Stuck in a culture where Leaders lead with fear in stead of lead by example and support.
Chep is a very good company, not all departments are run down the drain such as the CCT department which is lead by incompetent leaders with big Ego’s. I won my CCMA case against CHEP for unfair dismissal and its sad that the company willing to gonas far as labour court amd settle instead of admitting guilt and move forward. Says allot about leadership!

Not an ethical business
Ethically i had to leave.
I did not feel that it was right to charge more then one person for the same pallets/racks/containers.

Senior management gave no support in a new environment - no training given at all when i started at the company

Great work life balance
Compared to other multinational companies operating in South Africa , CHEP is clearly a leader and puts its employees first.

Having recently won the TOP EMPLOYER South Africa award is testimony to that.
Pros
There is a lot of positive energy in the Durban office, Everyone is happy to come to work, Management are supportive, and everyone has a platform to speak up, and let their idea's be heard, clearly taking positive steps forward with regard to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, Great focus on career development.
Cons
Lack of technology in some departments. or use of old tech.

Great place to grow
good working hours , flexi time , if in the corporate environment , good worklife balance , hardest part of the job is possibly the tight deadlines managers expect you to work to. Most enjoyable part of the job, is the work office environment (Westville) - such a great bunch of people.

Pro - Their is a real culture of internal development and advancement, I have seen first hand that close to half of the positions in recruitment are filled by inward promotions of existing staff. They have a strong learning and development team, and put a real focus on their people. no 2 days are the same due to the nature of the work and the business. I have been fortunate enough to go see first hand the farms, where they grow the trees, the sawmills , where they make the pallets , the service centers , where they maintain and collect the pallets and folding transportation bins etc. CHEP offers its employees great international exposure. This is truly a multinational company operating at the highest level.


Con - There is a large gap between what permanent staff earn and what contractors earn. Unfortunately their are lot of people on contracts.
