Best platform for growth and learning

Trasnent NPA has varsity body knowledge which us useful to a self starter. Proper documenation and risk management material that provides proper guidance. I have been exposed to Enterprise Risk Management, Business Continuity Management and Health and Safety aspects.l was afforded the ability to work with incredible management abd operation staff. It is true an experience l would treasure. Working in Marine industry has been a phenominal. Working at Transent gave me an edge to persue more on Risk Management space. Cultural diversity caught my attention as well, as it gave me an awakening call to seek and understand cultural dynamics in the region.

Pros: Great platform for learning and development
Cons: Ineffective communication channels

Great opportunities to learn and grow.

Transnet is a good company to work for, my colleagues are interesting and fun people to work with. There is a lot of work to get through but it can be fulfilling. I have learnt a lot doing this job. One of the most challenging aspects of this job is the red tape one has to work through.

Pros: Great learning opportunity
Cons: Not enough opportunities for growth

Good customer relations and a team player

On a typical workday i start with going through my emails and attending the meetings. This helps me to get to plan the day ahead, getting my ducks in a row in the form of scheduling the sub-tasks. I also ensure that the resources and tools are available and accessible before starting the day's task/project. With almost 10 years of experience there is so much that i have learnt ever since i started working for the company. That includes amongst other things design, project and product management, quality management, engineering processes etc. I enjoy attending meetings wherein we conceptualise the designs, be it the locomotive, trucks and coaches. Furthermore,i like the part where we plan, strategise and do the scope of work for the product we planning to design and how this is going to be monitored and controlled.

Pros: Very Conducive environment
Cons: Not Enough challenges

Transnet is the great company to work for

Whilst I was working with Transnet, I had to meet deadlines, and we had targets that the company had to meet and that required for me as in individual to be part of a team, deliver on time and most importantly to work safely. I was required to go an extra mile to assist the company to achieve the targets sets and that gave me a lot experience as I was able to work independently and achieve the set goals. Challenging situation for me is whereby I had to make decisions and come up with solutions.

Pros: Career growth
Cons: Work under pressure

Extremely knowledgeable

It is a great exposure working with people that are qualified and well trained in their job. I have gained so so much knowledge especially on practical side. I have an amazing relationship with my co-workers, they makes me feel at home at all time in particular. I have learnt so many things, I have learnt to be more hands on during the tasks given, working together as a team, installation and commissioning, troubleshooting and faulty-finding, general administration, drawings and design. I enjoy working under pressure because it where I am gaining much considering the work environment I am at. The most challenging aspects of the job is where we are working on a breakdowns and we have to be more efficient and there is too much pressure.

Pros: Highly exposed in the field
Cons: Breakdowns occuring
