    I was told at my recent group assessment that it was 10% off at all Woolworths stores except Dan Murphy's. I'm soon to be a Woolworths employee, I've got my induction this Saturday. I'm going to be doing nightfill at Tuggerah (Central Coast).

    I've been wrong before, many times. So I'd say you're right. I wasn't paying that much attention when they were talking about it.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    The Woolies conferece will be held at the new Norwest building in Bellavista, that place is huge...

    the conference is basically run by our suppliers who set up and display current and new products coming into the market. Its quite breath taking. The displays are huge. In the fresh food displays, like the meat unit, they actually set up a meat unit and fill it up with stock. If WW has a new launch for example, like how they want the stock to be displayed, they will set it up to show everyone.

    Everything inside is free and plenty of taste testing.

    They have celebraties and models to show off aswell.

    Its for all managers for all divisions under the Woolworths Limited logo.

    It used to be in Canberra, which was good cause I managed to go, but then they moved it to the convention centre in Syd, and this year it will be at the new Norwest WW building.

    I wish I was invited, but in my role, we dont get invites..

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    um I remember when I was 16, I got $8.15 (casual)
    Now at 19, I get $15.25 (casual)

    I think it goes up about 25-50c every year for inflation etc, and also an additional 1-1.50 per year on your birthday, up to the age of 21.

    Expect about a 1.50-2.00 increase every year up to the age of 21

    Those figures are my estimates only though, and this is in Victoria

    Yes you get paid less if you're part time. Why don't you just wait and see what you get paid.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Yeah part time is about $1 or so less I think

    safeway wages are ok, and seemingly better than fast food joints, but a bit crappy compared to some other places

    i was at an accounting firm over the summer for work experience and that was like $24/hr. if u really need money, try to get into some good work experience joints, especially if you're a commerce or a law student

    Re: Woolworths FAQ- how to get a job

    Woolies is the worst place to work in my opinion

    Well Cashier, the other departments are probably a lot better.

    I absolutely hated it and my supervisor was quite nice.

    For now, I'd rather shop then work there For all those out there trying to get a job, I recommend a smaller company or shop. You actually get noticed and get treated with a lot more respect.

    Good Luck!

    Re: Woolworths FAQ- how to get a job

    I've been working at Woolies for 3 months now as a shelf filler and I hate it. My manager takes the work a lot more seriously than I do and wants me to work faster. A few weeks ago he asked me if I enjoyed my work. I was about to say "It's Woolworths! What's to enjoy about a crappy little job that pays $11.50 an hour?" but I just said "Yeah."

    I'm trying to find a different job in like a clothing store or something, one where I can bludge.

    Re: Woolworths FAQ- how to get a job

    I used to hate Grocery the most, but I have to say the worst is freezer. shit its cold!

    My personal favourite is front end, cause you never have to stay back late cause you haven't finished everything, and theres little pressure

    Yeah I hate the freezer as well. They give you a jacket to wear but no gloves so my hands end up being blue when I finish my shift.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    I've got through the group interview and now I have a store interview, so what are the chances of being rejected? Am I still competing with other people who have gotten store interviews?

    I work at Big W. Officially a recovery assistant (worst. job. ever.) but I also do floor and checkouts occasionally.

    Same thing happened to me. You dont get a pay rise when you turn 16, only when you turn 17.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Can anyone help, i have a problem here. I applied for a service cashier position and got the job, I had my induction and was told to call up my store to find out when they would require me to work.
    So i called up my store and they said if I could come in on Thursday when I'd be at the register with another worker (as I have no idea how to operate registers and wasn't tought how to, as part of the induction). Only problem is when i gave in my availability times Thursday was not part of them. Soo whyyyy are they telling me to come on Thurs, should I just go?? And also when are they gonne gimme the roster?? Any help would be great! Thanks.

    Re: Woolworths FAQ- how to get a job

    lol they're always like that. They always tell you to work at inconvenient times.
    eventually you have a gutful tell them to f*** off

    but I think for you on thursday, they want u to go in for register training, so I think it will be a one off thing only. but its best to check with them

    usually they post the rosters on a wall, just ask someone where the rosters are posted.
