Metallurgist in training (Current Employee) – Musina, Limpopo – 15 April 2017
everyday job is to monitor the plant and do quality assurance. In cases where there is a plant delay or machine breakdown I then do ivestigations (root cause anaylisis) and come up with solurions ( small group discussions with collegues).
One of the most impotant thing that I have learned is safety and efficiency. do not compromise safety at the cost of ones life.
It is very important to listen to fellow colleagues and guide each other when one is blind. The culture is that everyone is a leader, therefor take accoutability for everything you do.
The hardest part of the job is when conviencing supporting departments on work I want to be done but they already having a negative mindset about it. The most enjoyable part of the Job is when all department work as a team towards a common goal , being it a project or achieving production targets at most efficient way.
Automation and Instrumentation Senior Technician (Former Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 4 April 2017
Offshore work is always, by definition, hard work. It requires long hours with little sleep, an ability to problem-solve with very little support, and the foresight to make sure that you always have what you need, when you need it, right at the workplace while still maintaining a strict budget in very little storage space.
I have been fortunate throughout my career to have worked only with wonderful people, hard-working and fun-loving.
