Salary was too little

Management was not fair. Constant deductions from your little salary. So much stress and work yet so little paid. Cut salaries over a year due to covid-19 and was not raised since. The hours was long 10-11 hour shifts. Mangers are rude and speak to their employees in an unfriendly manner. Complaining to head office about any issues having in your workplace does not get acknowledged.

Pros

Commission if you work hard only in a busy located store

Cons

long hours and little pay

Life at Vodacom

Working at Vodacom was a bliss and a learning curve, the only problem was working late shifts and not enough benefits. The workplace was full of fun, young people so it was motivating to be part of a group of people that are my peers and want to win as much as I do. The only down side was that it took time for your career to advance and grow from one position to the next

Pros

Fun workspace, full of energy and young people

Cons

Short paying, late shift

Employee insight

Very demanding environment with stringent targets and procedures. Time keeping and punctuality are very strongly driven. The environment has a warm homelike feel to it, everyone is like 1 big family.

Productive and fun working place

Good company to work for, improvements still required though. Most policies and processes are not being followed to ensure a smooth running of the business acytivities.Staff needs to ensure compliance to change management methodologies and the integrated landscape by monitoring and reporting on project governance, control, allocation of financial resourcing and capacity.

Pros

Good cell phone allowance

Cons

Working long hours

110%all the time

We work hard but still have time for a joke. We bent backward to make a plan to keep the network operational. One big caring family. First is everything second nothing.
