Very productive and safety conscious company

Issue DWS, ensure that all work planned are scheduled, printed and handed out to the various disciplines. Assign spares to planned work, create service entries for invoices issued by external service providers. Assign works request by the operation personel to the relevant discipline. Management is always willing to assist when faced with challenging opportunities. Co workers can be head strong at times, but will alwys be of assistance. To ensure that supervisors adhere to maintenance schedule, and ensure that planned work is done timeously.

Pros

The safety of the human gem is more valuable than the end product itself

Cons

Life of mine is 2018

Assistant Editor and organiser.

I've enjoyed my stay with De Beers and the exposure that I got through my employment with them cannot be valued at all. The opportunities that I had in dealing with various school projects, providing relevant information to the public regarding the mining industry in general as well as specialised diamond mining was a huge but satisfying learning curve.

Pros

Lots of exposures.

Cons

Ungrateful members of management - even though only a few of them.

Productive, and enjoyable work place

A well planned day ahead provides one with a peace of mind and also allows one to cater for jobs that might crop up during the day that were not expected. I have learned that listening, taking orders and planning and scheduling of jobs is vital, it lets one go back and review ones job for the day.

Pros

Incentives

Cons

Standby

An active and busy environment

A typical day at work for me is normally a long day in terms of productivity and energy required for productivity, both physical and mentally. I learned a lot of things like being able to work as a team member, being able to ensure that a duty is being carried out successfully and I also learned about safety at the workplace. The management at De Beers is up to standard, they perform their leadership duties very well. The most challenging part of the job for me was finding my way around the plant in terms of spotting the different damaged camera destinations. The most enjoyable part was to apply my electronics theoretical knowledge and get the job done successfully.
