loyalty in customers

Pros: I would love to be a manager
Cons: 8hrs daily

I've learned more experiance,and how to care about our customers and i thankful because now i know my experiance .. I enjoy working as a team and respect others and provide experiance to each other as a team.
