It was a very good productive,you would love to work there.you'll get shift allowance if you work shifts.other weekends you'll get a special shift.

i'm always happy at work because i was working with the productive people.People they want to see the company grow.If i can get a job in that company,i'd take it because i was happy there.there are so many opportunities there for example they will give you a chance to act as a supervisor.

Production was our main responsibility because everyday we made sure that we produce according to target of the day.

Since I have started working in my life it was for the first-time I enjoyed working. And people I was working with where good and funny to work with. Though there where some people whom where there to kill our spirit cause when you try to better yourself they press you down. Management of Lonmin need to be honest with their employees not to be oppressed by those who call them shift booses and miners.

Pros

Energy boost

Cons

Paying overtime

It was productive when coming to our job.but treatment we got was very bad due to that we came undee contract and all promises we never met.

That company is good but mess up by the people who are selfish and only looking to benefit for themselves. Oppression from fellow black brothers. They need to change the system used to hire.woman getting promotions in bedrooms.is sbout who you know there.tgere are hard working people who are hard working but not noticed becouse there are not friends witanyome

Production is at it's best with hardworking and determined personnel

Lonmin is a very good company and it has a very promising future,yes our country is faced with tough economical problems thus making it hard for mines to be operational but they actually strive and fight to achieve what's best for company and it's personnel

Pros

If good production is achieved

Cons

Reasonable hours

Productive and non development

They produce more minerals and sometimes short of materials. Always zero harm is applied. Safety topics are held before continuing with the job cuts. Development is not there, we develop ourselves at the same losing our rates. Now I'm willing to join the team that is developing its own workers. The team is full of dreams and finding a way of how to defend hazardous.

Pros

Free shift in a month for safety representatives

Cons

Hours are accurate
