-When store managers dont wanna give you some negotiated space and and yet you have to build those displays to meet your deadlines. -Never to promise them something that you wont be able to do ,and when you have to give them feedback on something make sure you get back to them and give them feedback. -working with amazing managers who does not discriminate and treat each and everyone equally at work. - everyone is living according to the smollan values. -meeting new people, managing yourself, working as a team, managing your team,driving sales, being rewarded for all the good work that you have done, and also attending meetings which keeps you on the loop of what is expected on us and how to deal with difficult situations and how to solve most of the problems encountered
the environment is FMCG thus a bit of deviation from the planned diary is standard. Management does all there is to do to relax the climate though. At the time of working there the union was still extremely strong but with declining overall influence.
Unilever is the University of learning. You learn and is exposed to things that not many companies can match. The training is tops.People are motivated. Meet a lot of different people / expats etc. You are exposed to state of the art process systems
exposed to world class learning
Salary increase is low.
You had to do sales travel a lot working 6 days a week no day off had to work even December time i had a good relationship with the manager the most interesting part about the job is that we recieved commission for every sale that we did and there was a target that we had to reach the salary was good for someone who doesn't have a child
12 hours shift 4 day shift Safety priority,The benefits are quite fair, you get shift incentives,gift,salary is very well market related, for me it was a distance walk to work.
Unilever used to be known as an amazing place of work, with amazing benefits, but most of all, a place to really grow your career amongst vibrant, skilled individuals. However, this is no longer the case. Unilever is more about results than it is about it being for the people. A very disappointing time spent working here.
Always leave your personal issues at home it will intefere in your productivity at work . Ive learned to get what you want in life you have to work twice as hard and smart . Ive learned so much as to work with a team and even lead the team on specific days where its needed . Management is well organised and know what theyre doing and who they are employing.
Open door policy where you feel welcome and you're afforded the opportunity develop and explore other avenues within the company. Discipline is most important because of agile working culture.
Unilever is the school of business marketing. The learning experience has been the best for me, coupled with the people and environment. The culture allows you to embrace yourself but also pushed you to tap into your potential.
Staff discounts on products. Medical aid benefits. Pension fund benefits. Performance bonus
Flexible working hours. Stagnant growth (bottle neck for progression opportunities)
Ive learned that you must be early or on time especially on busy days at work so tht you make sure everything is available on the shelves
I enjoyed working for the company ensuring that the right amount of goods are available in store packing shelves building gondola ends it was exciting
