Extreme Work Environment
A typical day • Managing a store with a stock capacity of 40000 units • Monthly budget planning for employees, overtime, repairs and maintenance • Planning and preparing for unit counts and stock takes • Calculating shrinkage and putting procedures in place so as to minimize it • Identifying shoplifters and their behavior • Administrative control • Auditing of paperwork and reports • Stock control, receiving of stock, identifiying missing stock from delivery • Merchandising the store according to company standards • Ensuring that markdowns or re-prices are done so as to move them out timeously • Supervision and training of permanent and temporary employees to reach their maximum performance • Interviewing and employing new staff • Motivating employees to reach daily and monthly targets • Managing the staff team My Area manager had trained me up on a five year out dated system and was repremanding me for systems I was unaware of. My Operations manager was very positive and fair. My co workers the other managers in the area were very supportive but liked to gossip. They were also very competitive. Some of my staff were happy and hard working however my 2IC was disrespectful and undermined my authority. Some were stealing and vandelising stock. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the staff and not being aware of the fact that I had not been trained up on the updated system and constantly not knowing what I was doing wrong. The hours were also very consu

fun place to work where you become a small little family.
A typical day at work would consist of clocking into the system and immediately going to your designated work stations which would either be unpacking the stock room and sorting the items into the different sections of the store or correctly labeling items according to their sizes or placing them onto specific hangers or taking control of the change rooms or discarding of the boxes the stock comes in with. I learnt that working in retail requires a lot of patience and you always have to be willing to help a customer at all times no matter what. The management at the particular store i worked at were very friendly and you always knew you could turn to them if you needed help in a certain section of the store, My co-workers and myself formed a strong bond and we would always be willing to help each other if one or the other is a bit lost as to what goes where. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with customers who are convinced that they are right and want something when its either out of stock or the certain item isn't available because we don't get it anymore. One of the many things that i enjoyed about working there was the fact that although the majority of us were casual holiday workers we all got along well and there were absolutely no bad vibes between all of us and we all got designated working hours so nobody ended up working more hours than the next.

fun working environment
i got to work around 7:00am. Clean the place, fix clothes that need to be fixed before the store opens for the customers. They needed to come to a clean and tidy workplace. As the day progresses it got bussier so we had to assist those customers who needed help finding certain items. always had to make sure the clothes are in their correct places. On certain days which was usually a Thursday, new stock would come in. Had to do stocktaking, ensuring that the items that have come in are in accordance with what was ordered for instance. As soon as the shop opens, others had to go do floor duties while some were at the back continuing with stocktaking. Once everyone was done, everyone is packing clothes according to their sections. I learnt a lot about customer service. There are different kinds of these customers and as an associate you needed to know how to deal with them accordingly. My colleagues were the best. I was working with very fun and dedicated individuals who made the workplace fun to be in. We had fun times. Our store manager was also great. Always tried to make the workplace fun to be in. Every morning during staff meetings they would motivate us and that would make us want to work hard throughout the day. what i enjoyed most about the job was the work itself. I was working with clothes and personally i love fashion.

casual worker
in a corporate retail world it gets real busy and people will be wanting your services of which you have to deliver as agreed because of the goals of the company that each day has its own business target, I have learned that the customer is always right and no matter the day the business has to go on... the business wont be the same sometimes is good but sometimes it is low depending on the season. management is there to guide us and ensure that we follow the rules of the company and to assure that the business is operating well/ if in a business we work as a team then everything will be fine as team work is the best medicine for a business and that not to judge your selves among one but to be there for the company and not to forget the goals and the reason for the company as some of the people are there for the wrong reasons. on festive season it is very busy and tiring but through team work and commitment to see the company grow. this thing called "company cold red" it really does disturb me because it means we are not delivering and that some of us casuals are no longer booked to come to work and that is the hardest part of work. most enjoyable part is when we make target in terms of profit and to seeing all stuff happy and enjoying their work

Pruductive and fun place to work at
My typical day entails , - checking on my emails and responding to those that require responses. - Checking on our call tracking system for any critical calls logged and planning how the rest will be handled if there is no system down call logged. - going on site if there is an issue that requires me to do so. - as I work through each incident call logged I make sure that follow up is done with user after call has been sent back for user acceptance testing. - in between I set up time for bug /investigation calls to be attended to , this results in les incident calls logged by the end of the month. in All this I work hand in hand with my co workers where need be else I work alone. in between I also set up and attend meetings with various stake holders with in the business for any requirements while conducting the investigation on the investigation calls. I have a good relationship with my managers as they have an open door policy to all their staff. the hardest part of my job is going home knowing I haven't achieved a set goal in the time frame that I had set up for my self. the most enjoyable part is learning something new about the business.

Hard working team of people
A typical day would be arriving at work and greeting each member of the team then going into my office and checking through my emails. Then I would be involved in many meetings all week so I would check my diary early morning and attend whatever I need to. I also did a lot of factory visits and travelling abroad so I learnt a lot about local SA manufacturers and built up good relationships with them. I also learnt that the work culture is very different from the UK. The Management team are very remote from the every day life so not always aware of what is going on. They could also be more supportive. I inherited a team of people, many of them had applied for my job and not go it so were very resentful and unsupportive. They were very difficult to work with. However the five members I employed were incredibly supportive. The hardest part of my job was the people management, there was a lot of pettiness and politics within the team. The most enjoyable part of the job was collaborating with small groups of the team to achieve the targets we were set.
ProsLots of benefits such as car insurance paid by the company
ConsPolitics and non support

Love the Culture/ Relaxed working environment & loads of fun/Great department management
A typical day at the office would be arriving at least 3/4 of an hour before office hours to enjoy coffee with some of my colleagues and discuss the days priorities and just to have a catch up on a personal level. As I have always been deadline -driven, my priority for the day would be to meet all deadlines,as missing a deadline would have a major impact on our stores and our business.My day only ended when my work was 100% complete. I learnt that every decision needed to be thought through and challenged ,as wrong decisions could have a major impact on the business and it's image The company has made some mistakes with their appointments of managers, but the system eventually works these incompetent managers out.A strong team exists currently that has great leadership qualities. Love the culture - mostly young, happy and loads of fun.Great team! Loved every aspect of my job !
ProsShares, Incentives, succeses & special occasions celebrated
Consoffices being underground - no natural air

Productive and fun workplace
A typical day at work starts with a 15 minutes meeting concluded by a prayer, then workers report to their departments for their daily routine. Through this experience, I have learned to take responsibility and accountability for my job while embracing every aspect of it and I have also learned to associate and work well with colleagues and helping out where ever I can. We worked well with management and we were allowed to give opinions and invent fresh ideas to improve our working environment. The workplace culture was to simply keep the environment clean and attractive for customers, make sure the price tags are correct, assist customers with their needs, and have a little bit of fun while doing the work through music. The hardest job part was to handle a whole lot of customers needs at the same time and the most enjoyable part of the job was music and moments of laughter with colleagues as that contributed a lot to our psychological well being and thus allowing us to remain productive.

It is a very productive place to work in
A typical day @ work starts with us(MR price employees) openening new stock from the store room before opening the store @ 9:00 in the morning,we make sure that we work as a team so that we are able to reach given deadlines. My Co-workers are very helpful and supportive When you work overtime you get paid less than what you expect,some of our team leaders r not professional they have their favourite people which means there is a lot inequalities in the workplace and as a casual store associate we get less benefits especially when it comes to shares. MR price is a good enviroment to work in because you get to interact with different people,it has taught me well on how to handle customers thats what I enjoy about my job. The hardest thing about this job is a rude customer who refuses to understand when you try to tell them why MR Price doesn't have certain products or sizes available.

Busy,nice and fun working environment
It was always busy more especially during weekends.It was festive season and everyone(customers) wanted a new outfit.sometimes we worked overtime which we were not gonna get paid for but no one really complained because we loved our jobs.The management was not really that bad.The manager and her assistant tried their level best to manage the shop even thou sometimes they were being rude to us but we didn't really mind.My co-workers were the best team one could ask for,they showed unity especially when it was the knock off time.They helped each other to clean the working environment.The hardest part of the job for me it was when we had to sweep the floor,clean fitting room mirrors,clean the shop windows and mop the shop after a busy busy day.The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to hear a thank you from someone who you just helped to get whatever they were looking for.
