I was a learner
I was a learner and the exposure i got was very baluable. I gained finance experience especially in the creditors management environment. The culture was vibrant and enabling given the fact that Sandvik is an international company. Room for growth was a reality. Remuneration was still below par given that i was absorbed as a learner.
Pros
Learning from senior employees
Cons
Remuneration

Productive
The job that I do is more balanced and also challenging

Mining industry is a very critical and challenging industry and dealing with customers who always need service urgently ,makes me to be flexible and also extra hard working .

I enjoy working with customer and having meetings with them to build relationships . The Salary I receive is fair for the years I have worked here. We also receive performance bonuses every April . There is also job security ,though growing is a challenge . The job culture of Sandvik teaches us to work as a team and also be pro-active always

Moderate
Monotonous and repetitious work
Lack of up-skilling, however, the opportunity to grow one needs to make it possible by speaking out and persisting.


I took with the communication tool and skill

the understanding of how mining operates and that one needs to be disciplined to pursue growth and up-grading one.
Pros
50% medical aid contribution
Cons
flow of work does not slow down however, it get consistent

Productive Workplace`
Build underground drilling and mining equipment. Learned about the operation and maintenance of this equipment. Management is friendly and approachable. Workplace morale was low at times, and inter departmental relationships were weak. Most difficult part of my job was documenting the development of the projects I oversaw. I enjoyed the experience and recommend Sandvik as a worthwhile place of employment.
Pros
Popcorn
Cons
Weak interdepartmental relationships

productive inspiring company while you work
That was company dealing with mining stock items, also demanding concentration be able to planning,organise,lead and control your work. No room for picking error especially when picking for a break down since there's too much cost involve.rather delay picking while seeking for clarity than wrong picking.long hours when it's pick time and overtime indeed will be requested,good management from the senior management which made it easier for resources on the floor together with supervision
Pros
stock take result should be 99.9 %
