Just would like to execute my full potential in completing projects with my qualifications

Okay so I work with a great Team,Everybody has different personalities, But having to learn to deal and understand these different characteristics of each person is what makes me great .I'm not really a morning person I have to deal with a cup of coffee then ,I'm all smiles ...and ready to rock n roll with the days requirements.I love throwing in jokes also making it known I'm serious about my work even staying in late to complete individual tasks which were not completed during the day.I work in a very busy Department so my attention currently is divided to being all over all at once.But this is what keeps me going.

Pros: I'm looking to extend my knowledge and Potential to Planning
Cons: I don't mind working weekends and Overtime

Excellent company to work for.

Excellent company to work, comes with perks and benefits. On a typical day my duties and responsibilities are to monitor and control process manufacturing of crude oil based products such as; LPG, Asphalt, Diesel, Petrol, Lubes, Wax, DPK, Jet Fuel etc. The relationship amoung employees from different departments is amazing because as a team we have to work together to maintain smooth product manufacturing. Departments from Operations, Instrumatation, Maintainance and Safety department is outstanding. The motto is one team, one goal. Everyday I learn something new in my plant, we explore methods to optimize the production of quality products to meet our customers needs. I enjoy working with people from different departments together as a team. The most challenging aspect is is when the plant is not steady but that can easily be rectified by going through procedures, sampling and testing components of the product

Pros: Company is dedicated to always make sure employees needs are met
Cons: Long working hours.

Excellent learning curve

A typical work day involves checking my emails to see what came through after I left the office the day before and attending to those queries. We work in a very busy environment therefore I am constantly busy with new requests and following up on completion of old ones I have a very good relationship with my colleagues. We learn from each other. I came in to Engen with experience in Procurement.You have to work hard everyday and get things done, and for me it is not a problem because I am hardworking. I enjoy meeting new people at work and taking on new projects . I enjoy working on the SAP system and teaching others how to use different functions. Procurement at Engen is very fast paced, the challenge is that you are never just busy with one or two requests, requests come flooding in on a daily basis and I have to manage my time effectively and ensure things get done properly. The reason I am looking for another job is because Engen is downsizing.

Pros: Can get vast knowledge and experience
Cons: downsizing / retrenchment

Excellent team work

I look forward to going to work at the Refinery all due to the amazing co workers. They are always helpful and offer great advice to do things better. I have learnt how to communicate more effectively, how to meet deadlines and work with Hr systems. I enjoy working most with the learners that are under me in the learnerships and contributing to their development. The most challenging part of the job was communicating with superiors that sit in other provinces.

Pros: Great working relationships
Cons: no opportunity for growth

I am working for a good company which encourages a person to grow and look at themselves in a different way. Each and every company is different but working here encouraged me to learn and want to know more. I am working with different companies daily and engaging to different people everyday. I am working in an inspection department which is central so I need to engage with different departments in my company. I am always looking forward to come to work because I have a good relationship with my colleagues. the only thing that is challenging in my work space when people I holding back the crucial information especially when I want to draw the reports

Pros: The opportunity of being promoted is very high at my work place but that comes with the person's perfomance and whan there is a need or a vaccant space
