The typical work day started at 07:00 and ended at 16:30. These working hours were from Monday to Thursday. On a Friday we started to work at 07:00 and finished the day at 13:00.
The day would start off with the actual planning and make sure that the most urgent work gets done first.

I learned that team work reaped great rewards and that in a multi-cultural environment people can work together if they put their minds to it.

The hardest part of the job was working with fellow associates from different departments that did not worked towards the company's main objectives and goals.

The most enjoyable part of the job was, when there were unforeseen issues that had to get resolved and if additional work were received and plans had to be made to get materials in, in order to supply clients there products JIT.

The social engagement after hours, were we would go and play action cricket and go-carting was also one of the things that helped us to build a bigger and better team.
Pros
Medical aid, pension, 13th cheque
Cons
Monthly stock takes over weekends

No real chance for personal development as risk is quite high and number of contractor employees very high. Thus, full time supervision on site is required.
Room for compulsory training was made (first aid, basic fire fighting and legal liability)

Management was good. during my stay site managers was swopped 3 times and each had different work ways but, in the end worked out good
Pros
Housing and transport free
Cons
Long hours

Learned how to do Management Accounts, forecast Budgets

Management was tight. I worked with a strict boss, but loved it.

Co workers were a nice crowd.

Hardest part of the job was training myself in most aspects.

The enjoyable part is the job satisfaction I got out of the job.
Pros
Leaving early on Fridays

Alstom was a product but challenging work environment.
This is excellent for personal growth.

The challenge was to build a power station that is already delayed due to unforeseen constraints with zero incidents within an allotted diminished time frame.
Pros
diverse international work force
Cons
time contraints due to unforseen delays
