I recommend working there

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working at Countdown is fun for a first time job or a part time job and especially if your young. It's fun meeting new people everyday standing at the checkouts, you get to see alot of action and alot of fun and cheerful things. The coworkers at Manurewa countdown were so easy to get along with and I would recommend it to any easy going, friendly, bubbly person.

Ā typical day was meet and greet customers keeping your area clean and putting groceries back on the shelf but I was offered to other jobs within the company when it was slow

Productive

It was a good job but most time there were a lot of things that could have been better. The most enjoyable part of the job was having a really friendly team members to work and get along with.

Work

You have to push yourself forward but if you have Department Managers that only believe in themselves you wont get anywhere. It depends on each Store, if your lucky to get a Store Manager who encourages his/her team to excel then your in a good Store. If your in a Store that the Manager that has already chosen his specific team then your stuffed UNLESS you fight it and go over his head Wsge wise, very good but make sure you get paid for your value and check every week There will be drama at all stores, you have to choose to ignore it or be among it

Pros

Good wage. Can meet long life friends. In the right store awesome encouragement

Cons

Drama, Self absorbed Dept Managers, gossip, hours can be weird

Enjoyable work place

Usually very full on and busy, filled with lots of cheery faces, which made the overall experience more fun. Always happy to take on other shifts when needed and management were always open to feedback and queries we had. Least enjoyable part was doing the trolleys and bins as it is the responsibility of the checkout operators.

very busy but good

I didn't work at countdown that long but the days I did work was really good. I enjoyed the days I did get to work learning is the best part. managers were good I think the hardest part was trying to learn all the veg and fruits but I got the hang of it in the end. the short time I worked their was a good experience for my next job.

Pros

got to learn the vegs and fruits

Cons

short shifts
