Best Company to work for.

This is the best Company I wish to work for this company for the rest of my life since I was a seasonal worker. I am always applying when I see that I qualify for that certain post. Everything was good from HR to Supervisors. I always miss those good times working at eThekwini municipality

Productive, funny,

Workers are friendly as well as management are fairly, I learn more about communication to different people in different calture, about team work as well, you have to stay calm at all time if you are in a field of work so you can learn more even if work is challenging you, to stay calm prevents injuries at work field and conflicts

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

Long hours

Fast pass fun place

You are having fun while you make sure the production is on its standard. Flexible and understanding management. Covid-19 rule on place. I would recommend though for management to consider graduates that have served under Municipality as a priority when it come to employment.

Cons

No coffee/ tea
