Recruiter (Current Employee) – Mount Roskill, Auckland – 5 December 2018
My role helps set up new owner operators on their Foodies journey.
I look after everything from the initial inquiry right up to board approval. I also support owner operators when they are recruiting new team members in to new build stores. I also recruit roles across our Support Centre.
The culture in my team celebrates self leadership and controlling your own destiny, encourages pushing the rules and constantly asking questions and looking for smarter ways to do things.
Foodies is full of opportunity if you have the drive and ambition to make it happen.

Mt Roskill location - tired office space (but moving to the airport in 2020!)
Checkout Operator (Current Employee) – North Island – 9 October 2018
I thought this job would be a real great way to learn some skills and get a good start into the workforce. I was so excited about getting the job (although the period between me getting the job and starting work was about 6 weeks, not good at all). However, when I got the job, I saw I was going to be paid the Starting Out Wage. For those who do not know, this is a mere $13.20 per hour, for the first 6 months of an employee working there. Yes it’s legal, somehow. Obviously the company wants to get away with playing their staff as little as possible. No benefits at all, you are not cared for at all. I was told I was getting a progress report with my boss for the first 3 months that I had worked there but that didn’t happen of course.
Oh! I forgot to mention that they will find any reason possible to deny you leave.
The only reason I am there is because it is better than nothing at all, although actively searching for a new job.
The only real plus side is there are some really fun people that I work with, but that has nothing to do with the company.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Clarence – 10 August 2018
The shop is busy and very active work environment. dont hear much from the Management team which is good. Customers always wanting to know where things are or why dont you stock....? Very physical work. I feel some people in the work environment are underrated and underpaid going by the double roles they do.
Really fun workplace, lots of opportunity to progress
Talent Coordinator (Current Employee) – Mount Roskill, Auckland – 14 October 2018
Great place to progress in your career, my manager is very supportive of helping me develop.You do have to show a lot of initiative - the support is there when you ask for it but you need to be proactive in seeking opportunities
Lots of social activities (netball tournaments, soccer tournaments, wine tasting, etc)
Can be a really hectic environment but there's a lot of opportunity to have fun (and have cake)
Senior Commercial Analyst /Contract (Former Employee) – Auckland New Zealand – 22 August 2017
Superb company culture, top of the class executive management and team spirit. That was my entry to retail and fmcg environment and I was pleased that coming from a versatile background I was able to open new dimension for senior management in terms of effective reporting.
I enjoyed my job very much as there was no 2 days the same. Reception was a busy place with customers, clients, management and staff, as well as phone calls, mail, payroll, IEA contracts, filing. I learned how to be organised and prioritise important to least. New system was introduced called SAP accounts system this very challenging as it was very different to JDE accounts system. I have been both President and Secretary for the social club. The management was restructured serveral times there leaving the co workers and myself a bit unsettled but still knuckled down and got the job done to a high standard. The hardest part of the job was learning SAP as this was done over the phone from Head Office. The most enjoyable part of the job was the excellent rapport I had with all the Management and Staff, as we all worked as a team and always got my jobs finished at the end of each day to a high standard. The were sad to see me leave through redundancy.
SAP Trainer- Contract Role (Current Employee) – Auckland, Auckland – 30 May 2016
The culture at Foodstuffs is not straight forward. I have gained a better understanding of SAP. The hardest part of this job is to adapt to the culture which is highly charged with psychological regulations. Most enjoyable part is the flexibility in terms of location and the travel to work outside the office.
I enjoyed working along with a great team. completing duties in time as well as dedication to do more when mass, unexpected workload occurred. I have gained time management skills and knowledge in warehousing & distribution, enabling my ability to increase my performance effectively within the system utilised to achieve daily targets.
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Manukau City, N – 3 November 2015
