busy days, lots of admin work. work/personal life balance needs work. company provides training, but doesnt always follow the training provided. hardest part is dealing with all the different personalities from clients and store managers.
Apart from everything at Smollan I learnt about the true basics of interacting with people you meeting for the first time(customers) learnt to adapt to any working environment without no pressure, learnt to treat complaining customers and deal with them the most level headed as possible
Smollan isn't treating us fairly when it comes to salaries.because I have been working there for the past 8 years but am still earning less than R4000.and according to online jobs the fieldmarketer position is paid R8000 upward but am a fieldmarker but getting half of this money

Smollan Group is great company to learn and further gain work experience. They have a great culture their culture is about the people meaning that people are assets and they easily recognize and reward their people
typical work day is fast paced report intensive coaching and effective management of staff how to be a more effective manager how to chair a hearing healthy office workplace enviroment lots of changes interaction between business units
Busy job, handle alot of different accounts. Great experience Learnt, management was very organised. Out of the office mostly so cant say much on the workplace, Hardest part there was to many accounts to manage.
My experience here at Smollan is quite a challenging experience. It is a very good company to work for, however I need to spread my wings and be an asset for another company. I've learnt quite a lot cause I've worked on 2-different systems which I've mastered, hence wanting to move and learn something else as well.Nothing is too hard for me as I believe in myself and doing any job to the best of my ability. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with me team-mates to make sure our dept stands out in the Finance - dept.
