Job Work/Life Balance
Working during shutdown.
Mechanical technician (Current Employee), Secunda, Mpumalanga – May 20, 2013
Pros: free food, gifts and overtime.
Cons: injuries and negative people
Arriving at work at 05:30 to take work handover from night shift. First thing you find is night shift work was not finnished. Now you need to plan for your day shift work and night shift work that was not finished. Need to always stay positive even in difficult time that will help even your staff to try their best to do work for you. Remind them of – more... the target day and motivate them as to why we are here. What I have learned is that soem peolple are will try to take a step backwards just because they need more overtime. The more they stay on job the more overtime they are getting. Now as a technician you need to check artisans work hourly and keep records and check you schedule if your works day is still under controll. The most enjoyable part of job is when mission is complete and everything is according to schedule. – less

A typical day at work would be a busy day doing all my tasks and keeping the end users satisfied with our services. I have built up a huge amount of knowledge towards software and IT technology that I enjoy mostly. My Management is very professional and fair towards all the employees. I enjoy working with my co-workers they are willing to assist when – more... needed and supports me with every task I take on. The most hard or frustrating part of my work is processes that’s not laid out to all the Departments we are working with and it makes the time span for a request and or task much longer that needed.
