Laboratory Demonstrator | Bellville, Western Cape | 17 Jul 2021
Growth but not productive
I work as a tutor and it's part of my work-study programme since I'm also a student there. The university rates are fine but the department is not paying enough. The working environment is relaxed and flexible but the money is not enough.
ProsRelaxed environment
ConsLow paying rates

Tutor | Cape Town, Western Cape | 14 Jun 2016
It was a good place because I have learned a lot from working there
I had a lot of fun because, Tutoring was kind of a part time job for me to assist me while I finish my studies and it helped me keep up to date with the curriculum. Therefore, I would say that I actually benefited may be more that certain student that I was tutoring.
ProsWorked with undertandable people and
Consno benefit, may be it was because we were not consider as normal employees.

This is an environment were people focus on getting work done. Being a previously disadvantaged university means that one really feels like one is making a difference in people's lives.
ProsExceptional facilities
Instructional Designer | Cape Town, Western Cape | 18 Jul 2013
Productive and goal orientated
A typical day at work is when I have to trained staff and students; content developer and quality assurance (proof reading material); staff meeting; office management; testing sites and new equipment or software and planning training sessions. I learn manage student assistants and office assets. I enjoy to work independently as well as in a team to share ideas. The hardest part of my job is when I have too much overlapping due tasks in a small space of time but I enjoy its challenge as it bring my multi-task skills into action. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I manage to meet due date in time; deliver a quality and professional training; developed a meaningful learning material and being able to transform technophobic users to a champion users of technology and multi-media tools.
ProsTraveling allowance when one attends work related conferences and staff study allowance
ConsNo Lunch-time: Sometimes due to work demand

Work in Progress
A good place to work and to grow. Staff are very concerned and caring. I learn all the time and there are always challenges that one needs to over come. The most enjoyable part is the fact that nobody really gets angry or abrupt as more than likely they are your research supervisors.
