Too start and end Your Career

As an intern/person looking for experience or finishing off your working career Eskom is really good, their training, attention development of staff knowledge and benefits are great.If you do not fit in the boxes they set out you will die slowly, to succeed is not easy if you do not fit the profile. Management can be rather poor, but if you want safety and comfort that is great.

Pros

benefits package, safe environment, world class training

Cons

long hours, work/home in balance, media and personal critique every time you step outside your door

Productive

It was very exciting to start working at Mgs contractor for Hendrina Power Station. I have learnt a lot and my skills just improved day by day. I have started as a Supervisor on Site. This was something new to me but I believe if you want to learn then you have the courage you will do your best to do so. I really love my job. My boss send me for courses at OHS Academy. It was great because I have a passion for study and I pass all my courses. I was working at MGS at Hebdrina Power Station since June 2012 until 2020. My reason for leaving was END OF CONTRACT IN JULY.2020I relocate back to my hometown Western Cape PROVINCE, Cape Town

Pros

Lunch

Cons

Growth

When i first joined Eskom i was not clued up about it as an organisation. Through internal training I managed to learn more about the culture and the systems we are using. I also learn to work in teams which was new to me. What I like about my job is that we experience new challenges everyday which makes my job more interesting and challenging.

Pros

No limitation to career development

Cons

no gym & sport activities

Productive, stressful but fulfilling

Escom/Evkom was far more better managed especially financially. High amounts paid for electricity were immeduately invested which is not happening any more and that is naturally a lost of income from interest received

Pros

Still one of the better Gov / Parastatel to work for

Cons

Serious lack of vision about consequences of wrong or bad desisions taken

The experience was good.. even though I wasn't happy with the salary

If I could get a chance to work for Eskom again I would grab it with both hands. But I would ask for an adjustment with salary . Eskom is a good working environment, safety and stressless.

Eskom is a good company

Eskom is a good company to work for but the sad part about being a survey technician is the limited growth. You can only be a supervisor that's it. There is no other position to grow further.

Pros

Not really

Cons

Limited skill
