I enjoyed this role and was disappointed to leave. Work slowed down in March and several of the staff were laid off. One of the managers is now driving to make up the hours.

Pros

Early Start

Cons

Heavy work with chains

Management
Was this review helpful?

Worse management I've had in my entire working life 30 years, great co workers , some snakes.

Not a family friendly place at all, no support by management, will rely on sacking you within probationary period. Will put your health and safety at risk, holidays have been booked 2 years in advance. No warning , no support, will sack you drop of a hat. New management try making names for themselves and write staff been there for in excess of 8 years.

Great bunch of guys to work with.

Management are complete snakes. They dont have any problems stabbing workers in the back before sacking them. You get accused of things with no proof supplied. Its your word against management/directors. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone

Pros

Made some great mates

Cons

Dishonest management. Lack of communication.

Pros

nil

very long hours for a salary based job

Good environment

Yeah basic day included, helping where is needed and what surpervisor thought was best for the company. Clean up the workshop and general maintance on equipment. Collect steel for the yard and bring it inside the workshop for the fabicators and boilermakers to allow them to continue working.

Pros

4 days a week

Cons

Nothing

Over all a good Company to work for.

Check and perform pre starts on vehicles, fill out run sheets for the day. Travel to mine site,meeting with supervisor before going underground. Hold S1, S2 & S3 certificate, CPR & Fire how to fill out Personal Risk Assessment. NO COMMENT ON MANAGEMENT Co-workers were a good team to work with. Getting underground on time, also being able to get out on time. The most enjoyable was being able to get the work accomplished on the day. Also the co-workers I was working with.

Pros

Bonus

Cons

Break Downs of the vehicles
