Everyone was very welcoming, they all had very nice attitudes they were very helpful and would help you if you are ever stuck or in need of assistance. The managers and supervisors were super helpful and understanding when it came to problems or school things that we needed time off for. Overall my experience was amazing.

But however their targets can be Very unrealistic.

There is alot of conflict of interest where newbies closest to managers get advanced , rewarded and very hard workers dont

I work in a challenging work environment. We support our clients all around the South Island. Every day is different. We tackle all kinds of queries from a mobile not connecting to the network to a market being offline. We have various IT teams working closely to make sure the Foodstuffs network is well maintained.
Pros
lots to learn
Cons
stressful environment

This is the most challenging job I have ever had. No two days were the same. Everyday there were new issues that required solutions. I saw these problems as an opportunity, to be challenged and to come up with workable solutions.
The role also involved being out of the office visiting and training clients. I enjoyed being on the road and dealing with the store owners down to the office staff and checkout operator. The hardest part of the job was producing the first set of accounts or GST return (equivalent to VAT) to independent accountants' specification.

Not good.

Were not willing to fund training that was needed to do the job, even though I was willing to put some of my own money up. Would not allow the use of retired AIX equipment for training purposes. Management were not flexible about time in leiu, even though I did lots of work in the evening patching.


Got sick of being messed around and left the company
Pros
Cafe

This is a great company to work for, if you are willing to slack off, come in late and do nothing and still get paid.

I am not that kind of person, so I am actively looking for ANYthing else.

I was extremely fortunate to have fallen into a career with a South Island / New Zealand Company that had excellent family values and a vision to grow and support their membership base.

I enjoyed the challenges, the change and most of all the people.
