    while its not possible to apply without an advertised position, you can hand a resume in at the service desk (some stores won't accept them though and just tell you to go online), if you're what they're looking for they'll call you up instead of the hassle and process of advertising it, and you'll probably have a better chance, that said, Easter is coming up and stores will be looking for more people for the long weekend rushes (how I got my job), so for best chances, resume to service desk AND apply online when positions open.
    did i just say that out loud?

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Under our service desk, near the big red silent alarm button, there is a small white button which says "Chime"... is this some kind of alarm? Also, on the checkout screen, if you go to MESSAGES > CALL SECURITY does this send an alert to CMS, or just do the systems office computer?

    No they aren't. There is a mix of VIC/NSW/QLD/WA on here.

    The chime button won't work anymore, it used to play this dodgy sound over the speakers. There is still a chime button (that actually works) on the speakers volume controller in one of your offices.
    It won't send an alert to CMS, only to the office computer. It's pretty useless really.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    if it's similar to us, they don't have to. but if a last night count is quite out, they might redo it to check.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Hi, I wanted to ask if a woolies worker is shopping with their friend and uses their own discount card for their friend's transaction, is it allowed, caused I saw some people do it while I was working in the checkouts

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    If you are physically with your friend, you can discount their transaction, that is perfectly fine yes.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    So, in other words, as long as I am with my friend, I can use my discount card even though I am not the one paying for it

    But then when I was working at the checkout, my supervisor said that it is not allowed, so I was just wondering as to who is right and who is wrong, as woolies doesn't seem to have a very clear explanation relating to such matters

    Thanks for your help anyway

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Your supervisor is wrong. It is allowed.
    They even mentioned this in my induction many years ago. You can use the card as long as YOU are present.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    iMathew, I was going to push the Chime button tonight, but the big red alarm button is right next to it (both the buttons are on the same panelly-switch thing, so they sorta looked alarm-related) Are you sure it has NOTHING to do with the alarm? I wasn't game to press it unless made that fire alarm noise go off "whoop whoop whoop". I looked at all the volume controllers, we even went up to the comms room, but I could not find a second switch.

    We haven't had our refurb yet, so I presume ours still works.

    What was the point of it anyway?

    Also, regarding staff discounts, most people don't even care who is present or not to use it.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Did you guys receive a call from your manager about your first shift? I had my induction a few days ago and haven't heard back from them yet, nor have I been added to the online roster.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    That doesn't even sound like a Chime... our frontend button still works and luckily, no security haha. What's it's purpose though?

    I would probably ring/go in and see your manager and just politely ask if you need anymore training to do. They might set you a date for your first shift then and there. Although I would say they would have to arrange it soon anyway.

    After today, I have developed a new hatred for the Britex and Rug Doctor machines. CSM was pissed at everyone because he thought one of them had been stolen; I accidentally returned them too early so we had no record of who had it lol, 'twas a very tense situation thereafter. Some lady then brought it back two hours later.... we all laugh at it now hahaha.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Back in the day, we used to use the chime button each morning to alert the store staff that the store was open for trading.

    I don't know if that was the intended use of it and I don't think it is used anymore for that purpose or any purpose.

    and i dunno how yours sounds but ours goes "ding ding ding" if that makes any sense at all...


    speaking of service calls, can we make a list of all of them, dunno how many there are but i only know 3...

    0: pick up shit on the floor around you/cleanup
    60: hurry up and take your garbage to the back dock cause the rolladoor is open and i wanna go home now.
    200: product withdrawal

    :\ It shouldn't change between states but here service 60 means a spill/cleanup and service 80 means take the rubbish out.
    Floor checks are also Service 8.

    Re: The Woolworths Thread

    Oh ok. Cheers I'll find a use for it no doubt haha :P Our chime button is more of a DING, but is only one sound, and its sorta sounds like part of the fire alarm? It didn't sound anything like a chime. Just this mono-tonal sound, similar to the start of the fire alarm. It went for like half a second.

    This is ours:
    Service 10: Supervisor Required
    Service 20: Customer Service Required
    Service 30: Telephone call
    Service 40: Price check
    Service 50: First Aid
    Service 60: Spill/Cleanup
    Service 70: I forget, we've never used it
    Service 80: Bins
    Service 90: Important telephone call for Store Manager
    Service 100: SECURITY!
    Service 200: Product withdrawal/recall

    Service/Priority 1: URGENT CUSTOMER SERVICE ERMEGERD!
    D ZERO: Destination Zero, same as Service 0. "All staff, D ZERO!"

    It would be handy if everyone knew Service 70 as letting staff know of an impending evacuation before customers know could be handy. eg: All staff please prepare for a Service 70. As for Service 200 one of the stores i've worked at also adds in the recall/withdrawal number to the end, eg: Duty Manager Service 200, Reference xxxx.
