Focused and Good attention to Detail
The job was intriguing in that it introduced me to a totally different system which involved checking on the clients payment status and provide necessary advise in instances where payments delays.

Informative and great working environment
It was a very relaxed environment, not too much work. I seemed to finish everything I needed to do very fast because I didn't wait for work to pile up. Anything that needed to be filed, scanned, copied or typed or signed I did or had it done it immediately. The challenging part was when I assisted the Senior Clerk with numbers to balance the order for Enviroserve. I enjoyed my work there totally.

Enjoyable Working Environment
TYPICAL DAY AT WORK AS A SENIOR LIFEGUARD

Always a busy day, as the environment is always busy.


I've learned to be extremely vigilant and expect the worst in the calmest of situations.


Supervising a team takes motivation, commitment, open-mindedness, respect, team-work and communication. The management team I worked with, was great. Trust built and always willing to teach those prepared to learn.


Mix culture, with respect for each other.


Crowd control - disliked it... Having to tell people, that we've reached our facility capacity and knowing that all they are wanting to do, is enjoy their day with family or friends.. However, I wouldn't risk the lives of others, nor put extra stress and pressure on my team.


Having a team that can communicate and interact with one another on all levels, including openness and honesty is wonderful.. It was one of my main reasons for getting up in the morning...

It all starts with you in the morning: positive mindset, briefing, expectations from them and yourself for the day ahead and motivation..

A typical day at work
Receiving of incoming calls, City of Cape town empowered my personal and professional capacity. Eskom's persisting power cuts make workload unbearable.
Pros
Good atmosphere makes great teamwork.
Cons
Employees disrespect Management, and don’t follow orders.
