Productive Fun and Challenging with new experience
every day job was fine, and I learned a lot about HRD activities, Management was also good and the co- workers were also friendly and helpful in many ways. the hardest part of the job was travelling a lot but at the same time challenging because of the new experience on the daily basis. most enjoyable part of the job was learning and development plan for the employee because it pushes you to expand the knowledge and skill
ProsFree training meals
in the morning to make sure all the training providers are settled in, the training rooms are neat and have everything a provider might need is in order. then i make sure that the delegates arrive on time. course starts on time. refreshments are ordered and displayed. check with our cleaners, if the restrooms are neat and tidy, and the tea lady to display refreshments on time for breaks and lunch times. load all the delegates on system once attendance registers have been signed. the hardest part of the job, is to do the charge outs at the end of training session, because i have to charge even the delegates who have not attended and then let their managers know. the most enjoyable part, is putting together a monthly report together, and also putting a report of the training reactionnaire and find that my delegates were happy with the service that i have offered at their training sessions.

best company to work for
I have learned a lot from working for Barloworld, customer comes first, Professionalism, Respect from the co workers, loyalty for the brand .
Productive and fun place to be with tools and equipment of high quality
A day is filled with joyous new challenges, i`ve learned that a machine can run on one bank of cylinders without a load and sometimes you won`t recognize it, the management is though profit orientated they are safety driven and prioritize your social welfare, co-workeres are always fun to be with and very helpful at all times, there`s no hardest part of the job but only situations where by you have inadequate tools or manpower or extreme temperatures when tyring to do your job which also is rare, the most enjoyable part is when you`ve successfully completed your tasks within a short period of time and the machine is back in production!
Prosfree uniforms, lunches, accomodation, transportation
Consextreme temperatures, long hours
