A good first job

I was a retail sales assistant in 2013 and this was my first ever job.It was a good time and it was nice to work with colleagues who are helpful and friendly.Pay wasn't good (S$6/hr) and I hope it has improved over the years.All in all, a good environment to learn that earning money isn't easy.

Nice workplace culture

Colleagues and manager at the outlet that I was working at were really nice. Since this job was my first part-time job, having really nice and patient colleagues helped me to adapt quickly to the job.

Fun Place with Good Colleagues

Leading a small team of customer service officers serving Popular customers islandwide, there has never been a boring day! Some days you get good customers and resulting in very good day but most days you encounter nasty customers. Hours can be long, especially when there are events but it's not frequent. Colleagues are all supportive and stood by each other even when the going gets tough. The culture makes it a very nice place to work at.

Pros

Company transport, medical & dental benefits, 20% off discount at Popular

Cons

Manpower shortage

Communist company

If you are obedient, not wanting a career but just a job and missing kindergarten/primary school's life, this is the place you will be happy with. Unnecessary house rules and a senior manager with paraoia disorder, you would be 'entertained'...

Pros

pays on time

Cons

house rules and monsters

Meaningful Experience

This workplace really trains one to be independent, be able to cope with pressure and the fast-paced environment. It is toughest to handle customers and other duties at the same time, especially during non-peak hours or during the weekends. It is worth a try for those who want to experience worklife in the retail sector

attend and assist to customer inquiry. Also assist customer complaints.Co workers have team work and a happy work place.The hardest part of our job is pacifying customers who are very angry and we cannot close the problem due to no stocks or stocks that customers wants is not available.At the end of the day when store is close and see that we have big sales and achieve our quota for the day, everybody is happy.
