Stressful environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A typical day at work was going through your checklist/to do list for the day.Checking on the progress of your orders so you can give clients feedback and completing quotations not attended too on the previous day. Making sure that calls are answered as there was no cold calling/prospecting for new clients,every call was a potential client. I was a sales executive and it was my very first job.I learned about corporate gifting,different types of branding methods,substrates and customer service. The company is family owned by a couple who have invested a lot in buying stock overseas and buying machinery so they can print and sometimes manufacture in house.The management style is more of a micro management style where your work is monitored on a daily basis. Personally I found the environment to be stressful as we took on so many orders that sometimes we were not able to get the order out on time,which led to clients complaining about poor service. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that all products were branded in house,so it was easier to keep track of the orders as we did not have to rely on another supplier.

Pros

inhouse branding, 13th cheque

Cons

highly stressful environment, micro management

Extreme pressure due to lack of management

Good as a first job, no growth after that and production manager has poor values and skills required to do the job and lead a team. CEO and management are biased in decisions and can make you feel like you have committed a crime.

Pros

None

Cons

Extreme pressure and long hours

Disappointing

Abelanani was a horrible place to work at, there is way too much politics that goes on there, there is no job security and the staff, management and owners only look out for their best interest, we were forced to work extremely long hours and overtime, if we could not work overtime we were given warnings.

Very awesome

Always busy, it was a good environment for growing as an individual and as a company. The duties were all challenging and we were always on our toes. That prepared me to be the hardworking machine I am today. Because of the atmosphere we had back there, I no longer dread pressure. I started as a mere traffic controller, running in between dispatch, receiving and production ensuring clients receive their orders well on time, and later was given an opportunity to grow as the company was progressing. I later moved to Job Scheduling under the warmth tutelage of the directors, was later moved to a new and exciting department that was being introduced at that time, The Digital Printing department. I started with it from the ground and watched it grow rapidly. It turned out to be the most interesting designation I have ever graced in the company. I become quite knowledgeable in the processes surrounding digital printing. And it turned out, also , to be my area of expertise up to this very day.

Pros

Free tea

Cons

Long hours, minimum social time.

A very challenging place but fun at the same time

-in the morning checking stock,the printers are available and the jobs that are going on that day must be my first priority. -I have learned how to be responsible and be a team leader. As. well as to manage people. -to be a manager you must be a role player manage to joggle your work everyday in simple words have strategy. -be able to work with your people try to be in their shoes but have limits. -when you have to make sure the job is perfect so that the client would be satisfied. -when the job is done and ready to go out with no mistakes. Only hoping that you have satisfied the client.

Pros

sometimes we did get free lunches if we worked until 08:00pm

Cons

06:00am Until 06:00pm
