Productive work under Challenging environment

World Food Programme work is more challenging, complex and joyful in emergency environment. When the need for human survival is imperative, sourcing and arrangement and delivering of intensive requirement to save a human life is typical days for me. I have learned to manage the stress and work under highly pressure when need curve is too high. I have worked in multicultural and diverse environment and learned the best management practices of understanding and managing human behavior. The most enjoyable part of work is whenever I deliver my best to achieve the organization objectives. This is very complex and hard to supervise the staff in emergency situation, but with utmost apply of motivational tools I have achieved for particular worker desired outcomes. .

Pros

Learning & Development

Cons

Job insecurity, Career

Fun place to work

Always in a constant phase of emergency however the employees take it as normal work life. Having iftari at office females leaving office late due to heavy work load and some make staff staying overnight in office and working all n8ght is not something that should surprise someone who works for WFP Peshawar office in order to make a difference in lives of those much needed.

Nice workplace

Lots of work in receiving and in dispatch, to count and inventory of food on daily basis. Dispatching food on daily basis for IDP's. Good management in WFP they were providing any thing we need. We worked as team and had good coworkers. hardest part of the job is when we had problem in recieving of food and IDP's were waiting then we had to wait for the trucks and to control 2000 IDP's. But i was handling easily all the IDP's nicely and in friendly way.

Pros

Had good time with Co-workers

Cons

Worked 18 Hours a day.

Fileld Monitor

IN world food program there are either emergencies (natural or man made calamities) or preparations for emergencies so its a very very busy job. It involves a great deal of travel to places located in remote areas and interaction with a variety of people. The most enjoyable part of the job is when someone in need is helped and he thanks you not with he tongue but with light in his/her eyes, when a an aged man who is not given his chance due to his weakness and you provide him the opportunity and help, when a women or kid cannot find his place in man dominated society and you help him get their due share these are the moments that are priceless. The hardest part of the job is when sometimes you are supervised by unqualified and inhumane supervisor who neither likes working nor want you to work with ease and are always trying to be bossy. I had one such supervisor. The coworkers are the ones who make your work easy and enjoyable who supports you and guides you when you need guidance who enjoy your nonsense and are worried about your safety, i had many such friend from multicultural environments.
