Great company
Best company to work for. Unfortunately it is often used as a stepping stone to most who are not interested in making a positive impact. Being happy in this company means not expecting anything in return, just giving your best, following policy and procedure at all times. If you do this, you will most certainly reap the benefits.

I am extremely grateful to be working here, proud to be a Transnet employee.

Not too bad for a part time with that kind of salary. Of i was hired on a full time basis i wouldn't have mind studying further & growing in the company. Pity it was a contracted job that came to an end

It is a good company to work for they must just extend the contracts.
The contracts are very short and then when it is up you have to look for work all over again

Good
Transnet is a great company to work for, we work long hours and shifts but the salary is good. Safety is a priority. Work culture is strict. Chances for advancement not so much especially if you are in my field. You get enough time to rest.

Job security
A typical day at work starts with checking mails and doing paper work depending if there isn't a job waiting. Workload depends on where you are stationed. My workstation is understaffed and is causing health problems among workers due to lack of regulated sleep to repair the body. Management refuses to employ more staff. There is no promotional prospects if you do not brown nose managers, "5 minutes of sucking up is better than 10 years good work" the actual words of my manager.
Pros
good salary
Cons
dead end job if you don't suck up
