Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 2 May 2019
Its nice to work at Unilever but the thing is, how long are you going to be a merchandiser and pack shelves everyday? It takes a lot of time to get to management. I mean you can do your drivers license and finish it while you are still a merchandiser and no one will notice you. I am still a merchandiser but am tired of packing shelves now. I am currently busy with my drivers license. Then I will go.
Unilever is a diverse company with lots of potential and room for growth

HR Business Partner (Former Employee) – Boksburg – 6 February 2019
My typical work day started with a quick meeting with my team especially on a Monday morning to ensure everybody is clear in terms of what was required in that week. Review the previous week's performance regarding attendance, overtime and the costs related to these, Ensure that all managers receive their reports and they have done their part in managing these aspects. Always touched base with union leaders to ensure that there are no IR issues that may impact on production. Do daily factory walks with my team once a week.
What i learnt from this environment is the importance of stakeholder engagement. The environment is highly unionised and therefore one cannot wish the labor representatives away. The environment was highly pressurized and work/life balance was a challenge
The size of the organisation and prospects for advancement
Field marketer (Former Employee) – Worcester, ZA – 2 February 2019
Placing orders and helping customers do their shopping and making deals with store mnagers to increase my foward share and make more sales for my company. This job has taught me alot on how to work under pressure and deal with difficult customers. My manager is such a nice person who has great management skills and who always encourages me to do more. Me and my colleagues work as a team,we treat each other with respect,as their senior they do not undermine my authority. Meeting targets on time tends to be the hardest part of my job as some of the objectives at store level are beyond my control. Having satisfied all my suppliers at the end of the day makes me enjoy my job...
