An organisation that is lacking strategic leadership from executive management in SA.

Recognition and reward was never forthcoming.Lack of support and leadership from executive management.Lack customer centricity.Staff turnover is at the upper threshold which is inclusive of senior management.Not aligned with market pricing and subsequently do not secure business due to lack of competitivenes.

Pros

None

Db schenker

DB schenker working hours 8 to 5 with 15 mins tea and an hour lunch and a second tea break for 15 mins. Working environment is relaxed as work dont pile up but they dont allow u to sit to rest if there is no work.

Productive and work experience enhancing

It was my first job in the supply chain industry and I found it worthy as I learned alot both in the warehouse and sea freight departments. The year experience came in handy and left the company with experience that I'm willing to share with other companies as the offers come.

Pros

Willingness to teach and share work

Cons

Not being absorbed in the company

Logistics and transportation

To work at DB schenker was a blessing to me, because through schenker i have gain more experience in most of all logistics and transportation. I have learn lot excluding controlling drivers prior to deliver, supervising of staff and sorting cargoes, dispatching and receiving of cargoes. i have work closely with all management and i was even trusted employee because i was having good relation with all management. Company was following health and safety rules that make this company good and safe to work at. I was working as an in-house controller were i deal will clients direct, that make this job hard but interesting at the sometime because i have to make sure that i pleased client at all times. The last day of my work and my job that i enjoyed so much is when i was told that i m best employee, that i was told by my the client who happen to renew contract with a company because the way i built relationship with them and able to fix every issues that they can bring to my attention.
