Great opportunity for growth

Proper planning of the day as some tasks are office bound and others are outside. Ensure that staff is present and key posts are manned. Ensure that computer systems are functional and goals set are on target. Attend scheduled meetings and follow up on queries. Report to management if any major problems occur as well as reporting on progress in goal achieving. Assist co-workers if the need arise to encourage team work. Hardest part of work is when performance appraisals are done and workers do not make the cut. Enjoyable part is over achieving on set goals and tenants appreciating efforts made to assist them.


Stable work environment


Sometimes taking things for granted

Goal driven and productive

My responsibilities were to do planned and unplanned maintenance. A typical day would be to issue out job cards as per train defects and as reported from the previous trip. I learned a lot because I was in charge of artisans that were out of my qualification field. I believe the management can improve in some areas because not all sectors of the company were properly managed. The hardest thing that I came across was when our customer would request quick turn around times with the reduction of staff that we had. The one most enjoyable thing was releasing the train knowing that it was defect free.


Better pay
