fun working enviroment
working for barloworld logistics for the past 10 years was a life changing experience for me and the kids. The benefits were great. Recieving a thirteenth cheque and a fourteenth cheque was a bonus in itself. I would have retired with barloworld, unfortunately, we moved over to another company under Section 197.
Learning and Development Manager | Durban, KwaZulu-Natal | 11 Jan 2020
Growth and Development
Barloworld has very high standards for their employees, but if you deliver on the standards, you are well looked after. Great salary & excellent benefits - particularly in senior positions.
Data Analyst | Durban, KwaZulu-Natal | 15 Oct 2018
Always productive and learning something new everyday
Enjoyable, pressurizing at the same time..but no complaints at the end of the day you have been productive, which is what I enjoy. I learned to work as a team, respect, I learned about transport and logistics. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. Management at Barloworld was always approachable...always willing to help and listen. Interacting with third party, been given the opportunity to make decisions but always having a guiding hand. Overall I enjoy the transport ,logistics environment.
ProsEveryone is given an opportunity to voice their opinions freely without any prejudice.
ConsLong Hours
Driver Trainer | Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal | 19 Nov 2014
I enjoyed working in this company but the problem is that it takes long for the management to acknowledge the effort you put through for improvement. I like study new things every day.
Driver Trainer | Dwaalboom, Limpopo | 24 Feb 2019

Professional, Good People
Great people to work with very professional. Sometimes to focused on the right result instead of the people element. HR are not focused on supporting the business.
ProsFlexible working hours
ConsHR policies and procedures
Transportation Coordinator | Boksburg, Gauteng | 22 Feb 2015
Firstly to ensure all teams have enough human resources to achieve all our expectations as team making sure all people are prepared for our functions. Advise with alternatives where necessary, reporting all in our daily meeting. When a good hardworking team player is at faulty and I suppose to discipline him or her and later making sure is still motivated. When the team are being given what he really deserved during an appraisal time.
ProsGain share which is given through team performance.
ConsNo overtime only rest days for more hours worked.

Professional fun place towork
a typical day at work was professional and focused. I gained an incredible amount of knowledge through both training and information sharing. Being part of the management team, our primary focus was customer based, however never neglecting not considering employee happiness and well being. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching employees grow within the company as well as the financial growth and productivity for all stake holders.
ProsNo micro management
ConsSometimes VERY long hours
Ejecutivo/a de atención a clientes | l'Ametlla del Vallès, Barcelona provincia | 02 Jul 2015
personas muy cercanas y amigables,buen ambiente de trabajo.
Mi horario era partido. Por las mañanas nos dedicábamos a introducir los pedidos en el ordenador, atender llamadas de clientes,facturar,etc. Me adapté muy deprisa al trabajo y a las compañeras que me avisaban todas las mañanas para ir a tomar el café. Por las tardes siempre íbamos a contra reloj, debía realizar las cartas de porte y las hojas de distribución de los chóferes y éstos no esperaban a nadie..aún así teníamos muy buen ambiente de trabajo, conversábamos con ellos y se hacia muy ameno. Dos de mis mejores amig@s en la actualidad l@s conocí en éste trabajo.Tengo muy buen recuerdo de mis tiempos como administrativa.
Proscercanía con mis superiores, confianza.
