Yuppie Diaries – Megaworld Employee Review

Hi! Since there are a lot of you lovies asking about Megaworld – I decided to create a new blog about the company. Here we go!

Just a little update after the interview:

July 2016

After 3 weeks of dreadful waiting for Megaworld to call me, they finally did! One of the assistant of the Senior Assistant Vice President (SAVP) of the Contracts and Procurement Department – Purchasing called me up and scheduled me for the Final Interview. I was interviewed by my manager-to-be since the SAVP was at a meeting that day. It was a quick introduction on what my job would be and disclosure of the final offer of salary and benefits.

After 3 days, HR called to inform me that I got the job (Yay!) and scheduled me for job offer signing. After signing, I went straight to take the Medical Exams since I was still staying in Cavite and it took a lot of expenses just to get to Makati. It also didn’t take too long to finish since they only need you to take the exams and they will be the one to pass your results to the HR partner. If you have no problems with it, then expect HR to call you after a week for your 1st day of reporting to work. In my case, I got delayed for about 2 more weeks because they found minor problems with my urinalysis and I got my monthly visit (you know) so I couldn’t take it again that soon. Once the Doctor declares you’re fit to work, then you’re good to go!

August 1, 2016

First day of work! Yay! Basically, you will have a New Employee’s Orientation this day – with free breakfast, snacks, and lunch courtesy of Mcdonalds. No workload yet – relax lang muna he,he. 

 

 

MEGAWORLD EMPLOYMENT REVIEW (A Fresh Grad’s First Job Perspective)

  • GROWTH

The company provides opportunities where you can really grow and discover your full potential. Speaking from a Fresh Grad Perspective with 0 Experience other than OJT, you will be faced with real-time challenges which you wouldn’t really know what to do at first but you will be surprised you got through it – and be called an expert on it. This is where your growth will begin. Everyday you have a diversity of tasks to get your job done – a lot of approval and comments from different people (almost all the time from the big bosses)  who will give you perspective from Architectural to Engineering to Purchasing to Budgeting. No minute is boring and idle – this I promise you.

  • PEOPLE

The people in Contracts and Procurement Department (CPD) – where I currently am part of – are people who brings the relaxation in stress, the sunshine on the rainy days, and the joy on the sorrowful days. (For all my officemates reading my blog, lam nyo na ah. Turon lang okay na hahaha) Really, they are the most friendly, bubbly, and crazy set of workmates and I’m glad they’re part of my first job experience. Mr. Andrew L. Tan himself and the big bosses are very much approachable especially when it comes to helping you finish the task (both individual and as a group). We even got the chance to party with the President of the company last December with a special celebrity guest singer. (who is my faveeeeeeee of all singers ♥)

  • COMPANY ITSELF

Have you seen Megaworld townships? Have you seen the beauty of the extravagant and artistic Italian design of Venice Canal Mall, Mckinley, Taguig? Have you felt the cold breeze at Twinlakes, Tagaytay? Have you went shopping in Uptown Mall, BGC? Even before I was part of this company, I have numerous moments of losing my breath just by looking at their masterpiece townships. Eastwood City is what made me say ” Someday, I’m gonna be part of Megaworld.” and then Venice Piazza, and then Twinlakes, and then Uptown Mall – which is now our second home. When you become a part of MW family, you will feel the feels of how it started to how it has become to this day. Amazingly breathtaking, always.

  • BENEFITS

Megaworld is generous to its employees. There are so many – by so many, I mean SOOOO MANY – perks available to Megaworld employees and its subsidiaries; from Hotels to World-Class Food Chains to Cinemas to Properties.

  • PROMOTION

This I am not familiar with since I am just starting my career in the company. In our department, we are performance-based measured through KPI. This is the basis of moving up the career ladder.

That’s it! Overall, my (almost) 1 year stay in MW has been great and it has helped me grow holistically since Day 1 up to now. I know they will provide me platforms to improve myself also as long as I am there.

PS,

Thanks for all the readers of my previous blog about MW. I hope this blog answers some of your further questions and give you an idea on deciding whether to go for it or not. One thing’s for sure, you won’t regret if you do. Best of luck to all of you and I hope to see you around! ♥

  1. Hi! I enjoyed reading your application experience in Megaworld. Same here, I also applied there for the Accounts Management Specialist post. Same scenario, I am still waiting for their call for the schedule of my final interview. It is already almost a month but they never contact me yet and every time I follow up, they just advice me to wait. Is this their normal process on applications? I hope to hear from you! 🙂

  2. Hi there! Thanks for your reply. I already have my final interview but I am not sure if I will be considered for the Accounts Management Specialist post because I don’t have an experience in sales or quota (which is the requirement). Can I apply for other position related in my experience like QA or in documentation? How did you apply for other positions? Thank you ☺

    • As stated from my previous blog, I was also endorsed to Accounts Management Specialist but I insisted I wanted to originally apply for Purchaser. HR was kind to let me try first the interview for Accounts Management Specialist then endorsed me for second and final interview Purchaser Position. It worked for me, maybe it will work for you too! Good luck! 🙂
