    I worked at NTUC Fairprice full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good learning ground for job seekers with entry level skills, where they provide much needed trainings and guidance.

    Cons

    has poor career progression - my colleagues who worked very hard for 5 years but was not promoted at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spot talents and groom them faster. Do not wait until when an employee is leaving for the management to take action in trying to promote and keep the employee, lest every employee does that...

    I worked at NTUC Fairprice part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly, nice, enjoyable, convenient, attractive, happy, joyful, incredible, interesting, captivating, communicative, responsible, funny. I will take this job over any other job if given a choice between something I do not like and this very very progressive job. There was a time when I did not enjoy the work but it was a brief fleeting moment that disappeared.

    Cons

    Busy but it is also not entirely so. Yet it could be depending on what you are actually doing. So everything boils down to something that is not exactly explainable.

    Most colleagues were friendly though some were nasty and the culture was not suitable for those who have high ambitions.

    Invest more time and money in human relations to develop a better working culture.
