It was really a great working environment , I was just unfortunate that I lost a job at the company, if they can call me back I will certainly not hesitate to go back. We need such kinds of companies in SA , I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the relationship. Helping each other and improving and reaching their set production targets, they certainly achievable. It's one of the advance companies in terms of technology and quality products.
Pros

Daily workload is generally high, but can be accommodated if you have a well organized and willing team. Information and skill development is a huge part of the platform that relates to your effectiveness.
Respect diversity in the workplace, adapt and develop accordingly.

Not every person can be an efficient and effective manager, but merit needs to be taken into consideration.

Co-workers can be your solid foundation if fairness and humanity is open and truthfull.

Absenteeism and/or strikes places a huge burden and strain on the manufacturing enviroment.

People, opportunity and job satisfaction is of a very pleasing life adding value.
Pros
Lots learned and montly coffee rations.
Cons
Seasonal overtime.

I was suppose to have been given a study leave but at the same time be at work to load a transport that was scheduled to come and collect a product for Namibia. When your sub-ordinates do what their managers are doing, it becomes easier for the manager when there is a serious problem to attend.
Management focus is more on production than in employees success


the relation between workers and their line managers is very much vital and the hardest part of the job is that the line manager is still responsible for the job whether he personally did it or he delegated the sub-ordinate


When skill transferred is properly done within an organisation, is easy to delegate when required.
Pros
day off
Cons
late arrival of transport

it is a good place to grow if you to have a career in engineering. A nice environment to work in, with alot of friendly people who are always willing to help. But it requires dedicated and focused people to work there, as it is a 24 hour operation.
Pros

Cons
long hours

Interacting with customers daily creates a fast pace environment where we need to be friendly and helpful as excellent customer service is our goal. We need to ensure that we maintain excellent customer service in relation with maintainng an excellent on time and in full delivery schedule "OTIF".
Most importantly I have learned that a team player will bring more knowledge and focus in your work environment.

The hardest part of the job will be to train your customers to adhere to forecast accuracy.

The most enjoyable part of my job will be interacting with the customers and striving to sort out their queries and issues efficiently and effectively.
Pros

The dynamics of operations especially in-plants comes with challenges that makes you grow, one needs to be flexible in order to meet customer's requirements. I've learned that one need to be close to the decesion maker in the group as well as people on the floor this makes you one step ahead of every one. I've learned if you know your process flow any changes that comes from the customer you'll be able to deal with it and manage it properly including employees during the short notice of change overs.
Pros
You get exposed to diferent challenges, Respect
Cons
Sometimes one needs to work late

the day starts with a morning meeting once everyone is on the same age we then do what we do best.
work hard and play just as hard.

i have learned a lot from management regards to using every problem as an opportunity. there is no reason to over react as something has already been done, but more importantly how can we fix the problem and how can we prevent a reoccurrence.

I always help others and I am enjoying that, Complete my tasks on daily basis very important. I have learned that if you don't know something make sure that you ask first to do it right first time. Hardest part of the job is being limited by not growing within the company. The most enjoyable part is being passionate about what I do and being accountable also working independently.
Pros
Free issues of toilet papers
Cons
No growth

I do production planning, Scheduling and control, I also do inbound Logistics management, determining shifs activites for the machines.
Our management and co-workers are are great people to work with, my hardest time of my job is making sure that I plan production in a manner that there are no interruptions on the machines where a job goes to the machine but there are not all toolings available to produce the job, managing work in progress through out the production stages and communicating and coordinating all department inputing tooling into the production plan.
