Very fast pace office, you need to be on top of your game all the time. Employees are very competitive. Management was always fair to everyone and there a lot of room for growth.

It is an ideal company to work for, SG Convenience do not have job specialization, thereby one can improve a lot if willing to as you'll go from department to department.

Zero management or leadership skills. Staff, especially sales reps are overworked, paying for your own Petrol is costly, no empathy if you or your child is sick, you have to be dead to call in sick. Taking leave is on there terms, all customers returns be it damaged or expired will come off your salary. If you are not on a buddy term with the fields manager then you are a target.

Company limits its growth for workers,no team building projects. Workers always complaining about hours workers and salaries differ.
No opportunity of growth as it limits your work to a standard day to day

Just a day at work

SG Convenience is an amazing company to work for. I however will recommend that they look into motivating their staff more. Team buildings, actively engage with staff to boost Morale and also get suggestions on how to improve working environment. Apart from
our provident and pension fund there is no other fringe benefits. I would definitely suggest that the business subsidize medical aid - Offer incentives such as employee of the month and also employee of the year. If certain targets are met incentives are given to staff.
Pros
We can by certain goods at extremely reduced prices
Cons
There is no possibility of earning a little extra as overtime is not offered

More focus needed on meeting delivery expectations and fulfilling promises made to clients regarding service.
If delivery issues where fixed the Company would have a lot of potential and would be a fierce competitor in the industry.

The worst place to work in Cpt if you are not of the lighter complexion. no fuel or car allowance management is rude unfriendly you are a Sales Rep how do you budget for fuel out of your own salary. There are Convenience and Liquor Reps the latter are treated like the they don't belong there.I you like been treated like a school kid then. They are a level 3 BBEE contributer but the whole management team in Cape Town and Nationally is Of the lighter complexion Best part is the Fellow Employees which make working under draconian management easier. My advice if 12 people resigned in 4 months you decide
Pros
Staff Account
Cons
Not a good sales management team in Cape Town

A typical day at work is not bad unless when the car starts giving you problems, with the management we don’t have such. The culture keeps on changing, the job itself it’s not hard but the false promises and hopes of getting better resources to work are the ones that makes one demoralized. There’s no enjoyable part about this job except the relationship that one has build with the clients.
