Overall Reviews at Platinum Life
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
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
Conslong hours initially, repetitive
Stressful, but enjoyable environment
Strict management, lots of work, required one to manage time wisely. The job taught me a lot about perseverance and work ethic. Great co-workers, positive, surrounded with lots of young graduates. Lots of opportunities for growth and lots of material for improving the one's skill in terms of telemarketing.
ProsGreat salaries, no weekends
ConsShort Lunches, Long hours
Best company with growth
Excellent working environment a company with growth with good and loving management but high pressured environment that grows and teaches you its very educational

Good work environment to work at

Good working hours
Jewish holidays a plus
Work culture great
Meeting targets exciting when incentives set are of monetary value
Fun workplace. Too much pressure
Too much pressure.
Management is cool.
Needs hard worker and must be willing to sit all day on the phone and work over time if team isn't meeting sales target.
ProsToo much pressure
Productive and high worplace environment
The comapany is youthful, fun co-workers which i enjoyed but limited time for socialising. High pressured target driven environment which is the hardest part of the job but very rewarding. I learned to communicate well, time management skills and to type faster.The managemnet team was supportive and encouraging.
ProsFree fruits and hot bevarages, enjoy Jewish/Public holidays, weekends off as well
ConsLong hours, no flexiability for temporary employees, meeting weekly target
Good people, unfair management,good supervisors and great mentors Good salary. The personnel managers are not fit to be in management and are not fit to work with people.
Commision basis and not stimulating
Nature of the job is extremely repetitive and does not provide a challenge at all. HR is very unorganized and because of the commission basis, the salary is too inconsistent.
Working environment is good, just the nature of the job and management style is not up to standard.
Friendly Workplace and Target Focused Workplace
I had to learn to be faster and more focused at work hence we had targets, also to work as part of a team.
The work enironment was fun all the time and team building was taken very seriously and that helped with making us as employees gain more skills and see our strongest skills
Most of all i enjoyed how we were all free to talk to management about our work ang how they would help us with anything that can make our work easier
ProsThe benefits and the team building events and the Jewish Holidays
