This is the best place to start if you're an adventurous person and if you like the fitness lifestyle. A great place to explore the greatness of weapons and explosives, a place where 'intelligence ' and technology is of great significance . A place where discipline is a daily lesson. A field of many careers to choose from.

My work entail looking after my team and i am enjoying every moment thereof. Over the years i have learnt many skills and management strategies. Unfortunately the culture of the SANDF took a dip into negative territory but it's not something that cannot be remedied. The hardest part of the job is probably the fact that you have to remain single to ensure a successful career in the SANDF other than married couples who have to deal with going away for operations at prolonged period of time. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get to travel and see different countries and places and meet many other soldiers, languages, cultures and people around the globe. The sense of purpose to serve a young democratic country and building a new inclusive nation is challenging but the thrill of accomplishment far outweigh the effort.
Pros
Best medical care system in the country and housing allowance.
Cons
Long hours, danger and travelling.

Very hard for individuals to grow in an environment that’s dominated by people who do not want to work hard at making it a possibility to be leaders in future. Progress gets cut by individuals who are your direct supervisors
Pros
Enough time to study and empowering yourself
Cons
Superiors want people to be submissive to their demands even if it’s rather personal, they tend to drag personal matters to work.

I gained knowledge and skills. I normally prepared the tasks of the next day, the previous day. The work place culture is cohesive and consist of different cultures.
The hardest part of the job was the marking of assessment, moderating and supervision of different class places.

The most enjoyable part is during cultural days and when practical must take place.

Quite a relaxed environment with different culture. The Job is just the same as Drs who are working for any hospital or clinic. Just that patients are different from general population patients.

I believe that the SANDF can really look after its veterans and those who served and must be served.

Why must we wait more then 10 years what belongs to us.

A day at work is theoretical and physical training and fun. what i have learned is that to get work done is to have clear policies and procedures and ensure that standard operating procedures (SOP) aligned to its policies. Ensure that those in leadership are capable of leading. be firm and fair at all times and never use emotions when making a decision.

The DOD must take into consideration that its employees are always putting the organization needs before self and for that members needs to be appreciated . Less tax can make a huge difference for uniform members coz they can't afford a house and a vehicle simultaneously, both assets are necessarily required on daily basis.
