Schneider Electric,is a great company but management in South Africa makes it difficult to enjoy your work, the processes are not up to standard as compared to Schneider global,Yes we have excellent products but it is not good to work here anymore The inequality here is worse,in terms of salaries and position.
Great place to build relationships with clients and see positive change. The people that work there are very dedicated and fun. The hardest part of the job was obtaining the desired outcomes. Unless you are a part of management, there really is no job security because the programs are funded mostly by federal grants. They lose the grants, you lose your job.
Having to ask them to give you work when they know you came here for experience
Working together with Schneider electric help make with gaining experience and knowledge and doing different kind of jobs and understanding of winder upgrade and installation and maintenance of Electrical
Long hours but its fine
Whilst at this company, I traveled to a lot of places within such a short of time. I was also able to launch various projects within the SADAC region.Unfortunately, their lead time was too long for the products I was managing and the access to energy campaign didn't really take off as it was expected.
Global company with qualitative products
Lack of support from local management when it comes to access to enegy

A typical day for me at SESA starts from 8am to 16:30. I work at a very busy environment, where I am between chasing deadlines, getting stock and running up and down between the stores and my desk. It can get very busy, but I love what I do. I believe management is not what it should be and I am not please with it, but regardless I am obedient and do follow instructions well. The workplace culture is amazing, I am situated at the workshop and work with amazing workshop people that are hard workers and very friendly. There are challenges that go with my job, that is what makes it interesting, and I honestly feel like I need new challenges. I enjoy everything that has to do with my job
A typical workday, includes accounts reconciliation, capturing of invoices and following up on supplier queries and age analysis. The company gave me exposure to Foreign creditors and accounting functions outside my job scope. The workplace culture was unique and fun. The hardest part of the job was getting other departments, especially logistics to adhere to finance procedures. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to attend Reserve bank seminars on compliance with regards to imports and export reporting.
Year end closing
Typical day at work will be sorting queries and dealing with customers. Mostly I deal with the Return goods Credits, loading of discounts and general problem solving situations. We have a diverse culture here at Schneider and work as a team when the job needs to get done. The team effort makes the hard work worth it at the end of the day.
Schneider Electric is a good company to work for.Gaining a lot of experience in Meduim and low voltage Circuit Breakers.Also learned how to interact and communicate with different people due to mostly working at different companies.

I really enoy what I do and just would like to take it to another level or different area and grow more.
I work very hard and in most cases I work till late to make sure I ran all the reports and the job is done for the day.I have learnt a lot as I have worked in all the departments stating by Receiving,Picking and Packing and Despatch.I have a very good relationships with my co-workers and learnt a lot from them as well.The hardest part of the job is when I have to work very late due to workload and finding my kids sleeping.But I always make sure I give myself time to spend with them.The most enjoyable part of the work is when I receive complements from my manager saying the cusomers are happy.Then I know that it is the effort that I put for the stock to release and get to the customer on time and I know that the on time delivery(OTDS and OTDC) will be 96%.
We do have braai's when we did well just to thank the staff.
Long hours that we work can only be until 20:00 at night and weekends.
