To whom it may concern,
On the 24/11/2018 me and my Fiance whent to go and buy some food from your crossings store.
When getting to the till and having to want to put this on the woolworths card something was wrong so there was a lady that took my Fiance's ID and card to try and resolve the problem. After about 10 minutes she called my Fiance he spoke to the people on the phone. She then said that she needs to void the slip and fax this to head office so all the while standing one side while feeling embarresed because everyone can see there is a problem. So after about another 20 odd minutes passing i decided to ask where she whent as i have arthiritus and my legs and feet are hurting from the standing. I walked to the last till and asked where the manager was and the other lady said i am the Manager so i started to explain that we are waiting for the other lady and to get back to us and i would like to know how long its still gonna take because its a bit embarrasing. She then without listining to the whole story asked me what till i was at. I showed her she walked to the till i asked her to listen to me and what the problem was then she did not need to speak to anyone else while standing at till she replied to me i need to get the story from her (the cashier) insinuating that i would lie to her about something. I than said to Gomotso (the manager) that if she just listend to me she would not have to ask anyone else what happened and she started laughing at me and i asked her are you really lauging right now and with an attitude she said yes she was. She was so rude and unprofessional that even the man that also had a tag that said Manager came and took her away.
Me and my fiance left without the food we needed. I am so dissapointed and i would like a Manager to call me back
Your feedback regarding this matter will be highly appriciated .
OVER COOKED CHICKEN AGAIN. !!!
store ID 1180 010 trans 9050 24/11/2018
Great new store layout.
Obviously new chicken cookers installed.
Chicken as above receipt at 17.19pm cooked 16.10pm. The lower leg portion was that overcooked it had completely dried up. The breast meat was dry and tough. As a regular customer your roast chickens are no longer tender and moist. Please do something about it.!!!
If Coles and IGA can do so should Woolworths. I am not happy as I have previously complained about overcooked chicken and obviously nothing has changed...
The rap music that they play in the store is so loud it is impossible to do your shopping it sounds like a rock concert even the other shoppers were complaining even the manager at East Gate said that it was very loud but could not assist as it head office
There are very few non-Halaal options in your Nelspruit Stores. All Unilever products are Halaal and there are no other non-Halaal product equivalents. An example would be Magnum Ice Cream.
I purchased what was labelled as "Roast Pork" from the heated stand at your store in Malvern Vic last night about 5:15pm. When I got home I discovered it was actually a piece of ham inside a net bag and completely sealed in plastic! Had I lived locally I would have returned to the store immediately but I live in Heidelberg and travel by public transport so that was not an option. (It was a one-off visit to Malvern to attend a market research session.) Needless to say, I wasn't very happy as I can rarely afford to buy meat and only purchased this as it had been heavily reduced in price. (It was marked as out of the oven at 12:40pm.) I am a pensioner and was most upset that I had wasted my money. Not only did I consider it a problem having the plastic bag in the oven, I am unable to consume high salt foods. I hope you will at least instruct your deli staff on the difference between roast pork and ham as well as safe cooking techniques.
I had one bottle of milk to pay for and because there was a lady in EXPRESS lane with a trolley full I had to wait 15 minutes came on OPEN more checkouts EXPRESS lane is 15 items or less and you SHOULD put that on the sign to let people know. No wonder you are losing customers I would have left the item on the checkout and go else where but Mum likes Woolworths milk I don’t know why
I visited your Brentford Square Store 3173 (Vermont) and my rewards card did not register even though the machine beeped
and light was green I reported it to the service desk as I have a special offer for this week and wanted the amount recorded
against my card (9344682943790 - $35.84 - pos 1 trans 6716 19.55 3/11/2018)
The girl Elle informed me that it is not their fault if the machine does not work and that she could not
fix the problem and told me to 'have a good night'. I informed her I was not happy with the store as the previous night Elle had charged me twice on an item (excuse change over - staff swapped over on the register while in the middle of my purchases)
Her manner was condescending, repeating over and over to 'have a good night'. Her responses to my complaints incensed me even more. I walked away then returned to the service desk as I decided to return all the items for refund
Elle ignored me and I waited for another staff member. She then came up and asked why I was returning my purchases and was it only because of the points not being registered (apparently she did not serve me as she was off duty - I answered and said she should not be behind the desk- her reply was she stayed to help staff ) When I said I wanted a refund she then asked to look in my bag I asked why and was told I may have forgotten an item ( all 8 items were on the counter and she had my docket in her hand to check) I took offence at her accusation.
She then requested ID for refund even though I was still in the store and had just purchased items. I gave her my drivers licence she then advised me that it would take a while to fill in all details I took all items back and threw them in the trolley and advised her I would not shop in that store again Her reply was 'you have a good night and we will see you again' - great way to treat an extremely angry customer
I shall now be checking out the local Coles Store!
(a former satisfied regular Woolies shopper)
I love shopping at your Port Hedland store as the produce is of outstanding quality any time of the day / night . I also love the range into your deli . I was totally gob smacked when I went to your deli on the 26th October 2018 about 4 pm . I was approached by a young girl I don't know her name as she wasn't wearing a name badge maybe 18-21 . She was chewing gum like a jersey cow as she spoke to me , was wearing more jewellery than a jewellery shop and to top it off she had the longest pink false finger nails . It was like wtf I'm pretty sure there are policies that don't allow this . I walked away without buying anything as I didn't want any spit from her gum , broken nail or a piece of jewellery in my food . What a joke
Woolworths Nambour was shopping to day Friday 26th with my wife at 2. .30 pm out of all the checkouts only 3 were being used, people were lined up waiting, and waiting,I asked one of the staff to see if more checkouts could be opened,nothing happened for quite awhile so I asked again and wastold someone had come to see and said the was no one there.Very strange as people were lined up waiting,
My wife and I are 79 years of age and now were to sit and wait to be served, I was about to leave the store with my wife when a supervisor turned up with a bad grace and ordered a member to open up the till.Last year woolworths assured customers no hold ups at the checkouts.Looks like this went out the window with good service.Not happy.
Their Jamie Cumberland sausages are not even close to the genuine ones .Thrown a load of pepper in to try to flavour them
Why should i have to wait 48 or more hours for my money to be refunded back into my account. I asked the lady for a cash refund and she said it can only be put back on my card. This should not happen. I want my money and should not have to wait 2 days for it. I am done with your company.
Over the past six months i have been trying to buy yellow capsicum. i have been told they are unavailable. Not true. I shop at the store in Lakes Entrance Vic. I was recently down south in three different woolies stores and there in in fresh produce area was piles of yellow capsicum. so i asked the question why in those stores which happen to be in quite affluent areas and not in Lakes Entrance. Answer was there is only so many to go around, thats fine but i can assure you that my dollars are just as good as anyone else"s. The upshot is that i find it disgraceful that because i live in a lower area of wealth that my taste for yellow capsicum does not count.
Shame on you woolworths
Yours Gaye Sandy Buchan Vic
Good Morning, I would like to put forward a complaint about my online shopping experience at Cranebrook Woolworths NSW 2749. As I am 8 1/2 months pregnant I had decided to start online shopping as it is just getting way to much for me to do the big shops now and have my husband pick it all up the next day as he wouldn't no what to get if I wrote it down.
My complaint is that I made the order sat morning received a confirmation email with order number , payment made and when to pick it up. The next morning my husband called me from the store to inform me they can not find our order. I then checked my emails to find out it had been cancelled and refunded with no reason at all. The lady at the counter informed my husband that this may have been to many products being out of stock or payment declined. I actually don't know what happened and don't understand why this has happened. This has been very frustrating for my husband and myself when I could be going into labour any day now. My husband had to come back home print out the list go back to shops and spend an hr shopping for all the products we ordered and pay a second time. We are now waiting on a refund for the first payment we made.
The fact that we have had to go through all this waisted time of ordering online, going to the shops twice , actually doing the shopping and paying twice without even an apology or a valid reason as to why. I have attached the order information below so that you can track the order and hopefully find out what has happened. I am worried about doing further online shopping after I have the baby as I will be needing formula and nappies and will be worried it will be cancelled.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself on 0416870063

Please see below for refund details regarding order number 30724601.
I have been a regular customer for more then 40 years. After the cashier closed the transaction today a bag was needed for goods to be put in for some senior customer. Unfortunately Scott the duty manager would not approve the use of a bag which should have been scanned prior to closing the transaction . The senior did no have any cash to pay for the bag. I had to pay using my card a sum of $0. 15.
I will oblige by sending the transaction should you wish. The cashier was helpful.
I believe , that some policies are for fools and always regarded your management were wiser then them.
I know you will not respond and give the store policy as a convenient blurb.
I filed a complaint about their Woolworths brand toilet paper just on a month ago via email (Parklands store was the one I visited) and I to date have not even had the courtesy of a return mail or call.
Very very poor the management is a joke at Miller i will be going further With it and maybe even public I’m seeking legal advice Thank u
I have been a Woolies customer for over 20 years and have always purchased groceries, vegetable, fruit and meat as part of my weekly shopping.
However, I will not be purchasing my meat again at the Woolworths in Winston Hills. Given the current quality of the product on offer I can only imagine that you have changed your supplier.
The meat is of sub-standard quality and very over priced. We are fortunate in Winston Hills as it is only a short walk to Coles, Aldi and a butcher. This is the walk I made today as I was not prepared to pay the price you were asking for steak, lamb and pork.
I will continue to make the walk along the Mall to Coles until such time as the quality of meat you provide improves.
Although it is optional to provide an image of my complaint having not purchase the meat I could not do this and would suggest you look for yourself.
I do my shopping at the Kingsway Woolworths in WA every week. I wished to purchase some kebabs from the deli dept and was served by a young man. There were only 3 kebabs in the tray in the deli cabinet and I wanted 10, so I asked the deli worker if there were any more. He said he would have a look in the coolroom for any more. However, he just went to the door of the coolroom, had a quick glance (no longer than 1-2 seconds) and said there weren't any in there. He could not have possibly looked properly. I asked him had he looked inside the coolroom and he said he could see from the door that there weren't any and that they would get some more tomorrow. Obviously he couldn't be bothered.
About ten minutes later, I asked my husband to check back on the deli to see if the kebabs were refilled. The tray still only had 3 kebabs in it so my husband asked another male worker there if there were any more. He said he would check and came back after 30 seconds with a full tray containing 20 kebabs which he opened and served him with 10 kebabs that he asked for. It seems the first worker lied to me and could have lost a sale if I had left after such poor service. A supervisor or manager needs to have a chat with the staff there to ensure a better quality of service.
I wish to complain about the service I have received regarding my claim which has now been in since early may 2018. The main problem we seem to have is continually ringing Customer Services section and being told someone will ring you back shortly regarding the claim which never happens so consequently we get nowhere. In early September we received an email saying job was now completed so I checked work done at the unit and again rang Customer Services to mention that the Facer boards needing painting. As I am heading towards 80 years of age I would have thought that would have been part of the job and not left to me.
Also prior to storm there was Gutter Guard in spouting and am not sure whether it has been replaced. It is very hard to see if it has been replaced and I don't feel confident getting up a ladder to have a look.
Even today I phoned again Customer Services Number ending in 969. I spoke to a lady regarding the claim and was told she would put me spoke to Manager in that section and I was left waiting for50 minutes and no one got back to me so I evenually hung up without getting issue resolved.
I shop in woolworths for all my groceries, today a competition came up on the register, so I thought why not give it a go. I have been logged on for over an hour trying to find the competition. Woolworths.com.au/qantas. Can you please send me the link.
Not sure why it is so hard.

Went to Woolworths Townhall to pickup few things for dinner, when I went to self service register & scanning my shopping item I accidentally put eggplant as onion, prior to that I put onion in. As I about to put one of the eggplant to the bag just realised it was wrong about to take out the eggplant this self checkout (Indian) lady (short hair with glasses) screaming from behind saying 'you put the wrong one!!' (LOUD tone) and I turnaround at her and I said yeah that's why I was looking for you. Meanwhile while she's cancelling the item that I put wrong, I said I need to get a tomato then she's giving me an off LOOK. Anyway, I went to get the tomatoes she put aside my eggplant next to the scale assuming she have made the correction so I put the eggplant in the bag and she SCREAMED back at me telling me it hasn't been done yet, so I said to her I thought that she had put it through and she say something back to me 'I'm NOT Putting it for you!!! (LOUD tone!).
Then I said to her RELAX! and she questioned me about the onion I purchased like I'm going to steal something else put it under onion. So I took out the onion from the bag and show it to her and I said Relax ok! (because I couldn't stand her talking to me in a very loud tone!!).
Woolies you failed me! You need to treat your customer service rep to be more polite when they speak and you don't scream to customer.
Today I visited Woolworths in Victoria Park Perth WA.. (15th October)
I went through the express lane check out area which even though there were 3 girls behind the counter only one was serving as the others where chatting. When they finally decided to stop talking and call me through the girl was rude, as i payed with my card she didn't even acknowledge the final transaction and wait for my purchase to finalize so she could give me a receipt instead to totally ignore me and pick up her phone and start reading it and texting. The other girl standing next to her decided to get the receipt and as i was about to walk off held it up to see if i wanted it.
As I was so annoyed and upset at the service I just looked at her and walked off without taking the receipt, which I regret now as it would of had the transaction details and the name of the rude girl that served me. This is not the first time i have come across inattentive, rude staff here and I today I thought whether is goes anywhere or not I will be letting you know my disappointment. We are paying customers and if the staff cant get off there phones for 5 minutes to serve a customer or pull themselves away from chatting they should not be at the front serving...
That was most certainly not an express lane today and not from being busy but the unprofessional staff attending the check outs there.
I have been giving feedback for the past couple of months after each visit to my local Woolworth's store and received for the month of Oct 2018 this email from:

I went through the process trusting your brand and filled out my personal details and address and bank details (as I was offered a choice between 2 phones for being a valued customer)
It was only after giving all my details I was taken to bookfeen.com a tv & movie site online stating id signed up for that instead and paid a fee of $1.49 for this month. I rang and cancelled my visa card immediately and told them I was also contacting you about the SPAM Support - Woolworths email.
I think this will be the last feedback I will give about my recent shopping experience at our local Woolworths store as I was excited that id received a gift for my feedback but Ive had to cancel my bank card because of this SPAM. I am wondering how the spammers knew I was giving feedback in the first place?

Some weeks ago I fed a $10 note into a self service machine at Richlands Plaza (Brisbane) and it disappeared. The machine either spat it out and I didn't or the machine didn't register.
I asked the girl on duty to look under the machine but there was so much rubbish under the machine and they were not allowed to move it. I wrote to the Manager(Marty) who didn't have the courtesy to reply.
Certainly not a good look customer service wise. This is not the first problem I have had with self check out machines.
I will not use them any more or use cash.
I do not really have a complaint yet?? - but would not have a clue who to contact with this question
one of your Hotel's which Woolworths own and operate, the trading hours are
Mon - Sat 10:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Fri - 10.00AM to 12.00 AM
Sun 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM
QUESTION - what does the 12am and 10PM trading hour mean?? Can you purchase a drink at 11.55 or 9.55 ? or does this mean the place stops trading 30 minutes earlier (ie. 11.30 or 9.30 ) and refuse patrons service after this 11.30 or 9.30 time period, Then at 12 AM or 10Am the patrons are asked to leave.
can you please reply by e mail

I have just thrown out my middle rash bacon I purchased at Woolworths on 28 th of September, I have registered my complaint twice before but no action,the bacon was totally fat and as we live out of town we haven’t been back in to town. I always get my bacon at Woolworths plus our shopping I can’t express my disappointment as I needed it for a special occasion and had to go to the local store and pay heaps Regards Tom
As a normal practice when i come to work in the city (Adelaide rundle mall ) ,i come to your store to buy a bottle of water today at 2.45pm.
i came to the cashier who were free at the time (named Tamara ) to pay .
when came to the counter she said and i quote " I'm sorry i ask the people behind to come first so i can't serve you" (who were coming from the selfservice counter side).
It was a 80 c water bottle and it would not even take a minute to do the transaction but she enjoyed i think making me go behind .
I thank her for the polite gesture she gave me and did not wait for her but went to the self service and did my transaction .
I wanted to speak to the manager but she was busy with few customers and i ask one of your stuff how to make a complaint and he gave me the details to send you this info .
I thought it was very unprofessional to ask the people who have gone to the selfservice to come to her and who is at her counter to go behind.
I think tamara has the right to have her own private beliefs and opinions in dealing with multicultural people at her free time but when she is working for a company like wooly's she should know that you need to serve all customers who pays the same dollars to get the same service and value for money.
I would like to make this complaint so that another customer like me will not be served the same way by tamara as i feel its very low for a company like you .
The Classics range of frozen dinners "Slow Cooked Pork" with cheesy potato & cauliflower ,mash and carrots
Was actually Pork sausages with gravy and mash I liked it but it was NOT as described on the packaging
since Woolworth Moama NSW 2731 has been refurbished the service from checkouts is very very poor...At 9am No checkouts were open only the do it yourself area which was manned by an employee but which nobody was using, 1 fast lane which I had to use & lift groceries which contained heavy bottles from the trolley to a double story counter which no 80yr should expect to be doing...something must be wrong in the running of this supermarket to not have more employees to man the ordinary checkouts. I have been a customer with woolworths for many many years and feel very disgruntled with this situation...This isn't the first time this has happened tooo many.. but enough is enough.....
I wish to provide feedback bout the customer self serve check out area for the Bundoora Melbourne store. I was using the self checkout recently and had a male employee of around 16-18 stand approximately 2 feet from me watching me constantly. I felt so intimidated by his behaviour. Obviously he had been told to watch the customers as they scanned their items, but he made me feel like I about to do something "illegal". I got very flustered and felt quite anxious at his over the top and intrusive manner. I will not be shopping there again as this was not an isolated incidence of this type of heavy handed customer service behaviour. I will be shopping at Aldi from now on even though they do not have packing and self check out, I get treated with respect at Aldi and do not feel "watched" as I do at Woolworths. The store can use cameras at the self checkout in a discreet way, it is NOT ok to make customers feel they are criminals in training.
I have visited Woolworths Supermarket in Unley to buy a catch day gift card shown on a catalogue with a 1000 points promotion. I have been advised the store dont have any gift cards available and the promos was displayed on the walls. I have asked store to check if any other nearby have any of these vouchers so I can go there.The lady (or the manager) advised that none of the stores in Adelaide have these vouchers. I was intending to buy $500.
It is very disappointing that is stated in this catalogue and promos were clearly displayed in the Woolworths supermarket but the shelf across all the stores are empty. Ver bad service.
Woolworths advertised "buy any 2 Philly products in one transaction and receive a platter. For two weeks in a row I purchased 2 Philly products requested a platter only to find the staff knew nothing about the promotion. I gave up in the end.
Secondly, I was informed by you that I would receive reward points for bringing in my own bags. I asked the checkout girl why she did not credit me with my bags, I had produced my rewards card. I was told we longer have that promotion. I checked with the store manager on duty who told me I was right and the checkout girl was wrong.
There seems to be a communication problem at your Park Beach Plaza store. Does management even both to speak to their staff?
On the 17/08/2018 i was waiting out the front of Mount Druitt Woolworth's for them to open up at 7:00am. Once they opened up i went in to buy a packet of smokes, i got asked for my I'D i gave them my forklift license as its my most recent I'D, they said they couldn't accept that so i gave them my Learners License and they said your License has expired we cant accept that i said but it has my picture and my date of birth which my date of birth is the 17/03/1997 and they said no we still cant accept that. I did say to them that it is stupid and stuff i did go off at them which i am sorry for doing i was just annoyed at that certain time of what was happening. I would just like to know what can happen or is all this true with the I'D.
Why have you stopped selling eggs that are not refrigerated? I do not, and will never keep my eggs in the refrigerator and so your eggs are no longer suitable for me. Woolworths at Thrift Park, Parkdale has always had both refrigerated and off the shelf, but with the new layout, which I might add, is very inconvenient because the isles now have no break in the centre, has stopped having them non refrigerated, leaving me no choice but to go elsewhere. I might add that I have been a loyal Woollies customer at this shop for over 40 years but once I start going eslewhere I will most likely do all my shopping elsewhere as well.
A lost customer,
Someone here recently said that customer consultant "Barrington was "Awesome" - well I'm not so sure. What unnerved me was how easily he managed to wind me up over what was a simple matter: Jalapinos in my Sourdough Bread. To the uninitiated Jalapinos are Mexican Chilli. I must have been slow off the mark because Im 67, however his supercilious voice reeked of antipathy towards my problem. When I tried to explain that I suffer from GIRD and that Chilly can put me in hospital he turned my complaint into a university debate. "Halipinos" he said in a stuffy Melbourne Grammar accent, when I tried to explain how labeling Bread as Sourdough then writing underneath in smaller print - "with Jalapinos" was misleading. I tried to add that when I typed this label into Google that every one of the many hundred examples of this item were returned labelled - "Jalapino Bread", bar one - Woolworths. I then contended that the effect strong chilli can have on some people is akin to that of peanuts on others. I even presented recent evidence that people of different ethnic backgrounds had different tolerances to things like peanuts and Chilli. No nothing I said he agreed with. He, despite being half my age was more traveled and knew more about food allergies. When I mentioned I was sick and had sought medical assistance. He then came back with the line - so you went to a doctor, we have to escalate this! No I said I went to the chemist it being 8pm, with my script for 40mg Pantoprazole and additionally purchased double strength Gaviscon.
The real issue anyone with empathy would have understood without turning it into a university debate was Woolworths inappropriate product labeling. Woolworths it seems are trying to cash in on the Sourdough bread label by adding additional varieties that in effect are no longer Sourdough Bread - and need to be labelled as what they are: "Jalapino Bread". Or as Barrington said correctly in exquisite mocking Spanish - "Hallapino"
Well Barrington whoever you really are, you sure wound me up and pushed the right buttons. At first I thought you were Canadian with that Christopher Plummer plum in the mouth - then I thought Melbourne Grammar - then I thought Oxford educated South African via Durban. Now I just think you are the wrong type to be in customer service.
I needed to return 2 packs of Golden Delicious Apples purchased at Woolworths Kloof Branch because my child said they were sour but the staff member Princess Dlamini totally refused to process the return although i had a valid till slip. I tried to explain that my sister bought the same apples and had a similar complaint and my child also found that the apples were sour as she eats these type of apples all the time but she was not happy with these purchased from Woolworths. Princess refused to hear any excuses and did not take the items back for a refund or offer me an alternative. I am totally disgusted with her attitude and bad service. I eventually had to drive further away from where i reside to another Woolworths store where they gladly took back the items and gave me a refund with a smile and without any fuss or questions raised. I also am disgusted with the service from the Woolworths Customer Care whom i phoned on Monday, the consultant that answered the phone did not seem helpful so i asked to speak to the Supervisor/Manger whom to date have not called me. I then called the branch on Wednesday to speak to the store manager but he was not in, i left a message and he too has not called me since. I am very upset and disappointed in the way my complaint is handled and the disregard from customer care and mangerial staff in regards to my complaint. I will also post my complaint on social media so other customers can see what disgusting service Woolworths provides to their loyal customers in regards to returns or any type of complaints.
I bought a Woolworths Pepper Steak Pie 450g, the one that you heat up in the oven for 30 min last week.
I have bought numerous pies in the past and have never had a problem but the latest pie I bought was very disappointing, to say the least.
The meat was inedible, only gristle and no gravy at all
I don't normally complain but felt this should be brought to your attention.

I bought a bottle of milk online from Woolworth. I picked it in the evening on the 27/07/18. On the 2nd August morning, I found the milk is already expired as it was marked on the bottle best before 1/8/18. I called Woolworth customer service, the lady told me she cannot refund me for that milk because there is a 5 days policy on dairy products. I should consume the milk within 5 days not wait until it is expired.
As a customer, I am very disappoint with Woolworth's policy. My experience is I should open every single bag in store to check if all items are right before I picked up from the store. My experience is I should not bought any products online because you do not know what they will give you. Woolworth's policy only know by their staff and not by customers.
Eventually, the lady refund the money to me. She said I shall put down a note in your account that you have been educated about the dairy products. I feel bad for such a bad education with Woolworth
I have been a customer of woolworths for many years – probably your longest customer.
After being sick for several days and unable to shop I decided to order online for a delivery.
What a mess.
First I put in my postcode – to problems appeared.
Then my address – again no problem with delivery.
Trying to make up the order was hard with the specials keep appearing but I persevered and finally got to the checkout.
Free delivery on first order – no mention of the $100 limit.
Order before 6 pm for next day delivery – oops – no let’s try 2 days.
I spoke to your customer service (why you call it that is beyond me – rude covers it)
I was told that the store’s quote for that day was already filled.
Rang the store to check – oh no was the reply, we don’t deliver.
So I am sitting here with an empty pantry and fridge – fingers crossed that I might
feel better tomorrow to go shopping –
Definitely NOT at woolworths.
I am sick of your LACK of staff on the checkouts, your business takes billions of dollars from customers and we stand behind loaded trollys for an age because there is no customer service at the checkouts.Today was no different and while I was waiting 2 checkouts were closed leaving only 4 operating. I think its time a bit of service was offered to the people loyal to your store, incidently I shop at your Mount Gambier stores. Thank you.
Why are is WW using Killarney mall as a training ground for young inexperienced staff who have millennial attitudes?
All the older ,mature ,experiences staff seem to have disappeared and have been replaced by a rowdy,rude ,slack attitude filled bunch!
This store is no longer a pleasant shopping experience.
I have on many occasions had to remind the cashier that I as the customer in front of her,and I am the ONE she should be interfacing with and should NOT have to speaking to the packer or other staff members hanging around in her,in her African language.
The cashiers DONT SMILE ,they look grumpy and disgruntled .Should I have to feel bad that I can afford to shop at WW??????
This afternoon between 16H50 and 17h05 ,I strongly suggest you watch your camera footage of your incompetent ,arrogant "store manager"
I had to remind him of who was the customer ,while he danced around with a hanger in his hand and we had to wait for 15minutes to pay.
Its quiet easy WW ,I can take my R3000 that I spend on food weekly elsewhere.The staff you have placed in Killarney are not representative of customers that shop there ,most so in ATITUDE!
He must be replaced, HIS ATITUDE SUCKS and he represents WW.Most concerning is that yo have placed him in this store !Have you not done your market research ?
I am expecting feedback regarding my complaint!
Artisan bread. Over the past 4 months the walnut, currant & fennel loaf has deteriorated dramatically. When Woolworths first introduced the new line it was delicious but very expensive- ($6) but I would treat myself to it(I'm an age pensioner)..today when I bought a loaf it tasted & looked nothing like the walnut , currant & fennel bread. I have tried calling the number at the top of my docket on many occasions over the past months with no success. Is there no quality control of the product? So who is responsible? I'm upset that the quality has totally come to this & I've not been able to talk to a manager about this problem- I've been a loyal Woolies customer for many years & would like that to continue. I look forward to a response from Woolworths. Thank you. Rike Kullack
I Bought shirts and was over charged by R10.00 by one of your cashiers Portia Cupido - who also didn't know about any of Woolworths products.It may seem like a small amount but if Woolworths gets away with overcharging people like this it will accumulate a higher value.
I cannot seems to attach the pictures here, upon your response I can send it.
Rang customer service line with enquiry, spoke to Barrington & he was awesome. Transferred me to my local store te issue. Spoke with Michael who's the manger, who also was awesome. Gave me all relevant information. They were both helpful & professional. Was a pleasure speaking to both.
I know this is a 1st world problem, but the three Woolies stores I access (Bankstown Centro, Stockland Wetherill Park and Bonnyrigg) have been out of my current favourite chocolate for weeks! It is the Freys hazlenut MILK chocolate bar. Apparently it is everyone else's favourite too, because the stock is regularly out. Please note: no one likes the dark chocolate version or the popcorn crunch! Also, the GREEN TEA flavour of mochi (in the Asian products section) has also been out of stock at these locations as well (again, everyone's favourite!)
Could these items please be restocked more regularly?
Today at UNDERWOOD KURABY only 2 checkouts open both had long queue the 15 or less checkout not open people queuing up for self servethis is not good enough .I will be shopping at Aldi in future.
Beef Bourgignon 500g product was of unacceptable quality due to high component of inedible gristle. Shared product in a meal with two friends and one in particular had to leave a high proportion. I expect better from your own product priced at $20 per kg
I recently shopped at Woolworths in the New Mandurah Forum W.A , can you tell me why you don't stock spinach from Australia as I could only buy spinach from the Netherlands or New Zealand, surely we have growers here in Western Australia or even the whole of Australia.
My family only buy's Australian produce as we can rely on it's quality and we support jobs here in Australia.Can you look into this and see if you can rectify this problem please as I would like to continue getting all my needs from Woolworths rather than having to shop else where to get all my Australian produce. Many Thanks .
Kind Regards Brian Coles
Bought Woolworths brand Frozen snack Chicken satay with long grain rice. Expiration date Dec 19. Bar code 9300633320751. Package had no chicken in it. The rice was present but the satay side was empty except for a small amount less than a tablespoon of sauce in it. This is the second item that I have bought of Woolworths brand in the past 2-4 weeks that has failed to meet expectations. The first being an oats breakfast product that was short the amount of packages that were meant to be inside it. This is leaving me with the opinion that while Woolworths may think their home brand products are improving their quality control seems to be decreasing. After buying 2 such poor quality products I am starting to rethink I should stop buying home brand products because while they are cheaper the price is becoming indicative of their quality. Like the porridge oats I will not be wasting my time returning this item to the shop as I do not keep shopping receipts and its not worth the effort on my behalf or my time. I will simply not buy these products in future nor would I recommend buying Woolworths branded products if this is how their quality continues to be.
This morning at approximatley 11am I unwisely shopped at your Kwinana WA store. At the checkout we had to wait while "maggie" finished her conversation with an off duty staff member about " here age when she started going out with her husband ". Really I don't care or need to know this information. When eventually "maggie" starting registering my items she recognised me as an ex employee. Note I have not worked in that store for at least 8 years and while there we were not personally close or friends "Maggie" then enquired as to what I was now doing. I replied and stated my current occupation with no further information as it is of no concern to her. Then to my horror remembering that at this time I am " THE CUSTOMER" Maggie then proceeded to " slur " my occupation and my character while I was employed at Kwinana while in the hearing of other customers and my friend who was at the checkout with me. We were not at this point engaged in friendly chit chat.I rarely shop at Woolworths these days and won't be returning. I suggest that you advise "Maggie " to keep her loud mouth firmly shut. As a customer to your shop I do not expect to be subject to service assistants personal verbal comments regardless of what they think of me. How often has this same type of incidence happened to other customers in your Kwinana store???.
Our normal big shopping is done online, with which we have no complaints. But occasionally, like last night, my wife does a top up shopping after work. There was only one staff member, & my wife had to use the automatic tellers. These were not working properly & my wife complained that there is not enough room by the teller to place the purchases. My wife said that the staff member was seen being very rude to a young lady customer that was also having trouble getting the machines to work, going from one machine to another. Because of the problem with these auto tellers my wife was late home; we live out of town. We will no longer be doing any shopping at Woolworths other than online pick-ups.
I received your email of 18th instant quoting $8.50 per kilo for chicken thigh fillets. I travelled to Woolworths
at Vincentia only to be told their price was $9.50 per kilo. Does this mean I cannot rely on the emails
you forward to me for weekly prices.
I want to put in a complaint about Nicholas who works at your Colac store (young blonde, maybe late teens to early twenties) using offensive language in range of customers hearing. Talking about how his boss is a “c**t”. Might be worth reviewing his adherence to customer service and store policy
I wish to vribg to ur attention about my lical store at collingwood park qld 4301

Just today, I bought some Woolworth brand Salted Pistachios. Tag read BB 10/01/19 10:12 3
Well, I was just wondering whether you should be brought before the ACCC for false advertising.
1.....They were not salted......not at all. Did someone just wave a packet of salt over the pistachios during production??
2......They are tasteless.... I can get better at any other store.
My wife wants to shop at Woolworths, as we have done for decades. But for the first time ever, she agreed with me that your standards have slipped.
We have spent, over the years, hundreds of thousands of $$$$ with your Company. That is about to change.
Clever advertising does not belie the fact that some products are 3rd rate.
Aldi is cheaper, and the products are just as good if not better in most cases. The new German interloper will be here soon, and the race will truly be on.
Tell me, why on earth would I give you my hard earned money anymore???
And,..FYI....also my family members? Just saying.....if you can afford to lose a long term many $$$$ customer like me.well good luck to you.
Hope to hear from you.and please...........none of the usual template messages
Sounds sill eh..over pistachios?BUT??
Many Thanks.........Michel 0402 245 933 firstname.lastname@example.org
My complaint is against the blatant misleading advertisement in you catalogue with the starting period 11 Jul. 2018.
The reason is that on the front page you have a classic family roast at $6 a kilo.
I have been to the shop at park side and their answer was (Oh we are changing managers and he forgot to order it try the avenues or the willows.
Fair enough so I went to the avenues no we don't have any.
OK next stop the Willows none there so I spoke to the butcher and he advised me that there were none and the other shops have any either.
I have just wasted a lot of time to try and get something that is advertised and not supplied, at no store was there a retraction or an explanation about the goods not being available.
This is not acceptable, it is not the first time that this has occurred and I want to know why there are so many faults in the catalogue.
Today the 13/7/2018 I went through the self serve checkout at 11.30am at Woolworths Supermarket Epsom Victoria, I had a can of mother drink which I got out of the fridge near the checkouts, it did not have a bar code on it, I was the only person going through self serve at that time and I said to the Woolworths attendant (Cherylene her name I think)" excuse me this drink can't scan" and she replied "well you will have to go and get another one"I replied Ï can't leave all my stuff"and quite nastily she said " Ï will stay here"at this point I said ÿou are being very nasty"she replied "what did you say"I replied ÿou are very nasty", she glared at me and said "how hard is it for you to go and get it" she held her stare on me so I said "I am not going to play your childish games"and I ignored her to continue on with my purchases, I have been a customer of Woolworths for over forty years and I have never had a complaint, I rarely go to any other supermarket, I really felt that this girl was out of line and would hope that she does not treat any other customers in this way, I have always found Woolworths Supermarket staff to be very helpful and friendly particularly where I most shop which is Woolworths Golden Square Thanking you
Today afternoon I went to Burwood Westfield Woolworths to buy seafood. A customer service lady from Island grap the lobster tails and King Green Prawns by hands and didn't use the disposable gloves. Then she thrown the package on the counter without saying anything.
I brought the lobster tails first. Then when I saw the king green prawns on special, I asked this Island lady to give me some prawns as well.
I have been to many different woolies stores. Today was a nightmare that broke the good impression of high hygiene and good customer service used to be.
I complainted to the store manager before I left the store. However, I think this is quite serious against the hygiene rule and terrible bad customer service, so I think I need to lodge a formal complain throught online.
For a long time I have been buying microwave dinners (kids left home) have been happy with quality. What pisses me off to send this is, you have made the instructions so bloody small in print on packet. I have had eyes tested only need low readers, now I have to use a magnafiing glass to understand cooking instructions! You go to the shop and buy a 400g beef lasagne. These meals are made for one, but we are important.
I love my local woollies but this needs to be addressed for us older folks (61)
After writing and submitting my original complaint, I was advised to share it via social media in order to get your attention. WTF?
My ID NUMBER is 781026 0255 083. When I gave my banking details to Woolworths in 2016 I was told that I was only owing R4000-00.. I would like to know how much more that I still need to pay before your company stops deducting the R300-00 from my bank account.
My contact number is 076 6494 333/074 266 7069
My husband bought me the wrong cigarettes and I returned to the store with both cigarettes and receipt only to be told that they would not be exchanged. He bought the wrong ones and the most expensive and I had reason to return them. Why could I not do so? Explain your policy regarding this as if it were an unopened food item it would not have been refused.
i am sending this complaint about Roket apples they are much smaller now they roll around in the plastic case they are in but you are still charging $4-90 for 5 . If you are going to charge that much then put an extra apple in the container it is large enough now or drop the price . My sister and i buy at least 6 pkts a week and we are pensioners.When we first started buying them we couldnt get them out now they are like marbles rolling around . Be fair please .
I downloaded sometime ago a Woolworths shopping ap for my smart phone. Over a period of time I constructed a list of my regular items for my weekly shopping which I find extremely useful. This week I tapped my Woolies ap for my list and got four different options, mainly to do with online shopping, and no access to my list. Where has it gone. One screen says access your shopping lists but it won't let me. Help.
My problem is the new changes with delivery of grocery items now for a lot of people this has become a necessary help especially if people who are disabled. So you charge now 12.00 which has just gone up from $11.00 for delivery. Now witth the new delivery in bags 1.00 extra per bag i assume and then which is really a major problem with me you want to charge another 3.50 to put on the bench which is what happens and the person receiving always help drivers on top of 12.00 my god you can surely suck up the cost of fellow putting on bench it is ludicrous . This is probably first time in my 67th year ever putting in a complaint and seriously thinking to go to sunrise with it. I will however wait for your response
Thanking you in anticipation

14/6/18 at 2.30pm my daughter who is 19 took her Grandmother to the cigarette counter at Woolworths Deception Bay whilst helping her do her grocery shopping. She has told me that when the young girl at the counter who had dark hair and glasses and was about 20 years of age served my 80 year old mother she just shoved her cigarettes at her across the counter. There were no other customers waiting to be served. My mother asked "Oh do you have a plastic bag I could use"? as she had not yet entered the store to start her grocery shopping. Your employee's response was "Oh I don't know...maybe if you're polite and ask nicely"..My daughter who is a university student and does not live in this catchment was absolutely appalled at this interaction with someone the same age as her towards her grandmother. The bag was then just shoved across the counter towards them and they took it and moved away from the counter. However after they moved away from the counter and went to enter the store my daughter looked back to see your employee rolling eyes and clearly talking in a negative tone about my mother to another employee in the section who she has described as a short older blonde lady who was in her forties who did not engage in the same behaviour.
I am sorry but I can not let this go....My mother is 80 and yes she does smoke! but she is a well regarded person of Deception Bay and has lived there for 40 years. To have my daughter come home quite upset about how someone her own has treated her grandmother at the "smoke counter" makes me wonder how this young woman actually interacts with your other clientele who are not so well dressed, or elderly or accompanied by loved ones as my mother was. I seriously think you should reconsider if she is the best person you want representing your company perhaps she would be best at back of house with no customer interaction.
I look forward to a response to you regarding this very concerning incident!
I am an avid woollies shopper and of late I have been buying your brand of choc chip cookies because they are the best tasting and are good value but the last 4 packets I have purchased have all been broken and I end up with a tray full of crumbs and pieces and lucky to get more than 6-8 full cookies out of a packet.
If I was only getting a couple of broken cookies I could live with that but every time I buy a packet is too much in my opinion
Hopping you can rectify this or I will be changing where I choose to shop
Not happy Jan..........
Visited Woolworths at Boksburg Retail Park like I usually do daily today,Friday 08/2018
Just needed doughnuts a beta tub of ice cream
Proceeded to pay at your 10 items or less cashier.
To my horror I find two people in front of me with a trophies full of merchandise.
Now why have you got a fast que?
After 25mins my chance comes to pay and I asked the cashier why does Woolworths allow anyone to pay at a fast que. Your cashiwrrtold me why don't I ask the customer myself why he came into that que with more than Ten Items???? THAT IS RUDE!!! I DO NOT WORK FOR WOOLWORTHS. IT'S NOT MY FAULT YOU HAVE INCOMPETENT STAFF.
I then called a manager. Portia. Just as use less and more rude than your cashier.
I will never spend Amy money at your store again. I used to do all my shopping which is good and groceries at your store. I SPEND APPRX R18000 MONTHLY AT YOUT STORE. NOT ANYMORE. I WILL RATHER GO TO CHECKERS FROM NOW ON.
For a so called up market store you are the pots and so are your staff. You have no capable management at your stores.
I own 20842 Woolworths shares and I will be bringing up your poor customer service and bad attitude at the AGM.
Shame on you! !!!
I took my own bags.On checking my docket later,I found I was charged for my own bag.I didnt need extra bags as I had some of my own I had taken in left over at the end after paying.for items
This is a complaint against kerry
(i had a simple enquiry)
and liam (Asking to speak with a supervisor)
who could possibly work at the same centre
Very distressing to be spoken to in such a rude way from both
I dont know if they are overworked or not having enough breaks or just dont like their jobs whatever the reason i wont tolerate rudeness from anyone
If im nice to them i expect the same in return to end up hanging up on the 1st call was bad enough but twice ? Talking so abrupt and rude to people is unacceptable on top of not even mentioning his name i had to ask for it
They have a way of getting people all fired up and the best thing is to hang up
I was having a wonderful day until i got on the phone to the call centre
It took a lovely lady from my local woolworths to calm me down
i was in tears
im always quick complimenting people but not today and not standing for rudeness from anyone anymore ever !
Woolworths supermarket Dingley Village, today at 10:30 AM. My wife approached the butcher counter to purchase a half leg of lamb. The butcher would not serve as he was on his way out of the section for a tea break!! He asked a lady from the bakery to assist but her knowledge of the meat was non-existent and she did not know how to cut a leg of lamb in half and was probably not qualified to do so. My wife left the store very angry and will purchase the meat at Lindens butchers at Southland.
Questions: Why couldn't the butcher show a bit of courtesy and serve a customer before his tea break?
When the butcher is on a break why isn't there a fully trained person available to assist customers?
Are your staff fully trained in customer service procedures and protocol?
We will never buy meat from this store again while this rude butcher is in attendance.
About 6 months ago I applied for another card through your Forest Hill branch as my card was no longer swiping due to old age.
I was told that my I.D number has changed which it has not to the best of my knowledge.
Anyhow, it seems that something happened as i had put my daughters telephone number down a I am hard of hearing, as they contact her now.
I have never received a card and have not bought on this account since and there has been a payment made by eft every month barring one which was made up for by an increased payment.
We now get harassed and threatened to be handed over on a regular basis when I would think there must be nothing owing on this account...oralmost nothing.
The amounts due vary vastly and the last one was over a thousand rands when the one before was four hundred and something and no purchases have been made onthis account since the applicationfor a new card.
My daughter filed a series of complaints to no avail and we comtinue to recieve incessant calls and threats to credit bureaus etc.
I have had this account for over thirty years and have never had a problem until i applied for another card and now
It has put such a bad taste in my mouth that I am going to close it.
Please send me statements for the last 6 months reflecting all payments tothis account so i can reconcile.
If you cannot produce them then the money has no longer been credited to this account and i suspect you have 2 accounts for one person as something was definitely processed as the contact details have been changed.
If you can produce them, and your figures are in fact correct then this card has been cloned by someone in woolworths as no purchases have been made whatsoever. We never recieved a replacement card.
I am beyond irritated.
I am sending this complaint again in the hope that it wont fall on deaf ears and please respond to this communication in writing as soon as possible.
I want to draw you attention to what may be a small scale, but regular scam, involving short changing, at your Fairy Meadow petrol station.
Today I bought $56.50 worth of petrol, paid $60.00 with three 20 dollar notes and received $1.50 in change.
The receipt said I paid $58.00
I understand that everyone makes mistake and the clerk apologized and said she made a mistake, but the nature of these numbers is suspect.
It cannot be a typo, as the 8 is nowhere near the 0.
It cannot be a brain “fart” i.e. thinking I paid with 2 twenties, 1 ten, a five and a two and a one (or three ones). That makes no sense.
And it is a secure way to steal from the till without it showing up as a shortage at the end of shift.
It is easy for you to check if this is a recurring event, by comparing if the “total” and the “cash” amounts make sense.
In my case for instance, $57.00 on the docket would have made sense, though $0.50 change would immediately have been noticed by everyone.
I don’t wish to get anyone fired, but I do think this issue should be investigated properly.
On the receipt:
Store 1873 pos 002 trans 1729 5988 13:16 22/04/18
My complaint is your lettuces are brown in Moorebank Woolworths yesterday I ask someone to let them know but I didn't see anyone tell them so I went back to see if they did anything and no they were brown and wet lettuces which it is terrible to sell to customer I like to make a complaint the way these lettuces were wet brown like rust around them all over the leaves etc. and they had the hid to sell this product not good enough in my books. It is terrible the way food is handled these days everything looks off and you are suppose to be the fresh food people not in this case.
I have been buying Homebrand and Gravox instant white and cheese ssauce packets for some years. In the last few weeks these have been unavailable at both stores I use (Bendigo and Strathdale. All that is available is Gravox Instant liquid sauce which is twice the price. I am not happy with this as I have used the other packets as part of my recipes for many years. Not happy. When will these be back in stock or will I have to buy that at Coles who still carry them.
Fairly disappointed in your customer service. I have two outstanding matters which Woolworths will not answer.
No. 1. Reference 9000231856. This matter has been going on since 26 March. Sent follow up email on 3rd April with no
response. Promised an e-gift card for inconvenience. Never arrived.
No 2. reference 9000216969 I ituated this complaint on 3 April. Sent follow on 6th April- no response.
You did respond to initial complaint with suggestions. I emailed straight back advising of change of address and I
asked a further question. You ignored my email. You ignored. You follow up email. Why?
In the interests of good customer service one would have thought the store manager would have made an effort to
contact me, but nothing. It was your staff that lost my reward card. Not me, it I have to do the running around.
I'm extremely disappointed in your select LAMB & Barley Soup.
The flavour was great, however it could hardly be legally advertised or labelled LAMB & Barley, as there was only 2 microscopic pieces of LAMB, with 8 large pieces of zucchini, 7 large pieces of potato & loads of barley.
I purchased woolworths oyster blade steak 15/04/18. Today being the 17/04/18 i cooked 2 steaks. Upon eating 90% of my meal i noticed a thin string like object hanging out of a piece i just cut into. I pulled it out and too my horror it was a WORM. After throwing up the meal i just ate i got my partner to take a photo of the disgusting creature. This is totally unacceptable. I expect a swift reply from woolworths.
About 6 months ago I purchased an Optus phone from Woolworths Bowral. I've been very happy with the phone until recently when the battery seemed to be going flat much quicker. I wasn't particularly concerned and drove down to Nowra to buy a replacement battery only to be told that the battery in the phone I bought cannot be replaced, but if I had a receipt they would replace the phone which has a 12 month guarantee. The problem is I no longer have the receipt so in essence I paid around $100.00 for a disposable phone. Do you honestly believe this is fair and why wasn't I informed at the time of purchase that the battery couldn't be replaced. As I stated at the beginning of this email, I'm very happy with the phone though clearly not with its life span nor the inadequate information regarding my purchase, had I known of the problem I would clearly have never purchased the phone and obviously I won't be buying another. I will be contacting the ombudsman about the issue though I imagine it will simply be a case of caveat emptor.
One the worst front end services supervisors all should be moved to other stores from supervisors to department mangers and mangers should not stay in one store for ever supervisors chatting as for head cashiers they know nothing as for payslips every week they wrong a big company like that
I have received promotional text messages before 7am WST
These text messages are annoying enough but at a time when people are trying to sleep is not acceptable. People have busy schedules and it shows a lac of consideration.
Furthermore, there is no option in the text message to opt out, which I am sure is against the law.
I do not want any promotional messages from your company again and especially at hours when people are trying to sleep. Pkease remove me from your list immediately. my number is 0400021087.
Yous are the worst company ever you sell crappy stuff and rip people off
Staff Complaint - I frequently shop at Woolworths weekly and had a rude deli staff member throw my cold/frankfurts at myself, I then went through the checkout (staff member- Gin and no greeting was given, extremely poor service by both staff members.
I have been shopping at Woolworths Maryborough Qld every Saturday morning for over 20 years now and in the last few months I have noticed that the fruit and vegetable section has gone downhill. Displays are half empty and in some cases completely empty. It is really disappointing to see this happen as your store is normally great. Your staff in the store are wonderful and I did mention my concerns to a staff member this morning and she was going to pass on my comments to the manager. I really don't want to start shopping at another supermarket but if it continues I may have to make that change.
I went and did my groceries on Tuesday 13/3/18 I was also looking at buying easter eggs . I was just about to grab some of the Cadbury solid eggs 440g when the young man filling them up said they are on for half price tomorrow, I thanked him and thought how nice of him to tell me. So I drove back out there this morning to find they are still $10.00. When I asked about it the lady said i just asked the manager of the department and he said no. I then saw him going around checking the tickets with another young man. I asked him about something else I was buying as they still had a $10.00 ticket and the lady told me they were $6.00 he scanned it and said yes they are $6.00 so I asked again about the soild eggs and told him about how I came back today as I was told they would be half price only to be made feel like an idiot and the guy that was with him laughed and said he probably thought he was at coles. How disgusting to treat a valued customer that way. I spend hundreds there every week. There was no sorry for driving back out and you were given the wrong information just a laugh and are you sure he was staff and he must of thought he was at coles. How bloody rude.Very disappointing. Its no new way to the way he treats his customers he did the same to me when i needed to purchase around 200 chocolates for table center piece and i asked him if they would match coles as they had theirs for $1 and he said no I can't do that you will have to get them there . I know I'm just one person and there are hundreds of people shopping there but shouldn't every customer that spends there be shown a bit of respect .
I went and did my groceries on Tuesday 13/3/18 I was also looking at buying easter eggs . I was just about to grab some of the Cadbury solid eggs 440g when the young man filling them up said they are on for half price tomorrow, I thanked him and thought how nice of him to tell me. So I drove back out there this morning to find they are still $10.00. When I asked about it the lady said i just asked the manager of the department and he said no. I then saw him going around checking the tickets with another young man. I asked him about something else I was buying as they still had a $10.00 ticket and the lady told me they were $6.00 he scanned it and said yes they are $6.00 so I asked again about the soild eggs and told him about how I came back today as I was told they would be half price only to be made feel like an idiot and the guy that was with him laughed and said he probably thought he was at coles. How disgusting to treat a valued customer that way. I spend hundreds there every week.

I have always shopped at Woolies Port Augusta.Even helpded build the store.There is one manager,Belinda Davis.Who in my opinion needs to through more customer training.To learn how to be nice to Woolworths customers.
One instident I had with her a few weeks ago,about the price leg ham.
When I complained to her,Belinda put both her hands to her head and said I need this fucking shit this early in day.
My answer was maybe you get out the kitchen if you cant handle the heat.
Today,Belinda was very abrupt and aragant too me.
I know almost every employee in that store,and get along fine.
Thank you for your time.I would hate too have too shop at Coles.
Hi Dear customer service
on sat am at 8 0'clock I had brought a pane de cassa bread. My family and myself were having breakfast , while eating I bit on something very hard and my tooth broke . I checked on what it and to my surprise found a small piece of ?plastic or ?metal . I would like you to investigate this. I am in severe pain my dentist appt is on Friday
I was given a pair of Fresh Water pearl stud earrings price R120.00. As I had the identical pair already I went to The Glen branch to exchange for a set of three different coloured pearl drop earrings(on Wednesday 7th February) extra R60.00 which I would gladly pay.
The cashier advised me that they do not exchange earrings. But her manner was totally surly and never apologetic very unfriendly and aloof manner. I told her that I had previously exchanged earrings with no problem. She called a supervisor who in turn called for a manager who was as rude and arrogant as the cashier - never was I greeted or apologies given for the inconvenience. When I showed the manager the earrings had not even been taken off the card and I further told her that I have exchanged earrings before - she looked at me rudely and replied "if I exchange these now, you will be back to exchange them again"
I take great exception to been spoken to like this as I am a senior citizen of 69 years old and a customer. I could not believe I had been treated like this by Woolworths staff. I explained to the three staff members that it is because of service like this and bad treatment
that the Woolworths shares are dropping at a great rate and they are lucky the Food Division of the Woolworths Stores are still doing fine otherwise they would be out of a job.
I bought this onions saturday 27th january at woolworths vredenburg weskus mall. Im so disapointed in opening the product and find the onions like this. I am trying to go back to the woolworths to get full refund or new product. This is un acceptable especially if you buy this expensive food quality.
Ever since this store opened at Wynnum Qld there has never been anything but poor service on the fish counter. They expect the staff to run over from the deli counter to serve you, that is if the staff deign to notice you. The staff at the front desk are run of their feet due to lack of staff at this store. You want to make a complaint and the answer is THE MANAGEMENT ARE AT A MEETING. The management need to get of their collective arses and get down stairs and see the chaos going on and help give the customers some service.
Every time we shop at Woolworths Morwell since they have had the front end done up we find that there is never any one on the cash registers to serve We have to go around the store and ask for someone to serve us This is the poorest service I have ever had If you want people to serve themselves forget it If things do not change in this store I and many other people I have spoken to will leave this store as there are many other supermarkets to choose from in this area This store used to have great service
Regards Frank Ellesley
Many indigenous customers inside your store at Port Augusta SA, stink. There's no polite way to put this - they smell of shit, and it's a very off-putting experience for me and probably other shoppers as well. I prefer to visit Woolworths, but the problem is so bad that I'm sometimes driven to shop at Coles, which generally has fewer dirty Abos hanging around.
I have just managed to eat the Massman Beef Curry which I think is a Woolworths Brand . I have to tell you it was disgusting.
Not since the 60's have I tasted such rubbish. Half Rice, and the rest like the worst stew that I would not serve to anyone.
Wanted to buy a half leg ham, but no price on it. Took it to desk waited no help went to checkout they called whoever. Came took away 5 mins later price as a customer one shouldn’t have to chase around store for a price. No I didn’t buy it. Went to Coles got service there. This store used to be okay,but not these days.
Homophobic staff vilified me as a member who was also encouraging a member of the public(friend) to also engage on this behavior. This violates your staff code of ethics. When I complained to the manager she told me that she was gay and had no problems from staff. Implying that i was making it up about staff treating me differently. She told me that she would get back to me that afternoon and i am still waiting to hear from her 5 days later. This is professional mismanagement from your manager and the Woolworths corporate team should hear of this. I managed to get a photo of the customer but the staff member quickly ran out the back of the store.
I am a senior with little money, but i started to collect dominoes. I was told today that the promotion is ended. The promotion is said to go from 4th March to 14th April, it is only the 7th April today, our store in Wellard has not had any dominoes for at least 2 weeks, and i still need 16 to complete the set of 44. I purchased the collector box but now can't fill it, shame on you Woolies.
I am very upset that I got email from Woolworths saying that my email had won a $1000 voucher to spend in store. I had to make a phone call go number and enter to claim. But it wanted a survey. I just hung up, a big wast of time. It was so upsetting because it gets your hopes up and it is a big take. why tell people that they have won and then let them down.
I have a major concern about the Queanbeyan Woolworths. I have had a gut full of complaining to them they look at me as if I’m dumb and try to tell me they are unaware of the times. On the 3/10/16 a public holiday the trucks came in at 6:30 am this is totally unacceptable I work five days a week and enjoy my sleep ins. This has been happening so many times I am just sick of complaining to them and they do nothing but continue to not stick their opening and closing times. I really hope you can sort this out. Today the truck reversed in at 5am though they opened the roller doors at 5:55 they have to make the trucks wait at the gate and not reverse around the side of the building. Also the sign has no limit on when it can open on a Saturday please let me know what are the hours on a Saturday.
I am disgusted at the amount of money I pay for your so called fresh food, for it either to be shocking the day I buy it, or for it to look okay in the shop and then the next day it is rotten. Yesterday I bought a few bananas, and went to eat one today, only to find it was all mushy and rotten (even though it had been firm the day before). It took less than 24 hours for it to be rotten. This is not the first time. I buy lettuce very regularly, and every single time, the price is ridiculously high, and the lettuce is tiny!!! once you take away the bitter leaves of the lettuce, hardly anything is left. I cannot believe it costs that much for the tiny vegetable. Another fruit I am very displeased about is the apples. For months pink lady apples were terrible and bruised and flavourless! I decided to start buying granny smiths but then they began to have mould growing inside them, and I wouldn't find out until I cut it open. I have wasted so much money on your products and I am sick of this so called freshness. It is not fresh at all and Woolworths need to fix this. If you don't do anything about this, make a new slogan, because that is false advertising!
I went shopping on Friday 22nd January at 7.30am to Woolworths Richmond NSW. After I had purchased all my fruit & vegetables I headed to the deli section to buy some ham, there was no-one around to serve me but I noticed a woman off to the side of the deli section who was placing chickens in bags.
She was not wearing gloves though she was using tongs to place the chickens into the bags. I then witnessed this same woman tearing off bits of the cooked chicken & placing those bits in her mouth then licking her fingers before placing the chicken into the bag. I witnessed her do this with not just one chicken but three (3). I will NEVER be buying any cooked chickens from this store again. Had I not been so horrified I would have thought to film her behavior. If you wish to contact me regarding this my phone number.
Today I received my online order and all my cold stuff was off. I contacted the online department and they have issued me a refund on the off items. I had been ordering on line for a while up until a few months ago when every time that I would get me order the cold items never felt cold enough, so I thought I would try again as it is convenient for my family, unfortunately it will be the last time I will be using it as even though a refund has been given I now need to go to my local woollies which by the way I dislike going to as there is never anything on the shelves and never enough staff working and we seem to get all the crap when it comes to fruit and veg.
I really think that you need to look at the cold side of your trucks or make sure that all the cold stuff is kept in a refrigerated compartment in the truck. I have added the photo of the milk carton when it was received it was blown up (the way they go when they are off) the photo isn't very clear but you can see that it isn't the same as the other one, all the chicken was very smelling. I think if nothing is done about this problem you may end up making a lot of people sick.
I purchase the Classic Marinated Roast Beef on a semi-regular basis and usually find that the cut of meat is a silver-side roast. However on carving a rather large roast tonight, I found it to be not one cut but a collection of off cuts 'glued' / welded and rolled together. This was obvious by the meat grains heading off in all directions plus encasing an extremely large amount of fat in the center of same. Looks like my expensive roast was a collection of the cutting bench leftovers netted together. Extremely disappointed Woolworths.
In the morning around 9 o'clock 28 August 2016 I went shopping in Woolworths Cabramatta, I went in with the chemist I purchased two days ago from Chemist Warehouse because I wanted to post overseas. I did not notice the sigh at the entry. When I checked out the shop manager asked me to show her the docket. I showed her the docket but she confiscated four items, I said they are all on the docket list, I showed her then she returned one to me, I said there were two dockets the remaining three items on the other dockets, but she said, "I don't care". I called police and showed the other docket to the security then I got my items back. I by mistake brought my staff into the shop without notifying them but she did not want to resolve the problems but we ran into big argument. She and the front desk lady manager are not fit for their positions. I was very angry by the way they handled the problem.
We had a problem with Masters regarding a return I wont go in great detail.We considered we were right so sent letters to managers of Woolworths head office in Brisbane and Melbourne some 2 weeks ago.Got a call from Brisbane from some one that had no interest in what we were saying and asked were should he send the letter. Nothing from Melbourne it appears that they don't even reply to good customers. The upshot was unless this problem was fixed in some way we would not be shopping in any Woolworths stores the value was $34-00 so that was not the point. How ever Masters finally fixed the problem but as both head offices showed no interest in our complaint and one did not respond Coles is now our shop in both food and fuel.
My self and quite a few other customers were looking for a certain Easter egg, that was in a Woolworths catalogue witch was due to start on Wednesday the 1st of April 2015. That is today and todays date. We approached a Woolworths staff person and asked where we could find them,( Woolworths select chocolate hollow bunny 125gr 90C each ), she then told us they went on sale yesterday, yesterday was Tuesday the 31st of March, and that they had sold out at 10am, this is false advertisement, there was quite a lot of upset and hurt people, I then went to the check out to get my purchases, asked for the dominoes that I am collecting and was told they had no more left and weren't getting anymore in. I am very disappointed with Woolworths, as I haven't got all the dominos ,I paid $5 for the album to put my dominos in now cant fill it I have around 60 domino that are all the same, the same thing happened with my Shrek. I no longer have faith in Woolworths and I will let all my face book friends and family know, I also am considering on going to another supermarket that don't have false advertisement. I am a very unhappy customer,
I am a lacto vegetarian but our household also eats seafood. Because we have no shops within many kilometres I buy frozen prawns, squid and fish in multi kg packs. Often two or more if on special. I ask sales assistants if they have larger packs out the back not "thawed for you convenience" as those are useless to me. These packs clearly state Nett Weight which of course means dry weight before packaging.
In the past your assistants weighed a package marked 5 kg Nett Weight and tried to charge me up to $16 extra for packaging weight. Most staff including many managers were (and still are) oblivious to meaning of Nett Weight. This often caused embarrassment to me in front of waiting customers when I stood my ground against being ripped off. I was told one time to "take it or leave it". Some offered to unpack the contents from its thick double plastic, cardboard box and strapping which I prefer remain intact to ensure more secure freezing at home. Even when unpacked they would charge me 0.2 or 0.3 kg extra for the accumulated ice crystals. I accepted this extra charge frequently through sheer necessity.
I complained to you over 8 years ago that I was being regularly overcharged for these bulk frozen seafood. I was sent an apology and voucher with assurance the problem was fully rectified and would never happen again.
It did though and often. Then I stopped using Woolworths altogether for some years after finding new Manager at local Windsor store to be an extremely arrogant, very tall football type bully. I had asked to see him after still being overcharged repeatedly he said he had never heard of any such directive from above on this subject and that I was talking nonsense when I pointed out consumer affairs had imposed huge fine on Costi Seafoods for similar practices. I didn't go back there and made sure friends etc online were aware of the Woolworth's malpractice. I found many other Woolworths stores to have the same problem on our holidays in QLD, VIC, ACT and other areas of NSW.
I recently went to Windsor store again and encountered same problem but didn't call manager. Explained again to staff the meaning of Nett Weight and described previous manager behaviour. Shocked and said they didn't remember one fitting description. They then used five I kg packages of dried goods in place of Box of prawns. Label was still about 4% heavier than 5 kg net shown due plastic wrappers, but I paid.
I suggested previously that you need to better train staff and supply a set of 1 2 & 5 kg weights for complete accuracy on pre packaged goods. Our lost custom over past few years would have paid for a gold plated set. It would be less expensive than loosing so many customers. I will be copying this complaint to consumer affairs as it really annoys me that you still let this unfair practice continue after so many years.
I am writing to inform you of an item that was listed in your catalog that went on sale on Wednesday 28 October 2015 page 11, it mentioned that when you purchased zooper dooper cosmic flavors 24 pack you would get 2 free tube holders, when I purchased this item on the 28 October 2015 at the Woolworth's Bega Store I asked about this offer and they informed me that they did not receive these items, then 2 days later I entered the Tura Beach Woolworth's store to again be told that they did not receive this item, my disappointment was that my children were quite excited to get these tube holders and to be told by 2 stores that they were not available was not good enough that is why I am sending this email, I don't normally complain however in this instance I have a sound reason to, firstly for the advertisement in your brochure that took up half a page and really stood out and secondly not even being informed that someone would look into this for me, we shop at Woolworth's department stores all the time and purchase quite a lot of zooper doopers especially over summer so I would like an explanation as to why you would advertise an item for 'FREE' and not provide it. I look forward to receiving an explanation, what would you like me to tell my children?
I am really ticked off. I went out of my way to do my shopping at Woolworths today in order to collect Domino's in the hope of getting the ones that my little cousin is missing. We have managed to collect a full set for my grandson. I thought "Great" now I can shop wherever! What? NO DOMINOS! NOT HAPPY. I asked if I would be able to claim them when they came in. The young girl just shrugged and said "Keep your receipt - jut in case" - Just in case? What does that mean? I wouldn't have minded had I been warned before entering the store. A sign would have been nice. All the promotional crap is still on display. NOT GOOD. I wont be falling for your "Collect some more junk" promotions again. I know I sound nasty but I am really annoyed. Thank you for taking the time to read my gripe. Normally I would have given the Carousel store a 5 star rating BUT not today.
Sorry Woolies I am getting sick of the quality of meat that is being provided, tonight it was round steak that when I was cooking it produced a full 250ml of water, yes I measured it. Once a week its the skinless chicken breast, I buy 1 and half kg that I still have to get skin off, cut out gristle, cartilage and veins, losing about half a kilo in the process. The whole reason I chose to buy the skinless breast chicken is so I don't have to do this as I am a busy mum. I have taken photographs to support my complaint. It's not good enough, I really think its time you look out your outside distributor of your meat and poultry products as if the standard does not change I will be forced to shop else where for these products just as many people already are.
We shop at Woolworths for several reason mostly due to the kids wanting to collected what ever is being given when you spend spend and spend some more. The last week you have no dominos to give in any store. If you have kids you would know what its like and the disappointment on their face. UP YOUR GAME WOOLIES!
My wife is disabled and wheel chair bound over past 4 years we have shopped at your business in Legana and always have found difficulty getting through this stores check-outs. Today, Thursday 8th September 2016 near to midday I had cause to walk away from check-out leaving our basket of groceries on counter. My reasons for this are two-fold-- firstly the operator of this particular checkout disregarded my wife and self to continue to inform another customer on shopper application form rather than direct this person to the Information desk.
Secondly because aisles are narrow between opposite checkouts there is not enough room for my wife's wheelchair and the other customer's trolley hence this other customer became abusive towards my wife. Sorry you pick on my wife you pick on me for my darling wife did not ask to be disabled-- so understandable I became irate and leaving our basket of purchases on the counter I walked out pushing my wife from your store vowing to never return. After further discussion with Woolworths Legana senior staff we, that is my wife, Myra, we re-entered your store and purchased previous selected articles leaving store thanking Senior Staff.
This not the first time we have had this problem in this particular store over the past four years. I am 80 and my is 76, I am my wife's Government designated carer. This world is for all- the young--the old and the able and disabled. I am a Doctor.
Today I went to my local Woolworths here in Colac and decided to get a blue swimmer crab based on the emphasis that they were advertised as FRESH. To me, for crab to be fresh it means it must have come in that mornings delivery. I asked the girl serving I she could confirm when they arrived. She couldn't nor could anyone else begin the counter.
Being such a precious and possibly volatile creature, I just presumed Woolworths would serve FRESH if the description said fresh and given the lack of knowledge behind the counter I decided to trust your brand and its protocols and buy. I also got some marinara mix and was set to have a feast with a couple of friends for dinner. When it came to taking it out of the wrapper it REEKED of a gnarly rancid fish smell.
I knew it was bad but I continued to see just how bad. Taking the back plate off I noticed the tell tale black lines around the edges of all the shell compartments. I took off the plate and instead of a delicious pink and firm liver etc it was black...black and runny with green slimy throughout. It was one of the most foul and disgusting thing my worldy eyes and nose have had the misfortune to meet. Needless to say, there was no dinner. Once everyone helped me clean that up, no one was game to eat the marinara or anything at all from my kitchen tonight.
Blue swimmer crabs are a rare thing here and that's why I wanted that little bit of crab meat in my dish. And might I say, when the marinara was unwrapped, although it didnt stink, the mussels had been sitting around in the fish juices so long they literally disintegrated between my fingers. I cannot express to you how disappointed and embarrassed I was. And can I add, this is not the first time. There is seriously something going wrong in that fish department. I have had to bring back prawns and fish fillets for similar reasons.
Frankly, I'm done with the fish dept. at Colac Woolworths. I bought these today in the late morning. Someone should have checked them for I they did, they wouldn't have been able to put them out. Is it the lack of knowledge of staff to identify the tell tale signs of bad shellfish? Are they educated about smell, black lines, grey meat? Is it a temperature problem in the case? Who's checking it every day, a few times a day especially in these successive hot days? Is it delivery refrigeration?
Is it laziness in getting it out of the truck? All these are possible factors and considering it happens more often than anywhere else in the store, it really should be looked into. Meanwhile, I have had a crap night thanks to this scenario and as I said, thats it for me. One loyal customer exiting the fish deot post haste. Thanks for taking the time out to read this and I look forward to some kind of response soon. Kind regards, Denise. (photos attached)
I Shopped at Canterbury gardens Woolworths in Melbournes outer eastern suburbs the other day and purchased a 2kg pack (24) of the WW barbecue thin sausages. I have been buying these for over 20 years and a loyal customer of yours for over 40. In the last month at two different stores the quality has been discgracefull. Dry, tasteless and hard, obviously something has changed. If so will this be an ongoing thing? Would quite happily do my shopping elsewhere if this continues.
My complaint with Woolworths Store in Kelmscott, Western Australia is firstly the amount of choice is very limited (other customers agree and have "moved on" to other outlets, the meat is thoroughly tasteless and tough! Secondly, your recent Dominoes promotion I have dutifully spent, to gain the dominoes for my grandchildren. Last week, I should have received 11 dominoes, but was told, the store was "out" and the cashier signed the receipt and said, try and redeem them next week - good naturedly I accepted this, only to be dismayed this week - the receipt says I should have a further 6 dominoes (total 17) but the cashier said "all finished, no dominoes - see they are swapping outside the store"....
I went to the service desk and asked for this complaint to be escalated to the Manager, the operator was red faced and said, there was nothing to be done (although she did offer to call the Manager, which I declined) - as no dominoes available!!. I replied that Woolworths have made a "killing" out of this promotion, what with the parents and grandparents spending to get the dominoes, plus, buying the merchandise and this in a way was false advertising on Woolworths part and that this always happens and people will get well and truly disillusioned with the promotions and vote with their feet as many have already. Why is the Kelmscott store being downgraded in oh, so many ways?
I have worked for Woolworths for 7 years, I finally decided to quit. When I first started I enjoyed the job, however in the past maybe 3 years, it has been a nightmare. Budget cuts occur so frequently, leaving people with less hours and full and part-timers being bullied into taking annual leave and even going home sick as annual leave and sick pay are apparently not paid with the stores weekly budget. Managers are so mental unstable, they would cut your hours and then expect you to stay back in your own time and not take paid teabreaks. The company would treat you like crap, but then expect you to give back so much. Hence why the store aisles always look like absolute crap, aisles used to be completely faced, nowadays may one or two aisles would get faced.
Also the company treating there employees like sh**, does make the employees feel happy and hence why the customer service is never there, and if you do get decent customer service at woolworths, you must have donated a limb or something. woolworths no longer give a crap about there employees and the SDA union is absoutely useless they wont even stand up for you, they have no balls. I now refuse to shop at woolworths or coles, i would prefer to go to foodland and pay the extra $20 a week on groceries than support, what should be classified as worse than the nazi's. I will never step one food into a woolworths store, unless i could was allowed to use my force inside the shop. I urge people who want customer service and who do not want to be raped later, when all the independent people have shut down and woolies and coles are the only supermarkets left.
I have heard of atleast 7 managers walking out on the job over the last 6 months, and others are desperately seeking other employment. no longer are employees treated as a person, they are treated like a number, as woolworths know they can fire you, and have somebody else, waiting to be employeed. it is an absolute disgrace, it is certainly not australian, its sounds like a dictatorship to me.
Treat your staff better, treat your customers better, don't try and hush your staff up about the poor condition of your meat, don't leave pallets of chicken mince out in the sun on there own. Pick up your game Woolworths.
if you spend over 20 dollars you get the latest dinosaur cards, but not if you spend at the cigarette counter...your refused because you smoke, your made to feel like your scum..its ok for them to sell the product and to take your money and make a profit but you are not allowed the rights as other customers. This is discrimination and they deserve to be taken to court over this matter, this was at he Moe store and every local gippsland paper is going to hear about this. Woolworths you are a greedy disgusting company, it is not illegal to smoke or to sell the products so you have no right to humiliate and degrade people who have spent money in your store, my money is as good as the next persons and you take it readily, there is now a small boy who hates you as much as I do......I will not let this matter drop.
Bought your so called scotch fillet steak, we could not eat it. I am an excellent chef, but this steak was appalling. Your butcher at the Busselton store should be reprimanded over this. All the steak is good for is cooking it up for the dog, if he is able to chew it. A response would be appreciated but from what I have read I will not hold my breath. I very rarely shop at Woolworths as I find all your products very expensive. Love Coles real value and good customer service.
I haven been a Woolworth customer for many years. My complaint is about the dominos folder. I have been asking at the store for about 5 weeks to buy one and they keep on telling next week next week. Now 2 days ago I was told that they don't not have any more and won't be getting any in, so now I have a very upset child as she doesn't have a folder to put them in. It has cost a fortune trying to collect all of them, and now have nowhere to keep them. If Woolworth is going to do something like this they should make sure that they make enough! You cannot advertise one thing and then you don't supply, very disappointed.
I have been a loyal customer to Woolworths, to the Ararat Woolworths, for over a decade and so have many of my friends and family. Lately in the past few weeks and months, every time I go in there it is filthy. Every department looks horrible, shelves are empty and not everyone but a very large majority of staff particularly management, their uniforms are so dirty and they absolutely stink. It has come to my attention and also to my friends and family that shop here and also to many other customers that shop there, the assistant store manager Chris is an absolute asshole. He knows nothing about customer service and how to treat people. His loudness really makes everyone feel so uncomfortable and he disrespects and insults his own staff whilst there are customers around him. Is this the professionalism of a manager that works at Woolworths? He likes to verbally belittle, bully and harass his staff and also a lot of great workers have left because of that asshole! He also swears a lot too especially in front of customers! When customers ask him something he just gives the shortest and blunt answer and the customer walks away regretting that they asked him something in the first place. There are many many wrong things I have seen him do, there is too many too list so I can't name them all.
Everyone is sick of him and all this bullshit with him it is happening too much lately and he acts all smart-ass to whatever is asked to him and he acts like he owns the entire woolworths company. Now as I said I have been a loyal customer for well over a decade and I spend at the very least $400 a week and my friends and family each spend a lot more than that a week. Now because of this asshole, everyone i know and myself who shop there regularly, will no longer never ever again go into Ararat Woolworths. We're all just going to go somewhere else like IGA or Aldi, there's plenty other supermarkets here and I will be telling other people also to not go and shop there at the Woolworths. Because of 1 germ, you are losing hundreds of customers and tens of thousands of dollars. And there are so many other people I know that hate him and wont shop there and won't go in there purely because he is there. Now because i shop there very regularly (not anymore) i would easily notice when something in the staff is different, it is easily noticeable when the staff and particularly the managers work harder because then straight away all the customers know that the higher bosses of this store are coming and they're trying to make it look good so they can cover their asses and make it look as if they're doing something.
If my complaint gets read by somebody important and by somebody who actually cares about the Woolworths store in Ararat and also for the future of this store then please as a higher managers DO NOT tell them when you guys are coming! Just come unexpectedly without notice and then you will see the true face of the store and how rubbish the store truly looks and you will see what we as customers walk into everyday. It is not alright for that prick to bully his staff, let alone do it in front of customers. I don't understand whether he gets enjoyment from that because he seems really mentally sick and fucked in the head. Please, somebody has to do something about him because he is absolutely fucking up that stores image and giving the Ararat Woolworths a shit name. Please no one go and shop in that store.
Went into Woolworths to get some dinner however no stock of soup. Your Breyani, told me the delivery did not take place. Ended up buying the Durban style chicken curry.
How disgusting! The potatoes were hard, and there were so much tomatoes. Terrible! Cannot believe Woolworth's would approve such a product. Woolworth's needs to be better at deciphering what products they keep on their shelves!
Yesterday at approximately 5pm I bought a bbq chicken which had been put out at 3.50pm. Store 1063 cost $11 barcode 0270149 011 001. I cut the chicken about 5.45pm, it was not fully cooked and the flesh was pink. Put in my oven at 180 degrees for 35 minutes until it reached 87 degrees C on my thermometer (the recommended temperature for chicken). I think the oven at your Forest Way store needs the temperature checked to make sure it is accurate and/or lengthen the cooking time to ensure that the chickens are properly cooked. Not impressed.
I am currently still awaiting the 'promised' call from the 6 July 2016 from the Business Team for Woolworths Supermarkets since a carton of milk leaked all throughout the boot of my car on the 5 July 2016. I have since made 3 more calls to the Contact Centre but to no avail. What is their problem? Such a big Corporation but with such poor communication skills. Has anyone out there experienced the same experience from Woolworths Supermarkets? If I could give them 0 stars on this site I would for sure.
I purchased some items at the Seadoone Mall store in Doonside KZN. I presented my account card to the cashier who subsequently rang all the items up and once complete she handed me my slip and said I was not required to sign and I could go. I found this rather strange as the option of using a pin number is not available and she did not know whether I was actually the account card holder. I asked her since when the procedure had changed and that how did she know it was me. I could be anyone . She did not reply but began a frantic search around her . She could see I was not going to leave so I asked her again as to when the procedure had changed, She finally replied that it had not changed. So I once again asked her why she told me I did not need to sign?
She finally answered and said that she did not have a pen whereafter she suddenly produced one for me to use. I asked for the Manager of the store and the cashier pointed to a lady that was on the phone behind her. I waited for quite awhile and her phone call never ended nor did she acknowledge my presence. It appeared as if she was busy with a personal call. This store has not offered the service that they used to when I first moved to KZN which is only two years ago.
Often they have no stock of items and long life milk for sale is normally very close to the expiry date and the packaging is damaged in some way or another. Normally handles are not able to be used or box itself is soft and damaged. I am continuously asked whether they can raise limits and am a very loyal customer. However when the client becomes a hinderance to the employees then I guess its time to move to a different retail store that offers quality and friendly service. Very dissatisfied with this shopping experience to say the least.
I am sending this as I can't afford to keep throwing out food that I have purchased from various stores in Brisbane only to take it home and it being off. I purchased about 3 weeks ago yogurt from your Cannon Hill store and when I went to eat 1 of the 6 pack the next day it had a very funny taste to it so I threw that one out. I opened a second one and the same taste to it as well. I purchased 2 x 6 packs of yogurt ( different varieties) from your Park Ridge store on the weekend and I have had to throw out one lot of the 6 pack as this had curdled. I didn't ring the store as I had already thrown out the receipt. I have shopped at Woolworths for years and would like to continue but as I said in my first sentence I can't afford to keep throwing it out at $5 a pack. This adds up over time.
I want to share my frustration - I have a Coles within walking distance to me in Cranbourne, however as my 4 year old is in to the new Disney Dominos so I had to drive out of my way, battle for a car park only to find out when I finish at the checkout that the store has no dominos.....if you are going to run a promo like this make sure you have stock. The staff couldn't give two hoots, some customer service would be nice....sorry we are out but keep your docket and come back when we have more would have been enough...but NO.
I then had to deal with a 4 year old tantum for the next 20 minutes as he had been waiting all week for these. Not only that most things I purchased I could have got cheaper at Coles. This may be a minor thing that you wont take any notice of, but let me tell you I will be thinking twice before going out of my way to shop at one of your stores.
Very disappointed customer!
On Saturday evening we stopped at woolies seven hills to pick a a handful of groceries. At the express checkout we were distracted because the girl who should have been monitoring this section had wandered off. We wanted our dominoes we collect for our grandson. To this we left two items in a bag at the express checkout. We went home noticed drove all the way back. The girl on the service desk probably the service manager on duty told me I had not left the groceries. How dare she brush me aside we did not drive all the way back for no reason. The other girl said too bad nothing she could do. Now I know it's not your fault we left the bag but if the girl was in position she may have noticed. Obviously someone took it. To be dismissed like I am lying is such bad customer service. These people are the face of woolworths. We have shopped in that store for 36 years. Probably going to aldi or coles now in the same centre. Train your staff with good customer service skills. Very disappointed and probably not coming back to your store!
Hello I shop for 2 families and spend heaps at this store as u would see with my orange card which I do not use half the time but it will give you some idea.I also shop at coles and aldis so I spend $$$s.I never get any of the promo but today I was so upset with Miller staff I wont be shopping in woothworthless again.You have lost a good customer and others that use this shop will no longer shop there.This may sound petty but this annoyed me to the max.I went today to miller at the checkout a lady in berka was being served she bought a small amount of items 4 items or so and the checkout lady gave her change and a handful of the dominos the lady was very grateful.I bought $100 worth of shopping got asked at payment if I wanted the dominos and for the first time ever I said yes that would be nice and she handed me 4 after I SAW HER GIVE A LARGE HANDFUL.I stood there and thought that's not fair I went and asked 2 girls at the cigs counter one I was told was the manager and all she was interested in was who the person was .There was only 2 on the checkout.You would think they would be obliging and say positive things instead they where like big deal she gave heaps to other and u 4 keep your orange card and the staff at miller are pathetic lazy and dirty shop.Aldis is my new shop now.
The so called "FRESH FOOD PEOPLE" slogan is NON EXISTANT!! Especially when it comes to the fruit! I have been shopping at the Chullora branch for over 10 years and rather than improving, it is getting worse and worse. In the past 5 weeks I have been buying royal gala apples as they are supposed to be in season. Now by being in season you would think the apples would be hard and crisp but this is not the case. 2 out of 5 apples that I have been buying are absolute CRAP! They are chalky mushy and tasteless! its as though they have been frozen then thawed out. This has also happened to me previously with the Pink lady apples. To me, this is false advertising as there is nothing "FRESH" about a frozen and then thawed out apple. I am sick to death of getting ripped off by this very large company! and I will not be buying anymore fruit and veg from woolworths anymore. They should also call themselves THE FROZEN FOOD PEOPLE!
I was in the store early Monday morning on my way to work and I noticed that one of the female employees in the front desk with blonde hair
was very rude and abrupt towards another female employee. It was very unprofessional and made me feel uncomf0rtable while i was doing my shopping. She has served me on numerous occassions and it seems to me like her attitude to her work is giving a negative vibe to the woolworths brand. Since this person is behind the front desk she should always look and act professional towards her employees and customers.
I went into Cumberland Park, SA Woolworths yesterday to buy groceries and tobacco. I requested a pouch of JPS tobacco at the checkout and paid by card. I was in a hurry and foolishly, neglected to check docket while still in store. Once home I opened the tobacco and realized it was a very similar packet but not the JPS I had requested but was Winfield. Consequently I had been charged an extra $5 and could not return because it was opened already.. I am an older, single woman on Newstart. Money is short and I can do without service staff who pay no real attention to what you ask for. It is only a week since I had to return to that supermarket for a refund because I had been incorrectly charged. I can only hope your people actually read this at least but I don't actually believe anything comes of making a complaint.
On paying for petrol, I presented my Amex card and was not advised that this now carries a surcharge, a fact I only discovered later on checking the till slip. My complaint therefore is twofold, a) that a surcharge was levied and b) that I was not informed that this would occur.
The Kalamunda branch of Woolworths has a problem with shopping trolley collection. On occasions, at least once per day, the trolleys are left all over the car park in a most random, untidy and bogan manner. The effect of this is to prevent people (customers), from being able to park to go shopping. It is also impossible to walk along the paved area due to the number of trolleys simply left there. The effect of this is to deter both myself and other customers from entering Woolworths in order to spend money.
I now do the bulk of my shopping at Coles which is approx 2 km away. It appears that the old saying that the customer is always right has disappeared and has been replaced with the need and greed associated with today's larger businesses. It should possibly be remembered that the customers actually pay Woolworths and your business advisors don't. Indeed, it is suspected that Woolworths pay their advisors (possibly lawyers and accountants) reasonably large amounts. At the end of the day, do you listen to your customers or ignore them and listen only to your paid staff ?
Hi my complaint is with Woolworths Nowra in Stockland. Every time over the last month there has been a mistake on my docket and every time a get a grumpy girl with a false smile if a smile at all making be feel like Iam cheap for complaining.
You have to remember this is all in the last month I am disabled so waiting every time hurts. It is never less then a 5 minute wait today 15 minutes. First time scale were out so my shop come to nearly 100.00 dollars more. My water melon was over 50 dollars tomatoes 25.00 and so on. They refunded me after re-weighing every item then charging the right price.
Next my husband buys 3 boxes of Pepsi max get charged over 90 dollars they have a sign on saying 15 a box. They refund then recharge. Freddo frogs got charged full price for each four packet's this time refund with a packet for free. bbq chips maxi got charged over 3.50 a packet but on sale for 2,15 got refund and one packet for free. Tin of milo this time was on sale for 8.00 got charged over 10 dollars.
12 pack of pepsi max got charged 15.00 a packet price was 5.90 got refund. I have always shopped at Woolworths but am getting stressed what if I am missing some I am on a pension and every cent counts and what of all the others out there getting ripped off. When I go back to get my money they should show more respect and not make me feel so bad about it yours sincerely a very unhappy family that shops at Woolworths
I have an in store card with Woolworths and I fully paid the account. Also wanted them to remove my name on credit betray and to close the account. I paid R1500 via EFT only to find out that I was owing 1370. I was promised by Woolworths that they will reverse the difference on my account I sent the statement to them it's been more than 2 weeks with no response. I'm very disappointed with bad service from Woolworths
See Woolworths are considering putting off 400 staff a couple of suggestions to maybe avoid this 1. Out of stocks you cannot sell blank shelves, my local Woolworths Hermit Park Qld is a great location but poor stock control 2.Have stores do an out of stock report daily and send to HO you will see problems we face. 3. Get the Managers on the floor especially at checkouts occasionally to watch how the customers suffer with poor staffing at registers 4. Side stack and off location displays put fast moving stock in these areas not slow movers to relieve the shelf holdings. But no stock on shelves is the biggest problem.
I have been collecting domino stars from my local Woolworths store and now find that the promotion has come to an end. My daughter is 9 short of the full collection,she also has over fifty domino's from the same collection. We were told over a month ago to keep our till receipts and we would receive domino's when they next became available. My daughter is heartbroken and i am disappointed to say the least. I understand that promotions have to end sometime but to get so many of the same domino's and for promotion not to last long has made it impossible to collect them all. Needless to say i will not take part in any future promotions should i choose to shop in Woolworths in future.
You are Woolworthless. I am totally offended by you using Anzacs in a marketing campaign that up you claim is not marketing- it has your branding all over it. Tasteless, crass, disrespectful and totally unaustralian. Marketing gone sick!
This complaint is in regards to the everyday rewards $30 offer. I followed the steps correctly even though it would have been easier and a lot less travel to shop at the local IGA yet I still have not received the $30. If Woolworths were not able to honour this offer in the time they specified they should not have done it at all. Very disappointed
for the last two weeks grocery shopping at many Canberra woolworths store the dominos have not been there.. You hype up the kids with the dominos lure and yet when i shop they r not there for the promos..buying items that guarantee an extra..or the staff don't offer and u have to ask or they run out all together. Lanyon are the only store that seem to have any and they won't accept dockets from other woollies stores. I have foster care children and grandchildren. It's hard enough collecting for them all 4 in total but when the stores run out the kids are devastated. Really really disappointed with this promo. It's been a nightmare.
A manager, Sam is his name could not exchange a pair of boots for my son because of a dirty sole on one of the boot. The boot is in good condition but the sole on one boot and I am not even sure if it was caused by my son or I could have bought it like that. I still have the boots and want to exchange them for a right size.
Dear Sir/Madam, My husband and I have lived in the Cairns Suburb of Redlynch QLD for the past 4 years and up until recently have always been Woolworths customers - prior to that we have always shopped at a Woolworths store wherever we have lived. We are also Woolworths shareholders. there are two reasons sending this feedback to you. Reason 1: As Woolworths shareholders (and self-funded retirees) your shares and dividends are a part of our income and for the past couple of years we have noticed a distinct lack of service and stock in our Redlynch store. When we first started shopping in that store is was clean, efficient, well stocked and the staff were accommodating and friendly.
Today the same store has deteriorated to the extent that the staff can be quite rude, unhelpful and look as though they don't really want to be there. The shelves are never fully stocked and the whole look is tired, dated and slovenly. If this is the state of other Woolworths stores then it is no surprise that many past customers have stopped shopping there. In contract - the Redlynch Central shopping centre has recently expanded and Coles Supermarket and Liquor land have opened branches in the Centre. In stark contract they are fresh, new and the staff are exceedingly friendly, clean and helpful. Reason 2: We believe that the Masters Stores are a huge mistake and they will never be able to compete with Bunnings.
As Shareholders we would like to continue to support Woolworths as customers but if the Redlynch branch is any example of your other branches, as a company you have an awful lot of work to do to regain a lot of lost customers and as shareholders we would like to know what is happening with this company on a financial basis and what are you going to do to regain your place in the supermarket chain? As across the board Coles & Bunnings (Wesfarmers) are killing you.
Yesterday my grandson purchased a small packet of M&M's from our Woolworths Supermarket in Scottsdale, Tasmania. At the shelf where he picked it up the item had a sale ticket price of $1.00, down from $1.69. At the register it scanned at $1.69 so I pointed out the sale price and without checking at the shelf the girl called a supervisor who said it had been scanning at the higher price all afternoon. She charged my grandson $1.00. I asked the checkout girl why he hadn't received it for free under the scanning policy and she said "We already know that the price is not correct and also, you didn't leave the store." Not understanding I went up to the desk and ask why Woolworths had not honoured its scanning policy and was told that the Manager at the store has instructed checkout staff to not honour the policy if the buyer makes them aware of an overcharge at the register. Instead, the buyer must pay the higher price and actually leave the store, then return and ask for the policy to be implemented. I pointed out that it didn't say that on the printed policy that was displayed at the desk and the person just shrugged. Clearly this is not the correct way to implement a national scanning policy and it reflects poorly on the Woolworths brand that store managers are making decisions about the scanning policy at a store by store level.
