Sandvik is a global MNC specializing in various areas ranging from machine tool technology to mining and construction to producing seamless stainless steel pipes and tubes used in piping and heat exchanger industries.
Excellent work ethic and the company was completely committed to its core values - building relationships with clients, ethical business dealings etc.
Joined the company as a fresher in the Marketing and Sales dept. and had "on the job training" for six months which included understanding about the whole production process, dealing with enquires, order processing, costing etc., from a marketing perspective.
Was fortunate to have a group of highly energetic and enthusiastic colleagues around me with my boss at the helm of affairs.
The hardest part was obviously the requirement to work for long hours and trying to achieve the targets.
With highly motivated and professional people around me, it was exciting to outperform each other apart from having each other's back all the time - both during good and bad times.
A lot of opportunities for young people to grow in the industry
Long hours and an improbable and a stiff target to achieve
