Through the day I completed my duties , testing, localizing and clearing faults with customers. Answering phones getting calls from customers and technician. I also provided strong customer services and resolved customer fault. I have learned a lot on how to communicate with customers and how to resolved issues when customer reported a fault. As Employees we were flexible, passionate, friendly , Energetic. Hardest part of the job is when the cable is stolen and the company took time to replace the cable , customers kept on calling everyday to find out when the cable will be replaced. ln my last job we worked together as a team and I really enjoyed team work

The customer is mostly rude towards you who represent the company. You learn how to patient with people and handle pressured situations. Management is always on your neck about something. The hardest part is to work towards nothing, you know for a fact that you will not be promoted. The hours are nice and I love to work in a technical field.
Pros
Office hours
Cons
The company

As a leading communications company, it opens ones mind to the deeper meaning of integrity whilst there is a very vibrant spirit of supportiveness. A strong sense of group collaboration whilst at the same time one is totally challenged to operate strongly as an individual; a great culture of interdependence
Pros
Able to work well as an individual yet with the backing of a very supportive group
Cons
Attention to individual acknowledgement

It was a good experience working with Telkom. I don't have anything more to say, however I would recommend people to apply if they are keen to work for Telkom.

An early start to the day is required to work here. The environment is open and there are spaces available (CHILL areas) to take a quick break from the fasted paced work ethic. There is also large eating area's, spa's, gyms and outside seating places. The management is well-experienced and provide a a sense of security and belonging to the workplace.The hardest part is keeping up with well educated colleagues, But colleagues are collaborative and well-mannered. I enjoyed the exhibitions Telkom held not only for customers but for the employees as well. I was fortunate enough to meet the IDOLS contestants of 2020.
Pros
Huge campus
Cons
Long hours and fast-paced

In my opinion, people should be rotated within the company, periodically, say after every five years, especially those that are in a technical environment. This will enhance multiskilling of the workforce.
Pros
As an Ops. Manger in CNFO, you need to be continually for escalations after hours.
Cons
No compensation for Ops Managers, to attend to escalations after working hours

The initial working days I won't dwell in as it was just about learning, work and the environment.I have learnt a lot from my work level operations ,even to higher level Management as I had opportunities to hold for Management at times,that opening your mind in terms of policies and procedures understanding and also the leadership role.My studies on the other hand helped me to be versed in all the work policies , procedures ,and be law versed about work legalities , fairness ,conditions of employment .This includes work culture and the environmental issues within which the Enterprise operates.Enjoying working hard at work helps because it educates you as much of the day time is spend at work.
Pros
A chance given to Bargaining Unit to clear Employment disparities.
Cons
Employment cases that were wrongly resolved, resulting in retrenchment.
