As an operator

I gained many things when i was working as an operator for instance to work as a team n i get that as an operator you always need to focus on target and also quality is very important if you are an operator because if you ever miss any part or put any extra part there will be a rework and that will be a lost of the company

Great System and International exposure

Samsung shall provide you with insight and exposure to the most advanced and world-class IT systems available. Although it takes some time to learn and get used to these, very soon they become indispensable to your carrying out your everyday duties. This enables you to carry out more tasks and grow in your own career. Working at Samsung provides an opportunity to travel to overseas subsidiaries including Europe and South Korea. What you put in is what you get out. Notwithstanding there are great benefits for good performance, an on-site canteen, free transport to and from work, a year-end bonus, quarterly team-builds and monthly department lunches.

Pros

Transport, canteen, great people, Korean Directors, international travel, good incentives, above market salaries

Cons

Sometimes rigid time-keeping.

Excellent workplace and a lovely company with the biggest heart of co-workers.

Samsung has been a great and lovely experience to me due to it being my first permanent job for such a period of time. The staff together with my colleagues were excellent. I have sacrificed 4 years of my life to this company and only found it neccessary to resign to better my career and my studies.

Pros

Reduced priced lunches. Medical Aid. Excellent team Buildings.

Cons

Long hours. Low wage.

Demanding, military style management

Your life Will revolve around work. Lovely conglomerate but they are slave drivers. People leave company within 2 years of working there. At times you are expected to be available weekends

Pros

Salary, benefits

Cons

Long hours

Productivity and company culture

Company culture is very different. You need to be a team player that is able to be independent and accountable. Have a "I can and I will" attitude. You have to know your will power. Also be willing to go the extra mile.

Pros

Team lunch n dinner, bi yearly bonus

Cons

Long hours

Bad working environment

Hi 1st to many connections working at company. 2nd too many bosses owners, owners wife ,owners brother , then bosses passengers. Then not forgetting their connections. 3rd back biting gossiping favouritism. 4th no increase long hours late paying after month end. Hard working dosent make a difference. Cos u just a number be happy uhave a job. Well I can't do anything about it cos of being grauged or fired. I just live my life and struggle. Hope God sees the life of working at the agent of samsung I hope.they get to see my story or better yet investigate the pain the staff goes through.

Fast paced working environment

Samsung is a fast paced environment with strict deadlines. Its almost impossible to work out a day`s plan and adhered to it. So I have learnt to multitask. I have learned to cope under very challenging working conditions. I have also learnt to take responsibility and manage my own work. Working with Sales and Marketing people I need to manage and ensure that Finance processes are adhered to. Most enjoyable part of my job is meeting our strict deadlines.

Pros

Quartely performance Bonus

Cons

Its been a good learning experience

I fix samsung hand held phones and I also check condition of samsung products.

I fix samsung hand held phones and I also check condition of samsung products. All of these I learned at samsung academy. My management is very good supportive at all times. We treat each other with respect and we always work together to achieve the best. The hardest part would be, I stay far and the salary is not enough. What I enjoy is that the respect we have for each other.

Fair

The Company is okay. Remuneration and benefits are the biggest advantage from my perspective. The culture is very different and challenging. There are both positive and negative comments.
