I really appreciated management's ability to provide growth and development on personal and professional level for employees eager to learn more. A great experience when in operations, the energy, collaboration and all the efforts put together from general levels right up to managerial levels to achieve one thriving supply chain, that to me, is unforgettable and a true reflection of achievement.

Pros

Motivational management

Cons

Long hours, holidays and weekends

productive and friendly working environment

Know what is required management and teams are there to assists and clarify what is required from an employee. I had to familiarize my self with systems in place. Had to adjust meeting new friends and colleagues familiarize with different managers as we report to different managers per shift whether night or day shift. The hardest part was to get use to working night shift but body adjust and comply to the situation. The ever changing management is also kind of challenging because when you are used to ones style of management suddenly you change to adopt the new style the new manager is applying.

Unitrans culture.

Unitrans has a strong supportive culture. Safety is a lifestyle. The operations are system driven and guided by procedures. The communication from senior management is clear and accurate. Corporate governance is practised well and audits conducted regularly on all aspects of the business. There is a strong sense of pride in the brand. Targets and deadlines are tight.

Management is harrassing the drivers They take your money when ever like

To do the job is nice and straight forward. But to loose R400 a day for any mistake and mishap is a bit out of line Doing garages and delivering fuel to garages One have to adhere to the safety rules of the company You must be safety concious on the road and site

Productive and fun workplace

UNITRANS is a productive and fun working place , I've learned to participate in a meeting, I've learned to record everyday cost and send weekly cost to the Manager. the hardest part of the job It when it was end of the month when I have to send monthly flash report to head office. counting stock, tire stock, updating new service schedule when it was Thursday because we use to update service schedule on Thursdays. The most enjoyable part of the Job it when there is no overruns on my service schedule.

The hardest part of the job.

This is a very stable and big company to work for. The hardest part of the job is to get promoted when you proof yourself almost everyday. Long hours make the salary worth it, but only for so long.
