I learned a lot and was exposed to a lot. Was a good time in my life but I outgrew the culture, focus on AA and BBBEE overtook capabilities and competencies.

Its a fun experience
Everyday differs, its all about getting everything done as quick as possible. I have learned that am more of a people person and that I really enjoy working with admin, capturing any data. Management leaves me to go on with everything im suppose to do, co-workers get a long with me as I do take interest in them but friendliness has a limit. It hard working with no training as stock income, pricing and labelling but im a fast learner and got comfortable within a week, just sad that it was only temporary.
ProsDoing work in my way but understandle for everyone else

Great but enjoyable
My typical day at work can be fun but challenging.
In this job I've learned that you have be respectful to customers and serve them according to their wishes.
Sometimes the job can be challenging, the management is alwas there to address our queries on time.
The hardest part of the job is when we have to multi-task because the other workers didn't pitch up for duty.
The most enjoyable part is when we work fruitfull with one another and that there are no shortages for the rest of the shift.

Adventurous and eye opening
The day would begin with planning the travel to various BP petrol stations. The plan was to cover a minimum of 10 outlets per day and thus I had to maximise on travel time due to distances between these outlets. Once I have reached the outlet I would then undertake the audit by physical observation or inspection of the material and signage on the site against the set standards. I would then engage the management of the outlet on my findings and pose any other questions I may have that would be of assistance to my investigation.
At the end of the day, I would spend evenings drafting a report on the findings on the audit done on each of the outlets I would have visited on the day and forward through the report and recommendations to address gaps to the head office and the management team at the specific outlets.
ProsTravelling the landscapes of South Africa, trekking across cities and rural areas.
ConsLooking for accomodation (mainly B&Bs) every day, as sometimes you would cover a stretch of 800kms in a day.
