Company is clouded with racism, ideas from employees are weighed down and negatively accepted. Its dominated by old people who have a very resistant frame of mind to change, it's a good place to work at if you have no intention of growing in your career...consider it a retirement village, it's good for you if have no intention of contributing industry shaping ideas because there is no room for that.

Working for City of Cape Town was good, exciting and fun. I gained experience in administration. The management was friendly, in good communication with us. My hardest part of my job was during training. Some people were provided training sadly for me I was not in the list of people who got that lucky and received training. I waited for a call from COCT regarding traing but got nothing until today but we were promised to get a training to have certificates that will help us in the future.
Pros
No free lunch
Cons
Short breaks

Working for the City may be a rewarding experience however due to nature of the business the wheel can turn very slowly and planning ahead is critical.

My experience as a contractual employee was very short, yet profound. I've gained some experience and exposure. Managed to enhance my knowledge. However, due to lockdown most lined up trainings meant to capacitate employees were forfeited. I somehow wish there could be something done.
Pros
Gaining Knowledge, Exposure and Experience
Cons
Forfeited Training, Short Employment Contracts, Lack of ongoing Monitoring

I am very practical person and enjoy working outdoor as much as indoor. I have gained experience with regards to firefighting as well preparation needed. I have acquired other skills over the course of the last 3 years such as general maintenance activities. Brush cutter, Chainsaw operator Assistant for 2 years. I have good computer literacy in Microsoft Word, Power Point, excel and Outlook. I have excellent written and oral communication skills and enjoy practical activities. I have gained experience in administrative tasks such as filling, basic project management, personal time and attendance matters and taking minutes. Due to my passion for the environment I enjoy environmental education and I am comfortable and competent in designing and implementing my own experience lessons for children and adults alike. I have previously taken on the responsibilities of my EPWP Supervisor when my supervisor he was on training for the duration of 2 weeks. I was given the responsibility of overseeing and managing my colleagues, preparing the tools for the specific task and make sure everyone signed their time sheet dail, making sure I checked and singed any lose tools, taking care of company vehicles making sure they wash each and very Friday preparing the oncoming week. I am a good team player and work easily with people in positions of authority. I have no problems with following orders and can work just as effectively by myself as I can in a team. I am a hard worker and do not mind working after hours or in a weather conditions if it is required. I am currently doing my driver`s - more...
