U don't know what to expect which makes it intresting. I have learnt to delegate instead of carrying all the job on my shoulder. management, top class always supportive and listening to omes opinion. Hardest part of the job, trying to satisfy everyone(customers) especialy since customer is always right. the most enjoyable part of my job- coming up with solutions.
Pros
staff braai
Cons
helping other department all the time.

Its a very good company to work for . One hardly has time for home and other responsibilities which makes it a little bit not so fun to be working for this company. Having to attend to fussy customers makes it a little bit harder to enjoy working in this industry. Btut I have come to terms with the fact that not everyday is a good day. Each and every customer that walks into the shop must walk out happy and satisfied.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, No staff meal, N no overtime or public holiday pay

A day at famous brands will always start with laughter and openness. You will start a fresh and forget what happend the previous day and focus on current on hand situations and you know that wont be dealing with issues on your own as there is always some one at hand. Management are always on the go and ready for new challenges and you always gets the feeling of exiting programms or challenges for the future.Fellow crue members are very friendly peolple to work with and of cause there will be days that you would rather not like to remember,but every organitation has its ups and downs. The hardest part of this jod is the daily demand and keeping up with changes that is rappid and unexpected,but we always manage . The most enjoyable moment of this job is that i work with staff that is always on the look for improvements and helping to get the job done.
Pros
braais and coming together
Cons
Long ours

My current work space requires hard working individuals that definitely require the skill to work under immense pressure and deadlines. If the employees were not a creative, fun, loving bunch of individuals the work space will definitely not be possible to achieve what we do as a team.
Pros
Teambuilding worksops
Cons
High Stress levels

It was second day when there was a strike , we had orders to be produced we had an urgent meeting, from meeting we had to get casual workers to help run the Plant. We got help from the Admin staff . This was a learning point that you must train and get hands on at the same time.We completed orders the next morning before delivery time, I had to inform relevant people about our situation and the response was very heart warming this is the hardest part of the job after resolving the differences everything settled calmly.
Pros
prioritising is the order of the day
Cons
break -downs and meeting targets
