Student Technician (Former Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 27 June 2016
I had a great experience at this company. I mostly done designing, detailing and quantities. I enjoyed the problem solving part of the work, this was also the hardest part of the job because i was faced with problems that i have not covered at varsity yet. I was always eager to learn and the engineers were always ready to teach.
I work with kind, humble and knowledgeable people. That makes my work easy as i'm able to approach them with any challenge I face.

Golder is a good company to work for. I have learnt a lot during my stay and i'm still progressing. The only reason i'm looking elsewhere is that i'm in a contract training program. I would also like to enrich my knowledge in other chemical engineering related fields.The work environment at Golder is also favorable, ie, the people are highly professional.
Travel Coordinator (Former Employee) – Midrand, GP – 13 September 2013
Had liked the job but had very difficult to please boss, Started company's own guest house which sometimes caused overbookings when other departments/ supervisors called boss to arrange, Liked co-workers quite well and did many team-building events, Hardest part was to keep track of all travellers at all time as company did extensive work in Africa, Team-building days were best.
