Fun place to work at if you like interacting with people

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's a good place to work at if you like interacting with people,building and helping young individuals learn more about what's expected of them when they leave the tertiary environment to the workplace has always been an amazing part of my job because I used to teach Marketing Management so it focuses more on day to day interaction with people. Fellow colleagues were great to work with they are young and vibrant and we were like a family

Pros

Flexible and have time to relax during free periods

Cons

Working Saturdays

Disastrous place, no professionalism, late salary payments pf no salaries

The most unprofessional workplace ever ,they just hire by looks and what you tell them you can do,no references wanted, no background checks or criminal record checks,we got paid late two weeks after pay dates then sometimes we got half of our salary month end then half in the middle of the month, students were striking time an again for being promised things that were never delivered for example Tablets ,t shirt e.t.c

Pros

Anytime is lunch time

Cons

Not being paid on time, lectures would just resign then you find ome person with a workload of 4 people

Stressful environment

Working with the students was great and I had good relations with my colleagues the issue was with the employees, they never paid us on time and were not fair on bringing reading material for the students.

Productive

A productive work environment, you really work hard for your money. A paid commission at the end of the day could keep one going. One stands outside all day unless they have a client which could easily be the hardest part about the job

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

A low salary

Unless you're desperate, dont do it

Lack of communication from head office management with management of branch level. You will have to fight for your salary. Forget being paid on time unless you're lucky. You get paid for the previous month at the beginning of the following month eg. You receive your December salary in beginning January. Department of Labour and the CCMA is your friend. Unprofessional, inexperienced and unqualified personnel hired to lecture to students so that they may save on costs. When things go wrong at a branch level they will shift the blame to the branch principal or manager. Lecturers will not get basic resources in order to perform their jobs effectively.

Pros

Pro liars

Cons

Overworked and under paid

They won't pay you!

The work load its to much but manageable if you can work under pressure Paying you will become a problem, they don't pay on time, if u receive something on the 6th it will be quarter of your salary Towards the end of semester they will disappear without a trace. Couldn't believe when some staff members and other people told me until I experienced it myself

Pros

good working hours

Cons

they won't pay you

productive

I would start the day by checking and ensuring that academic process are in place and functioning efficiently, this was achieved by checking lesson plan,lesson observation and enforcing regulation concerning students conduct and discipline. Management and the entire work force was easy to work with.
