There’s no such thing as a job description With what I learned from the company is that you have to be flexible and help around in other areas even if it’s not part of your area of expertise

This is a great company to work but no grow possibilities in the near future in the division i am working. A typical day will be doing track and trace, Batsa vehicles that depart back and reporting it on the group to management. Vehicles testing panics and 2 way radios. Creating google sheets for the day open all needed tracking programs. I have learned so much in this company. Management is great they are not on your back. No racism. There is no hardest part it is what you make of your job. Is to motivate the guys you working with. Answering and sending out emails to the necessary people. Arranging Services for BATSA Vehicles.
Pros
Christmas lunch
Cons
No Growing in company

I work in a team of 6, excluding the line manager. An awesome bunch, and we all get on fairly well. The only male in the department, but that has not been a major issue. The relationship with management is a cordial one, albeit without daily physical interaction. Accountability and transparency are also very important. The hardest part would be when systems do not function and when there are delays in turn-around time with tasks as a result. Time is of major importance, as we are in vetting and screening for the company. The most enjoyable would be knowing you played a part in the process of having a candidate go from that, to employed in the company.
Pros
When there are functions, expenses have generally not being spared. Although there has been a need, citing the economic climate of late, they still make them enjoyable.
Cons
Some of the cuts that have been made have seemed a bit ridiculous. For instance, strict regulation of coffee/tea times nowadays.

We sometimes have relaxed days between our payroll periods. There is a time for fun and relaxation and then we know what was expected of us during payroll times. There was a healthy balance between work and play. In our payroll department we are a close knit team and we work together great as a team. The most hardest part is not getting the recognition we deserve or crave for. The most enjoyable part is my co-workers.
Pros
Subsidy for Medical Aid; Pension Fund
Cons
No Bonus or 13th cheque

I can firstly start by saying, I simply love what I do in the Learning and Development space. I think I have a great personality, patience and flare for what I do. Daily tasks include management of the portfolio - L&D for the country. Hardest part is the ongoing change (very frequent) which makes structures, target groups, strategies and goals change regularly. I work with a lovely HR crew, each heading up the specialist portfolios, we work closely together to deliver our goals.
Pros
Close to Management Level and close with the people I work with and influence
Cons
Very uneasy culture across the business

A typical day, would be a busy one. I have learned a lot in my years at this company, from the people still currently working there to the ones that have resigned and moved on. The hardest part of my job is to try and keep everyone happy which is a bit impossible. My managers and co-workers are a crazy bunch where we have a motto, "Work hard and Play hard".

The most enjoyable part of my job is that I never know what problems/ crises the day will bring me, a burst pipe, generator not starting, cleaners want to strike, driver vehicle broken down, MD wants his office painted, never a dull moment. Being a problem solver it's great when the problem is solved to everybody's satisfaction I work independent with little or no guidance needed
Pros
Fuel allowance, mobile phone and laptop
Cons
According to company policy they have to retire my

A typical day at work will start with me supervising the staff on branch/vault openings. I will then advise them if they don't work according to the standard operating procedures. After openings, a report is sent to management based on my findings. I learned that you must have patience with other staff members as they are not on the same level and training needs to be adjusted according to their understanding levels. The co-workers had a lot of respect for me and always told me that I help them a lot and I'm always willing to listen to problems that they might have and give advise or assist. The hardest part of the job for me was the stand-by hours. There were times when I worked 24 hours straight without going home etc. The enjoyable part of the job was to learn different people that comes from very different sorts of life. And to learn their culture and just to interact with them.
Pros
Medical aid contribution
Cons
Long hours
