Management does not help when they are needed. They show up when things have already gone wrong and they blame you. Infornt of the client. The clients are rude and disrespectful. You are not a person to them. Management tells you there is nothing they can do about it and you must just. But the minute you blow up management blames you.. sorry

Pros

long hours, rude clients, no support from management, low salary

It keeps me busy while i am searching for something better

Every day is a new start because you have to be positive and take challenges as it comes. Some days absentees are high then you have to think on your feet to keep the production flow and not to cause line stoppages.

Pros

You learn alot from your colleges

Cons

You are in a dead end street with no advancement

productive, skills developments are available, positive minded staff

Productive and fruitfull. Have learned how to be a leader for people of different races and culters in the work force. Great on managing the company. Great team members who do as there leader says, they also have an input on how we can improve the production. Its when the guys have supplied wrong parts for production and i have to have answers for what happened, and must explain to the client whta actually happened, not forgetting the part of giving an employee a discipline. Ending the shift with no line stoppages or issues which arise on the workforce.

Pros

having braais every month for team building

Cons

long hours, no transport issued by the company on a night shift

team spirit

For the past three years I have worked as an administrative clerk at a busy logistics company called UTI Mounties Division, where I have developed my freight forwarding and administrative service skills. Although I have greatly enjoyed this role, I am looking for a new challenge that will provide me with the opportunity to further develop my ambitious career. A typical day day at work will be with clients quering their parcels and expecting to be deliverd with immediate effect, as an employee one should make sure that clients parcels should be deliverd on time effectively and efficiently.

Pros

staff wellness

Cons

no team buildings

Fun and stresses in the work environment

My day are always good because have the most nice , and easy to getalong co-workers . I always learn new things since my mentor trys to expose me to every part of the business . Management are the best because is my mentor and anything at my interest hardest part or let me say stressful part of the job is sometimes not knowing whats expected of me or not fully undertsanding the work I have been given . When we as workers have nice chats and braai's to not break the bond and when we have achieved projects that is a great feeling to us as workers that our efforts are appreciated.

Pros

going out for lunches ana making braai's

Cons

long hours and loads of work

Challenging

Hardwork, dedication and commitment is rewarded. My experience and skills are all thanks to the opportunities I've been afforded at the company. A typical day at the office is as any other management position where people are being held accountable for their performance, every opportunity is one of mentoring those who shows potential for development. The hardest part of the job is rising above typical challenges. The most enjoyable part of the job is the reward in rising above the challenges and seeing teams take ownership of their areas.

Pros

performance bonus

Cons

long hours

productive

At UTi mounties the focus is mainly on operations. Not much focus is on cultural or social activities. Its a day to day routine. You come in to work for 9 and a half hours then go home. Either in shifts or straight day shifts. earliest shift starts at 5am and latest ends at 8:30.

Cons

long hours
