Fast paced high pressure environment
Oil Operator (Former Employee) – Johannesburg North, GP – October 22, 2014
A typical day at work involved planning on how product will be moved from point A to point B in the most cost effective way to ensure that economic value is maximized for the company on that particular trade.
This would include, finding appropriate transporters, clearing agents and inspectors in various countries, ensuring that subcontractors are paid, invoicing customers for services rendered and product provided.
The most challenging part of the job was unreliable communication in certain countries in Africa (Bad telephone network), bad roads and delays at the borders.
I learned how to work within a budget and enhanced my skill of dealing with pressure.
The most enjoyable part of the job was been able to see the improvements in the supply chain from the time I started and been able to quantify the impact of my work to the bottom line of the company.
I got job satisfaction by knowing the commercial value I added to my company.
Got to travel, Free drinks, 100% medical aid paid, company cell phone and laptop with access to internet
High turnaround of work force
