    Depends on the store. You can set up email alerts on the WOW Careers website so you can be notified of new jobs in your area.

    It's actually one of the nicest uniform items. It doesn't have the logo on it so you can wear it outside work. My friends have given me nice comments on it and don't even realise it's part of the woolies uniform lol

    I think thats really good. It was terrible when managers used to be able to wear their own clothes. Most of them have no idea how to match a shirt and tie and they just look bad.

    I'm a Nightfill manager, so we just wear the green longlife polo shirts. They're much more comfortable when you're moving around a lot, and engaging in a fairly physical job. I've definitely not been informed of any such change to the front end shirts.

    Our SM and ASM just wear their own clothes too. A business shirt and nice pants, typically. They did away with the absurd requirement of a tie for the SM/ASM a while ago.

    Has anyone else heard of the new Longlife Inventory routines and the absurd implications for all involved therein? Someone at Woolworths literally thinks I have hours of spare time to go around pretending to be an Inventory Manager scanning and investigating Nightfill overstocks. That's at the same time they insist on counting my whole shift in the balance of Nightfill hours, by the way.

    Omg thank god. Every store I went into it was so terrible. I wanted to tell the managers to go into the city and look at the shirt and tie combos that modern businessmen wear. Only a supermarket manager would wear a dark coloured shirt with a matching dark tie. Looks so terrible like something out of the 90s haha

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    How about a shoutout for the VoC program!

    Some of my personal favourite comments (paraphrasing for confidentiality):

    "There was no bread and no fruit". Rated us pretty poorly. Proofing machine was screwed with signs explaining, prop bread and produce were both full all day!

    "Fruit and Veg quality is s***". Came on a day where store manager and the entire department did 5 quality checks of the shop over the day's course. No more than a 22L crate came off each time, mostly of stock that just didn't look the best.

    "I don't like how things have changed". sums up pretty much all of our comments since we started our refit, since they updated the grocery relays.

    "I don't like the roadworks outside the shop". Roadworks by the council blocked two of our entrances to the carpark. Of four. This was about a year ago now.

    Oh and of course the big bosses didn't care about the reasons, they just saw the low VoC scores and questioned us!

    Obviously, the adage 'the customer is always right' couldn't be further from the truth. In my experience is actually very rare that a complaining customer is ever right, about anything. ;-)

    My favourite customers are those who go to to the front desk and ask to see 'the manager'. It's late in the evening and these people have nothing better to do than whine and complain like little children about inconsequential things. Since I'm the duty manager at the same time as the Nightfill manager I get to deal with it. Half an hour of trade left on a Tuesday before all the specials change over and I hear brilliant zingers like 'Why don't you have any of [promotional stock that's better than 1/2 price] left?'.

    Or there was the rude, horrible, arrogant lady that insisted on shopping for TWENTY MINUTES AFTER WE HAD CLOSED. She verbally abused me for telling her politely that WE HAD SHUT, wow. Just wow. It's fine. I gave her the service she deserved. She had a massive, huge, trolley that was totally overflowing. Told the front end staff that they had to leave on time, and that that customer would just have to put all her shopping through on the self check out.

    Holy god I love it. How did that go down in the end though?!

    If people are rude to me like that, I am rude back to them now, I don't deserve to get treated like dirt. I don't care if they complain about me, my manager knows I am never deliberately unpleasant. She's a legend.
    Obviously I don't go out of my way to be rude or anything, but if someone's going to try and put me/a co-worker down or whatever, I'll stand up for myself/them if the customers being unreasonable.

    Also, random story cause this irked me recently, I put two of those glass sparkling apple juice bottles in the same bag together for this old couple, and the lady stopped me, all shocked and condescendingly said "Oh my god, you never, EVER put two glass bottles in the same bag together!!!!"
    Funny, she's the first customer to ever stop me doing so... and I have been working at woolies for soooooooooo loooooooooong.
