student assistant (Former Employee), Cape Town, WCSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: one would swap times with colligues if they are not feeling well and there is team work
Cons: extremely long hours yet very little salary
University of the Western cape library and linguistics department are very interesting field of work. they are very accommodating and good to work with the management there. it is great pleasure having to be surrounded by books everyday. i am now a knowledgeable individual because during my spare time i would read the books and also as part of my job read those books so that i can help students when they have inquiries.

educator support Assistant manager (Former Employee), Bellville cape townMarch 18, 2013
Pros: flexible times of attempting the work to be done

hectic but coping because of prior planning, Learnt a lot about managing people, working together makes things easier (management wise). Most enjoyable part of my job is ranging trainings and communicating with educators from different schools(56) that im working with now. Hardest part was video recordings of lessons but as time goes i learnt how to cope and make it easy for me and educators to be recorded.
