Friendly Casual, Professional and Fun
Media24 is a comoany where anyone and everyone wanted to work at. The environment was never the same, we worked hard and played just as hard, Balance was key and they made it fun. Media24 always had ways to implementing new work ethics, and they BM had open door policies.

I would work there any time if given the opportunity

No buy in from management to align to processes.

Learned that publishing magazines is a difficult task.

My typical day at work would be me getting to work and waiting patiently until a call is logged to me to install a computer at a user. I have learned how to setup machines for users, mailboxes, User-box for printers and how to setup their emails and to connect them to the specific printers that they use. My management is friendly and easy to talk to, while some of my co-workers tend to be a little unprofessional. The hardest part of my job was when I had to work with a co-worker who couldn't work well with others and the most enjoyable part was dealing with the users.

Very professional and fun company to work for
I'm really enjoying myself. Great colleagues, great management. Good values, it's like one big family. Unfortunately my contact expires, and they no longer have a position for me.

A typical day at the office would start off with coffee first! E-mails and messages will always be answered within an hour. I like to make people happy. I used to work for Avis, there I learned what customer service is, and enjoy using my skills everywhere I go.

I would then get out on the road, go see customers and negotiate and sell adverts in our local newspapers.


The hardest part of the job is the rejection, that must be the worst thing ever, being rejected. Walking into the customers' office, all psyched up and ready to strike a deal, and then you get the dreaded "no thanks".


Most enjoyable must be when a customer thanks you for your effort and for the advert looking great in the newspaper, and on top of it all; Reaching my monthly target. Hard work pays off.
Pros
commission
Cons
missing target
