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

Excellent learning curve

This is a truly great company. The culture is very open and very results oriented. This growing company requires a high degree of initiative from its managers and bases its decisions on performance.

Pros: Great opportunities for promotion
Cons: Long hours on festive season

Good foundation

overall it was a great experience, the culture is good. the relaxed atmosphere allows for great relationships with co-workers and management, but the opportunities are few and they don't harvest potential.

Pros: relaxed culture, great place to work
Cons: promotion opportunities few
