You feel great to be associated with the team since there is unity and greetings in the morning and meetings with management. Workplace culture is multinational and diversity forms a big part of the company and since it is a multinational concern it incorporates international perspective in the daily work which is great for learning. the hardest part is difficult clauses that the government passes on a daily basis and the joyful part of the job is the caliber of people you interact with from staff to customers.
BAT is one productive and fun company to work for . one learns a lot about different markets and cultures. its a company that grants each an every individual to be a leader and there is a lot of room for growth.

BAT was a good company, very challenging. It was a filed job , in which visiting the customer , is a daily job. Selling to different outlets is done daily. I have learned a lot from this , company especially dealing with customers and leaning how to handle some misunderstanding from customers. The management was good because they taught responsibilities , trained us and showed us how to handle pressure. My co- workers were my team mates, working together when required helped us . The hardest part of the job was to be hijacked and the most enjoyable part was to reach targets
Good exposure and experience
Rate of hijack
the typical day consisted of being ready at the office by 6:00 every week day. The average clients seen daily would be 20 of which we maximised sales at every visit. Stock was readily available on every visit in exchange for money. Merchandising had to be put up as well as constant reminder for retailers to maintain the recommended selling price. After store visitations for theday, reconsiliation of money with sold stock had to be done and balanced off. After banking was done, admin was also conducted then archived for financial records.
meeting and resolving clients issues
lack of safety in the job itself.
work starts at 05:55 but can work until 18:00. the experience has been invaluable, doing a sales pitch, introducing new products, customer retention and relation. there is a low level of interaction between reps and management hardest part is being hijacked most enjoyable is the ability to solve customer problems
