Edcon Reviews


Great company

Edcon is a fantastic company to work for.growth and development opportunities are always available. With my time i have spent with the company i have seen challenges and opportunities but the learnership has been world class.education and upskillng is also very important to edcon as they look to groom own managers and also retain them. Company incentive are also great but with current restructure a lot of change took place and vacancies have been reduced leaving a lot wondering what will happen next. There is still room for improvement for the HR as they are not 100% with equipping employees with info and resources.

Pros: Huge company with lots of opportunities
Cons: Uncertainty with a lot of restructuring and retrenchment. HR not as broad therefore causing a delay.

Easy to be around

I am outgoing, accepting, and friendly enjoining everything and make things more fun for others by their enjoyment, I like action and make things happen. I find remembering facts easier than mastering theories also best in situation that need common sense and practical ability with people, I am self –driven and dislike working with lazy people. I love my job and make it my priority I also like reaching target, I can work well under pressure and make sure my colleagues, boss and clients are happy because their happiness matters most

Pros: i love my job and make it a priority
Cons: i can work well under plessure

The best place to work is a place where you can be your best

Edcon is a very nice place to work,and i The best place to work is a place where you can be your best.so if i were to change or leave Edcon ,One of my big challenges will be adjusting to the new workflow for creating reports to present to clients. Every company has a slightly different process, but of course, you want to avoid revealing to clients that anything feels unfamiliar. I'll aim to ask a lot of questions during my first report, and see if a colleague is available to review it before I share it with the client. That way, by the time my report is in front of the client's eyes, I'll feel fully confident in the process and work. and i have learnt a lot from EDCON,but what i enjoye doig the most is customer service because i meet a lot of people,different and you learn new things everyday

Pros: There'a gwowth indeed in EDCON ,but somewhre some how in life you need a change .
Cons: sometimes you work long hours especially when there's stocktake,or Big promo
