Much productive, and fun too

Up to this day I am doing what vumo has taught me about admin and mostly about recycling. Today I'm looking at waste products as commission than complete waste... I am seeing many people makes a living out of recyclable waste products and a clean environment in progress. Wow dirt does pay and a lot, today I have administration experience through the opportunity given and with the collective experience I have gained I am able to apply it on my day to day life and work.

Pros

Exposure to learn more about recycling

Cons

Sometimes the hours were long due to month end busyness

The branch was too small to hold the whole Lephalale workers and we get to knock off at around 22:00PM at times and walk for a 20min distance to find a taxi or lift to home which was too risky for us as ladies.

Very productive company very hardworking environment

Starting with downloading dail sheets for balancing on system, data input in ledgers department and waste department filing of bank statements, sometimes standing in at reception, data input of debts and credits on system balancing with cashiers and waste department next day. Enjoy the staff and my boss she was good. Most enjoyable part of my job was balancing the sheets.

Hard working

A normal day at work, would be a hyper energetic start trying to process over 2000 payments currency and rand value. team work is most important dealing with co workers and different branches Hardest part of dis job was trying to keep both client and co works happy. Best part was being there and making clients happy and always letting them know I'm always available and willing to assist.
