Management needs to be reviewed

Nepotism and alot of gossip on Management Level.Hr needs a clean out especially at Centurion Office. More corruption in the HR Managers office than in local government.

Tribalism, judgemental and favoritism

I was never happy with the working environment at Ackermans, the management would treat me bad and blame me for any errors occurred in my absence. You would be saved only if you were xhosa or zulu, they judge me for what i had for lunch and laugh about it, my salary was never equal to the hours i have worked, i worked with stress until i had to leave for another job.

Mavlous company

When you enter Ackermans door you feel at home. That's how good their Employees behave. The company is good very considering for their employees. It will be an unfortunate if you make with a boring boss.

Pros

For good store visits.... Team gets launch money for relief. Internal promotion is very quick

Cons

They can't think for others in terms of transportation. They always abuse the knock off time

Productive and fun working environment it is easy to fit in that environment because they make you feel welcome

They grow you to become a better person and they wear clean uniforms that is representable to customer they have great customer service and always put customer first and always taking care of the staff they recognise you if you work hard and encourage you. Awlays encourage staff to work with passion and creativity and also smart.

Very stressful workplace

You are suppossed to cut cost as a manager. And on the other hand control stock loss. It is stressful because daily you need staff to work as a team in order to complete task. Rude management who will not give you courage but instead criticize you and threatens to fire everyone.The workload is too much.

Pros

Free tea Sales commission

Cons

Long hours
