I enjoyed the sales and management positions very much, however, current management ,eaves a lot to be desired.
I found the treatment of staff bordering on the inhumane. Targets and company procedures change monthly and make it difficult to assess what the company actually wants from its staff.
No bonuses, holidays or consistent incentives. basic salary is very low for the job required, and as mentioned previously, targets were erratic. At one point the target structure changed 4 months in a row consecutively, and is structured in such a way that sales improves, but staff still see no real financial benefit.
The treatment of sales staff was terrible, and something that I battled with as a store manager. The Bloemfontein division does not take the human element into account, and I found myself burying my friend while still having to be at work by 12:00 the same day.
supplier incentives. networking. fast paced.
no real growth, and you will be diminished to company stock, rather than a person
