Was OK

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Barloworld full-time for more than 8 years

ProsManagement was willing to listen to your advise on ways things could be changed to better the department and turn around time.

ConsTo much play time allowed for some employees. Some took smoke breaks every hour for 10-15 minutes. Play time on personal cell phone, talking, texting, and facebooking all thru the day.

If you want to make money don't works here

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Barloworld

ProsGreat on the Job experience and great employees. Worked with other organizations around the surrounding areas.

ConsLow pay and managers only look out for themselves. I would advise not working here if you want to make a great living over early on. You may feel trapped.

Barloworld....not bad at all.

Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Barloworld

Proslisted company, good benefits, fair pay

ConsI get the feeling you have to leave the co if you want a 30% increase in salary

Advice to Senior Managementcut back on the soft support stuff. The people making the money are the ones in the workshops not in the offices
