a good place to work. Sometime difficult to handle stock during CNY/ Christmas, because a lot of incoming stock/ promotions. good benefits for workers in term of training.

Working in NTUC Fairprice is fun. You get to interact with a lot of people, that includes fellow colleagues and different types of customers. Aside from that, management is real good too. It's like working with your family.
Near my place of residence and perfect time for me too.
I was attached in this company for six months as an intern and i certainly enjoyed my experience there as i managed to be apart of every of their departments from being a cashier, to storekeeping and stock counting. I was also given the opportunity to become a team leader and experience what was it like to supervise and manage a team. Overall, it was a worthwhile experience.
A typical day at NTUC as a Designer is comprised of designing and generating working drawings for approved new upcoming supermarket. We will have department meeting for an overview of the ongoing projects, to give ideas on how to improve working capacities, to problem solves issues like on the administrative side as well as problematic technical matters.. Designer will also conduct project meeting with the internal and external parties for sharing of important information. During the ongoing project, Designer has to monitored and coordinated the work on site for smooth flowing. The management will keep in touch with all the other departments involve to have a meet up once a week and the Head of Department will address some important issues or for employee bonding session. Its a very accommodating and conducive working place for anyone who wants to strike a balance of work and life practice.
Work challenges, good benefits.
Over the years, I learned to better multitask and organise my work. Our typical day at work includes forwarding and replenishing of goods before waiting for new stocks to arrive. on certain days, i will have to do ordering of stocks to be arrived for the next day. During my spare time, i will do the checking of expiry of goods. Fortunately for us, our outlet branch manager is okay. Hence, there is not much issues with the management here. The working culture here emphasises on working together as a team and always helping one another. The hardest part of this job is attending to difficult customers. however, that being said, i still find the joy while doing my job as i get to interact to customers and having small conversations with them. The best part of all is seeing those smiles and 'thank you' when i go the extra mile attending to customers needs. :)

Working at my part time job at NTUC as a cashier is still alright. The working hours is by shift, which is good. The management is very friendly at the outlet I worked at. The hardest part of the job, probably would be to handle the long queue of customer flow. We need to be quick and precise at times. Settling customers doubt on products etc. But it is still a good job, which gets me permanent salary flow as i only able to commit weekends during schooling days.
Flexible working shift hourss
Carry many heavy stuffs
The whole experience was enriching and challenging . Though it was new and demanding at first , the senior workers assisted me and made me more comfortable and as time pass I became more ok with all the work load passed to me .
more convenient to purchase food produces
when you handle difficult/ fussy customers, you have to identified their feeling either unhappy or sad shopping experieced management very understanding the problems facing by all cashiers at the counter. Co-workers all are supportive and team work Hardest part are when get scolded by customers because of promotion items/ wrong price or customers get rotten fruits/ spoil items The most enjoyable part is when you get friendly/good customer
Annual Dinner and Dance
short breaks, working hour till midnight
A typical day would be quiet during day and crowded during night especially weekends and public holiday Learned a lot of stuff but mostly about retail Stock ordering is the hardest sometime it sell fast because there is an offer sometime it just stuck in your backstore seeing those stock being sold i feel some sense of achievement Co worker are friendly mostly older than me able to talk about stuff that i have no idea some in the past some in other industry and some slice of life For hardest part of the work before i promoted to retail supervisor i thought that it was ordering but after i was promoted i found out that coordinating and arrange stock is the hardest such as every thursday advertise special and weekly fair/offer/mustbuy/purchase with purchase and sometime new stock that have been launched we have to arrange into normal shelf without breaking the previous arrangement grouping The enjoyable part of the job would be seeing customer able to get what they want to buy and happily head off to the counter for example few occasion when customer asked me location of the items they want and i was able to show it to them and they thanked me and head off to the counter some even came from faraway just to get the stuff of course nice versa if after i showed customer the product location and its out of stock i would feel a bit remorse especially if i was in charge of the lane that the product was.
Good Benefit, Claimable OT, Friendly co-worker
