The benefits of Countdown are very good.

Countdown works hard to keep the employees safe and happy. The workplace culture is friendly and typical of a supermarket. Countdown gave me the opportunity to learn butchery and taught me a wide range of skills and gave me lots of experience with working with others.

Don’t work at Countdown if you want to be valued

Easy flowing job, Good Diverse range of people, can be stressful if you let it. Would not recommend working at countdown if you want to be valued. You always are treated like a piece of dirt by store management & regional management. No growth within the company unless the store management take a liking to you and you do a lot of greasing up to them. They really don’t care about there staff only they’re “customers” and profit margins.
