A typical day at work for me was always busy and productive when I became the team leader of dispensing team.My supervisor gave me more duties and my responsibility was much bigger than before.Every morning I had to do the batch report of the batch that was being delivered that morning.Importance was that the batch was fully completed and that there was no outstanding parcels.If parcels was outstanding it had to be dispensed again.The facility had to be informed that it would be delivered the next day.I sent email to the supervisors is cases like that.I was responsible for finding locums to work in the evenings,I created a group on whatsapp for the locums which made it much easier just by sending a message asking who is available and the quantity of dispensers needed.It used to be time consuming when I had to phone the locums 1 by 1.
My supervisor was impressed when I suggested to her my idea of creating the group and she gave me the go ahead to create group.She could also address important issues on the group.It was impossible to have meetings with locums because of the workload always being huge and that time in production was very crucial because we had a deadline everyday that had to be done.
Unfortunately unforeseen circumstances occurred that was impossible to prevent in some cases like load shedding. Backup generator was lifesaver but if operations stood still for more than an hour it caused even more pressure on everyone because we had to prevent being fined if the
material handling | South Africa | 16 Oct 2019
diverse environment with enthusiastic personel/ employees
some days you would be asked to work overtime even if you were not told before or at a right time a few minutes before you go home and they ask you to work over time. but fortunately the employees at the company are always eager to go the extra mile so being for such a thing doesn't pose as a problem at all. instead we look at it as extra money for self fulfillment.
the most challenging thing we always faced with is the client time satisfaction. that is making sure parts or whatever the customer needs is there on time as there will be shortfalls if material don't rich the customer on time thus resulting penalties.
the challenge becomes even worse when the conditions are worsened by circumstances beyond anyone's control. like the weather for example the parts are unable to be offloaded at the harbour so they can come to us on time for us to send to customer on time.
that sometimes creates a bit of problems and shortages in production targets, thus making everyone run like headless chickens.
but at the end production comes back to normal with no losses as the shortages are recouped.
all thanks to the good management we have that is able to integrate relevant people and resources aiming for the next process to recover so that the delay can be easily assimilated when things are back to normal.
ProsAlways obey safety rules - very strict on that
Conszero tolerance for misconduct
Payroll Administrator | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 20 Aug 2013
The atmosphere is overwheliming in terms of the morals and values.
Coming to work in the morning is filled with anxiety as to what the day might be like. At first i am ready to take anything, but when the chalenge arrives its like an adrenalin, when i get the rush to be challenge i take on the risk as if im about to win a prize.
I have two wonderful woman who helps with admin and they make the enviroment serential when im in need of a good laugh as a day at work can be overwhelming and negative.
I have learnt to deal with diferent personalities and learnt to deal with presure and that any task put before me becomes easy with just a single deep breath.
I am still learning to deal with management and the demands as this is the best part of my day waiting to get challenged from them. I however disagree with thier level of respect for the staff and thier inconsideration in dealing with certain issues.
The best part of my job is that I get to learn and experience new challenges all the time.
I believe that any one can do anything when given the oportunity to strive in thier exellence.
ConsJust your normal leave.
Learning and Development Facilitator | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 17 Feb 2017
Very productive, encourage team work and skills development
As a CIP engineer I get to be involved in a lot of projects within the company, attend a lot of meetings and most of the time have to take work home.
I have learnt the importance of team work and why one should understand the whole supply chain and not just your environment, if you want to learn, grow and be productive.
DSV Healthcare management is very involved with operations and are very supportive.
The culture is team work and we are a Client centric company. The team (workers) are also well looked after and subsidized transport is provided if the team has to work until late.
Hardest part of the work is too much work and everyone expect their project to be prioritized and they keep pushing for an update.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the team spirit, team work and support offered in everything you do at work.
ProsCheap lunch, people and skills development and encourage growth within the company
ConsSalary very low for Engineers
Dispatcher | Parow, Western Cape | 24 Aug 2017
Love the job.
I thoroughly enjoy my job and the fact that I know I am helping someone by dispencing their medication on time. However, the hours are extremely long and sometimes a 12hr or 15hr day. I have excellent relationships that I have fostered over the years, be it the colleague, cleaner, or management. I believe in treating people fairly and this has been put in place when on the off occasion I step in as team supervisor.
I encourage open conversation with colleagues and management, after all-we spend more time at work, than with our families. So let it be pleasant!
I'm optimistic about public holidays, having to work in the extra hours in order to deliver to facilities on time, However, the feeling of excitement when the planning is done correctly in order to facilitate and see this process through.
The most challenging aspects of my job, is working with people who do not understand the logic and urgency of the type of work we do, and working with individuals, who do not want to work as a team.
Quality Assurance Analyst | Linbro Park, Gauteng | 23 May 2017
Productive, team players, growth
The company Dsv Healthcare is a a great company from personal experience.
A typical day at work would include day to day challenges, there were always deadlines to be met that kept one on your toes.
Team work was essential because a each member in different departments had to work at a certain pace to ensure we reach sla's
I learned computer skills, prioritising, team work, Obedience, quality in work and how to work under pressure.
My manager always kept me on my feet, motivating me to never give up and giving me work that forced me to show my best.
The culture was, do it right the first time so you don't have to so it again. They were a real family to me, teaching about logistics and things in different departments when I completed my duties.
The hardest part of the job was, catching up at first but I enjoyed the pressure.
The most enjoyable part was the team work that was clearly evident in our day to day duties.
Call Center Representative | South Africa | 19 Dec 2017
DSV is a pleasant company to work for you learn a lot as every day is different it never has the same challenges.
A typical day at work is when the day starts we are receiving calls from clients requesting to be contacted back as they would like to change delivery addresses or asking that we deliver at an alternative time or date. I have learnt to be patient and that the client can respond to you however you need to be professional at all times. The management team at the company is quite helpful as they are there to assist especially when there is a client who no longer wants to speak to you but to your superior because of something beyond your control. Hardest part is dealing with irate clients who don't want to listen to reason. We have our monthly meetings whereby we find out how the previous month deliveries went this is what I enjoy most.

Excellent logistic company.
They assisted with the learnership and employment
I would work for them anytime a job comes up.
I learnt discipline and time management.
My co-workers were also in the learnership programme and I met others when I was employed as a waybill clerk.
The hardest part of the job was the fact that I could not get a job in line with my UJ University qualifications. I was always told that you start low and stand a chance for better opportunities . That was not the case with me.
I got too excited earning a salary and made decisions that I regret.
I am more matured now and desperately looking for a permanent job and willing to take a job in any branch.
