It is a very good place to familiarize a student from school with the quarry mining industry. Also to gain experience on blasting, hauling, crushing and screening.

Very proactive, gaining more knowledge
I've gained more knowledge and always look forward to get to work. Always attending trainings to have more skills and know how the system works. Our managers are always willing to help at all times. The hardest part of the job is that we always have to meet the deadline so that we can have service delivery as the municipality.

High pace job, high level liaisons, many functions and special events.
No one day is the same at work. High volume work runs through my office. My external clients are commercial, industrial and VIP clients; Embassies, Ambassadors and Diplomats. Strategic and crisis management are a daily given. I have the freedom to make decisions within the policy boundaries. I work 24/7. My office is based in a friendly work environment and my wide spread team is very cooperative. My second group of clients is the internal crowd. I link with all the Departments in the Council, the office of the Mayor, the Members of the Mayoral Committee, Ward Counselors, the office of the City Manager, Department of International Relations and the media therefore I have to administer excellent relationships with everyone to keep the work flowing. One has to stay focused under tremendous stress and in perilous times. My clients are very demanding which is absolutely understandable. The aim of any business is to make money and when the city services fail they encounter a loss in revenue. Absent knowledge compels me to do ongoing research. Learning how to get something done via another Department has enriched my knowledge and I like that. I enjoy the extremely difficult situations which I have to resolve every day. The satisfaction of another satisfied client is most rewarding. I also do special projects like the Embassy National Days and Sport Events which I thoroughly enjoy.

No recognition or opportunities for career growth
I honestly feel oppressed, there are no advancement opportunities and no matter how much effort you put in or how qualified you get no body cares. Most often than not, some people get more over-utilized while not getting rewarded for their hard work
Pros
Competitive fringe benefits
Cons
No recognition for hard work and high performance

Productive workplace
Typical day would be to start with the urgent matters first . What I have learned is to prioritise and be able to work under pressure. Team work was very important and management was always there to give guidance. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with difficult motorists and dangerous situations. The most enjoyable was to deal with a variety of people and learning on the job something new every day.

Fun and Productive
A day at Tshwane was worth every moment. I've learned how to engage with people, the societies in Tshwane.
Management was great they know how to treat their staff and also people of the community. The workplace culture they stand by it and that is to encourage people to pay and keep track of their municipal accounts. The hardest job was working with elderly people because they say they pay but don't see what is it they pay for for ,I hard to make them understand how is that so ,what is it they must do.

Enjoyable part was going to all 9 regions of Tshwane ans interacting with people, entertaining them.
Pros
Free lunch and Transport

The best part was the knowledge and the skills I acquired ,The opportunity to work there and be trained by their good mentors
