Lecturer | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 02 Aug 2018
teaches me to work successfully under pressure Lesson planning for measurement mathematics and physics subjects, preparation and research Contact/teaching time with pupils Checking & assessing pupil’s work, invigilating examinations, attending staff meetings, doing some of the Maths course administration work.
Industrial Engineer | Doornfontein Campus, Gauteng | 07 Aug 2015
Has a latent potential but bureaucracy is holding its productivity.
1. A typical day was unproductive. 2. Industrial Engineering-Lean tools. 3. Management was poor. 4. Were willing to learn more. 5. Doing one interesting task then you sit down the whole day. 6. Information was readily available at all times and was accessible. 7 If it can listen to its workers especially bottom (floor workers) it can perform wonders.
ProsNormal hours
ConsMost of the work was done using old methods
Social Media Specialist | Doornfontein, Gauteng | 12 Mar 2020
Supportive team structures
Amazing company to work for and staff development is highly supported. UJ is a fully imaginative, open-minded and courage company which prides itself in co-creating solutions for its community.
Student Assistant | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 04 Jul 2017
Very flexible workplace
I only worked as a student assistant for a month each year for 3 years so my experience in this regard i do not deem substantial to be used to draw any conclusions.
Research Chemist | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 29 Jun 2015
beneficial and interesting
I've learned a lot from my work place, including time management, how to make presentations on my own and also building positive relationships with work colleagues. The hardest part of my job is when non of the reactions are giving positive results and the time is limited. The most enjoyable part is when we celebrate publications made from our lab.
Prosbirthday celebrations for every colleague
Conslack of equipment for everyone
Student Representative | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 14 Jul 2015
productive and a fun diverse working environment
The company provided a safe and conjusive work environment that enables one to grow and thrive in the corporate world, and created a diverse environment where people are able to interact.
ProsGrowth opportunities
ConsLimited resources
Attorney At Law | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 25 Jan 2019
Student Orientated
Academic professionalism by people who have realized that South Africa has an Education problem but instead of turning a blind eye to the problem and incidentally contributing to it by only permitting academic acceptance to students who already have an undergraduate degree - UJ seeks to bridge that academic gap through the implementation of a successful tutor base for Law Students right up until completion of the LLB Degree.
ProsOpen Minded - Professional
ConsNot implemented in the best possible way
