Kumba Iron Ore Employee Review

Kumba Iron Ore is a productive and a fun company to work for. Management are always supportive and encouraging their subordinates to excel.

Kumba Iron Ore looked after me for nearly 16 years. I have only good things to say about the company. Management provided a platform for me to grow. I also managed to complete my studies whilst employed at Kumba Iron Ore. The working hours are perfect. It allowed for a balance of work and leisure. Management also allowed me to run a lot of the Wellness programmes of keeping the employees active and healthy. I used to arranged running, walking, spinning teams. This was greatly enjoyed by all levels of management. I would recommend Kumba Iron Ore to any young aspiring professional or Engineering graduate to join the Kumba team. Due to the economic down turn within the broader South African environment and the prices of Iron Ore prices dropping, a number of us were offered the voluntary retrenchment packages. I opted to take the voluntary package. I would go back to Kumba any time if were offered a position again.

Pros

The company provide free cellphone, free lunches and motor vehicle allowances.

Cons

Working hours were great

Productive

My day is normally admin orientated, with typing of memo's, letters, minutes, flight bookings, managing my manager's dairy, etc. Our project team is in Kathu and work their on the Sishen Western Expansion Project. I have good communication skills and I can interact with all race groups and with people from all walks of life. I like working with people. The hardest part is to keep everyone all the time satisfied.
