It's a free market guys. The market will sort itself out, you all don't have to apply.

Sounds like a stepping-stone role for someone to get into before they jump to a big corporate. The hours seem pretty hectic - assume there's going to be overtime over and above the basic salary.

the hours are not the problem as most IT people that "work" on systems that require downtime have to work in the evening /weekends.The main point being the skills required vs the salary.

Maybe, the current average salary is around R4500 doesn't matter about qualifications or experience. This is my genrral experience with private companies.

Go check in small towns. Managers earning less than R10 000 and the rest get R4500 and you must just be happy. Almost like it's the real squid games.

To be honest, I haven't see this and I am actively looking for a job for my girlfriend. In fact, I actually found that the smaller towns pay much better due to the fact that no one wants to move to those places.

Regardless, I haven't seen any job pay as little as R4500 unless its part time or unskilled.

It is usually the jobs that don't indicate a salary. Also could be this town specifically, but I've done it all, vehicle sales, hardware sales, journalism. Unfortunately, some small towns with new things like a university create a job scarcity and even before then. Jobs have always been hard to find here. I am willing to do absolutely any type of work in Cape Town. I would even apply for a streetsweeper in CT.
