I started working at howden power I have learned much from the company, even though I was not working in full time basis .I was working on breakdowns and shut down on different power station in Mpumalanga, which sometimes last for a week to 3 weeks. I have being working under pressure almost every breakdowns and I was happy to be part of howden power team
At howden I have learn not just a trade but, respect, being tolerant, anger management, being positive all the time,wining vouchers during quality days, I have learn the philosophy, it says when the client speaks I listen. Working as a team.
Safety meetings in the morning, then inspections and coaching sessions, The hardest part of the job was to repeat the same thing over and over on a daily basis.The most enjoyable part was to send people home everyday healthy and without any injuries
* I'm used in working under pressure and believe in being more competitive in productivity for the value of money I earn. * I learned to respect my job as my company. * The Management of the Company I worked for was too power in such a way that many employees were not impressed of it during and after end of contract. * The hardest part of the job is when we were forced to work overtime with no compensation. * The most enjoyable part of the job is when we receive compensation for the services we rendered.
There was nothing for nothing
We worked 10hrs and above per day that was not inline with labor relations act.
each day was a lesson as there is no production without safety my supervisors and managers were good people they taught me a lot and am grateful for them. Sometimes employees can be fun but at the same time interesting and fun to work with. The hardest part was when a near miss or incident has been reported after 24hrs I really enjoyed working in that company, we worked as a team all the time.
Our aim to work with a target specific time,and our goal to make the client to be happy, and to obtain skills and knowledge and experience in a progressive organisation,co-workers we have family bond as we are trained to work as team player
Target to keep client job to be done in time
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

the first day at work was so difficult . I didn't have any idea about the product. but now I can built the product from start to finish. with the help of our management it was easy to learn the product. my co-workers are so supportive and helpful with all the problems you can come across. the most enjoyable part of the job is when the inspector tells you that your job is excellent.
