exciting and a lot of hard work
-When store managers dont wanna give you some negotiated space and and yet you have to build those displays to meet your deadlines.
-Never to promise them something that you wont be able to do ,and when you have to give them feedback on something make sure you get back to them and give them feedback.

-working with amazing managers who does not discriminate and treat each and everyone equally at work.

- everyone is living according to the smollan values.

-meeting new people, managing yourself, working as a team, managing your team,driving sales, being rewarded for all the good work that you have done, and also attending meetings which keeps you on the loop of what is expected on us and how to deal with difficult situations and how to solve most of the problems encountered

efficient and focus workplace
the environment is FMCG thus a bit of deviation from the planned diary is standard. Management does all there is to do to relax the climate though. At the time of working there the union was still extremely strong but with declining overall influence.

How the Great have fallen!
Unilever used to be known as an amazing place of work, with amazing benefits, but most of all, a place to really grow your career amongst vibrant, skilled individuals. However, this is no longer the case. Unilever is more about results than it is about it being for the people. A very disappointing time spent working here.

Hardworking .
Always leave your personal issues at home it will intefere in your productivity at work . Ive learned to get what you want in life you have to work twice as hard and smart . Ive learned so much as to work with a team and even lead the team on specific days where its needed . Management is well organised and know what theyre doing and who they are employing.

A very competitive environment with opportunities for growth.
Open door policy where you feel welcome and you're afforded the opportunity develop and explore other avenues within the company. Discipline is most important because of agile working culture.

Great culture and learning/developing environment
Unilever is the school of business marketing. The learning experience has been the best for me, coupled with the people and environment.
The culture allows you to embrace yourself but also pushed you to tap into your potential.
Pros
Staff discounts on products. Medical aid benefits. Pension fund benefits. Performance bonus
Cons
Flexible working hours. Stagnant growth (bottle neck for progression opportunities)

Ive learned that you must be early or on time especially on busy days at work so tht you make sure everything is available on the shelves
I enjoyed working for the company ensuring that the right amount of goods are available in store packing shelves building gondola ends it was exciting

Productive
At Unilever I was exposed in an environment that consists lots of People and lot of Challenges, where I was to live and work together with people who sometimes do not get along, where i found myself in between them. This thought me how to handle business without mixing it with personal life

I love Unilever because I enjoyed their culture and their standard
I was a early shift kind of guy because I had to offfload DC truck in order to put all the out of stock on shelf.As I was new in this industry but Unilever gave me a chance to prove myself as I did just that,they even taught me how to make returns, how to make orders how to clean shelf,(shelf health) etc.
Pros
Enjoyable
Cons
Competitive
