A challenging place to be

During my entire stay in the company, everything was good. I just have a problem with their communications. Since i am a field worker, the instructions and announcements weren't clear. They keep changing the forms that keeps us from doing our work on time since we have to do it again. And when they need something, you need to give it.right away. But other that that, everything else is fine.

Very collaborative

Being part of DSWD-Kalahi was a big help for my career because I have learned a lot from them. I learned how to prepare the engineering documents such as program of works, detailed estimates and plans.

Challenging and Fulfilling

My work in DSWD was very challenging due to heavy work load and locations of different types of project implemented at the same time in addition to different area location especially projects located in islet barangays where you can only travel by boat when high tide, but even on the challenge it is very fulfilling when project are implemented well and successfully especially when implemented through Bayanihan System where the community helps in implementing projects.

Pros

With travel allowance

Cons

No benefits, no overtime pay

Stressful job.

It requires a lot of efforts, time, and proper management. You are required to deal with people whom you do not know. Learn things which are not taught within school.

Pros

Free allowances

Working with DSWD is a great opportunity because my nature of work is community organizing, working with volunteers and other marginalized sector

Equal treatment and continues learning through roll out and capability training. There is inconsistency in disseminating information from head to subordinates.

Pros

Learning and great opportunity

Cons

working 7 days a week and even on holidays
