Job experience is fun as you learn a lot about Marketing in a holistic view

A typical day at work as a intern. log on go thru Emails and assist in anything the Marketing and events team need assistance with, whether its helping with the TV slot burns, activation's or ordering promo items and design with BSSP in certain days there is status meetings of up-coming events and past on how they faired. The management is good The hardest part of the job is the constant travelling had having to be away from home for extended time periods

Pros

Learning about Marketing in one umbrella

Cons

extended time away from home activating for events

old mutual if a good company to work for.their employees are united and always support one another.whether is work related or personal

typical day at work would be on mondays if you never planed your day well,then everything will fall apart,what i have learned is that you need to plan in advance.work culture is extremely amazing and enjoyable.reaching targets sometimes can be a bit of a challenge.what i enjoy most is i knock off at any-time as long as my job for the day is done.

Pros

we get free petrol money, cell phones and airtimes

Cons

we work long hours and an extra mile

Fun work

The company was fun to work for, the basic was nice plus we earned commission for exceeding individual target, for being part of contributing toward the region target we got rewarded with trips and being part of achievers club. Development was there for every product we had to sell it helped a lot because we sold what we were very informed of. I loved working there unfortunately the long hours and no off that i made myseld work to be the best and earn more deprived me time to raise my kids.

Pros

Free lunches, free team braais every week. Petrol money every week and airtime every month.

Cons

Long hours.

Professional work environment

Excellent management team, team work is encouraged. Internal processes need to be re-evaluated and improved. Reaching targets through all odds made the job tedious. Flexible hours and servicing or advising clients on a daily basis made the job enjoyable.

Pros

Flexible working hours, field work, employee benefits

Cons

not being paid if targets are not meet.
