Countdown NZ Supermarkets Employee Review

good culture

The deli is always busy.making sure to clean up everything as it causes sickness to the workplace environment.hardest past of the job is to make sure that u use the right techique to pull out hot chicken from oven as it can cause danger, and hazard. I really enjoy the people i wok with, and the customers

Good workplace but very hard work

Pros: great people to work with, decent payCons: Very long hours ( I work about 10 hours each shift ), VERY UNDERSTAFFED, makes it very difficult to work in produce as 1 person at my store works each shift so it’s a huge amount of heavy lifting for the entire shift and lots of multitasking and back and fourths and getting things done, 10 hours seems like a lot of time but it’s not enough to get my workload done all by myself. I come home still stressed about my day at work. They refuse to hire new people and I don’t understand why, They can definitely afford it.

Same role

Always taken advantage of

Management refuse to hire new staff. Started with a large team but eventually everyone left to find somewhere better to work. Those who were still working there get taken advantage of and pressured to work even after saying no. Countdown do not value their staff. Management would always tell on you for the most minor reasons and put you down. Had several meetings organised by management bringing the team together saying we weren't performing well enough during peak Christmas time, where in fact we were, only for them to be sitting in the office on their phones doing absolutely nothing. Benefits and job advancement are non existent. Horrible place to work. I do not recommend working here.


Sometimes decent staff


Not valued, long hours, understaffed, bad management
