Chaotic but fun, laborious after a while
General Manager (Former Employee), Baar, ZGSeptember 8, 2014
Sometimes hard to see the forest for the trees
Baar is the centre of where things happen, but little sense of strategic thinking and poor governance

More productive cost saving
Process Supervisor (Current Employee), Steelpoort, LPNovember 19, 2013
When I had an interview with the works manager, he appreciated my growth in the team. That Day I learned the importance Batching section to be the heart of Glencore Xstrata lion ferrochrome, e.g I have to check contamination of the material and report, ensure the recipie is correct and check the Cr:Fe ratio's and the Combination of Chrome and sillica – more... to be correct in the mixture. my co-workers are heroes they know their story. the hardest part of the job is when the plant is running out of the limits, it is enjoyable to get the plant to a stable condition in a less time. – less

Hard work pays off
Mine Overseer (Former Employee), Witbank, MPJune 13, 2013
Pros: company petrol
Cons: long hours
Start early time is money and money is seconds. Manage people the way you would like to be managed.Treat all people fair. Mining through a strata with many coal seams can be challenging but its worth the fight. After a hard days work and targets achieved there is no better feeling.
