Demanding and Challenging

Working according to instructions from supervisor and SOP's. Operating Opencast EME's and managing people. The management was very poor, lacked vison and transformation.

Pros

Fatigue breaks

Cons

Lots of overtime

The company was on a infancy stage with SAP system, with my knowledge of SAP, I was able to take the company to the next level, I enjoyed working at SABC with different people and different dynamics, I was able to assist the company when it was cash scraped by implementing some changes which led the company to the stable phase, I can go back to this company should the opportunity arise

This is where I started to grow and trained on different kinds of basic operations

Safety and production quality processes were highly stressed and encouraged to follow for the best results and high volume production. Team building and working as a team was also the main cause of success

BHP Billiton

A typical day started at 07:30 and ended at 16:00. During the week we would have a team meeting on Monday to catch up and discuss work for the week. During these meetings we would have coaching opportunities and present a specific topic relation to your work. I've learned quite a lot about Commodity Management and Contract Management. I also had the opportunity to travel a lot. We were a close knit family that cared about every team member's well being.
