Early start, long day, everyone is treated with respect and work well to have a good result come end of their shift. I learned to have patience, look after workmates and machinery, respect for the nature of the underground environment Hardest part of job was frustration when machine breaks down and you can't complete your tasks. Enjoyable part of the job would be a successful shift underground, working well within a team and completing your tasks is rewarding.

It was ok to work for Barminco, Good experience. There was a lot of hands on and physical work involved with many of the jobs allocated but most of the guys will give you a hand and vice versa, was still a lot of the old school culture when i was there, which was good, work hard and safely, give each other a hand, don't whinge and moan. Made some good mates there
Pros
Good people
Cons
Away from home

Pros
Challenging Environment

Not family oriented at all. Hard management to talk to, even when “our door is open “ speech was incorporated. A lot of smoked mirrors Apart from crew mates, a frustrating place to work and moral up and down
Pros
Crew mates
Cons
Management. Pay. High turnover of employees. Moral

this busy workplace always had you moving with a wide range of underground machinery to look after from drills to trucks, which gave me good and a wide variety of work and knowledge.
