Great work place
Very good environment. I learnt to work with a team, team work is the best thing to do.

I learnt about time management, work ethic, safety of my self as well as my coworkers.


The most challenging part was when we installed the big structures such as screens

Strict Workplace but decent
Best place to work for. Typical day at work was fast paced and you needed to be focused on you work. I have learned that what you give you will get back, hard work pays off at the end of the day.
Pros
Bonus Payout once a Year
Cons
If you make a mess you stand alone

Inconvenience
Minopex is a company that asked me to help them put together a safety management system. I left for Limpopo in March 2017 only to be told after 3 months that they were not renewing the contract

Good operations, long hours
A typical day is as follows:

• Perform rigging where heavy and technical lifting is required.

• Execute inspection and maintenance of lifting equipment on a

daily, weekly, and monthly basis according to the ISO standard.

• Make sure that all lifting machinery and tackle is load tested and

certified according to ISO standards.


Very good company to work for the hardest part is the long hours and little free time including weekends.


Culture is very friendly and helpful only engineer had a challenging personality to deal with but we got the job done.


Well remunerated.
Pros
Good remuneration
Cons
Long hours

Very fun and productive place to be
Minopex gave me the opportunity to experience mining as i worked in a concentrator plant processing platinum. i learned the process fro crushing up until filtering. the hardest part of my job was to be productive when working 12hour shift. My co- workers were very good to me as they taught me everything about the plant,especially the supervisors.
Pros
Free coffee, tea, milk and sugar for free for each shift every month
Cons
overtime on selected days like maintanace days

Fun workplace
i personally enjoyed the experience because of just that it was indeed an experience. It was a plant that was commissioned and that means we were bound to find problems around the plant and you always had to be on your feet to anticipate the breakdowns and frequent stoppages. so i enjoyed been constantly on my feet and getting dirty . Although the gap between management and the students for communication purposes for sharing ideas was null. i hope future students don not suffer the same fate.
Pros
Periodic Braai's, a very nice welcome to the students .
Cons
contracted so less opportunity to be granted a job.
