Was this review helpful?

Competitive working environment

The management in other branches like in Luzon or Mindanao or other parts in Visayas is pro-people/employee but with the management that handles the 3 branches in Cebu (Department Store) is the opposite. The management does not value their people as assets but instead as liabilities.

Pros

Many extracurricular activities

Cons

HMO cannot be availed freely by the employee, one must ask approval first from the clinic to use it, human error becomes a grave sin then which leads to deduction in salary.

Dynamic workplace, so much workload, no career growth

Dynamic workplace, so much workload, no career growth. Poor change management. Always changing functions but not rewarded. Poor career pathing. Benefits not competitive. Salaries are not increased. Leaders are always dominant type.

Productive

A typical day of work in SM Department Store as a Civilian Guard was actually fun, exciting and stressfull. Stressfull because of the nature that we are responsible for monitoring some customers who are trying to steal merchandises from the store.

Cons

Prolong Standing
