The job is enticing and very challenging .and the culture is strong with different divesities but same objective.The only challenge and a lack is practical development of employees.The training and support structure is always on par as far as the personal development is concerned but oppotunities are scarce I would like to pursue my career without any limitations so that I can add value more effectively .Managing and leading is my passion .
Pros
more training interventions
Cons
no oppotunities to explore

My typical day at work , was being out in the Trade working with my reps , coaching , developing and ensuring our customer needs were met along with ensuring we were always well represented on shelf. I always went the extra mile to ensure my team understood where they were sales wise at the end of every day so they could plan for next day. I had a great relationship with both my team and my customers. I have been in the FMCG trade for 11 years , it was in my blood , I am still very passionate about it , I loved every day of it.
Pros
company car, flexibility, being able to achieve our goals each day
Cons
some days were longer than others but this comes with the territory

A recommended company to work for from entry level to top management.
And a safe place to work at since safety is the first priority.

A place where everyone finds it easy to interact with one another from top management to shop floor

Free lunches and free gifts of our products
Cons
Flexible working hours

Opportunity exist to further develop and improve yourself within the company. Management mostly knowledgeable and open to criticism.

Work was what you made of it, it depended on how one wanted it to be. I enjoyed being taught how to make different products that the factory made.


I was employed as an assistant coffee operator and then a forklift driver.
Pros
Overtime, Training, Medical aid and bursaries for family members
Cons
Well being of different employees regarding occupational diseases

When I started this instrument course training my way of thinking changed and learned that if I combine things what would be an output of a robot as we are working with it.
Pros
Free lunch is only there if you worked long hours.
Cons
We are being requested if there would be a more work to do to work long hours.
