Productive and fun to work

I learned how to work with people and how to work individually, the hardest part of the job is when the is no printing papers or the printing machine is damaged and at the same time the surveyors and samplers are taping. The most enjoyable time at work is when everything is up to standard and getting bonuses

Cons

long hours

Productive and Fun

Most of the time we would go underground to collect results for our Projects. What i learnt most was the culture of the mining industry as this was the first time i have ever been to a mine. I felt that management was amazing as the welcomed the students well into the company and they provided a lot of knowledge. My co workers were miners as well as fellow students from the Wits and other universities. The hardest part of the job was waking up 4 a.m. in the morning to go underground and collect results for the project. The most enjoyable part of the job is the was compiling the project and presenting it to the General managers at the company.
