Pick N Pay Reviews


Good place to work at and has vibe

I am a hard worker and since I joined Pick n Pay I do know how it means to be a hard worker, I have learned so many things there. Now I know how to treat and help a customer and how to approach them. And even the managers that I work with they are very friendly and they give me the motivation to work hard and be like them, I am a big dreamer and I want to see my very successful, and things for myself and put bread on the table at home.

Pros: Excellent promotions
Cons: Lazy staff members

Dealing with customers can be difficult sometimes

One of the things that I have learned in this field is that even if you deliver services with a smile and humanity well when the customer is not in the mood with you, you can't push it. All that you have to do is keep on smiling and showing gratitude. Some days are good and some are bad but if you love what you do, you'll hang in there and carry on with your work.

Pros: When you reach 5 years in the company you become permanent
Cons: More income

I have learned to adapt to working as a team member and handling customers at all times

Having to work with customers, I believe in giving 100% customer services at all times, time management and ability to work under pressure, my job kept me at my feet at all times and to able to come up with new ideas every day, working long hours, therefore my caree life comes before my personal life, preparing meals for the deli counter and able to assist customers has become my passion, adhere to health and safety rules and regulations. Assisting the supervisor and being the team leader in my department its the skills I have achieved, works well with team members and management, willing to go an extra mile.

Pros: supervisor level
Cons: long working hours
