Administration Clerk (Current Employee), Bethlehem, FSNovember 20, 2014
Daily consultations with clients regarding the administration deceased estates, liquidation & distribution account (Insolvency), small claims court and domestic violence. What the job taught me well was to be open, sensitive and respectful to people from all walks of life as those coming to me have different difficulties in their lives where I have – more... to attentively listen to them in order to try find resolutions to their challenges. Though I work unsupervised, I have a great team of supportive colleagues around me when the going gets tough. The hardest part about my job is sitting down with any person who would really need assistance and not being able to provide any remedy or relief to them. What I enjoy most is interacting with people and giving them hope of a better future when some have lost all hope. – less

Unproductive and no growth
Administration Clerk (Current Employee), Atteridgeville, GPNovember 7, 2014
- to do my daily duties with enthusiasm without any hassle
- teamwork is important as much as working independantly
- if find it very imparative to use channel of communication so that every employee and employer can supply knowledge and skills appropriately,
- it is important to use interpersonal skills when working with co-workers and to listen to – more... their inputs so that we may have strong organisational culture and win their hearts so that they will perform very well.
- to work had in providing service delivery and not to get a simple "thank for your hard work"
- to have job description and to meet deadlines. – less

Admin Clerk (Former Employee), Rustenburg, NWOctober 21, 2014
Pros: we get to play (sport) as department, we celebrate functions together, e.g. heritage day
I get to work, prepare/ test the court machine for recordings, write the following day's charge sheets, sit in court or any trails, pleas and bail applications.

Learned a lot and then left
Network Administrator (Former Employee), Lincoln, NESeptember 26, 2014
Pros: learned new things
Cons: no job security
I did not understand that as a contract employee, my employer would change it type they went to bid for a new contract. The company that won the contract was your new employer and could decide to keep you or let you go. Your 401K, sick/vacation time changed each time also.

I wore a pager and worked 2nd shift. I might be required to come in early or – more... go assist a different office.

I learned a lot and when I felt I had learned all I could, I left. There was no room for advancement. – less

human resource officer (Former Employee), East London, ECSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: transport claim
Cons: long hours
The day when I was doing shortlsting at some other town when I got into that office I did shortlisting and invited candidates to come to interviews,I travelled back to my office in East London, I discovered that I left a few pile of applications. I was scared of what I was to do because even the panel travel from different towns so its waste of money – more... and time, but I looked at those applicants who applied but never got the chance to be screen, I made an appointment with my supervisor I told him that I have left some applications he understood and consoled me to say mistakes happen we will have to re-do the shortlist, I explained to all the panel they did not have a problem they set another date and we re-shortlisted. I have learnt that honesty is the best medicine at all times. my co workers were were a definite team. My hardest part of the job was when I had to advise panel to be inline with policy when they recruit when the panel deviate. Most enjoyable part of the job is to listen to candidates on interviews learn how different candidates respond to questions. – less
