Overall Reviews at Smollan

Senior Project Coordinator | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 07 Aug 2019
Dream Job
Job with growth if you do get mananged by the correct manager. Work takes over your personal life. Need to be thick skinned. Can be a toxic enviroment as some have no knowledge of whats expexted from them and some manangement is a seat filler.

Field Marketer | Durban, KwaZulu-Natal | 30 Dec 2013
Productive & Fun Place to work
A typical day would be going through my list of TO DO's, the ticking them off as I complete it. Doing adhoc reports which come through at least 3X a week. My Operations Manager manages both KZN and Free State - so I would consolidate the both and forward to the respective persons at head office. I have increased my knowledge of excel as I only work with spread sheets and formulas 3/4 of the time. Management- As I mentioned above my Operations Manager manages both KZN and Free State. Under her there are 6 more managers. They have a great work ethic. Everyone works well as a team. I am the only person here that does the administration-I work well with all the managers. If I am unsure of anything at anytime- thy are always willing to assist. The hardest part of my job was moving heavy boxes of the Point of Sale.... saying goodbye in January 2014 I enjoy the team spirit here!
ProsFree lunches
ConsHigh aircon - it gets freezing here
Retail Sales Associate | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 07 Jan 2020

I am a marketing graduate with more than 6 years of work experience in sales and customer service. I am happier when I put a smile on a client. I am very passionate with working with people.
Business Development Manager | Johannesburg North, Gauteng | 21 May 2019
Great company to work for
This is the best company to work for in my experience. Really people focused. Benefits are designed to help staff bonuses, housing loans (with time) funeral benefits, Education benefit for kids should employees die, small yet NB to create a solid workplace.
ConsNeed to advance women more senior positions
Customer Service Representative | Houghton Estate, Gauteng | 13 Nov 2019
Control tower
When going for an interview they tell you about nice position and good salary but when you get a job you get different offer and salary unless you know someone working there. Control tower is the worst you get R4500 and it's a fixed term contract that doesn't have end date so anytime you can be jobless. There's no growth unless you have connections. No incentives just a basic salary taxeand Sunday is a normal working day nothing extr
