      Pros

      Pay is good, especially at night with penalty rates. Good union (could be better) that will help and council you when you need Stress free work as long as you're not a manager Good co-workers (most of them anyway)

      Cons

      Good managers and workers don't stay long. Expectations of managers and their teams are completely arbitrary The breaks are good but you don't feel like you can take them AND get everything done. Some of the managers are miserable, usually they're what's left after all of the good ones have left. It's not entirely their fault, it's just what happens after 5+ years of dealing with rude customers and absurd workloads.

      Pros

      Great employee benefits. Great team culture. Effort to survey and action concerns. Work from home culture and is widely accepted. Many employees with over 25 consecutive years at the company, shows how great Woolies is.

      Cons

      Not many, is a large business, so can be harder to get recognition for hard work and effort by a wider audience other than the immediate team.
