Currently the Operations Team Leader of Woolworths The Club Waterkloof. I oversee all Operations duties and Act as an Operations Manager, when my Operations Manager is on leave, My work has resulted in getting recognition for my Store Manager. The following are some of the competencies I offer: Strong managerial and oversight skills, I expertly direct a team of 10 employees, Security, Cleaners, Trolley Collectors and My Operations Assistant. Due to the varying set of skills of the staff and level of professional expertise, I work with each group to promote their strengths and provide opportunities to learn and grow. With a comprehensive operations background I have revised shift schedules to have a strong team on a daily base, successfully operations that are effective and efficient.

Nozipho's review about woolworths Ladysmith
My days at work are hectic, I deal with different customers with different personalities and some frustrated, at times it becomes difficult when a customer shouts at me but I manage to keep my professionalism and add value to customers, we are a group of friendly employees and our manager is people centred, the relationship with my co- workers is very good and I enjoy the laughs and jokes that we share during our lunch breaks, the hours are very challenging considering the pay and having to work Sunday's and not going to church.
Pros: buying at staff rate
Cons: long hours

The company is a very busy place. One needs to be very Humble, Energetic and Patient. The working environment is a healthy one. The are days where by we work under pressure and you must be a team player and go an extra mile. To get the job done on time and making everyone happy including yourself.
Pros: You need to Attach youself and work had to be recognized for a position.
Cons: over time is always communicated before hand

Visual merchandiser specialist
My typical work for the day start from in the morning is to do hygiene in all my visual displays, then followed by 20% in my department and to check the sell outs for recovery. I work so much better with my co-worker and the sales consultant and replanisher. I have learnt to make a decision for what to sell when the launch stock is not available, being creative and thinking outside the box. I enjoy doin my work because i have passion in fashion and I love dealing with customers. Challenges that I face on a daily basis are mostly when there's no stock available for what I have displayed and I have to substitute with something similar and it's not on a launch for de week and when we are preparing for major launches like summer, Christmas and winter and special events because we have to work long hours and make sure we implement the exact way the head office have designed their launch and how he store should look like
Pros: Great opportunity for promotion
Cons: Long working hours and overtime
