At that time it was reasonable but stressfull for transportation and cost of living was high with a minimum wage as we got. All in all we got a change of ownership and could wish to to get second chance from you.

It was very nice to work there, because of the work challenges and experience. I learned many things e.g to deal with customers, problems solving and dedication. As I was doing many things at the same time like telesales, reconciliation, stock controlling, customer services and other administration duties, it made me to be more confident and ambitious.

Always make sure that your products are still fresh and far from the expiry date. Make sure you have no damages. Be presentable for parmalat. Make sure your shelves are always clean and neatly packed.

Parmalat is a big company with great products, processes and reasonably high tech equipment.
Management is reasonable, but has potential to can be great.

Growth opportunities seem limited and diversity management can be improved.

Structure is reasonable flat, but lacks signs of transformation. The structure at executive and senior management remains white amd male dominated.

A typical day with lots of breakdowns is very straineuos and you have to pull correct resoiurces and need to work hand in hand with the maintenance team.Breakdowns that are huge need to escalated to the management to get assistance.The workforce is all involved on a task and teamspirit is high.The hardest part is that the rewards of good performance is very limited if nay at all and it s ademotivating factor to shopfloor..Enyoyable part is to be able to make constructive decision that are valuable to the company.
Pros
On the Spot Award fro Good performance recognition
Cons
45 hours work a week

Good day everyone.
At the present moment I'm doing bulk deliveries to Pick n Pay distribution center only. 1 assistance with me to help with destacking of products delivered . Purpose of that is to make it easier for the receiver's to scan the items in. The stressful part of my job is the driving during the night time,as there is always danger of drug addiction rooming around.

First day working on my own in a shift and there was this intrument which gives chemical results and all its settings were out. I had to remain calm.
It is a homely farmly environment. You get to work with different characters which you learn to know and understand .

Through the years I have learnt that eperson management style is different so you to idrntify theirs in order to fit

I had the opportunity to fill various roles while working at Parmalat, each with their unique challenges, but I always had the support of my snr's manager and the Exco to make a success of my career. Career planning and further personal development was one of their key objectives. I will recommend Parmalat as an employer of choice to any of my friends.

I did like to work as an assistant driver but I was not happy due to my wages and going with truck was so risky. It's nice when you touring all over but time to come back home it's not right because you slip so late.
Pros
No free lunch
