Poor work enviroment

The work required to be undertaken was unfortunately done by unskilled labour supplied by the client. productivity lost due to on the job tutoring. All the products used were specialised for concrete repair having to be used timeously and cleanly something completely foreign to the calabour of staff. The site safety was a problem with the violent strike action of the unions.

Have been better but depreciating of late

It was a good place to work at in the beginning, but now they have taken all the salary benefits of the project away from white collars with any discussion. It was said to be a way to "save" money for the company. Very discouraging.

Amazing Mega Project with new people and a Fantastic learning Experience

We worked from 7-5pm on weekdays and 2 Saturdays / month .All overtime is compensated provided it was agreed prior with Line Managers .Unfortunately work became very cumbersome and boring .Management was very young and in most cases either friends or Family of Senior Managers .They lacked experience but because of the relationship with Mangers they were promoted and guided to key positions and enjoyed permanent positions , bonuses etc MHPSA is great Company with great values and Culture .

relaxed

The job is filled with uncertainty. I only work night shift. I work for a contractor under Eskom. There is no real guidance on the task at hand. I need to get all information myself.

Daily Work

The culture of workers in South Africa are challenging for a productive oriented Construction Manager from the USA. The workers tend to be lax and you have to be sensitive to the culture in order to stay afloat. By developing a hands on good working relationship with all the different contractors I have been able to get more production from my responsible contractors than most.

Pros

The challenge

Cons

Lack of skilled labor available
