Challenging, and competitive
Having to find new places to work for every single day is challenging, moreover one needs to have data on a cellphone everyday so as to be able to confirm jobs, sometimes finding the client's location can be a bit of a challenge to a point that one might end up having to use uber to find the location which adds to the cost and sweep south does not pay for those extra costs. However it's good to teach one independenc.

Interesting work, high stress but rewarding
Even though the environment was not the best and toxic at times. It was a great learning experience. You learn a lot about yourself and about the tech industry. It is very important to work happening there so you need to stay on your feet. You need to have tough skin and know yourself and believe in your capabilities to work there.

Stressful working environment
- A stressful working environment with Poor management style
- They have hired a private HR consultant who does not work on the site full time, when there's an employee/Employer dispute, HR sidelines the company instead of being neutral.

- The company is white-dominated yet they say it's a BEEE company.

- The companies processes are poor and since it's owned by a Wife and husband, it means when they have a fight at home or bad day from home that day, all employees will feel the heat.

- Promotions are given to the selected few people based on the colour of the skin, not on merit.

- Top Management has no manner or the good way of talking to the junior employees when resolving issues, that is why based on all the above listed few points, more than 8 hardworking and top-performing employees resigned within a short period of time in the year 2019.

No culture
Working at SweepSouth was like being transported back to high school without the fun parts. You wont be heard if you are not part of "management", who are not qualified to be managers. You will be subjected to bullying and blame on a daily basis because management lack responsibility and people skills.
However if you enjoyed those things about high school and lack people skills, this is the place for you. Good Luck

High security when they see that you did not press arrive at your client house they give you a phone call,
Working at sweepsouth was a great opportunity for me because,infact it is the best company ever,on their training they make sure that you are well trained for this job,their clients was always honest when the hire someone they make sure that they give you full details including their directions to arrive safe at their houses.

Good
When I go to work depending on what time am I booked by client to come to work , when I leave home I click on !y app that I'm on my way' , when I arrive I click ' I've arrived' so the client will know I! At the gate. I've learned to work with different types of people the good and bad..I learned time management cos without that you can't survive at Sweepsouth. The hardest part is to deal with a very rude client. The enjoyable part is that you travel a lot to even new places you didn't know about.you tour and explore, and meeting very good people out there!!thumbs up Sweepsouth! I love Sweepsouth!
Pros
No
Cons
It depends on the work, between 3 to 9 hours per day

Empowering culture and job satisfaction
Working at SweepSouth is definitely not like working at a big corporate. The business is nimble, moves fast and is rapidly scaling. That means that you'll like be involved in aspects of the business that traditionally can be seen as out of scope for your role, but you'll learn a lot in a short space of time and contribute to building a great business. Your input will be valued, your dedication rewarded. The business also offers wonderful freedom in how you do your job on a daily basis which is tremendously empowering. This is not a 9-5 company and you will work outside of normal office hours from time to time. If you like working in a silo, this is not for you.
Pros
Flexibility, job satisfaction, culture, contributing to something great, interesting problems, meritocracy
Cons
Potentially for some people: Constantly changing direction, pressurised environment

A busy environment
A typical day would be to interview ladies that are interested in becoming domestic workers, teaching and training the ladies about sweepsouth and what is expected of them. I have gained experienced in teaching as I am studying to be a teacher at Unisa. The workplace is fun and everyone has the freedom to express themselves. The hardest part about the job is having to train over 30 ladies in a day. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to meet different ladies who speak different languages.
Pros
The company would organise team buildings so we would travel to go to Cape Town for any functions
Cons
We do not get overtime in working weekends

A lean, fast growing company with a challenging, meritocratic culture
SweepSouth is a great place to grow and learn while supporting the disruption of an industry with deep, historical issues. This environment is a challenging one which I find stimulating as a high performing, A-type personality. Through my performance, I have been rewarded with constant above inflation increases and I feel like my contribution to the company is valued.

Let's be clear though, SweepSouth is a start-up looking to rapidly scale. If you buy into the culture and enjoy a challenging work environment without corporate BS, this is the place for you. Some may struggle but if you're the right person you will thrive.


Given the immense challenges faced in our industry, support and operations team members need a thick skin and a sense of empathy. Our workforce faces many issues in their day to day lives and customers can sometimes lack empathy which can be quite upsetting. However, SweepSouth holds strongly to the values of dignity and respect so you will find that your managers will back you up in difficult cases.


SweepSouth pays above industry standards and has a benefits package which is the same across staff members and is quite unmatched by other workplaces of a similar nature. We get medical aid support, pension fund contributions, cleaning credits, on-demand psychological support, and a generous leave policy.


Overall, while there have been times of struggle, I have grown immensely during my time at SweepSouth and I owe the company and its founders a debt of gratitude.
Pros
Every day is different, above industry average pay, camaraderie among colleagues
Cons
Certain periods of the year can be very challenging

SweepSouth is not a good company to work for
SweepSouth is by far the worst company I have worked for, there is absolutely nothing empowering about the company. Cold call recruitment companies and previous staff members and you'll hear what people are treated like.

Generally, you are not heard and you will be spoken to terribly on a daily basis from day 1.


I would strongly advise against working for or using this business.
