This was just a parttime job as a student at the university. The job was all about sampling products for sensory (tasting), sorting the storage for the raw materials and packaging. I learned about how to conduct sensory testing for various products. The supervisor was a very good teacher always willing to teach where she can. It was a few hours a day but it as such a simple job and enjoyable.

Good work place with warm and welcoming colleagues. The greatest park of the job is seeing the smile out of someone face after you provide them with assistance.

My typical day at consisted of 2 activities:

1.Establishing new control points on campus, capturing and processing data (readings).from 8h30 to 1h00.


2.Assisting first year students in all their surveying related matters from 2 PM to 3;30PM.


Working with the first year student helped me understand better what i was taught as a student myself and it was the most enjoyable part of the job as i got the chance to transfer knowledge to others.


I worked with my survey lecturer,whom I reported directly to. I worked for the civil engineering department of the cape peninsula university of technology


The hardest part of the job was not being able to finish a on-field exercise due to bad because it was to be redone all over the next day.
Pros
public holidays
Cons
on field work on a rainy day in winter

Being a student and working for CPUT was one big experience, I loved it. Working with the most understandable people.

I have learned all the necessary to perform well in the administrative field and more.


The hardest part of the job was registration time, when there is students expecting the best of you but forgetting that you are just one of the rest. Student will expect of you to break rules, just because they know you, or just to comfort them. Expecting more then they are suppose to be given.


The working environment are one I like. People are just relaxed and very understandable. We all worked, laughed and play together. No hard feelings.

You first sign in and then you go to a lab. You fix the chairs,walking around assisting people with the computers and printers. I learnt a lot about computers. The management is very friendly and strict at the same time. Colleagues get along with each other and they help each other. The hardest part of the job is standing for long hours. Meeting different types of people and sharing ideas is the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Free Uniform
Cons
Standing for long hours
