A typical day comprises of a brief meeting with my project team about day tasks and admin management of department. 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. Field surveys and on site supervision and problem solving. The workplace culture is that of team work and camaraderie. I mostly enjoy developing solutions for customers.
Long hours and tight deadlines
Good Benefits, money will never be enough but I love my organisation. Can't trade Transnet with any organisation. Transnet is a best employee. I will like to grow (promoted) in other operational divisions

Learnt a lot at Transnet, had a great manager who was supportive and encouraged my development and growth. I was not micro managed yet found myself efficient and productive. I went all out proving myself and it was worth it.
Engineering team was well knit together and supported each when going gets tough. Very professional environment little or no time of playing around . Occasionally on Fridays will have a braai during lunch usually month-ends. Management on the other side not very approachable when it comes to coming with new ideas. The culture is very strict almost military style. The hardest part of the job was dealing with very bureaucratic procurement process and most enjoyable is working on dredger layups at the dry-dock away from the office. I learned that team work can make department great.

I had the opportunity to complete my apprenticeship with this company and learned almost all the skills needed to work in the engineering industry. The workplace culture was what discouraged me from gaining full employment and I made the leap into the private sector.
Transnet is a very big company and all of its operations is about safety, once you have a safety mindset it becomes easy working there, it is an environment runned by strict rules and a very high standard of safety your own safety and the safety of those around you, punctuality: time is the factor at Transnet from the time you report for duty making sure trains are running on times and occupatins are starting and finishing at the allocated time
My job is challenging, and exciting but the environment itself is a big deterrent in achieving my work goals and objective. There is clear set objectives set every financial year and a performance management system is in place to measure performance.
Working at Transnet help me to understand my field and the job properly as I was a learner pursuing a national diploma in electrical engineering. I gained more productive experience in each an every work I was giving to do.
Transnet teaches their employees how important their clients are ,punctuality,maintanance and always keep records also to worksafe as there are working with dangerous product that can cause fire,spillages so it very important to work under standard operations procedures
Offered opportunities for career advancement and management is very supportive and encourages proffessional growth. Available mentorship by experienced proffesionals.
Bursaries for further studies.
Fast paced environment to run CAPEX projects and deliver within time and budget.
