Flexible hours. Relaxed environment to work in, weekends offs were great. Annual bonus. Management was not great, but ok. Not very much of development training provided, no team buildings and departmental end-year functions were dull and boring

It was a very relaxed environment, not too much work. I seemed to finish everything I needed to do very fast because I didn't wait for work to pile up. Anything that needed to be filed, scanned, copied or typed or signed I did or had it done it immediately. The challenging part was when I assisted the Senior Clerk with numbers to balance the order for Enviroserve. I enjoyed my work there totally.

The management at this Depo in Wynberg is poor they are very productive when they want to get you out or in my case dismissed all due to personal reasons. Don't talk about asking advancements then they inform you there's no money in the budget even though you've worked years doing extra work out of your contract. They send you on all training to do the work but don't expect to get compensation expectations

I have learn a lot. Capturing complaints on sap also manage to work long hours as well as weekends. my co workers is hard working but when they are away u must do your work as well as they work. Hardest part of this job is capturing complaints and listening to the drivers when they give check calls all in one breath. most enjoyable part is to work with the drivers which are not so difficult as the others , and also just to be at work doing your work for the day. A typical day is when u sick and get a lot of complaints, where drivers struggle to explain the problem.
Pros
short lunch time
Cons
Long hours

I was responsible for all of the Floral display in the store. This was the funnest part of the job as that was my time to use my creativity.
I often spoke to the clients about what they were doing in the flower world so that we could make our shop more productive to their needs.

I was very interested in educating our clients through experimentation on our flowers to see which made them last the longest etc.


I offered workshops and demonstrations in order to encourage flower skills.


The hardest part of the job was unloading the heavy buckets when the flowers came in from the market and being in the cold-room pricing it all.
Pros
Expanded on my creative skills.
Cons
Not any.
