Great company as a whole. The head office is of top quality. Leadership is great, the Cape CBD branch was problematic. Job progression was very fast, I moved up within months

Stock market collage is a fun company as a call center agent but that's all it is, the salary structure is poor, you find yourself working for transport and even going through a whole month unpaid and frustrated, the senior management can be friendly but not professional and utterly Unskilled in management and at times very rude and disrespectful to agents to the highest degree, abusing workers rights and laws forcing to keep people at work from 8am to 4 pm which the working hours keep changing constantly as well as other rules and policies but no pay per hour for being there making calls for nothing and there is no contract existing for call center agents just a verbal agreement for pay and promotions with no written contract ,absolutely no basic salary at all but they lie to people and say there is, so if you have nothing better to do with your life and time then go and volunteer because that's all you are there ,a volunteer ,the most you'll ever make there realistically is half or less what thy promise a month maximum if your fortunate or no pay at all, no free lunch that's not true just short 15minutes tea time and 30 minutes lunch with no canteen, I know all this and more because I worked there for months and quite it's not a real job.
Pros
no free lunch unless on special aucations, just free tea/coffee
Cons
normal working buisness hours but not paid for

Each day is different but always hectic. Meeting new people each and everyday. Dealing with either call center staff, or sales reps that need help with presentations. Running a sales office, emails to clients and pre-qualifying clients for affordability. Getting docs from clients to finalize deals. Arranging training material for reps. Recruiting and interviewing. The workplace is a very viby, sometimes noisy but very pleasant environment. Exiting to see how clients are making money. I call it Wall street in SA. Hardest part of the job, not being able to assist clients who really wants the product or not getting a deal in on time. Most enjoyable part is, that hard work pays off not just financially but also emotionally.
Pros
Incentives

I was running day to day project administrative duties which I enjoyed the most that is the reason I decided to further my studies in the project management faculty to get my national diploma in project management. all the organisations that I worked for all their cultures are highly professional and the management are treating their juniors with respect.

Working for Stock market college as a sales consultant has been a good opportunity to me. Because it helped me to equip my selling skills. But there is lack of management support and the salary structure is unethical.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
The salary structure is not good

Days inside the office are mostly about creating a client base and making new/more leads. Days outside the office are mostly about meeting clients or potential clients. I've learned about different manners of communicating and connecting with people, understanding different business backgrounds and a safer way to trade. Every consultant has a team leader which makes answering questions less challenging. There's a lot of teamwork within the company itself, this makes the work culture diverse and there's less conflict. The hardest put about the job is getting to clients that are outside my office area. The best part of my job is that you don't always have to see clients on your own and the flexible working hours.
Pros
Short hours
Cons
Commission based

Check in, Ensure that the consultants had heir appointments for the day. Ensure that staff reach their targets for the day. Hardest part of the job was being in charge of people that were older than me
