Good atmosphere poor advancement opportunities
A lot of skills to be learned. A very enjoyable working environment staff are very friendly and supportive. Hard to progress even with a variety of skills people progress but stay in positions for long periods of time so there is little chance to take advantage of skills learned.
Some changes going on company wide seem to be trying to help towards advancement.
Pros

Very informative workplace but also strenuous and stressful at times.
A typical day working in Woodies DIY would consist of helping customers with any queries they may have, unpacking and organizing stock, taking sales on tills, general upkeep of the store etc.
I learned a lot from working in Woodies DIY, mostly things related to DIY such as the different kinds of paint, different kinds of light bulbs, putting flat-packed furniture together etc.

I got along with everybody including management, my co-workers, the customers. I feel I gained a lot of experience in dealing with customers and any concerns or problems they may have.

The hardest part of the job was having to deal with the angry customers that I inevitably came across on a daily basis. However, once I kept a smile on my face, was polite and courteous, and did everything I could to remedy whatever the problem was the issue would be soon resolved.

The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new skills relating to DIY which I can put into practice in my own home and give other people advice on.
Pros
Occasionally customers would give you small tips for helping them to their car with their shopping.
Cons
Occasional long hours and strenuous work.
