I learned capturing of Client information onto All service Providers if need be and into Apple Database, selling of Apple products according to clients needs and setting up of devices and new Lines and Upgrading Contracts. There's excellent team work and everyone looks out for each other. Management has good leadership skills and they also listen to your concerns.

I just felt I was not a good fit due to 1 specific person I report to as he is set in his ways and is not willing to listen to new ideas or suggestions. Had no leadership from this person and up skilling takes place to assist me in bettering myself or carreer.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Not flexible

Standard workplace, free lunch was provided daily which was a plus. High pressure environment due to the nature of the product being distributed. Overall, not a bad place to work

Exciting products and environment, if you are willing to put up with excessive, somewhat unreasonable demands, while job security is not great. Level of organisation, training and structure also much lower than what you would get in a big company. Hierarchy such that employees are not clear on what or how many jobs they are filling. Good for those liking more of a 'cowboy' culture.
Pros
Exciting products
Cons
Disorganisation, lack of training and HR skills, high demands

Started working at 6:30, loading courier trucks for deliveries. Marked attendance register, checked the invoices to stock. Dispatch stock to in-house couriers.

Learned dispatching and receiving stock at a distribution centre/warehouse and received certificates.


Management was all right to work with.


Co-workers did excellent work.


There was not really any hard parts to the job.


Most enjoyable part was joking around with the co-workers.
