Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Personnel Officer at South African Police Service

Lack of resources influences turnaround time to complete a task and or project.

I have only been working for SAPS 3 years and 10 months. I am therefore still in experienced compare majority of the support staff working there. Most of the them have been working for SAPS for more than 10 years and most are still on a level 5 salary.Growth in SAPS is slow unless you fit the "profile"There is no consequence management. Complacent managers are inconsistent. Recognition is completely absent. Absentee expectations are unattainable due to poor management.Comply now and complain later. Working hours are great.


Working hours. Relaxed environment


Poor management

Incredible place to work at but takes forever to be recognised

In the beginning it was interesting but as time went by it was tough because there was no growth it took forever for people to be promoted. For civilians it's tough because first preference is given to the police officials. For those civilians doing administration duties it's rough and there's two departments in one organisation. Police for police officers and public services for civilian employees.


Work security and benefits


No growth

Not much pressure at work. Secure job security but no growth. Salary ok but not enough for living costs. Management needs a lot of change in the SA Police
