Trustworthy and friendly

My previous employer treat me pair, she teach me different kind of work load and ideas about work and life, she know how to handle the salesman and trucker very well.I like how they treat their employee they are very generous and friendly. The hardest part that i feel on my job is that when we have a operation every season of the year we work very hard from time to time even in rest day. but despite on that i know that this is the part of our job.

Sometimes require long hours of work.

Very competitive and challenging work place; highly rewarding and fulfilling

Working at Gardenia has been both challenging and rewarding. A work day is filled with different situations where one's skills will be put to the test. Normal process troubles require one to be resourceful to be able to solve different problems. Decision making skill is very much utilized. The wok is demanding physically and mentally as reports are regularly required. The job is highly rewarding. The feeling of accomplishment after the day's work is an incomparable feeling. The happiness that result from being able to help and motivate one's subordinates is unparalleled.

Pros

challenging work place, rewarding

Cons

long hours of work is required from time to time
