Overall Reviews at Woolworths Supermarket
Working for woolworths for me felt like every day I went into work I was walking back into high school
The Hierarchy at Woolworths especially in management and supervision is the same as the hierarchy of the popular kids in a high school. If you aren't a "cool kid" you will be bullied and abused out of the business
Productive and Fun workplace
Great bunch of people to work with always happy. There is always training and staff are very helpful with any questions you may find difficult. Generally everyone enjoys there work and everyone helps each other.
ProsFruit in the lunch room on your break
Very busy everyday, great people to work with, meeting different cultures everyday, learning new skills in all departments of the store. Management are ok i guess could be better in some areas.
productive and fun work place
The most difficult part of my job was first day working at woolworths and i had no experience, i was a slow worker but really tidy and clean. i used to work at shelving and bakery.
No work/life balance, lots of micromanaging by upper management
Not recommended to work for Maybe as a first job. Micromanaged from store management up. Team leaders work loads are oppressive. Under value their staff
Everyone has their responsibilities - The workplace has its ups and downs
The job itself is fine once you know your responsibilities and tasks. At times it can be boring, almost systematical - which can be a good thing at times. There are just other days where management won't bat an eye about all the good you've done but will freak once you make small stuff up.
You can make great friends with the other team members there which make your day a bit better, especially if there are rude and trashy customers. Between social life, work and school it was difficult at times to balance everything, but I managed (all the same) and I would imagine that its all the same in any workplace anyway. The most enjoyable part of the job is having a quiet day and working with another good team member. Good shift hours too, management is sometimes flexible too which is a plus.
Was student work experience
During my work experience I learn how Woolworths work in different department of the company I got in e supervisor show me anything I was ask and I got offering a work after my work experience but I wasn't interest to work because I was focus on my hobby
Good opportunities provided, can be stressful at times but you are always part of a team. They acknowledge hard workers (at my current store) and are always trying to help people build a career
Great to be a part of Woolworths
The management is good, very happy with my manager. Usually spent busy days and served lot of happy and smiling customers. The workplace culture is very good and depends on the store manager.
Productive, friendly work environment
Majority of employees at Woolworths Hocking are friendly and make the job more manageable.
Management team can be harsh but lovely people.
Team are very supportive and allow room for growth and development.
ProsGood hourly rate for supervisory rolls, genourous lunch breaks, friendly staff to become life-long friends.
ConsHard to get long hours, management get moved around often.
It was just fine
I was happy to work for wollies, even though the salary was not enough for my needs but because of the trainings they offer and the experience of learning how to run a business, that made me happy
