Overall Reviews at Ackermans

Administrative Assistant | East Rand, Gauteng | 09 Jan 2020
was very interesting to work at ackermans we were like family together under one roof
to always do your best and work as a team I never had hard times we were all trying our best as no one is perfect , if you cant do it the first time right then you try again , you do not give up
Stocker | Mafikeng, North West | 09 Dec 2019
It is a good company, with friendly employees who are supportive
It can be a very stressful full job sometimes especially during the festive season and when it's back to school times. They can improve their conditions by offering casual workers some uniform. Nonetheless it's a good company with friendly employees.
Finance Partner | Pretoria, Gauteng | 11 Nov 2019

Am ready to stand up to do my best in every situation at work. Able to work under every condition. Able to have team work. I acquire a lot of experience
Merchandiser | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 31 Jan 2014
its good to work on challenging environment,it builds your personality,strength.
every day was a challenge,because i had to meet new different people on daily bases,who has different charecterictics. I learnt to be always patient,understanding,to listen,fast.I learnt how to manage different individuals, co-workers was always fun to be around them,i normally forget even if i was not feeling good about something,most of the time it was laughter.the only time where dont see eye to eye is whereby there's work related issue that needs to be resolved at the end of the day.Hardest part was whereby i have to do all the task same time and yet still render a good service with a smile to a customer.I always enjoyed where everbody was in good mood,when the customers dont complain about poor service.
Prosbonuses for making target on a certain month

Housekeeper | Midrand, Gauteng | 02 Sep 2019
Fun, easy and friendly working environment
Working under pressure. I learned how to operate a till, customer service and dealing with difficult customer. The management makes sure that everything runs smoothly. And the work culture we respect each other, work as a team. Dealing with difficult customer and having a lot to do at a short space of time. Interacting with people different people and learning about their lives
ConsLong hours
Shop Assistant | Pretoria, Gauteng | 21 Mar 2017
Stressing, bad experience and no time for family
This is not a good place to be at all, yes for a start up and for school leavers is better cos u wil get cosmetics money unlike seating at home. Bad A

ConsLong hours, no financial security
Human Resources Manager | Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape | 03 Sep 2018
Very Exciting but travelling is a challenge
very busy , challenging, encouranges one to always think out of box, I have gained an extensive experience on partnering skills, conflict resolution, operating independently, . Company I work for is big on culture, recognition for hardwork and respect for its employees
ProsFlexible working hours
Stocker | KwaZulu-Natal | 31 Oct 2017

Tax Accountant | Cape Town, Western Cape | 24 Mar 2020
Amazing green machine
Ackermans is a fantastic company to work for. The culture is dynamic young bright and crisp. Transparency is key especially for our CEO - you are always informed about events and changes within the organisation. Not to mention the benefits are amazing. Staff is well look after even though salaries are not as market related but you offset lack of with benefits and having peace of mind knowing that your company cares for you and your loved ones. I had a ball here :)
