Barloworld is a great company and it is great stepping stone for us who are also into entrepreneurship ... I also wish that certain issues that workers complain about be taken serious ... issues like racism and also acknowledge that we all come from different parts of life

Barloworld is a very satisfying company to work for when you are on the ball and meeting all your targets. Managing artisans with work coming in and going out on time is very challenging , but when it works out , is very satisfying to see customers pleased with the quality and professional work that comes out of the workshop. Managing people is not easy but trust is everything. It all falls into place. A good experience working at Barloworld equipment.

The family spirit is gone.You have become a number and there is anytime somebody than can replace you. Making money is king and not doing business that will bring in the money. Short term focus.
Pros
Brandname
Cons
Executive vision and decition making.

Barloworld equipment looks good from the outside get inside you will regret people who get paid are the ones sitting in the office field workers are the least paid and they are an undermining company to get a position it depends on who you know you can spend 20 years on the same position without them even thinking to give you a promotion through experience and knowledge, they can take your benefits they did it to so many employees especially the department that is least educated about labor laws they turn to treat them bad with no regard to your a

I cannot say much about the BWE SAP IT Applications department. It provided me with a platform to learn much but the environment was more like working in a blast furnace. Results were produced. The environment is such that you work on a business process that needs a 1-week solution in 2 hours. The system is highly customised, and when there is a break, the management commands the consultants to fix it the same day even if it needs more time for development and testing, and the quick solution will only be focussing on the broken part of the system and not wholistic. The only time we would enjoy was when the managers were absent from work. This workplace taught me to be independent, know all and tough.
Pros
learn to be independent and responsible
Cons
Very Long hours, longer than 16 hours

I wouldn't call my relatives to come an work here. Some managers do not approve overtime for office employees. Managers do not respect employees by listening to them. No room for improvements for employees of colour.
Pros
Free food for overtime
Cons
Allowances are not fixed for shift workers
