Work on several responsibilities in the same time, which requires managing time efficiently. Also, the day would generally look different depending on whether there are more urgent adhoc activities happening at the moment.
Pros
Short hours on Fridays
Cons
Career development

I've started as a leaner at Sterkinekor and because I've been living the company values am proud to announce that am now the Departmental Manager at one of Sterkinekor branches. It has been a challenging journey and exciting also when you love working with people and doing what's right at all times. I have achieved more in a year with the company, I just graduated in July and also won the people's choice award in October not forgetting the holiday that I just won for being voted the employee of the quarter.
Pros
Free movies
Cons
Long hours

Unfortunately due to bad and unqualified management the company was in decline and sold off numerous publications to opposition companies. Salaries were marginal and expectations were unrealistic and unachievable.

I really loved working for them. I've learn a lot about radio news, voicers and a lot more. They inspired me to really love writing. At the beginning it was not easy but after few weeks i felt like i belonged there.The way they conduct news is great. i would love to work for them again next time when i am fully experienced. And the money was enough because it was my first internship.

A typical day at work was generally enjoyable due to the people that are employed at this company. The work itself was challenging and eventful. I learned a lot from the experience I obtained at PRIMEDIA specifically in the operations and development field where I found myself after running a PRIMEDIA company in Zimbabwe for 7 years. The management of PRIMEDIA should become closer to the employees as one of the values is 'People', however there is little respect for the 'people' at PRIMEDIA. Co workers are generally great people. The hardest part of the job was dealing with incompetent people from a supplier perspective as well as within the company - in certain instances. The most enjoyable part of the job was being allowed to manage situations / projects without too much interference from executive level employees.
Pros
Great training arena and able to learn a lot.
Cons
Little family time as long hours and extensive travel was involved.

Primedia has granted me the opportunity to learn how to work with other people. My typical day at work involves checking the daily roaster to see who needs to be taken to work and taken home from work. There after I ensure that all my colleagues are taken home and to work safely and that each of them is on time. My co-workers are patient, considerate and inspiring. The hardest part of the job is driving late in the evenings or when I have a lot of people to transport. Bad weather conditions can also place strain on my job.
Pros
Company resources and staff
Cons
Long hours

Flexi-hours are great. Coping with office politics is hard. Learning new skills from fellow employees is a bonus.

Each day is a new day where I learn new things. The environment is fun to work in and it is an energised workplace. I look forward each morning to a new challenge and meet lots of different people of different backgrounds and different races. Working for Primedia has given me an opportunity to appreciate different people and different characteristics. It has also taught me to cautious when dealing with strangers but most of all the ability to understand and know people.
Cons
long hours
