I have learnt to deal with customers through the phone, it was bit challenging at the beginning but I enjoyed it at the end

Working at a call centre it helps you to deal with different race, rude and appreciating customers and at the end of the day you must make sure the customer is happy

Very relaxed and technical

Day typically starts off with scrum meetings, then everyone sets off for their duties. Lunch with colleagues is frequent. Environment and culture a bit too relaxed.

Technical and procedures

Eskom was of very high standards and encouraged knowledge and training however political influence agenda excludes my demographic. The experience I attained was on an international level and the depth of understanding of components in the system was highly demanded. This standard was unfortunately not serving political demands and has deteriorated to questionable current level.

Everything is on high standard

It's very exciting to work for eskom as they give you all the training you need and you get exposure of so many things. They always try to keep high standard of service to their customers. Safety is their number one priority

SLow pace

As an Engineer, you get bored of doing 1 thing over and over with old equipment and no innovation. The main focus is safety paperwork and no formal training, just over the shoulder training

Productive and fun

I really enjoyed working at ESKOM. If there’s opportunity to work again for Eskom, I’ll take it. The technical department is well structured and work processes are in place to ensure work is done properly

Semi skilled fitter and turner

The day by day job real good because I learn something new every day. My first week I've learned the basic safety rules on the plant and their importance, safety is a life style in the company.Every job there is a pre job briefing on how the job will be done. Overall pumps, valve, fans etc is mind blowing. The hardest part was to wait for the permit. The enjoyable part was to work in the containment because most of the time it's clean.

Very great company to work for.

I love Eskom, the culture is excellent. The women empowerment policies are excellent and in place. Chances of growth is also top notch. I can’t really complain. The only problem is that Eskom is a government business, so it get’s overwhelming when there is bad reviews, the public gets involved too.

Pros

Excellent benefits

Cons

Public interest

Fun workplace but productivity is not good

Learned project management skills, the hardest part of the job was having to work with insufficient resourdes. Typical day at work would involve attending to emails and meetings. The enjoyable part of the work was working hybrid

Pros

Friendly work environment

Cons

Lack of leadership direction

Stressful a lot as I'm working with autocrats

Management has no boundaries . They make the workplace their own chess board. The mandate of Eskom is a good one for the country. Technically as far as work is concerned, everything works for the best until some senior person who received a bribe somewhere will just come and change the whole scope to suit him.

No recognition for hard workers

Spend most of your day doing other people's job. No appreciation from management. make sure you study and advance if possible, otherwise time is wasted
