This job would fit in exactly in the type of job I would like to do in the long term.

A typical working day would start by checking that every aspect of the business is up to date and in order; checking and answering e-mails, seeing that cash, orders, receiving and delivering of goods are in order. One must also be on top of needs and requirements of staff and co-workers. In the industry I have learnt that the only way to prevent problems is to have all your work up to date and in case a problem comes along, to deal with it right away. Customers have to be happy and satisfied at all times in order for them to come back to the store time after time. I really enjoy working with people (both employees and customers) and believe that true job satisfaction comes from giving your best at all times. The most challenging part of work is probably dealing with conflicting personalities in the best way and also to minimize theft and wastage, but all of that is part of being a good manager.

Pros: This job would be great because one could build the store up together with a good team.
Cons: There are no cons as far as I can tell, because being able to workis a privilege.

My capabilities

Working for myself as Self Employed. I've got a small team working for me. I'm trying to be always on site unless I've got to see clients or buy material. We work if there's work and have fun afterwards, we respects the clients privacy and belongings. We leave the premises in a clean manner and try to be of the premises before the client return from work. If I quoted 5 days for a project to be finished and its finished in 3 days my workers is getting paid for 5 days. I call it inspirational bonus. They work harder and make sure the work is right the first time. We don't normally work on week ends unless we have to. Family time is important for me. So yes we don't play around and make sure the client don't have anything to complaint about. This is building a special relationship between the client and myself.

Pros: The workers that perform more get a special bonus and if I have to leave the site for some reason take charge of the site for the time I'm not present.
Cons: We normally start to work at 7 am and nock of at half past 4 pm.

Customer service is my passion

My husband and I manage and own the takeaway canteen at Imperial Toyota in Kempton Park. We have 2 staff reporting to us. A typical work day will include greeting customers and colleagues and providing excellent customer service to our potential customers. My 27 years working in the corporate world has taught me patience, resilience, empathy, leadership, administrative, customer service and quality assurance skills. I enjoy face to face interaction with clients. The most challenging experience I have had working in the food industry was when my delivery staff was absent and I had to arrange with my chef to prepare food and to deliver food items in and around this area. My customers were inconvenienced because of their food orders taking longer than usual. It was a great achievement for me when the same customer that was inconvenienced the previous day will still order food from us. Customer service with a friendly smile is what sells.

Pros: Being a boss of your own
Cons: Load shedding and water shedding concerns
