Typical day in the Pilbara
Procurement & Material Handling (Former Employee) –  Curtis Island QLD17 January 2019
A typical day would be between 10 and 12 hours ensuring steel was loaded out on time to site , dealing with missing pieces ,answering to management where we were at , conflict resolution , working to conditions , adhering to workplace safety.
The hardest part of the job apart from the roster was ensuring all steel was accounted for as it came in the yard , crossed checked to the manifest then placed in a bay in the laydown yard.
The most enjoyable part of the job was self satisfaction in knowing you were a part of the project and did the best you could day in day out.
Liaising with management, other department & engineers on a daily basis was rewarding too as I gained new knowledge and insight on how the pieces of the project went together.
But in saying that I don't want to do Fly in Fly out anymore and wish to be home every night
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long Hours /away from home for 28 days

A typical day at work always starts and ends with Safety which has always been the number one priority. Working with Bechtel is very easy because the tools are all ready for the job plus the people who surround you are willing to help out. Management is very supportive and everybody is working professionally. Bechtel has a diversified workforce where great ideas are of value. This is where you feel great while working.

Pros
Reasonable good money
Cons
Long hours

Sen. Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Gladstone QLD14 August 2018
There are systems in place at the work place. Managers have authority to make decisions and they are supported in their decision making processes, this makes execution of the work much easier. Also the level of technical competency is very high making decision making easier and faster.
