I learned so much in my roll, not only about food and rotation, cooking chicken and food safety, I learned that at 5 pm to 5.30pm people have had a long day and have problems, to be more caring.
Pros
Customers and what they brought into my day, the knowledge of food handling
Cons
When people didn't show up for work

Was an awesome time working for Woolworths. They got me through into becoming a butcher which i stayed doing for another 6 six years. Perfect place to work for and a nice bunch of people to work with.

I enjoyed working for Woolworth's (countdown in New Zealand). The people on night fill definitely made it more enjoyable. Management within the Motueka Countdown store were good.

I have worked at Woolworths for 6 years and have been in the Bakery for 3 years. The apprenticeship is free (company pays), but the management expect more and more from you, but when you can't focus on cleaning, they blame you rather than their own time management and delegation skills. Overall good pay, good hours if you like early mornings, and normally good team to work with...
Pros
Pay, team members, hours
Cons
Management, the way you get treated

Can overwork myself too much

A supermarket that helps its community in ways which perhaps exceed expectations. Being near the airport there are plenty of busy people who love to pop in and get what they want during most of the day. Some of the management have been known to be members of local sport clubs which is a great tie in for those interested in the community from this kind of perspective.
Pros
Free coffee, in my time quite a few celebrities came shopping at Kilbirnie
Cons
A lot of people come through because of the nearness of Wellington airport
