Department Manager | Gauteng | 12 Oct 2017
fun and productive workplace
my typical day at work, serve the best customer service, make sure all products are on the sales floor, have a big smile on your face throughout the day. I've learned how to adapt to different environments, how to handle pressure, how to be a good leader and loving your job. I rate management 4/5 workplace culture, work hard but smart, have fun while doing it. Getting used to the different shifts was the hardest part. Visual merchandising was the most enjoyable part of my job.

Cutural All-Rounder
An overall roller-coaster of physical and emotional as well as mental molding my character. Upbringing of personal and public values, skills and morals that benefited both myself and the company. Well absorbed and certainly and outstanding experience and also a pleasure to be apart of the Group.

Dynanmic
Learned to be really flexible and to be independent when doing tasks. To be prompt and accurate in task delivery. Able to withstand high pressure and a lot of last minute changes. To think out of the box and be resourceful. I was exposed to many high strategy meetings which gave me insight on how mass retail is planned and executed. Enjoyable part of the job is when I have successfully solved people's problems e.g. getting vendors paid , organizing big events and conferences.
ProsGreat location and colleagues

Busy, but fun and very learningful experience.
Cotton On was a pleasant experience amd I learnt a lot on how to deal with people, negative and postive people. It was a retail job, so there was a lot of sales and marketing of the products and promotions involved. I had to have an inviting face at all times on the floor. I learnt how to do visual merchandisimg and interacting with customers and store hygiene.
ProsFlexible lunch hours
ConsLong work hours standing

Overworked with little pay
Management does not value stuff and really doesn't reward them as they deserve. There is no guarantee of advancement unless you are a favorite and belong to a certain race group. Staff is not treated nor rewarded equally. No employment benefits for long term stuff. I couldn't wait to finish!

Dynamic environment
While working for the Cotton On Group, in the Factorie store, I experienced the dynamic qualities of both the specific brand and the company as a whole. The Cotton On Group offers great growth opportunities within in the company and always strives to empower the employees who show potential and are willing to learn. Higher management always showed an avid interest in the lives and wellbeing of all employees and offered comprehensive benefits because of challenges faced by employees. The company initiated a fun working environment which motivated employees to do their best; incentives were also given. The hardest part, initially, was the long hours that store management staff were required to work. But after revision of mall hours the store hours changed and made the task more manageable. While working for The Cotton On Group I learned that one can truly find management groups who truly care for their employees. I also learned to be more assertive and goal-orientated.
