Firstly the shift handovers are immaculate for the start of each shift. Which make it very easy to start-up, especially the housekeeping. Beginning of each shift, a meeting is conducted and the team will know is expected from them to complete each shift.
Pros
Free lunches, incentives and awards.
Cons
Overtime, Assist when employees are absent and working on weekends.

My typical day at work would consist of loading and inspecting of tyres.
I learned that attention to detail is very important and the hard work one puts in is what you get out.

The managers I had were really understanding and they made me feel comfortable they were easy to communicate with, but at the same time they still gave me that extra push.

The hardest part of my job would be the lifting of tyres and especially when its hot in the factory, but I still enjoyed it very much.

I enjoyed meeting new people and just the fact that I was always busy made my job enjoyable.
Pros
free takkies, free Christmas hampers and getting paid every Friday
Cons
Long hours

I have had a lot of working experience and had a lot of learning experience. It is a nice place to work for. I loved working there, but after I had an IOD doing my Job to the best of my ability got difficult. Working shifts is not my strong point after the birth of my son. Finding a night care nanny is hard as they also have family's.
Pros
the benifits and medical aid
Cons
shifts

Nice place, good ppl, very well structured, except for management ideology.
There is no day the same, ever, there are always issues with supply or customers - it has been said that a good Quality person will work themselves out of a job, which is what I achieved, so therefore moved from Quality to Processing - with no fiscal benefit.
Pros
Technologically advancing rapidly
Cons
Over 60 hr weeks, no weekends, no overtime, and very difficult to get leave ilo.
