Fault finding and inspections using centre lining targets, daily safety inspections. Never assume, always ensure you have facts and done your research. Management could be tough but under economic crunch and fast moving environment it is understandable. Co-workers are from different cultures and backgrounds, so it is fun to learn how different cultures work in a team to reach the same targets. Persuading management to use different methods in production or using alternative ways to improve safety by removing, mitigating or reducing risks. The results.
Relatively unstructured at the time so there was plenty of scope for change and innovation.
Freedom to introduce innovations.
Lack of formality in policies and procedures could sometimes be frustrating.

12 hour 3 day shift rotation Only one technician on shift on duty Day support on other work schedules Respond to support activities via radio. six Plants to manage + plus maintenance schedules and plugs an lights. Hardest part, being yelled at from three to four different places at once. Enjoyable part, clocking out.
50 % medical aid, 9% employer provident fund contribution
long hours, unskilled management, unskilled HR
I worked for this company for 5 months. was very good in the beginning but there were lots of complications around the managers and money problems work ethic and job security. they paid me a basic salary with no UIF or unemployment fund. no medical aid and no PAYE. Also facilities were not so up to code.
had weekends off. no working at night and no working on public holidays
bad managers, no benefits and no job security.
1. Dailey equipment checklists, attending breakdowns (if any), attending to jobcards raised during and in the previous shift.2. I have learnt how to handle new equipment installation and comissioning and also the importance of safety in the workplace.3.Good, though I believe there is room for improvement in certain areas.4. My co-workers value team work very well.5. Nothing really I consider to be hard.6. The most enjoyable part is problem solving.
I was enrolled with unisa for a Diploma in Pulp and Paper Technology, my day at work was divided into two parts. 70 to 30 % ratio of working hours, from 8 to 2 I was working and learning the process, and 2 to 4:30 was commited to my studies.I learned to operated automated machines, fork and clamp truck driving, and the relevance of commitment.Management was good. I reported to our Trainign officer, but was placed under the watch and instruction of the floor and shift manager. there two other process leaners who were there a year before me. They helped me understand and grow as far as knowledge was concerned.The hardest part of the job was when we had to cut big roll of tissue paper using hand blade until the core. It made the hand sore and was very tiring.Everyone was kind for me, and most enjayble was when I passed my fork truck driving lessons, machine operation evaluation and when I could be left alone to do the work
tituin paid for me
Received stock and issue stock from store to the plant( machines), allocation of stock to different location or bins, processing stock to the system using SAP SYSTEM, i have learned how to use SAP System and to manage time effectively and the hardest part of my job when we have the break down and no parts at the store to be issue out to solve break down, reason being parts ordered but not yet delivered, most enjoyable part of my work cycle count.
free lunch when reaching target
Clocking in, daily plant checklists, plant health analysis, corrections on faulty equipment. Working on Worl's Orders and fillng in job cards. As a senior maintenance person assisting junior staff on breakdowns and planned miantenance.
subsidized lunch, cheap staff sales of produce.
untrained operators, disorganized stores, slow buying department, a lot of unneccessary procedures.
My work starts of at 8 am where I am responsible for ensuring that people are adhering to the quality system in place. I am responsible for 8 machines where I offer them training and support to achieve high quality standards.I work with two colleagues and report to the Corporate QA Manager. The hardest part of the job is trying to change people's mindsets so that they can better improve their processes. It is also the most rewarding part of the job when they do start changing their behaviours.
flexi hours, subsidised staff transports and lunches.
