    I have been working at Woolworths Group part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I am on a part-time contract so I get annual leave, and we get free fruit in the break from, and one of my line managers who I had for four years took great care of us all and even drove me home once when I was sick

    Cons

    Sometimes feels like they care more about the customer than you, but depends on who your line manager is

    Advice to Management

    Please don't break protocol to please a customer, because we can't do that and then the customer just thinks we are being mean and it's horrible
