Document Reviewer (Current Employee) –  Mobeni, KwaZulu-Natal22 February 2016
most days I come in early so that I can be able to check emails and get ready for the day ahead. The hardest part is when you don't get the right information from co-workers and the information is required in the meeting and you don't have an idea. being a document reviewer requires you to be able to work with everyone and know and understand people's personality and culture diversity. What I have learnt is that it is good to have strategy of getting people to do what is right without you having to fight with them.
