Build underground drilling and mining equipment. Learned about the operation and maintenance of this equipment. Management is friendly and approachable. Workplace morale was low at times, and inter departmental relationships were weak. Most difficult part of my job was documenting the development of the projects I oversaw. I enjoyed the experience and recommend Sandvik as a worthwhile place of employment.
Pros
Popcorn
Cons
Weak interdepartmental relationships

That was company dealing with mining stock items, also demanding concentration be able to planning,organise,lead and control your work. No room for picking error especially when picking for a break down since there's too much cost involve.rather delay picking while seeking for clarity than wrong picking.long hours when it's pick time and overtime indeed will be requested,good management from the senior management which made it easier for resources on the floor together with supervision
Pros
stock take result should be 99.9 %

I was responsible for Africa as a continent. My role was to advise and manage legislation on all the different countries on labour relations matter. I have learned a great deal on different cultures and their diversity and in cooperate with the organizational culture. We were encouraged on participating management style. My challenges on my job was to incorporate company rules and regulations with other countries legislations and other litigations. Traveling, team work and job enlargement was my highlight.

My typical day at work starts off with following up with suppliers on the progress they have made on the day before, sometimes on the week before which ever have the highest priority. Getting the relevant Project documents in on time and getting them approved. I take part in Project Meetings to provide the information I have received from the suppliers to the Project team. I have learned a lot from the industry and the requirements of getting the work done in the best quality, quantity and lead times to our clients. I have gained a lot more self motivation, discipline and confidence in my work and in myself as a person to deal with the stress of the work and getting the job done. Management has always been a part of what I do at the company as they have contributed to my success at Sandvik Mining Systems. Wherever any issues arise, Management could always be approached for guidance and assistance in getting a resolution. Our workplace culture involves everyone from the cleaning staff to top management and everyone gets treated with dignity and respect on the same level. We are all one Sandvik and moving forward as a team. The hardest part of the job is to get the suppliers to actually stick to their promised and committed delivery dates to the Project Sites. This has a huge impact on the Project and always have a cost implication. The most enjoyable part of the job is to interact with different people on different levels and to get to know them. Getting the knowledge of what they do at their company and how their equipment works. Being able to see on hand - more...
