Excellent growth

Edcon is a good company with good areas for growth, i came in as an HR Intern but they saw potential in me and pointed me as an HR Administrator 4 months contract. I am great full for the experience i have gained

Pros: great opportunity for learning

More than just buying experience

You learn a lot at Edcon. You really become hands on in Marketing and other fields outside of buying. There are plenty of systems that we use and assist in the buying process. Training is also readily available to all employees. The specialists are great mentors and are always helpful. However growth is slow if not at all. You could be an assistant for over 10 years without a shot at being a specialist buyer. The salary gap between specialists and assistants is also ridiculous. Even though you do work just as hard.

Pros: Experience
Cons: No growth

Edcon is been the best company to work for more learning lessons to make the best out of yourself

Daily routine working with customers on a daily basis and learning different customers behaviors. Typical day like when having big promotions customers will come in numbers and we have to ensure that they feel welcomed and happy. We get along very well with my co-workers,we normally work as a team so to reach set targeted goals,hard working and also dedicated employees Edcon taught me that a customer must be respected and treat them accordingly, because at the end of the day they are our bosses.Also taught me how to run a business irrespective of high and lows of our country's cash flow I enjoy being around customers listening to their different views, helping them to the best of my knowledge It's so very challenging when a customer is looking for something that was advertised on tv or magazine but when they get to the store it's not there, however we make means that they always get what they want.

Pros: Going for greener pastures and mostly willing to learn new things
Cons: Described as overtimes or going the extra miles for any given tasks to be finished before they breaks.e.g Promotions

Excellent learning curve

My work starts by looking at daily sales and then from there i look at emails from suppliers if theres any queries . I also print out various reports that relates to on time and late orders that still needs to come. I have an excellent working relationship with co workers. I have learnt from my job negotiating and dealing with suppliers that is relationship management. I enjoy building product ranges for customers and travelling as well. When not trading the inflexibility to cancel out of stock thats not trading due to supplier lead times.

Pros: Great opportunities for learning.
Cons: Job security
