Branch Manager, Vryburg, North West - 16 October 2017
A typical day at work would be pre -planned the previous as to what needs to be done in the particular day, but you will also have the adhoc things like customer complaints that will take priority and what is left in that day to complete you can continue with the days tasks, if you don't get to everything you will plan for it for the following day.
I have learned that one must plan to work and most importantly , work the plan.
There is a common objective in place, and every manager with his dfiferent management style with get to it in their own way. Some will give you the neccesary training and support, get your buy in , will make sure, you know what is expected off you and allow you the platform to do your job. others on the other hand will micro manage you to the bone.
The culture is to focus on the people and create a healthy work environment.
The hardest part of the job was how to acquire new clients monthly, based upon the town and area you found yourself in, so basically you had to know the client base and their specific needs and how our product offer could meet that need to achieve ones objective.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the constant for growth, so one will not become board in position
