How do people train you to do registers at woolworth’s?

I don't know specifically for woolworth's, but most places will pair you with an experienced register clerk to learn how everything works. Most places won't leave you alone on a register until they feel you know what you are doing. Usually at least a few days.

Hey, many beauty & hair products now have LABEL INGREDIENTS and DISCLAIMERS, specially makeup, they are required to put labels so consumers are aware to watch for chemicals: DBP, TITANIUM, MERCURY, HYDROQUINONE, or Toluene solvent, that causes cancer or harm us. In other words, less is MORE.

Stick to brands like Cover Girl, Maybelline, Revlon. Pencils & powder are your best choice, and makeup don't come cheap.

Women in the study with highest concentrations of these chemicals, called phthalates, in their bodies were more likely to have diabetes than women with lowest concentrations, the researchers said.

Phthalates are found in a variety of products, including nail polish, hair sprays, soaps and shampoos. The findings suggest that phthalates could disrupt blood sugar metabolism, said study researcher Tamarra James-Todd, of Brigham and Women's Hospital's Division of Women's Health.

Phthalates are present in certain medications and medical devices, and its possible women with diabetes have higher phthalate concentrations in their bodies due to the use of these medications or devices, James-Todd said.

James-Todd and colleagues analyzed information from 2,350 women ages 20 to 80 who took part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 2001 and 2008. As part of the survey, participants underwent physical exams and provided urine samples.


Reporting Bad Reactions From Cosmetics

COSMETICS - UNAPPROVED no ingredient labels:

One color additive of particular concern is kohl. Also known as al-kahl, kajal, or surma, kohl is used in some parts of the world to enhance the appearance of the eyes, but is unapproved for cosmetic use in the United States. Kohl consists of salts of heavy metals, such as antimony and lead. It may be tempting to think that because kohl has been used traditionally as an eye cosmetic in some parts of the world, it must be safe. However, there have been reports linking the use of kohl to lead poisoning in children.*

Lead on Lipstick: According to a 2009 study conducted by the FDA, every one of 22 lipstick samples tested contained lead, ranging from 0.9 ppm to 3.06 ppm. Though the amounts are small, they can have a big impact on the long-term health of women who apply lipstick every day (and sometimes multiple times per day). The agency's weak regulations for cosmetics allow up to 20 ppm lead in cosmetic colorants, but that doesn't account for other potential sources. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetic has found that lead can be a contaminant of petroleum-based ingredients or of minerals, such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

Lead and eight other metals are found in lipsticks and lip glosses commonly sold in the United States, some at levels that could raise potential health concerns, according to a new report.

Researchers measured levels of cadmium, chromium, titanium and other metals in 32 lip products purchased from drugstores and department stores in California.

They detected lead in 75 percent of the products, according to the report. Half of the samples contained lead at concentrations higher than the maximum allowed by the Food and Drug Administration in candy likely to be consumed by small children, the researchers said. 5-2-13


Does anyone actually shop in Woolworth’s any more?

Does anyone actually shop in Woolworth's any more?

Wow, my thought exactly!

The problem with Woolworths is that it has no particular 'personality', does not specialise in any particular niche, and the products on offer have nothing in common with each other. It has become a jumble shop, and, frankly, the independent jumble shops surrounding the Woolworths shops are for more interesting, and definitely cheaper!

The WORST thing is the quality of the products. I don't think they will get away with things breaking or not working any much longer.

LOL, the other day I was stupid to walk into Woolwoorths and there was a paper shredder for a kind of good price. (Not good enough, though. I don't really know WHY I fell for it.) It was the last one and the box was a bit bashed up, so I asked for a discount, which they refused. Now, I was not shopping alone, so was in a bit of a huff and being pressurised to move, so I paid and left, only to get home and find the freaking thing was BROKEN inside. SILLY SILLY me.

No really, every little thing I have bought from Woolworths was either broken or had a part missing or broke too soon or simply just doesn't work...

I think the fact that we are having this conversation is the answer to your question: They have no chance of surviving any much longer unless they address their quality issues, and work on RANGES of products that make up a whole story to create a personality for the shops.

hope this helps
