Enjoying the work but no job security at this stage.
Haul Truck Operator (Current Employee) – Clermont Coal – 19 October 2013
I enjoy operating the haul trucks and have adapted well to nightshift. Part of learning my job also encompasses enhancing my knowledge of the mining operations. I find the Supervisors easy to converse with and happy to explain finer details. I have enjoyed meeting new co-workers and developing new friendships. Adapting to night shift on my current roster of 9.30pm to 5.30am was challenging as I feel the full 12 1/2 hours shift easier to manage. There is a certain amount of camaraderie that makes your shift enjoyable, plus knowing you are working in a safe environment. When your crew reaches its targets, that in itself is an enjoyable aspect of the job.
