No fun working for change while we make Millions for the bosses

If I can only get a job a better job sustainable for the future of my family. If you complain about salary they tell you there is the gate you can leave. We work for nothing no permanent just work for years under an agent no profident fun or any benefits.

Pros

System and machine failure

Cons

Long hours

Productive and very fun working there especially when a branch is holding a promotion as usually there is lots of fun entertainment

Mostly deals with sales so one needs to have a bit of experience in both sales and marketing as it is crucial as this is the core business objective.

Pros

Free birthday lunches, Weekly Sales Incentives

Cons

Long hours for prospecting

Productive

Working at the jd group was very educating and beneficial towards my experience. Something totally different from the medical aid background I came from.The people were all very friendly and helpful. It was a total hands-on experience which I enjoyed to the fullest. In the short time that I have been there I have learned to master the sap program that became part my daily routine. I assisted with various other functions besides capturing invoice for the recons clerks I also assisted various warehouses with queries.

JD Group supports their employees through any difficulties. The company is proud of it's employees and excellent service.

JD Group employed me one day after my job application. I worked there for 10 years and I was then retrenched. I was very glad to be given this opportunity to work and pay for my studies. I am now a qualified Bookkeeper and Junior Accountant due to my JD salary. I would love to work in my old job there again because their staff a like family to each other. The JD Family.
