    Good place to work, had a lot of opportunities for most employees, was a global company so was able to learn about different ways of work

    If you were not located in the home office, you may not be seen as an important element in the whole

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    To 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Barloworld

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Low 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay better

    I have been working at Barloworld

    Pros

    listed company, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut back on the soft support stuff. The people making the money are the ones in the workshops not in the offices
