Columbia is ok. I have learned how to configurate, callibrate, fix, and replace machine parts and equipments. Not only in electrical but also in other trades such as Mechanical (HVAC), Plumbing, Electrical, Welding, etc.
Long hours 12hrs/day and 6times a week
Columbia's is one of the biggest candy company in navotas city.as a formy employee I have experience a lot like how to do a multi tasking and how to manage the time.in my work experience machine operator is the biggest challenge for me because you have to know how to operate the machine.
Physically and mentally challenging. Specially on the wholesale/pakyawan area. Which is you have to work well with a team (6-8 persons) to reach the given quota (1200 boxes) in 12 hours. Optimal, depending on how your team will execute the work and breaks that is given by your head operator. Unstable salary for pakyawan but still possible to earn 18k to 22k per month.
I'm currently working in this company staying for about 4 months. I must say, I've learned so many things such as dealing/ interacting with other people.Appreciate, value the work of an employee and how important the duties & responsibilities of each individual.Moreover, how important the coordination and the teamwork for the accomplishment of the task that assigned to you and to your department. Furthermore, competitive in way that you finish your assigned task in a best way and at the same time there's an enjoyment of work that lessen the stress cause there's a good relationship between co- colleagues and to your immediate superior. As a newbie in a corporate environment , sometimes I encountered difficulties in handling task because challenges are inevitable. But, I'm thankful to my colleagues and superior for lending their hands and extended their help to overcome the difficulties that I encountered. The management are great, approachable and they are eager to help and share their knowledge, expertise and life experience to us. Lastly, I had a great experience and gained memorable things that I will treasure in my life.
work life balance, flexible time schedule

Best job I've ever had! The company introduces me to all facets of HR and it molds to be a better employee and HR professional. The salary, working place, the management, the company-based benefits and the employees are great! Respect, cooperation and sense of belongingness are clearly shown in the company. The best!

Mostly paper works but there is a time of enjoyment when it comes to field work as you can meet different types of people. some events are celebrated by different activities.
Working everyday requires traveling to different locations on the same day thus reducing your actual hours to complete all necessary duties. Long work hours from Mondays to Saturdays (excluding night shift work) gives you little time to rest and to do your personal matters.
Very long hours, whole day even on Saturdays
I learned a lot during my one year stay with columbia international. I learned importations, banking, how to be a. effective secretary and at the same time harnessed my skills in mandarin. It was truly a memorable experience at Columbia International. In addition to that, my boss was very considerate. He was strict at first but as i get to know him, he was very kind hearted.
Hardworking and willing to learned more about the work. Can work in day shift or night shift. Can assign in any work areas. Being responsible to your work and friendly to your co-workers
Free meal every special occassion
