Cool company.

Most of the work I did was on the field so I wasn't really in a office at all. But the working conditions and remuneration were top tier. Only problem was that I was only working under a short term contract.

Working in the field is a great experience because I got to introduced to different people with different backgrounds. I enjoyed being a supervisor.

Working with Statistics South Africa gave me a big chance to discover my strength of being a team leader and consulting different individuals from different backgrounds

Good work culture

Was hired on contract for Census Project. Fast-paced, management and colleagues treated us well. Had alot of challenges as it was the first 'digital' census but some challenges were overcomed through team-work. The project could've used more planning and extensive training. HR and finance could've done better for fieldworkers and supervisors, especially in terms of persal and payment issues.

The place socks, but it pays well, so if it's short term take it. Payment also do not come easily, you have to complain multiple times before you're actually paid and even then it's not all of your money.

Collaborative but stressful

It was difficult working in community I was working in high crime it was stressful because we're using gadgets,the data we were collecting was useful but people make it difficult for us by refusing to be interviewed.

Overall fun working experience even though we faced different challenges on a daily basis.

Working for this organization was a challenging but fun experience. I got the opportunity to use my interpersonal skills and I must say that I discovered that I have good skill in working with people. There were some challenges along the way, but they were worth it because those challenges made me grow as an individual. If I were given an opportunity to continue with the organization I would gladly do so.

Fun & exciting working st Stats SA

It was the first time for me to work in Public Sector, but I did learn a lot , when I look back it was a zero tolerance of corruption. The experience with Stats S A, it was excellent and unforgettable.My manager/supervisor he was very supportive, due to I did not have any experience on my job, but through to his teaching today I'm passing his legacy to young people, he gave me a chance in life to prove myself.I thank him so much.

Flexible but always on standby

Working as a field operations officer means you have to manage a team. Which is valuable experience. The management is helpful although their processes are delayed


Flexible, company car


Dependant on management that isnt efficient

Bad communication

Worked for census2022 and struggled to get information out of them. Getting paid is also quite a struggle and communication is really bad. Our FOO would just go mute
