Boilermaker | South Africa | 26 Sep 2017
Very productive and good people skills are motivated
Some days are hard when reporting to management in the mornings just to find out what happened on the shifts before you nocked off before. The team effort to let the work proceed as normal was very good and the planning of work tremendously well as all party's come together to find the solutions to any problems and the executing of the work is done professionally. the hardest part of the job is when we wait for material to be delivered to execute work. The most enjoyable part of the job is when it is done properly and management reward the people for work well done.
ProsWhen working long ours they let you go sooner on RNR to go home to your family
ConsLong trips per day from work to village and waiting for materials to be delivered.
