I enjoy working at Parmalat the teamspirit was excellent. The Health and Safety for Employees as well as clients was in Line with the National Health and Safety act. The benefits with the company was good and Parmalat will always go the extra mile for clients and to get the work done. I was honoured to be part of such an excellent company that also gives their employees a change to broaden they knowledge and grow within the company itself.
Pros
Received free products that was launched also received free lunch with training meetings, staff meetings, presentations.
Cons
Overtime was worked only when it was necessary

The work is very challenging, stressful, overworked and manageable but unfortunately compensation is not industry related. Expected to do miracles if they know you’re a hard worker.
Pros
Staff card & on the spot awards for good performance.
Cons
Overworked and mandatory expensive medical aid.

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.

Assistant driver 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
Cons
Long hours

In my opinion management cant care less about there staff and there life at home. You are expected to bend backwards untill you break. You are expected to walk the extra mile and the company cant match your extra mile.
Pros
They have fearly good salary
Cons
Bad morale

Overall a wonderful company to have worked for, i have learned a great deal from them, from starting out as a admin assistant, to taking on extra responsibilities to learn more about the business. This leaded to being promoted, gaining so much more experience in sales, staff management and so much more. Great workplace culture, you work as a team and everyone gets along very well with each other. The hardest part of the job became traveling and being on the road everyday. The most enjoyable part of the job were my staff and the relationships you build with your customers. I loved the challenges, solving daily problems, reaching your targets and going the extra mile for customers.
Pros
Wonderful company benefits and ongoing training
Cons
Traveling and working over weekends
