Working at Lewis was not fun simply because we would work around the streets whether it's hot or cold, even on rainy days just to get R50 rands. It wasn't fun at all... I quit working there because nor dd I get paid for the days I worked, it was hard making sales.

Pros

No long hours

Cons

No free lunch

A good company to work for.

It is a good place to work for. But it's of nepotism from top to bottom. My contract was terminated bcoz I didn't go to work and my daughter was sick an I was confused myself. They didn't even bother to call me and find out. I only received a message not to report at work. When I do a follow up I just find out that my contract has been terminated.

Pros

No lunch

Cons

Long hours

More paperwork to concentrate on, credit system is more advance, customer gets credit approval within 10mins

Long working hours with no overtime only day off, too much favouritism and nepotism. Don't expect to have a social life. Some of management members harrass employees and customers.😭😭😭😭

Pros

None

Cons

Long working hours no overtime

Fun working place at the ssme time gas stress

This place need someone how knows how to work with target . The place is fun Some Customers will always need to be followed to pay. If feel if the consultants did try the best to close the sale then if the customer does not pay along the way must be the sale consultants to follow that is totally wrong. I mean to closed a deal after that must make sure your customer do pay there must be another strategy the company comes with .🤦‍♂️I was also interested to take s managers position but then I went to another company
