Overworked and there were no benefits

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I would recommend Servest for a graduate, starting out its great, however there are no benefits. You stay late and come in early just to meet monthly deadlines.

Fast paced but supported

You work hard and have a lot of responsibilities but you learn and grow in a safe and productive environment. You are treated with respect and are viewed as a person not a number.

Hard work place

To work for Servest is really exciting to work I worked on a Team of Students that went to Saldanha 2016-17 I'm not sure but it were really exciting to work for them that's why I would like another opportunity at Servest.....

Pros

Yes

Cons

According your hours / shift

Bad is an understatement

working in a TOXIC environment is not worth the destruction of your health and mental stability, I do no think Lucifer himself would survive Servest and its toxic management/leadership.

Great place to work

I joined in a sales position however in a sector that I had never worked before offering a service I knew nothing about. The team taught me on site whilst I used my sales skills and they provided me with their industry Knowledge. I absolutely loved the industry but unfortunately due to hard economic times job stability in the country was tough.

Pros

Willing to train people with the Right skillset

Cons

Retrenchments during rough times economically

Poor in terms of uniform

Very poor in terms of uniform, leaves, study leave, and reposting fee thing which is not understandable, and very distambing the budget, no promotions. But very good in paying when it comes to a pay day and bunuses we get the surely, the most problematic things about servest leaves, re- posting fees, and not giving the uniform. And the study leave during exams they do not pay well and during practicals they insist that a person should rather resign because they not giving.

Pros

None

Cons

Fine

No knows anything

When you work for servest, you will quickly learn. That no-one knows anything, there are no processes. No structure. No training. No communication. It feels like your working for a very badly run Goverment department.

Pros

A salary

Everything

Not everyone in that company is a thief, even though you can find some there.

I was retrenched from servest in 2019 July. I've never received a cent from them since. But I always knew that it was my Manager fault. Hence Ive just left them without claiming my money.
