We had days where we as a team would get together and have sport and have meals together. Getting to better know and understand each other as we come from all walks of life with different cultures and views.
Free lunch and drinks
Hands-on Motivated Meaningful and accomplished Pleasant environment Informal culture No promotions available due to company politics; someone from outside the company would rather be appointed because he is friends with someone instead of looking after internal candidates

Enjoyed the daily challenges. Workplace and co workers made the impossible possible. Put in a lot of long hours, however all targets where achieved. Only negative part that made me look for another job was that management could only appoint me as acting shift boss.
I grew at Petra diamonds. I was on their accelerated development program, where I gained managing skill. This is the company that was confident to appoint me as Head of Department in Human Resources Department. I enjoyed working under the General Manager and I had great support from head office. I learned to stand for what I believe in. My manager should confidence in me to lead the operation and to do my best. The company has grown over the years and approached me to rejoin them but I couldn't because I am a very loyal person. I was focused to my current employer and I wanted to build my profile. They could not also meet or beat my salary, hence I remained with my current employer. Honestly, they Petra diamonds is the best employer or company to work for, in terms of their passion to develop their employees and employment equity drive.

I am a hard working loyal individual who aim at completion of the job at hand at all costs, but strictly adhering to all health and Safety regulations. I am a team player and treat each member of my crew and colleagues with the utmost respect. I function very well under pressure and timelines. I strive to uphold the Mission and Vision of the company I work for at all times and treat my superiors with the respect they deserve and abide to their decision making and planning.
