Fast paced environment, always changing, high focus on development and safety. Realtime production figures shown on large screens throughout the factory. (OEE, MD/hr, Waste %, Delay %) Teams of five Operators (one being the main operator) with different sections and one Shift Process Technician per asset. Not a very physical job but you tend to be on your feet throughout the day checking, prepping raw materials and applying them onto the machine, preventing possible delay issues, etc. Operators relieve each other on three breaks per shift. Handover meeting at the start of shifts to discuss the incoming issues re production and plan for the shift ahead. It's very competitive and rewarding at the end of the day when your team is leading on results.

Production Operator (Current Employee) - Springs, Gauteng
Working for Kimberly - Clark is good with the market salary that they pay. The culture is also great. Hours of work are balanced for one to also spend time with family. The bursary opportunities are well equipped to help employees with enhancing their career.

production operator (Current Employee) - Johannesburg, GP
day at work is same day same work. i've learned a lot from my workplace, trust is earned, and to gain respect is hard. i've learned also to cover yourself at all times, as to your co-worker is the closest you will have to be your back-up. working as a team is more important than anything. the knowledge i've learned i can use in the future. management is management, leads to were they need to get. hardest part is to get support to reach the targets you need to get. most probably the most enjoyable part of the job is that with all the hard work of each shift, that you have reached your goal even though the following day will be exactly the same. co-workers is your team, if you don't have them, you can't get any where.
Pros
fun activities
Cons
long hours

The work was as expected and I was doing the pretty standard stuff. The hours were good and the rates were great. The people were nice and they are big on the safety of their employees
