Learning

Working in a male dominated sector is not easy but my dominant personality stood out. Office order disorganised and all over the place. Working on last in first out basis put me in a sticky position when mining was at its lowest. Company I would have loved to grow into. Many opportunities for growth and self develpoment.

Pros

Self developement

Cons

Working on likited duration contract

production driven,timeouos deadlines set to completion

Great company to work for,although came in on contractual basis mostly,management supportive in individual decision making,remedial works on-going.A typical day at work would involve liasing with workforce(labour),sub-contractors,consultants and professional teams on a adhoc basis.Executing work sequences in line with plans,drawings,any changes or remedial work to prioriotise. Workplace culture is always helpful and supportive,educational in instructing safety practices and implementing safety on site The hardest part of any job would be not necessarily getting the proper support from management or unco-operativeness from workers or sub-contractors.Hence,disciplinary actions,warnings and penalisation come into play,or corrective measures taken. The most enjoyable part of any job would be when all parties and role players come together to action and execute a job well done,meeting deadlines,within budget,with available resources and time constrains. To be able to step back and see and appreciate a job well done and give each other the proverbal 'pat on the back' in support and recognition of each others ability and support in challenging moments.

Pros

subbies functions etc site braais

Cons

Long hours and having to meet deadlines
