Group Information Systems Manager (Former Employee) –  Fassifern NSW12 June 2018
Good pay but a culture of petty politics, nepotism and too many long term employees set in their ways with no inclination to change.
Centennial Coal has so much capacity for improvement.

Productive crew with an upbeat attitude in adverse conditions.
Multiskilled Mineworker (Former Employee) –  Capertee, NSW12 January 2013
An hours travel time. Followed by a 9 hour shift, rotating on a day to day basis between duties. Driving the Miner, Cable handler, Shuttle car operator, Bolting, Supplies, Ventilation, Housekeeping etc. Followed by an hours travel home.

Learned Production, Development procedures in Bord and Pillar Mining Methods. Already had previous experience in other tasks serving 2 years with a contracting company.

Management conversed with the Deputy who passed information to us.

Was placed with a relatively young and hard working crew with a couple of older more experienced Miners who passed on their knowledge. Staying positive in sometimes poor Mining conditions and speculation of the Colliery going into care and Maintenance was hard at times but was achieved.

Coming from a Maintenance crew of 9 men. Which on some weeks would complete 2 Box moves, 2 Belt moves along with Pipe work and Bolting. Production wasn't as strenuous. I would have to say handling the Miner cable would be the hardest. Depending on the driver.

Descent workmates and a reasonable workload would have to be the most enjoyable part of the job.
