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

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.

Job at Unilever fieldsales is so especially for youths, who have dreams in life, because the harder you work,the highest you climb,a lot of responsibility is in order because the shortage of stock will be on your shoulders,the expired stock on sales floor is your job in line, knowledge about entry and exit of stock should be your snumbern

By working at unilever i learnt a lot about the company especially the division that i was serving. I got the chance to have an insight of how the machinery oparates to produce the soap. They adhere to the four management segments, because they are organised, motivating, well leading and they are also controlling the company well.

Working at one of the unilever offices would be great, cause of there salary/benefits. But working on the field is just stressful and tiring. Good experience though.

Excellent company to work for. Hoping to be permanent. Cause when they write the job description they say you become permanent after 3mnths. But otherwise its a fast paced working environment.

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.
Pros
Company car, petrol card, i pad and celphone. Regular gift vouchers for making target, anual bonus and a profit share bonus.
Cons
To little time for admin in the day, which normally take time away from my family as it has to be done at night.

Great company to work for. Really takes care of their employees. Company that understands family time is important. No working outside of office hours. If you are based at head office there are so many other benefits over and above salary benefits
