mining equipment trainer assessor (Current Employee) - kalumbila, solwezi
everybody knows what they need to do, they are specialized but there is misplacement of talents especially in the management roles.

the general work force on the ground are always complaining every month end.


the hardest part of the job is trying to make sure that the policies that are set are followed only to discover that some of the top officials fight the policies and they walk away easily.


just seeing these people who came in with little or no knowledge about the piece of equipment and now they are competent operators, its a great feeling!
Pros
free lunch, transport, there is good facilities
Cons
houses which are built by the company resources are too expensive, there is only one shop which is equally exploitative
