Safe and productive workplace

The workplace is a safe place and you feel at ease. Some managers are a bit difficult to work with but this will be so with all places. Once you get to know the people you will start loving it there. The culture is a bit more older and not modern. But overall this is an excellent workplace!

Pros

Good Benefits and salary

Cons

Old culture

Great company to start with but not so great to stay on.

A great environment to learn and perform under a production based setup but as time goes on the work culture of poor planning takes its toll. There's also very limited growth prospects.

Share your experience to help others

Worst job ever- definitely NOT an employer of choice!

Culture-staff complain to each other but afraid to tell the Head anything as he will take you out of a job, just as quickly as he had given you a job.

Pros

Zero pros

Cons

Unhealthy work environment, favouritism, dictorial, Directors gossip a lot, no trust, lack of leaders

Learning experience and different every day

Every day is never the same but always busy. I learned a lot about electronics components and stock. Management not enough aware of the lower levels of staff and duties. Work place culture is equal. The hardest part of the job is stock take, long standing hours and managing discrepancies. The most enjoyable part of the job is the capturing onto the system but mostly the GRV processes.

Pros

December bonus

Cons

Working extra hours/ weekends unpaid

Good place to start. Not a good place to remain

Its a good company to start working for. But after a few months it will be clear that its not a good place to remain at. Salary isnt bad and benefits are okay. Contract states that it requires you for 9 hours per day, in actual fact it requires you for closer to 14 hours a day. Managers are not trained for the position so poor planning is a daily thing. Your family life will suffer as you will almost never be home. If you work hard you will get more work than other people. No recognition for hard work. You could also be bullied or forced to work overtime. Not a great place overall to work if you have kids.

Pros

salary and benefits are okay

Cons

long hours. harsh working conditions. poor planning. forced overtime. lots of friction.

Difficult

The company is not an easy company to work for, they do no training, they expect you to walk in and know exactly how they work. The environment is harsh and unfriendly.

Pros

Working hours on Fridays is from 7.30am to 1.30pm

Cons

Working there is a con.

Productive

A typical day at work consisted of work for a full 8 hours. I learned how to plan and getting filing up to date. Management was very professional and a pleasure to work with. My co-workers was friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job was getting everything up to date. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the different divisions and co-workers at various branches.

Business Development in South Africa

Travelling to all corners of South Africa, building a client base for a newly started company gave purpose to the daily hustle. Management was autocratic yet dynamic but lead to a clash of personalities Working on a shoe string budget yet landing long term contract proofed challenging that lead to long term relationships with customers.

Pros

Creativity

Cons

Limited family time

Flat structure

Its a great environment to start a career. They have great learning and development structures in place. You are mentored and supported by all means by well skilled individuals. Love their culture of promoting from inside because it is very motivating for the staff.

Pros

Braais when we are celebrating

Cons

Meet deadlines
