Opportunity to broaden your skillsets.

Some great people with brilliant skills in their field. Salary can be more competitive, benefits are good. Opportunity to grow in your career. Can become stressful at times.

Working same job but different salary.

The things I didn't like about Sasol, we work the same job but are salary are not the same. The planning is very poor, they need to improve in planning.

Great company to work for. Great opportunity for career growth too.

I had a great time working for the company. Good environment to work at. Very supportive and professional. My only reason for having left was due to relocation. I just wish they had tried harder to place me at the Nelspruit branch.

Pros

Career growth and other benefits

Cons

Expensive medical insurance.

Great place to do a learnership

I really think sasol is a good place to be a learner and get experience working in chemical plants, the learnership programme is three years but it is possible to not get a permanent position after the three years

A good company to work for

A good company to work for, I enjoyed working there, but the management is not consistent nor fair when dealing employees, certain policies are still reserved for black folks only. good positions are also reserved for Indians and whites, most black people are educated but are not afforded career growths.

Pros

free coffee

Cons

racist management, they behave like you are on their farm.

Great company. Excellent benefits

Sasol is a great company to work for. The benefits are excellent. Hours are good. Very diverse company. Can be stressful at times. Sometimes cannot finish work during normal working hours and unwillingness from management to approve overtime to complete work. Always threat of restructuring every few years

Pros

Good working hours

Cons

Stressful at times Always a threat of restructuring

Very relaxed, friendly, and clean work environment

The problem is pay differences of people who do the same job. You get 1 Mechanical Fitter on 30K salary and another 55K. Most of those who are still on high salaries are beficiaries of the past regime. You will also get good but expensive medical aid.

Pros

Safety is a priority

Cons

Pay differences

Productive

The work was well but the culture was not good , there is culture of I have been working for Sasol and that what makes it difficult to work in the company. From the top management there is understanding but when comes to line managers is were the culture change

Glamorous from a distance

Starting salary was the worst I'd ever come across; very disappointing. Growth is not what was promised during interview. Retrenchments are a common practice; at least one every 7 years.

Cons

A lot of work at minimal pay.

Productive and very safety bound company

I worked very well with stuff and management of Sasol Durban Wax for just over 10 years. I can not say there was any friction between me and management. The only thing I can say is training and upgrading system needs to be thoroughly looked at.

Pros

I was enjoying seeing plant improvement from being mostly manual to being automated.

Cons

I was sad that we were not connected to the internet it was only the managers that were connected.

Pros

General health awareness

Cons

Working with chemicals

Follow workers are very helpful and cooperative.

Sasol work environment is very informal. You can dress casual. Make sure you do your work every day and do self development as well. You must balance your work out everyday.

Pros

Work functions

Cons

You work overtime if you cant get through all your work.
