Productive

It is a company that assist the community with the financial transactions, logistics and mail related services. I was pleased to be part and parcel of the Post Office since it taught me a lot about customer service, humanity as well as how to interact with other people. The services at the Post Office trained me to be multi-tusking that requires a lot of attributes.

Pros

salary was enough to have daily meal either that being provided by the company.

Cons

The hours were normal like other businesses.

Long discussions before agreement is reached on annual salary increases.

Too much bureaucratic red tape and political games

While I do enjoy my job doing what I am employed to do, there is just too much political games, working with people who have progressed through the ranks with no actual passion for the built environment but more for job status and no actual work being done. Coming from the private sector and joining a government parastal I thought it would provide better job security and I would at least be able to get a good pension. Everything takes time and you have to jump through hoops when citing regulation and compliance with it, always looking for the lowest price but expecting all the bells and whistles. No one seems to want to take responsibility or be accountable, but in defence we are governed by the public finance management act and things do take longer. Overall if people are accountable and act with integrity this would be a good company to work for.

Pros

The benefits (for me it's the pension - that's all I get)

Cons

no real work ethic, politics, some unethical practices

Productive day

End of the month are worst days of the days as you complile Financial report, you have to submit Casual hours to the head office for them to capture and pay the salaries, it is quiet a lot as you really have to be accurate as the casual employees depend on you to get a salary at the end of the month. I have learnt alot of things about myself the abilities i have in me that i did not know about the fact that i can work well under pressure, i am a self starter and the fact that i organize events very well. I am part of the management team and because of my Transport Diploma i form part of the operation planning team for transport section that enables me to explore exactly what an transport operation is all about.I would really say i enjoyed this job when i started it but have realised that i am more of an operation person than admin and i think it is because i am always looking for a challenge. I work well in group and with people, I enjoy interaction and the sharing of Ideas. i do not believe that there is something hard but if there are difficulties it just calls for one to go back to the drawing board and come up with and concur. I enjoy assisting people in with their issues, it brings peace to my heart.

Pros

Travelling

Cons

No new Challenges.
