Target driven workplace
My honest review of the company is that it is fair on staff, job security is high and proper legal steps are taken in terms of discipline.
I would comment that the shift worker can feel to be not a part of the fabric of the company though their role is crucial. Extra-curricular activities do not include the shift-worker as much as the day worker and one might end up feeling they are just a number in this big company.

Not bad if you are white
It's very hard to be recognized in the company, growth and development is not excised. You'll have to be very luck to be seen or given a promotion with the qualifications and work experience.

A great environment to train and grow within the engineering vicinity.
I have learnt the maintenance aspect of engineering and how important it is in the manufacturing industry. I have gained emotional intelligence by working with different people across a spectrum of cultures and workmanship. Challenges I have faced is integrating from the University environment into the working environment. I enjoyed mostly the handling of projects as it teaches you a lot of things about engineering and project management.

SAPPI - The family company
My experience working at SAPPI was that this is a company that allows for growth within the company as well as the group.

By applying yourself you can advance far up the ladder of success. They offer learning opportunities within a person's job scope.
