Very nightmare experience here. Interview as Retail Executive as shown in their ads. But after a days interview, they call me and inform that my position is 'Retail Trainee' which I need to go my probation until 6 month then my position will be change to Retail Executive. How can I have more than 1 year experience but my position is Retail Trainee? I also get paid with low salary and not worth with the taskngiven.Some friend already work more than 6 month but still become "Retail Trainee" position. The job scope for Retail Executive is just same like you are Retail Assistan. Thhink twice before you work here or you just waste your time to build your dream career here.
Pros
Can choose outlet
Cons
Long hour working, Job scope is not like other Retail Executive supposely should do, Too many cons to list

It is a bit stressful as they are not enough man-power in each department during the shift. The management also need to relocate the staff in each department.

I learnt the way to arranging merchandise, replying email, filing the promotion listings, setting promotion display, stock take and so on. the management is quite good. the overall workplace culture is good yet the tasks in Chinese department is too overload and stressful for the newbie. the hardest part of the job is sometimes met and dealt with the different kind of customers. the most enjoyable part of the job is when the customers smile and look enjoy after they visit the outlet.
Pros
Friendly colleagues
Cons
long hours

Suitable for student who wants to try out for part time job. i think it is better for people work for full time as the salary will be greater than part time. As for full time they will have a basic and overtime compensation, but people who work for part time will only count for 5 ringgit per hour, no compensation for overtime working.
Pros
Books discount for staff.

Work started at 9 and the first thing to do is to arrange books. What I learned is how to handle pressure when facing customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the customer compliment me.

Same as others, have 3 Shift (1 Morning, 2 After and 2 Full) and 2 Off days. Had to learnt on how to make price tag, learnt to use SAP system and key in data, made documents and report, received stocks, checked stocks, handle supplier, learnt on where and how to display the items, learnt to work in a team and also managed own department. The management just okay. The hardest part actually they didn't gave much training to be a retail trainee, must have have a tough body to work a heavy job such as lifting the big and heavy boxes (around 15-30 kg). In Stationery department, there actually a lot of small items that need to be pricing and a lot of that small items might need to change the price. The work environment (new outlet) with some good coworkers (they willing to teach) made the work enjoyable.
Pros

The day starts off with a quick briefing about our goals for the week during Mondays. The manager is very careful in preparing our working schedule. The staff helps each other and cares a lot.
