Bunch of thieves
Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) –  Illawarra NSW4 January 2017
Worst paying contractor in Illawarra. Promised workers that they were guaranteed work when new contract secured, did not inform that this was on the proviso they accept and sign a contract that was around $15000 a year less for 40 hour week day night shift than pay originally - liars and grubs. This contract triggered nearly all current workers to refuse to sign and walk away. If you have any sense you will realise all you will ever get from this mob is deceipt and continually lowered pay and conditions.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Lies, deceipt, contempt of workers and lowest pay of all mine contractors.

12hr shift underground
underground miner (Former Employee) –  Mackay, QLD1 June 2014
arrive for work 30 mins early, ensure all correct ppe is on myself, attend pre-shift meeting with mine manage and discussing any safety concerns, then break off into a development meeting, given an overview of work to be done for the shift, I worked with employees of the mine. the hardest part of the job was the dust and the heat. the most enjoyable part of the job was ending the day knowing I had completed my jobs safely according to site rules
Pros
camp facilities
Cons
12 hr shifts

Safe workplace
Apprentice boilermaker / welder (Former Employee) –  Newcastle9 October 2012
I enjoyed fabricating the jobs.

I learnt that the head office in Queensland only look at figures in a financial sense and they chew and spit workers out. Quite a few of us were made redundant on Friday the 5th of October 2012.
