In the morning I would set off to call on my customers, having made appointments the previous day or on Friday, which was the planning day. During my time with KC, I learned how to deal with customers, how to handle irate customers. I learned how to handle the pressure of a sales environment and absolutely enjoyed dealing with customers and satisfying their needs. The job also taught me self confidence and not to take the rejection of the call/business personally. We worked in a team of 3 sales people with our manager as the 4th. We were a close knit team, we shared our strategies, our successes and helped each other with our failures as well. The hardest part of the job was not being able to fulfil my customers needs all the time, sometimes due to out-of-stock issues. I enjoyed going out and meeting customers as well as learning about the different applications of my products.

The work was as expected and I was doing the pretty standard stuff. The hours were good and the rates were great. The people were nice and they are big on the safety of their employees

Team Leader (Current Employee) - Cape Town
World Class company but the culture in the Cape Town plant compared to other plants is very toxic and politics in senior management. A certain group makes all the decisions for the plant and drives their own culture which is demotivating to the staff. Many staff want to leave but the salaries are good and benefits are good. So forced to stick around until something better comes up.
Pros
Company benefits, subsidised meals, paternity and maternity leave.
Cons
Bad toxic culture
