"A place where I can learn and create my own impacts, more than I expect. Not only being professionally coached but I am also mentored on business quotients by senior business leaders in Non-Food group. Not only doing Merchandise tasks as assigned, but I am also able to take a deep dive into Store Layout, Operation & Finance. A broader view of a Non-Food business is gradually achieved thanks to my exposure to different business fields. As long as you have a clear expectation and goal here, support is always there for you. More than just a management associate program, it's a journey to explore myself and Retail industry. And I'm excited for the journey ahead."


"At Central Retail, I am given the opportunity to work with passionate people. I experienced as a store staff  to see how hard they tried to deliver the best products, I was trained by Operations managers to know how to manage stores effectively. Moreover, I have always been given precise guidance and strong inspiration by my sponsors and rotation managers."


"As a “nearly” fresh graduate, I think I am blessed enough to become a Management Associate at Central Retail Vietnam and to have my first rotation at operations department of Nguyen Kim. At NK, I am given the chance involve in all aspects of the business, from the stores to the call center and even the after-sales service center to fully understand the business. What I love most from my very first months at CRV is that my ideas are carefully considered and critically discussed by the top management team even though most of the time they are ridiculous. To me, Management Associate program of CRV is one of the best options for the young, talented generation to learn and grow faster."
