A bit draining tbh and not sure theres much room for advancement, draining like other call centres but it was good enough for the time when i needed it

Nice and chilled...

There's no better place I've worked at other than here... My manager was a very intelligent person who misses nothing and was always on point. Gifted is what he was...

Pros

Free coffee and tea... WiFi as well...

Cons

Long hours indeed...

Productive workplace

Employees are hard workers (drivers and management staff). Everyone's busy and everything is fast paced. Most enjoyable part of the day is delivering deliveries to people and seeing smiles on their faces. Hardest part of the job is the waiting for food orders. Competition has increased significantly over the years and there are more drivers now, meaning that you can go hours on the job without receiving food orders.

Product and fun place but a bit stressful

First year was very awesome at the company, until the management changed. Things turned out to be very difficult for everyone, crazy shifts, hourly target is too high. You don't get time to rest except for lunch break. So much pressure from team leaders and managers aswell.

Pros

Free transportation for overtime

Cons

Working Monday to Monday

Toxic Work Environment

At first it seems "cool" to work for an "almost like" Amazon company. But once you're employed you'll find unfair practices and favoritism towards specific groups. Management is poor, Senior Management is even more poor and practice favoritism and discrimination if you're not "part" of a specific culture.

Pros

If you're desperate and need a job and this was the last job on earth.

Cons

Non binary thinking culture, Discrimination, Long hours, Terrible Shifts

Stressful off-peak hours

Atleast you have time to sort other things out while waiting for delivery. It can get frustrating sometimes when your work peers are getting orders consecutively and you will be waiting

Fun place but no money

Honestly it ddnt work out for me I had to buy my own uniform wich was R1200 while I just started the job you buy your own Data and the app chaws a lot of Data it was more like I was helping them to get the deliveries,my car ,my phone ,my petrol,my data and it was R12,50 per delivery.you get paid less than what you invested,parcels are given to long time employees they benefit more .the new people you deliver food .

Suck up to managers

I have learnt that in order to get anywhere in this company u need to suck up to management. They advance their friends who doesn't know policy or anything and the ones who are so skilled get pushed to the side line. Pay is junk

Too much

They expect too much from their staff. If you are an introvert they force you to take part in their activities and it’s never just about work. They always complain about getting work done but always have time to waste.

Fun place to work

I was at at their social media department. I really enjoyed working there. I had no problems with management during my stint there. Best call centre I ever worked in. Sad thing was that it was seasonal, I was really disappointed when I found out that I wouldn't be permanent.

Pros

Relaxed environment

Cons

Long working hours, low salary
