At Unilever I was exposed in an environment that consists lots of People and lot of Challenges, where I was to live and work together with people who sometimes do not get along, where i found myself in between them. This thought me how to handle business without mixing it with personal life
I was a early shift kind of guy because I had to offfload DC truck in order to put all the out of stock on shelf.As I was new in this industry but Unilever gave me a chance to prove myself as I did just that,they even taught me how to make returns, how to make orders how to clean shelf,(shelf health) etc.
The organizational structure and culture is superb, it’s only problem it’s the evolution of ways of production, where lot of production is getting automated and employees are losing jobs, you cannot really say you have secured job more especially if you’re on the floor...overall it’s has reasonable salaries with better benefits
Working in a fast paced enviroment, target driven company and way above the rest in the same field. Looking after field staff although on par with competitors financially would decrease staff turnover even more(less people resigning) especially merchandisers and fieldmarketers
They promote juniors with not enough experience to Management positions. Managers are the drivers of the organizations. So, if something is not right in Management, everything else is not oil for success. Employees do not understand the value of conducting a proper research. And also , they do not how to conduct a root cause analysis.
Really loved it in '97 to' 98 and enjoyed it less as it became more globalised & bureaucratic towards 2008. Dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot

At Unilever South-Africa we see up to 10 customers a day depending on the area. Our day will include a sampling a client on one of our product either via a made up sample on a demo in the kitchen. I love working with the staff and showing them new ideas and recipes.
