Fast paced

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fast paced job. Not appreciated. Taken for granted. No help offered when asked for. All that is good is that you get so exposure to the corporate world. Gives you that advantage.

Fairly good workplace

Fairly good workplace. Unfortunately, there are still old ápartheid-style'habits that are very well hidden. Your skin colour matters here, it doesn't matter how knowledgeable / educated you are, you will feel that you are not welcome and they will do whatever it takes to make sure you feel it. If you are there to make tea/coffee for the white folks and wash dishes, you will be okay.

Pros

Tea / Coffee breaks

Cons

Old 'die-hard'generational habits

Ok

Good company to work for but my salary don't allow me to go live on my own and start a family. Otherwise it's good but the gap between some of the mechanics when it comes to salary is to big while doing the same work.

Fun work experience

I spend 17 years at afgri and it is like a family business where there was always an open door policy. Hard work was seen and rewarding of all personal.

South African Firm

Good company to work for but located in Bergville South Africa so a detailed review may not be of much use to job seekers on this website. I did find the company to be fair to its employees.

Driven

Doing 1st, 2nd and 3rd line support - challenges everyday. Always something new to learn. Management are fair but not always open about situations. No growth at current position

Work and fun

It is an interesting company to work for. The layout of the offices is attracting, they offer market related salaries and their benefits as well are exciting. Management depends on who you report to. Some Managers have leadership qualities whereas some are still not at that level

Chalghing and fun

A day at work always starts good everyone was early at work to enjoy a cup off tea together and talk about everything and work was also in this way everyone that needed to know what is going on had the opportunity to catch up. and when there was a meeting it was always good and private stuff stayed like that and everyone communicated well so the day can go smoothly as possible. The hardest part was to give someone bad news or when a co worker refuses to be part of a good team, Everyday was a enjoyable day because I love working as a team and to serve my customers personally everyday and to go out of my way to try and help everyone I like to look everyday as a new beginning in life and at work,

Pros

humanity, good spirits and overtime medical aid and pension

Cons

was a long way to drive to get to work

Interesting to work with various customers

I would start the day checking emails, messages from the head office, credit notes etc. I would contact clients and other branches regarding credit notes, stock, ect. Learned plenty about working with the public and stock management. My co workers were kind, professional and hardworking dedicated people with problem solving abilities of note. The hardest part of the job was leaving due to relocation....I enjoyed every aspect of my job and was grateful everyday to have this job.

Very fun place to work

The days started very orginized, then its coffee and as soon as there is a client we help him as quick as prompt as possible. If done the 4 grading courses already, maize, sorghum, soyabeans and sunflower. Still have to do the Wheat grading course. The management at the silo are very friendly and understading. The people that I worked with was extreme friendly. The hardest part of the job was checking that everyone is doning their jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job was the phisycal grading of the different types of grain.
