The Harmony Gold Mine is a productive mine, yes, but more stressful as you are forced to a bonus system for you to perform, to reach your target. We do long hours most of the times....

Poor working condition

Only desperate job seekers would like to work in that particular mine.i think it is ideally for those who are starting to work in the mine, and those closer to retirement.

It is always rewarding to work at Harmony especially when coming to renumerations and bonus rewards are pleasant. Harmony is a stable Company with a fair treatment among employees. Harmony takes care of community around with skills developments program by sending students to Wits University to have careers in mining studies.

A typical day at work

A typical day at work would be to start at 6 o'clock, do the designated work that was put out, and go home at 3 o'clock. The hardest part of the job would be to repair cables, ect during the day, and it would be stolen at night.

Very challenging and more experience.

It was a pleasure working at Harmony Gold. The management and staff were very proffessional and helpful. I gained a lot of experience on site and in the office and my confidence also increased. I managed to complete my Work Integrated Learning and graduated. Unfoetunately my contract ended at the end of 2017 but I would love to work there again in future.

It is not simple to get job of your qualification

If anybody can be allowed to study at the field of his choice through financial assistance and if workers can be allowed to raise their views. Most of miners,shift bosses and other positions are occupied by people who paid bribery and selling their bodies in exchange for better jobs.

Productive and Challenging

Every morning at 06h15am I start the day by going to the Self Managed Team Meeting which comprises of every employee and Every Level Of Plant Management. we preview what was planned yesterday with regards to production targets, safety and breakdowns if the objectives were met or not,and we also get feedback from the Shifstman and Artisans about the current condition of the Plant. from the Meeting I get to the office and write the production report, and follow-up on the new breakdowns if they have been attended to. later in the day I generate new orders for the items needed on site and also make a follow up with suppliers. I learned a lot about leadership and how to handle employee behavior. The management is supportive and willing to see you as an employee achieve your personal endeavors. the work culture is lively such that every Thursday we have a safety meeting were all the employees attend and it is a platform for anyone to ask whatever question and jokes are made as part of the meeting. The hardest part of the Job is to correct an employee who believes that they are always right. The most enjoyable part of the Job is to achieve the Planned Volumes safely at the lowest sustainable costs.

Pros

bring your own lunch

Cons

8-10hours

Relatively safe work environment

The job involves a risk of harm that is very high and there is no security over safety. I have learned to work in teams and at times take the Leadership position. Exposure to extensive heat is a disadvantage but the relationships built in the workplace are for life.
