Motivates to go extra mile, to push youself as an individual to reach places at a higher ground. Working with DIFFERENT people, engaging with customers, maintaining a healthier relationship with customers, employee from DIFFERENT COMPANIES and store managers was soooo exciting .

I wish I can go back to working for smollan.

I miss working for smollan and would go back anytime working for the company, it was my most favorite company to work for out of all the places I worked at, I liked the hours, especially working weekends it was not so hectic, which allowed me to have a life of my own, I liked the training and the people I worked with made it a nice company to work for, I was always excited to go to work, and I had a great manager, I never planed on leaving the company, I wanted to complete my contact with the intention of taking the next contract if they offered it, but unfortunately due to covid, I was retrenched.

Pros

Reasonable working hours.

Cons

Stock counts.

Competitive, Fast pace, Challenging

Every day is different.Planning is key with your manager. The Client is key and may change their taught or ways of working at any given time. The customer needs your presence, feedback constantly. You will work on cross functions and different cultures. But makes you aware of your environment, people and change.

Pros

Incentives, training, scorecard to keep you on the edge for personal growth.

Cons

Most of the time long hours due to the demand of your job.

Great company to work for as a student. Little hours, you cannot work on all the campaigns

A typical day at work was to promote products in stores. I learned that you just always be neat and presentable especially when promoting a product. Mangement as absolutely amazing and on point with all the campaigns. The hardest part of the job was to get people to purchase the product.

Control tower

When going for an interview they tell you about nice position and good salary but when you get a job you get different offer and salary unless you know someone working there. Control tower is the worst you get R4500 and it's a fixed term contract that doesn't have end date so anytime you can be jobless. There's no growth unless you have connections. No incentives just a basic salary taxeand Sunday is a normal working day nothing extr
