Overall Reviews at Mr Price Group
Casual workplace & easy going staff to work with
I love to work for the Mr Price Group but unfortunately our salaries have not been fairly increased in the past few years so it's getting harder to survive with the cost of living increasing more than one's salary increase
ProsFun company & flexible working conditions with managers
ConsSalaries not fairly done
I had a number of daily outputs to achieve, as well as serving the customer with excellence. Management was very helpful, as well as the staff. We had certain targets to meet everyday before COB. The staff had to make sure the store was clean and all had to be in order before the doors opened at 9am. We were mostly young adults who worked at the store, and the culture was excellent. There was alot of challenges, but i cannot say that anything was hard to learn or to master, i enjoyed working in this enviroment.
ProsStaff discount and incentives for top achievers
Inspiring place to work
Great culture, and lots of pros, but low salary. I enjoyed working for Mr Price - it was fast paced and the common thinking was we're innovators - nothing is impossible
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.
cashing up, communicating with clients and managing a good work culture was amazing

The Managers were also glad to help whenever if the shop is busy
