Haulpack Operator (Former Employee) – Jundee WA – 24 August 2013
This was my very first job in Mining. Coming straight from Hospitality, which I had been in for 28 years, it was a shock. I took with me, when I left, the achievement of becoming a driver of Haulpaks, and learning what FIFO was like and how to deal with it and the mining life. I enjoyed most of it except I didn't know, at first, how to combat the behavior of most of the people on site. I was used to going forward to people and I learned to keep very private and separate from the workers whilst staying friendly. I came away having become stronger and it was good experience.

Senior Driller (Current Employee) – Wodgina – 23 April 2015
Work together, hang out together, work out together, management was great, co-workers are like family, hardest part of the job spending time away from the family, the most enjoyable part is working as part of a great team to achieve our goals with an impeccable safety record and seeing what your hard earned money can provide for your family. Such a shame it couldn't last the mining slump.
Christmas and Easter holidays, Great camp, great friends.
Aside from missing my family there are no cons to speak of I loved working at Wodgina
enjoyable job but 12 hour shift from night to day was difficult.

Was always informed of what was required when starting work, and was always instructed what needed to be done. Working 1 week nights and 1 week days 12 hour shifts was the hardest part of the job. Learnt a lot about production. When things were running smoothly along the production line.
Excellent team environment and high ethical standards and procedures
