Serious and beneficial

As this is a state company I took all the cases I handled with utmost seriousness they deserved, whether it was 10 cents lost or 100 000 rands, the principle applies throughout. So it was a challenging job as I would as thorough with a case concerning a senior executive as I would a junior employee.

Pros

Independent decision making

Cons

Unstable management

Fun workplace and lot of experience you will get

Lots of reading and u'll know more places and postal codes around South Africa.Sometimes u'll do unexpected mistakes like taking a parcel to a wrong destination if you never thought yourself to read.

Friendly enviroment

I have learned advanced MS Office, Management skills and training people. The management was good and the workplace culture was pleasant. Some employees under my supervision were not coping with their duties and I had to make sure that they produce even if I had to repeat again and again. The most interesting part f the job was when I had to analyze reports and present to management.

the workplace wellbeing

it gets busy in the morning, whereby we have to do a long of capturing and administrative duties in the morning. ive learned to work in a team and sharpen my skills in office administration and microsoft office. the management are not willing to asist the staff that is willing to develop themselves. and my co-workers are a great team to be arund, very possitive and assisting. the hardest part of the job is when the is a complain about insufficient information we provided and when the system is down, we do manual capturing which is strainers. the most enjoyable part of my job, i would say its determined by an individual, some would say the flexi hours are great then i personally love the challenging environment which is really unexpected and great to be around

productive and fun

Working hours were favorable. Learnt alot about advance computer packages that were relevant in the work i was doing. The Management was excellent! My immediate boss was very supportive and always commended the work i was doing. The co-workers were friendly. The hardest part of the job was not being able to get a permanent job because of work permit. The post enjoyable part of the job was the coffee machines that always had coffee.

Cons

luck of work permit

No form of ownership or responsibility for me as an employee

The company is big, but it lacks certain structures that are required to groom new employees and no form of training is given to better enhance/ understand the organizational needs, no trademark methods of approaching challenges are used, the company is divided unnecessarily, long chain of commands.

Pros

Flexible hours

Cons

Divisions within the company
