Racist, bigoted and no room for growth

High paced environment for the lower staff but short paced decision making at the top... Stifling growth. Not a place for a career driven individual. Highly punitive environment!

Pros

Flexible working hours

Cons

Long hours, bad pay, racist management, no room for growth, and highly punitive

Fun work place

It was challenging working there, because you have to make sure that each outlet you went too you had to make sales...but it was fun at the same time and I enjoyed working there...making sales and reaching the target every weekend it was a learning phase for me and it taught me so much, working in groups .

Pros

Free accommodation and food

Cons

Long hours

Dishonest from top to bottom

This pathetic place had people working there who had knowingly stolen millions of rand without taking it further. I had t report it to SARS. This dishonest company also retrenched me without a warning because I was the only one who did not belong to a nonsense, time-wasting union. I don't care if this rubbish company still exists. They treated me like rubbish and had no idea about working procedures or the law. This place was a typical third-world rubbish company.

It was very good to work there

It was very exciting as it was my first job. I started working with the company as market developer as a contract worker. We use to go with company Raps to the villages to convince customers to star selling our brand. It wasn’t easy but it took a dedicated person to do that.

If you are looking for a place to get used to working

UNB is a good place to work. Not a place to look for growth. it offers great experience in the sorghum industry to learn as this is the only company manufacturing traditional beer.

Management is not focussed on company goal.

Support employees that show iniative and out perform and analyse better than manager to achieve goals and drive down costs, ( reduse waste, shrinkage) while improving the overall production efficiencies. Check my record performances while working there and implement the strategic tasks that I performed.

People must want to be at work

Working with diverse cultures it is important to understand what drive people to success. I have found that the more the business become successful the more people become committed to contribute to the business. The challenge is to get to that point. By setting the example and leading from the front, it is achievable. Nothing breeds success like success!!
