The Financial Services division is South Africa is a racist environment. The company staff is extremely old school, with no room for innovative ideas. There is a constant battle to stay ahead, and there is no work/life balance.
Cons
Long hours

Commination with different customers...the challenge to understand each need, having to determine what works for that customer and makes him or her 100% satisfied. Always challenging to deal with staff member and having to create a positive , supportive daily structure to maintain daily business transactions. Staying strong positive and motivated with the right attitude is what makes my day. Always looking to find a solution and retain customer solution is my thriving point. I always enjoy seeing a customer leave completely satisfied and confident that we have done our very best to help him or her. Targets, Marketing, communications to various social media can always be a bit of a challenge .... but having the right people (team) right attitude anything is possible.
Pros
COmpany Car and Incentives

I have had six years of marketing experience in the financial services industry. I am keen to move to a new challenge, as I believe I have the necessary skills to add value to an organisation. I am passionate about learning and developing myself and will be an asset to any organisation, as I always strive to be the best I can possibly be. My finance skills together with my marketing and management experience, have equipped me with a greater strategic edge in thinking, formulating and implementing strategies and plans. The road to where I am in my career has been a long and winding one, one that has taught me life skills as well as skills I use in my everyday job. I have a keen eye for detail, and enjoy unpacking a problem to it's core components, making problem solving easier. I have great people skills, and believe that much of a job well done can be attributed to holding a strong relationship with stakeholders, as well as communication. I enjoy working in a progressive and innovative culture, as I bring a unique skill set, vibrant energy and expertise to the organisation.

Work starts at 07:30 in the mornings and the day ends at 17:00. Vehicles average between 60 to a 110 cars per day for servicing. All training is regularly by BMW on all aspects of servicing BMW vehicles. I enjoy working with my co-workers and helping other co-workers out when I do not have any jobs assigned to me. The hardest part of the day is when I need to wait for parts in order to repair the vehicle. The most enjoyable part of the day is when I am able to fix the car under the desired time and achieving the most units for the day.
Pros
Closed over weekends and public holidays
Cons
No overtime paid and not easy to achieve incentives due to unavailable parts

it is a very exciting environment, full of life, people are supportive in all prospects of ones well being i have learnt to make constructive decisions and how to treat customers professionally, handle queries with utmost importance, using my calender to dairise duties, working in a team, being a team player There is no hardest part in this job as however there are some challenges you would come across and people with more experience will assist. The most enjoyable part is the time spent resolving queries making sure that the turn around time is met at the end of the day and the statistics is high, then you get compensated by leaving early/ halfday
Pros
company car, petrol card, medical aid, pension, 13th cheque, profit share
Cons
dealers knows who is who in the company, they can escalate challenges to Managers without letting you know
