Working at this company was fun and also learned to communicate in Afrikaans.I have learned to be reliable and accurate at all times and to handle cash well. The hardest part of this job is dealing with difficult customers but when u humble yourself even when you not wrong you win. Enjoyable part is when the customers are happy with your service.
Pros

Cons
Long hours

It was a one day work for which students were hired to help with their second stocktaking for their financial year. I learnt to be focused and being responsible because any mistake of miscalculations could jeopardize their books even their business. The management was very handy and helpful. The employees were also fun to work with and very supportive.The hardest part of the job was standing up for long hours but i enjoyed working there overall.
Pros
gain experience
Cons
long hours for little pay.
