fun place to be
Management was hard core when it came to reaching target, making customers feel welcome and making sure your department was up to date. The hardest part was when I had customer complains about a certain item that needed to be ordered asap and it wasn't. In that case, as well trained as I was on how to deal with an unhappy customer it was hard yet always a learning curve for me. The most enjoyable part about previous job would be putting a smile on more than 5 customers(a happy customer) and of course receiving incentives at the end of the year

Learning and Development Facilitator | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 19 Dec 2017
Head Office Johannesburg Learning and Development
My opinion of Learning and Development was so bad at Cape Union Mart. I will not put blame on the Company but as an individual i really almost lost my confidence and my ability. I really do not wish anyone to go through the humiliation I experienced and also almost doubted my potential. I am glad I left the toxic environment and I really wish all them well. It really was not my place. I have so much passion for Learning and Development but not in the kind of environment I was in.The CEO is the best ever.

Management is hard to please,you need to know someone to get promoted in time or else you wait for years.colour is also an issue,the lighter you are the better chances you have to be promoted.

Productive workplace
The environment is healthy and the employees get along well. Management is open to listen to employees concerns and the HR department is very hands-on. Payslips are issued without fail every month and salary discrepancies are communicated well in-time.

What are the tips for one to do well in a interview for management post? What kinder Questions can one expect there?
Asked 03 Jul 2017
One needs to research as much as possible about the company, use the internet... You need to know the difference between hiking and camping. Do your research on the in house products they keep and sell, from your K-way to your leasure wear. If you get a question like, "what are the 5 things you would take when hiking?" You should answer that simple and quick because you would have done your research prior. Lastly, Goodluck to who ever is going for an interview. I hope my passage was of assistance to you in attaining that job.
