Run by greedy people

At first everything seems great until they have exhausted your network and contacts for sales then you are not good enough and they look to replace you. Before making you leave or firing you which is common, they will go from treating you nice to treating you badly. Very unprofessional very mickey mouse type of business. They basically buy the director of their main client gifts in order to keep the contract going...


Flexi work schedule


Often threatened with your job

I needed a living salary and this agent was there

They worked well with people their code of conduct was good as well. We all understood why we were there at first place and training was provided. We earned within our working hours we also had stock counting with our managers, our working hours were depending on what is the target of the day. We sometimes receive the stock or dispech

It was a good experience

All communication was via the phone on WhatsApp. The gigs paid well, but the communication was not always the best. Employment is not guaranteed to be continuous, which was a con.

A productive and relaxed work environment

A typical day at work would start by setting up the retail kiosk and ensuring that it was presentable for clients to approach and enquire about the products on offer or come for technical support should they have any issues they needed addressing. The most learning was done during training sessions on how to handle and deal with a number of issues and also being provided with sales skills. Management was really hands on and knew how to communicate effectively. The workplace culture was relaxed and the most enjoyable part of working has to have been being able to chat and enjoy being around and learning who your colleagues were and what they were about. The hardest part of the job had to have been convincing a new client, who was reluctant to purchase the products we had on sale. The one thing that was not nice about working for New Era was working on a 3 month contract basis and not knowing whether or not it would be renewed.

Great work culture

Working at New Era, I was able to learn a lot more about human interactions as it was a direct sales job, all the while exercising my event planning and reporting skills. The open environment made it easy to learn.

The Hours Per Fay Was Long And As For Lunch You Had To Buy Yourself. Tea And Lunch Was Given On A Daily Basis As Expected. You Have Free Transport From Work Which Was Nice And Expected As Well Considering The Hours Worked per Day. You Would Start Work Roughly At 8/9 And Sometimes At 11 And End The Day At 22h30 When Store We Work At Closes. The Workload Wasnt Much You Could Handle It But The Hours Worked And The Outcome At The End Of The Day Was Not Quite Agreeing To What Was Expected From Us. But I Truely Am Greatful For The Opportunity That Was Given To ME And I Made The Best Of It.

Fun Workplace

It’s a different “Promo” company because they really make sure u know the brand you will be working with, in fact we are trained not to be promoters we are trained to be brand aurgumenters

Was ok.

New Era was unorganised at times. There was a time when they didnt confirm if there was going to be work or not ,all to find out that there was work but I couldn't make it because they didn't confirm.




Walking in the heat for long time.
