Brand promotion entailed working 8 hours on a Saturday and Sunday, sometimes Friday provided if the production launch is on a holiday or the opening of a new shop is on a working day. It required a person to be outspoken and friendly towards customers whom your trying to communicate the promotion of a new product to. You ought to be smart about how you approach people of different age groups and how you carry yourself needs to be strictly professional and also outgoing because your main aim is to make customers fall in love with the product your promoting but by not trying to look down on competing products in store. The job required time management skills were one should not spend much time with one customer while others are passing without being informed about the new product in store. The job teaches one about the reality of the world that, in life there are different types of people and people will react differently towards you and what your trying to promote. Therefore, any reaction or mistreatment of customers towards you should not be taken personally but as challenges met in the workplace. The most exciting moments about promoting products are when you educate people about things they did not know or they were not aware off and they give you that " thank you smile for enriching my knowledge". Like they always say, we learn new things everyday.

While the people at Iisilumko company were terrific to work with, I felt that the opportunities for me there were limited by the structure and size of the company. I believe that a larger company with an international presence can offer challenges and opportunities unavailable at a smaller establishment. The position with your company is a great match for my skill set, and I feel that I would be an asset to your marketing and IT department.

I was a general worker so I worked wherever they needed me.

I learned how books were binded and printed.

I helped with cornering of the books.


They manage their workers quite good.


The hardest part was me not learning stuff the way I thought I would.

And doing physical work was quite hard because I had to push pallets that was stacked with books, that was much higher than me and ending up with lower back pain.


I enjoyed the food, and meeting new people.

Since i am worked as a payroll i learnt a lot of thinks like how you calculate LEAVES,SDL,UIF and PAYE, and i was having a good working relation with my management and co-workers.

The hardest part of the job is when you receive hours late from the client and you have to work at home at night to reach the deadline.


The most enjoyable part of the work is when you done with your job and be informed that you don't have pay queries from the staff.
Pros
Incentive
Cons
Working from home at night to reach deadline

Isilumko is a company that motivates you to grow & unlock all hidden personality traits & skills. Employees and employers have healthy relationships, being target driven is important as well as working together as a team to achieve higher results. I've developed major skills especially in being fast-paced and to work diligently. The best part is when we have to assign promoters to their campaign, to train and help them be better at what they do. When promotional items arrive e.g (Stay-Free sanitary towels) the respective promoters would give them out to the public and possibly keep the left overs as an incentive so it saves them extra costs in their cosmetics monthly purchases. My Public Relations qualification has definitely equipped me for aiming higher and to also be an excellent brand ambassador. There's nothing more important than building strong and healthy relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
Pros
Fare Treatment of employees and wages paid on time
Cons
Very busy environment

Being a waiter was fun because every day I learned something new. I was a great waiter and always did more than I needed to. That's the type of person I am - I always give 150%. For instance, I didn't just do my duties acting as a waiter/cashier, I also tried my best in getting the restaurants imported consumable products sold. Example: Rice-biscuits and aloe-juice. By doing this I increased the companies sales and broadened their customer base to a diverse group of people ready to eat and try new things.
Pros
having a basic as well as getting tips
Cons
long hours and mustr wait for restaurant to close before leaving the store.

I did promoting of numerous products which involved explaining product benefits to consumers. I learned how to interact efficiently. I had to ensure management of stock of products and my working equipment. We usually worked on our own but would sometimes be paired with another promoter which was great. The hardest part was dealing with customers that had a bad attitude. The best part was the successful completion of a campaign.
Pros
Interacting with people
Cons
Long hours
