The work is pretty straight forward: filling shelves within the time frame requested so you will need to be able to manage your time effectively and efficiently in order to meet the target.

Takes time to hear from employees in a form of a survey to improve overall management of staff, to offer continuous growth to employees, to create a healthy and fun work environment.

They have a lot of activities to offer and anything that will boost motivation. Offers more time when necessary.


The company is open to different cultures or workers from different countries so respect for other nationalities is a must.


The company also provides staff with information about town activities that can be attended.
Pros
magazines, the coffee, free stuff, food for breaks.

A typical day at work involved stacking up the shelves, rotating stock, Change the weekly specials on the weekends. It was a fast paced environment and working as a team is a huge aspect of this job.

Was good work, lovely staff. Paid well and great roster. Did get quite upset when I wasn't told to have the day off on a public holiday so showed up to work and they said I wasn't supposed to be there - bad time management handling with newer staff.

Pak' n Save is a great place to work. There are a lot of challenges and a lot of fun such as meeting people you know. Pak' n Save is all about food products and little other things. This means that one has to be well presented besides having a good intention for serving people ensuring their health and well-being are held at heart. It is placing yourself in their shoes and I mean the very shoes of those doing the shopping themselves buying for themselves and their families. When you see them you imagine yourself in them it is like that. It is not easy carrying yourself professionally all the time but that is what one has to try and do all the time. As workers we are not fuelled to handle the pressure related to work or that we are paid to do what we do. It is to do with our values and attitudes towards other people irrespective of their backgrounds. We just have to respect other people. It is not about pay, it is about people! It is about working conditions, it is about people!

I worked in the deli and it was pretty stressful but a great challenge. A typical day for me was to start at 4.30am and start slicing cold cut meats eg ham/beef etc, cleaning out dishes and presentation for the window. Cooked my meats which included pork, beef, and glazed ham. By 5am I had to put the chickens in the oven for 1hr 20 ready for 6am cook to come in and bag them ready for 6am open. Then throughout the day having to slice as much luncheon and other cold meat for stock to last the night till closing time. I would finish at 1pm.

A good job to have to get you into practice what work life is like.
Usually working in teams of 4-6 in your department there is a range of co workers with varying work responsibilities and roles.

Friendly and looking out to help where they can with either uncertainty of what your role includes or how to improve.
