My years at De Beers hold some of my fondest memories. I enjoyed my work. I enjoyed my team. I enjoyed my relationships with colleagues. I wish the c.

I spent about 18 years of my life working for De Beers, and I don't have a single regret about it. I have built relationships that are lasting up to this day. I've worked with excellent people, and teams. Looking back, I realise that the people of De Beers are a true family. I think that the company lives up to the value, "show we care". I believe that the company allowed me to grow tremendously

Stressful

Too many unnecessary strategies in place which could result in a lost time incident or even death. Professional engineers and the like should be allowed to perform their duties without being monitored as if they were apprentices.

Interesting work

Enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the mining industry but specifically what is done in the marine mining process. It was great to be able to work closely with these individuals, they are very passionate about what they do.

Prosper

It was a please nt place to work there was teamwork and momentum.. We as colleagues grow as family we stand as one with management.. De beers was a friendly zone and we all loved each other as brother and susters.. I wouldn't mind to work for the company again. They put our safety first. We practice it at work and take it home that was a standard. But Ja all good things come to a end. I really enjoy my work place cause they give us opportunities to do courses and lean much more in the mining industry.

Pros

Own lunch

Cons

12 hours

De Beers is one company you can join and work for it. I am even thinking of getting a job again.

Moving from mussina to gauteng region was really difficult for me but to change of environment. It was challenging at first but so far I thank those who adviced me to come. De Beers is a nice company and even thinking of going back.
