Belief in the philosophy that every employee can contribute to the efficient operation of the company

Free to come up with process improvement initiatives as long as they improve productivity they are adopted. The HR department takes the initiative of improving management and leadership skills by training identified employees with reputable institutions and with the assistance of SSETA. Have learnt that my eagerness to learn new things and working smart can get me elevated to higher positions. i started as a data capturer and rose through the ranks to become an Operations Manager. The hardest part of the job is people management who are deeply unionised. The easiest is to ensure that you adhere to policy and procedures and life becomes easy.

Great experience

I’ve learnt a lot from them. As my first job they did a great job. My senior manager really contributed a lot in my career and having to meet him again at Absa it was a blessing because of the things he taught me along my walks of life

Good semi government company

It was a good company in 1994 from government to a semi company but as years go by things change especially from 2004 . Bad people from top management joined the post office and it started to drop the standard and if you can look at now ,it is No longer good at all the services are poor and also the morale is very down from the employees

Pros

It was good then now I do not know

Cons

It was a best company to work for not anymore

Post office should be privatized

I suggest that Post office to be privatized so that the culture can change and the company will start make profit and win the trust of the community back.

Lovely place to work in

We worked in a team of twelve people all young and energetic and hungry for challenges and work. Paying sassa beneficiaries their dues. It was a wonderful and challenging experience working with various people especially the old ones but however i have learn a lot about customer service and working with hard and large sum of money and handling various customer enquiries.

Was this review helpful?

The company is no longer what it used to be, postal delivery to first addresses only every 4th day.

I started as a data capturer work for 9 months there, promoted to teller, then admin and for the past 8 years mail controller, mainly a mail dominated ar which I did a great job. My reason for resigning was due to poor management style which makes it impossible to deliver what it takes, which was the slogan of the company at the time.
