Much better
They have a good work ethic overall. All employees, and managers are kind, and supportive, as well as considerate of problems with absences. They are always willing to help when needed, and they make everyone working there feel like they do belong, and that they are welcomed.

My journey at SM
SM is one of the biggest retail company in the Philippines. We've taught to give the best shopping experience and satisfaction to our customers. However, since I am part of the back office team, we also attend to the needs of our internal customers the same way they handle it at the selling area. Working in the retail industry can really be tiring at the same time, it is very exciting and challenging.

Enjoying what I'm doing of my everyday of my duty
Every day we need to talk nicely and to the customer and encourage them to buy my products, so I've learned how interact with therm. There is also rules and regulation that I need to follow every time I went to duty. There's a lot of customers every weekend also I have too many competitors beside me, so I need to work hard to get more customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was to compete with other merchandiser inside the shop.

Fun work place, stress free
SM is a company for minimum wage.. If you already have a lot of responsibility in life it is not highly recommended, however i could say that SM is a good work place to start your career.

This was my first job and it was a great experience, they have a strict policy, that you should follow. You can bring the experience that you get here in the other companies. They teach you on how to be productive and how to handle pressure and strict policies.

Terrible Management
1. Overtime is only paid every first week of the month due to preparation of FS.

So even though you have lots of workload on other weeks, your OT isn't paid.


2. No CPD trainings for professionals.


3. 7 days work schedule during peak season. Mostly December.
Pros
Free Uniform, Cheap meal in the canteen, good training
Cons
Terrible Management, The Vice President creates scandalous scenes ( i. e shouting at employees when she's mad), even other departments can hear.

fun workplace and it can make yourself more confident
What i learned about this company is dont just do your job because they giving you a salary, do your job with all your heart. The management in this company is good and i dont think i have any violence with their management. The hardest part in this job is the customer that you encounter everyday , they are not all the same they have a lot of different attitude that you have to understand but no matter what customer do or say to you whether is it good or bad you have to deal with it, because customer is always right.
