A lifelong Journey

Being in this company is such a life changing opportunity to me for the reason of they hired me even if I am fresh graduate and religion is not hindrance of what can person do, some say that I can't be hired because of my religion but this company proved them wrong as I am one the example of that hindrance they say. I learned a lot on this company not just the job but also the persons I encountered and work with, it gives me inspirations to do duty as a part of the company. Thanks a lot and Kudos to this company. Marks and Spencer, SM Lanang and Abreeza Branch, Davao City

Training Ground

Such a stressful workplace. Aside from long hours of work. You are overloaded with tasks that sometimes tends you to forget taking breaks just to prioritize the task that needed to be done. Well, its a fast-paced working environment and you should expect the worst scenario. Initiatives and alertness is needed. As a team leader, you must walk your talk. Despite the cons, you will get challenged and learn the things you thought you could never do. But I love this company. It is one of those companies that made me who I am now. It is the best place to use as a training ground. :)

A place where i learn more about selling

I've enjoy working in this kind of job. The management set to it that the employee while work and the same learn and enjoy while doing their jobs. Even though the salary is not enough to support my financial needs but then there reason why should i work because i choose this kind of work.
