Occupational Health Nurse | Johannesburg South, Gauteng | 29 Feb 2020
The hardest part of the job is not having resourses to get the job done.
There is inconsitency within the department which at time brings about frustrations. Management very beurocratic leading to bottle neck reporting structures are constricted and one is not given well deserving answers meaning no rationale from workers.
Commodity Manager | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 04 Apr 2018
Excellent Working Environment
Depending on the nature of the project scope, one might be required to work additional hours in order to meet project deadlines. Management is always willing will to support its staff and external employees.
Safety Officer | South Africa | 05 Jul 2019
My typical day at work was when we have a explosion in one of the Engine room.I was so terrified as i was thinking of the possibility of fatality.
During the root cause analysis i have learned that the Fire direction system must always work and all the circuit breakers must be serviced as per periodic maintenance schedule.
Management team are always supportive and they are ensuring engagement with the employees
Dealing with maintenance personnel.They are not risk based thinking it very difficult to get buy inn from them.As they believe we giving them lot of paperwork.
I enjoy conduction safety inspection as I always learn the process and able to advice.
Recreation Coordinator | Glenvista, Gauteng | 17 Jun 2014
Extremely challenging, but have learnt allot for the 15 years that I was employed at RW. Lots of potential, but there is too much movement in management structure, which has stagnated many processes that were suppose to be implemented. Having eight various managers, really placed me in an awkward place. Its a great company to work for, but unfortunately too many incidents are reported and too many staff suffer the consequences.
Hardest part of the job, was travelling and being diabetic made it more exciting, but over came many obsticles over those years. I have had no more scope at the company, but will highly recommend them as a good company to work for.
ProsIncentive and thirteen cheque
ConsWorked on all public holiday i.e. Cape Argus, Two Oceans, Comrades etc
