productive and fun
During my time at cape union mart I found it to be very educational and fun at the same time. It was also a very motivational environment to work in and very respectful. I worked with the best of people. Everyone was treated like family it’s a shame I had to leave.

fun place to be
Management was hard core when it came to reaching target, making customers feel welcome and making sure your department was up to date. The hardest part was when I had customer complains about a certain item that needed to be ordered asap and it wasn't. In that case, as well trained as I was on how to deal with an unhappy customer it was hard yet always a learning curve for me. The most enjoyable part about previous job would be putting a smile on more than 5 customers(a happy customer) and of course receiving incentives at the end of the year
ProsStore competions on who will sell more would win you free Lunch

Head Office Johannesburg Learning and Development
My opinion of Learning and Development was so bad at Cape Union Mart. I will not put blame on the Company but as an individual i really almost lost my confidence and my ability. I really do not wish anyone to go through the humiliation I experienced and also almost doubted my potential. I am glad I left the toxic environment and I really wish all them well. It really was not my place. I have so much passion for Learning and Development but not in the kind of environment I was in.The CEO is the best ever.

Management is hard to please,you need to know someone to get promoted in time or else you wait for years.colour is also an issue,the lighter you are the better chances you have to be promoted.

The environment is healthy and the employees get along well. Management is open to listen to employees concerns and the HR department is very hands-on. Payslips are issued without fail every month and salary discrepancies are communicated well in-time.

Work place was very welcoming and pleasant. Selling products that you know the features and gains is the best part of the job. Dealing with diffuclut customers is the best best part of the job but dealing with them came naturally an calming the situation.
