Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Manager at South African Police Service

Hard work

You have to be psychologically prepared to avoid strain mentally and physically. Sometimes members struggle with resources as others make them their own. The managers tend to choose their own and show favouritism which then demoralise less favoured members. You must study to understand law and policing in general. One has to be equipped with more knowledge around society, what they need and how can they help the organisation and as to what is their attitude towards police.

The benefits in SAPS are good. Courses are available if you are willing to travel sometimes and the work environment and culture is also fine. Hardest part of the job was to sometimes do the work of your commander and not getting the recognition for it. Most enjoyable part was job satisfaction when you accomplished something and clients are satisfied.

Fun and prodictive, but never without any dull moment

Each day was different. I have learned to spent my time at work to the best of my ability, to complete tasks on time with the minimum resources available and a lot of discipline. I have learned to work with a diverse group of people and to make quick decisions in the office. I have learned to be proud of who and what I am. My co-workers were a diverse group of people which I have learned a lot from each day.




Long hours, No overtime, No promotion opportunities
