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.

In my current field of work, a day of work consist mainly of meetings and evaluations. I have learned to work with people of different characters and caliber. I have also learned to listen to and respect people's views and challenge (where necessary) without undermining the views. I have been fortunate enough to work under quality management. The most outstanding Post Office culture is one where mutual respect is enforced, and also maintaining positive attitude in the hardest times of the company. Although it's not a defeating challenge, the hardest part of the job is blending of views of clients (internal) and that of procurement. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you obtain knowledge of working environment that is outside your own.
Pros
Additional knowledge
Cons
Lot of administration

My working at Sapo has taught me to be abke to work under pressure and at my own initiative. I can say Sapo was a my career development centre fir me as I'm where I am today ,its because of Sapo as I'm in the management position. Internal and external trainings are provided in irde to make one's job easier. The hardest part if the job is the crime of whereby people stealing our clients parcels and we have to taje hard decisions of disciplining those tgat are involved. The most enjoyable thing at Sapo is that we work as a team
Pros
Free training
Cons
Long hours

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

At post office i was working at one of the projects, The work was very challenging and demanding both physically and mentally, it helped build my character and help me grow as an individual, i had a great time. The co-workers and the management were very friendly and always understanding, were always open to new suggestion and self expression. The hardest part was that at times were required to work for long hours in order to meet our deadlines. The learning experience was invaluable
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Long working hours
