Barloword is a good company to work for , retrenching their employees is a last resort for the company, they would rather relocate you if they no longer can afford you.

Benefits like


Medical Aid and Provident Fund


but Salary is not always good.
Pros

Everyday is a new day with new challenges, to be productive never a boring day. Safety is no1 priority in this company. Understand the companies objectives and goals. Good interaction with colleagues, learning from one another. Co-workers, we respect and value people with different opinions, diversity training was given, investing in staff.
The hardest part of the job, is at year end trying to make targets.

I have learned a lot working for Barloworld, customer comes first and Professionalism, Respect from the co workers, loyalty for the brand is of utmost importance to make a success of the business.

I learned that you can achieve anything if your mind is right. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing when I go home I made a customer internally or externally happy/satisfied.
Pros
Brilliant Medical Aid
Cons
No Growth in our department.

Management have no authority and the workplace is ruled by HR. Good learning environment and knowledge gain. No room for growth as you are only a number.

The Company hosts develops young professionals like myself. The experience is fairly great, as we rotate around the company, joining different department. This gives exposure to different kinds of enviroments and different jobs. You actually get a sense of how each department works, and how that helps the company grow as a whole. One realizes the value and importance of each department.
Pros
great experience
Cons

Everyday is a new day with new challenges . Planning is done and each person is allocated a job. If there is any electrical breakdowns, I will attend them and if I am done with them I will move over to doing maintenance on the machines that has been planned for maintenance that day. My maintenance on the Electrical side of the machine includes checking of the batteries and testing them ,checking all the electrical harness on the machine and doing ET downloads with the laptop. Inspecting and testing the starter motors and starting cables.
Pros
Transport to place of work
Cons
unfairness
