Typical day you have to run around and are treated like a slave.
You cant learn much there for they allways need you on the job,

Only certain people gets training and you need to be in there good books.

Culture is good it just needs more work for all colours.

Hardest part off job is you can do your best , they allways untankfull, and just say you get payed to do it.

Most enjoyable part of job is , nowing you set a plant machine and equipment correct and see the production running.Nowing you can work without the guidance of a supervisor.

And doing fault finding on machine systems and fix it super good.
Pros
Braai end of year and very good quality tools and equipment
Cons
Stressfull hours and if you in a overhaul in maintenance work is not epreciated.

Meeting with Senior Engineers and Program manager about project finances, cashflows, and progress tracking, technical issues with engineers.

Writing technical specs and solutions for various projects.

Drafting Technical Demand Requests for upcoming projects.

Meetings with Supply chain department to track procurement progress.

The workplace culture is that of team work and camaraderie.

I mostly enjoy developing solutions for customers.

I have learned that this company takes a good care of people and they prefer a person to come to work wearing uniform everyday.

I also learned that their questions during interview are not as difficult as you can Imagine before the interview

Typical state owned company. Badly managed. Resources hard to come by. No disipline. Basically run by unions. Assets not properly maintained. Frustrating if you wish to take pride in your job.

Due to BEE policy I know there is no chance of advancing up the ranks

the need for technical expertise is there. the are gaps in the primary operation where the presence of technical personnel can improve efficiency and productivity.

there is aging workforce, old generation under-qualified personnel in senior position.


job creation is priority , not profitability.

Cons
outsourcing available skills and duties
