Great company to work for

ProsCompany benefits
Maintenance Mechanic | Nelspruit, Mpumalanga | 03 Dec 2013
Place to always work in
My day will start early morning meeting Where we discussed the accomplishment of yesterday and planning for the day ahead of us which simplifies one's day. The most important thing is planing which helps one to know what spare does he have to attach the job and if they are enough. Communication is always the key in every work place which prevent breakdowns and help in managing things. the people I have worked with the are easy to accept they mistakes if there is one and that was helping me to do the same to them and the job continues smoothly. the hardest part is when the production management and the maintenance does not agree to some schedule because all team are looking at the company's best interest. the most enjoyable moment about my position is at all time because this is what I wanted to do since forever therefore I never feel out of place.
ProsEach day is a learning curve
Conssome days are too rest full.
Plant Operator | KwaZulu-Natal | 02 Aug 2012
Productive and fun at work place
I had a wonderful time and a very great opportunity to learn and understand the field of work place. I also learn how important is my safety of myself and my fellow colleagues. I learn to make my own decision that would save a mill at the end of the day.
Prosfree lunches and t-shirts.
Consover time
Harvester | Nelspruit, Mpumalanga | 01 Feb 2015
Motivation and making sure the team is part of managemant
Being a leader is very important as I had to deal with different people behaving all different yet at the end I need to make sure work is done even if we sometimes don't get along with the workers. I learn the best way of working with a team is wining there hearts and respecting them.
ProsBieng trusted you will do well when given task
ConsWorking overtime

An amazing adventure and experience with the paper industry
I must place on record my thanks to a wonderful company for providing me the oppertunity to serve them. Sappi has been an element in my life which brought out my skills and talents. my levels of aptitude developed due to the amount of new skills i have developed over the past 13 years and 8 months. It is heartbreaking to note that such a wonderfull company is now downsizing. I love my job.
Prosafter my accident, i was still employed to serve them
Consthe retrenchment
Completing CA articles (TOPP trainee) | City of Johannesburg, Gauteng | 18 Apr 2019
There are a lot of old people. The work/ life balance was good and the benefits were great. Growth opportunities are limited because the Sappi is a mature company
