Pressure filled day complicated by unwilling subordinates and unrelenting management pressure to achieve good results. The most difficult task is achieving results on schedule whilst maintaining prescribed safety standards. Releasing a machine on time despite above challenges!
A good company to work for if you want personal and career growth
Site mechanic (Former Employee) – isando, klerksdorp, kuruman – 18 January 2016
depending on the section of the comp you work you have safety talks and job briefings. barlows equipment had a lot to offer and you attend two annual courses. Management always stand for there workers Team building is the name of the game. the hardest part is to finish work within deadlines when parts isnt available. the best part of the job is getting job satisfaction and customer satisfaction.
I enjoyed every moment I have spent with Barloworld. I resigned because I wanted to pursue my career at Metallurgy and they do not have it at their company. The work place was good and it's conditions,the colleagues were excellent and the challenge was that sometimes we had to lift heavy objects manually and I have learned a lot during my time there.
1 ) A typical day at work for me it is an everday job that you do without any pressure.
2 ) What ive learned from my work is not to mix business with pleasure and not to feel more comfprtable but to focus on whats important.
3) Management is there to support us and make sure we understand our roles in the compmany and as for my co-workers they are people who need to give a hand where help is needed and also make feel at home.
4) The hardest part of the job for me is having to deal with people who want to make my owm work hard for me or customers who doesnt want to comply to our work procedures.
5) What i enjoy about my work is haaving to work with people who are passionate and who make my work easy for me by assisting if help is needed.
Senior Feild Service Supervisor (Current Employee) – Johannesburg, GP – 30 June 2015
Gather information before an assumption is made Take responsibly and accountability for comments and decisions made I enjoy meeting company KPIs (productivity, wip, profit) We communicate daily during briefing and debriefing The hardest job is to close an internal job (our own enemies) Speaking and communicate with customers artisan while building an imaginary picture of there situation. Different scenario every day
productivity was good. No delay with parts arrival. jobs were either completed on the deadline or before the deadline. Co workers always made the environment a better place to work in. Management was average...very little action done about complaints
