Overall Reviews at Cell C
Latest technological advances/equipment
Very vibrant, young and enthusiastic individuals who often made the work place fun. Being a start up company most policies and procedures were made up as the job required. This often lead to many trial and error situation resulting in time wasting
ProsModern work environment
Service Centre Sales Consultant
A typical day at work would be doing customer queries, Check the warehouse stock availability in order to prepare for the next order, check if the orders i have placed last week and during the week have arrived and basically receive them into stock, as the 2IC when my suipervisor is not available i have to see to it that all customers leave the Service Centre happy and satisfied with the service received from other Sales Consultant. Check which Handsets are new on the market and make sure i see whether the warehouse has them or not. Ask across other departments administrators what handsets they might need from us that we currently don't have and then place the order. Had such a great team to work with. The hardest Part of the Job comes when i have a traffic of orders waiting to be done while sometimes stock would be short and i have to place orders and Customers are also queuing for assistance, then my boss would insist that i finish the orders but then on the other had her boss does not want to see the queue, so he would come directly to me and insist that i do clients and leave everything im doing, is like i have to divide myself, just the feeling i would get whenever that happened.
The Fun part of my job would basically be everything about customer service and having very nice and friendly customers, what makes up most of my day would be seeing everyone walking out of the service centre happy.

Cell c is a demanding but fun environment to work at.
Work with a diversity of products and services. responsible for all the infrastructure requirements within in Cell C. main areas include, infrastructure, site builds, franchise store builds, canteen, travel office, security, energy etc.
Currently have 5 subordinates reporting to me. Three contract specialists, two buyers.
I enjoyed my 9months contract with Cell C, working under pressure and meeting all the deadlines.
have learned to give every person a second chance, because first impressions can often be misleading.
ProsI had no benefits since I was in a contract for 9 months only.
ConsI have only worked long hours in month end, otherwise work started at 08:00 and we knocked off at 17:00 with an hour lunch in between.
I enjoyed working for Cell C. I was at Cell C for 12 years. I got good experience from them and good knowledge. I miss some of my colleagues and sometime miss Cell C. I had some good times there.
One of SA Best Companies
Best company anyone can ever work for.
I grew in leaps and bounds in my career at this company, I travelled and got to meet so many different people which strengthened my skills as a facilitator.
The people were warm and always willing to assist one another.
The hardest part of my job was being away from home too often and the best part was being appreciated.
I know that in business there are always changes which are good as you can only learn and grow from them. I enjoy challenges and most of all liaising with people. This is such an inspiration to me as people are the heart of every company. Being a good listener is also the key to success as without that you are unable to perform any task given to you. I am very motivated and enjoy all different departments that I have worked in. It has been challenging but I must say rewarding as well. It has allowed me to interact with different people and understand our products more that I offer to our clientele.
