Technical Consultant | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 28 Aug 2014
Fun and relaxed, but performance driven
My typical day at work involved expanding the syllabus as well as teaching it to staff members. I learned to build rapport with staff as well as to get buy in from crucial stake holders. I also learned to work within a corporate structure and how to conduct business analysis. I had good relations with all my coworkers and was considered generally well liked. I found that management was generally close minded and very much in their own perspective but I have been having more and more success in getting by in from higher management levels.
ProsProfit share
ConsI could not perform to the level that I wanted with out working overtime, I was not rewarded for my extra work

My review
Platinum Life isn't the best place to work at. The leaders were only nice when they needed you. They set targets that seem reachable but make them hard to reach.

Consultant | Sandton, Gauteng | 02 Oct 2017
Amazing high quality, fun, friendly & professional workplace & management
Not a lot of companies can be compared to Platinum Life. The quality of their management, benefits, training, understanding for each individuals work needs are amazing. The hardest part is working with client's policies who needs to cancel because of finances, however, the most enjoyable part is being trained properly how to assist clients with their current needs & help them not to loose their benefits & end a telephone conversation with a great compliment from a client regarding our excellent service & caring manner. The entire working atmospere is wonderful to work in. So proud of what this company has achieved so far.
ProsExtremely good salaries, company benefits, Jewish holidays, profit share, flexi hours
ConsDriving from Pretoria East to Sandton every day

Call Center Representative | Hatfield, Gauteng | 01 Aug 2016
Productive and fun workplace
Learn to deal with various people with a range of different questions. Teaches you to always be calm and listen to what other people have to say 1st. Friendly environment made fun by means of competitions and prices. The hardest part of the day would be when there are no answers and one struggles to make target.
ProsFree lunch
ConsUnpredictable days

Outbound Call Center Representative | Sandton, Gauteng | 03 Nov 2013
Fun workplace, But I"d still like to work in the field I studied for
I think its fantastic that they give graduates the opportunity to earn some decent money, even if it isn't in their field of expertise. A typical day at work is to reach to target given to you which is not always physically possible. I learned that if you work hard at anything you will succeed. My management and co workers are fantastic. The hardest part is the mundane acpect and most enjoyable part is that we are all on the same boat
Prosfree popcorn
Conslong hours initially, repetitive

Customer Service Representative | Pretoria, Gauteng | 29 Oct 2018
Productive and fun workplace
Seeing that the Pretoria branch is a student centre, it is a fun (and professional) work environment, teaching us all about hard work and commitment. We acquire and develop the following skills: Customer relations, communication, problem-solving, time management, diligence, qualitative work results, and reaching our targets, while creating and maintaining a professional work culture.

Fun place to work at
Its a good company, only flaw is that there is no job security. More effort could be done to help trainees at an equal rate with the leads provided, all in all its enjoyable and never a dull moment
ProsFun environment
ConsNo job security
