Higher level colleagues have a bad attitude towards lower level colleagues.
Laboratory technician (Former Employee) – Cape Town – 19 April 2017
High salaries, low work, high training; if you can get through the nepotism and affirmative action. The bureaucracy will hamper any clerical submissions, but no one seems to mind blaming it - for example, waiting for a month for a computer terminal - as it means more time watching series and films on your mobile.

Early in the morning, before starting time everyone will greet each other. The work-ethic was very high, everybody start on time and push for the highest level of production.
We have set days and time for staff meetings. The supervisor would enquire now and then on difficult tasks, in order to assist. The co-workers are all very friendly and helpful. We all were subject to strict turn-around times for task -completion.
The hardest part of the job was to deal with difficult clients, who appears to be unreasonable. I managed to exercise great patience and personal care to clarify any misunderstandings with clients.

Intern (Current Employee) – Langebaan, WC – 11 December 2014
A typical day at the work place starts at 08:00 - 16:30. Where I would set up the computers for the users to have access to it. I learned to adapt to different circumstances and to different personalities. My telephone etiquette and working with people got better, since I helped out at the Thusong Centre when our centre is not busy. I've got to know so many people through communicating verbally and non-verbally. I get along with all my co-workers.
In registry things can get pretty hectic because of all the incoming and outgoing post that takes place on a day to day basis. You need to be able to deal with people and their attitudes, you need lots of patience.
A typical day at Dot P would be coming in and immediately hearing the laughter and warmth, we were more than co-workers, they were family. I learned that what people say about Government is not always true, that there are hard working individuals trying to make productivity in this country a reality. Management at Dot P was the best I have ever come across. My co-workers like i said was my family, my working life at Department of the Premier was by far the most enjoyable because of the people I had the chance to work with. The hardest part of my day was locating a document when it wasn't on the file it needed to be. The most enjoyabe part was being surrounded by people who really were passionate about what they do and also about each other
I am always the first one in the office. I get there and see my tasks for the day. By the time my colleagues arrive I am already in work mode. I have learnt a lot from this job. Firstly, I learnt that patience is really virtue. I also learnt how to manage my time and myself. As a result I always have enough time on my hands. Furthermore, I learnt the importance of working in teams. Teamwork can be very good for projects/ companies. It gives me great pleasure when my colleagues are looking at me present my findings. It makes me feel like part of the team.
