Everyday was a busy but exciting day. Always something to learn if you didn't learn something you did not work that day. Some rough day's to meet your targets but exciting, never be a boss be a leader. Good time miss those day's

At Sandvik I learned about importance of safety, multi tasking, I learned to have great relationship with my colleagues, team work. I started as a bender and ended up operating a cnc lathe machine which build my confidence, added a lot of information with machine operation. I value Sandvik.

I can still consider going back to Sandvik because of their work training and experience. They do give a chance if you want to carry on with your studies. I can consider relocating if I get a job.

I was a learner and the exposure i got was very baluable. I gained finance experience especially in the creditors management environment. The culture was vibrant and enabling given the fact that Sandvik is an international company. Room for growth was a reality. Remuneration was still below par given that i was absorbed as a learner.
Pros
Learning from senior employees
Cons
Remuneration

I would still love to work for sandvik some day, but they must start to do a bench mark on the salary side, compare it with other companies like themselves.

The job that I do is more balanced and also challenging

Mining industry is a very critical and challenging industry and dealing with customers who always need service urgently ,makes me to be flexible and also extra hard working .

I enjoy working with customer and having meetings with them to build relationships . The Salary I receive is fair for the years I have worked here. We also receive performance bonuses every April . There is also job security ,though growing is a challenge . The job culture of Sandvik teaches us to work as a team and also be pro-active always

Monotonous and repetitious work
Lack of up-skilling, however, the opportunity to grow one needs to make it possible by speaking out and persisting.


I took with the communication tool and skill

the understanding of how mining operates and that one needs to be disciplined to pursue growth and up-grading one.
Pros
50% medical aid contribution
Cons
flow of work does not slow down however, it get consistent
