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

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.

It was a fun environment but very strict when it comes to work. You need to be prepared for everything that might come up and avoid making mistakes especially unneccessary mistakes because you pay for it.
Pros
Fun

It is important to deal with the given task immediately is given to you rather than to wait because at the end of the day you end up not knowing where to start and where to end. To make my job first priority in life, always when I dont understand I ask cause maistakes cause company to lose money as we know office resources are expensive , working as a team helps a lot.
Pros
Free lunc
Cons
Long hours

It was the great honour working for the company South African Post Office i have learned a lot. My experience has bring a great success in my career and i am excited because i was always selected to do many task in the group. I have been a great team player and intelligent. Is good to have your bosses who can inspire you with the work life. That is why i had to study further and to build my career so well. I have enjoyed working for the company and it taught me a lot of things in our IT working environment. My heart is always filled with joy. My Job was always hard during the first month after i was employed in July 2012. There are always challenges at work especially when your are working on problem solving skills don't ever expect things to be the same because errors differs. I never learned the hard way it was always easy and i was doing well.
Pros
Party times
Cons
overtime work

My typical day at work it was in 2014 whereby I have to help more than 387 customers alone in the office. On the pensioners day payments. I have to manage the queue and the cash in the same time. I was counting the cash using my hands because there was not cash counting machine. I closed the office so late at 18:00 evening. When it comes in management is was so difficult because my office was a single handed office meaning I was working alone as a Teller, as a Cashier and a Branch manager as well. I have learned how to manage cash and to control the queue. I have learned to manage time and my work. Customers enjoyed my services very much and they were even asking that how do I hope with such a lots of work like that because I have to serve them and respond to my email, opening the incoming mail, dispatching the mail, do a banking, opening the accounts, doing some enquiries for dormant accounts and closed accounts and also making a follow up for track and trace parcels alone.
Pros
sometimes a one hour lunch
Cons
long queues and long hours
