Making sure you know your job description well and that you understand your responsibilities including your duty of care. Management(Client & Linkforce) aren't as clued in when you first get to site so vigilance and patience are great attributes.

Not a company that values loyalty or respect they run on bullying fear tactics and strive to keep the work force on edge .
They mould new perspective supervisors to treat everyone with disdain and groom those who like to rat and snitch on everyone else.

Safety is not a concern and all injuries will tried to be covered up before the client is aware, under reporting is rife.

Entry level only
There are better mining jobs out there but you can get your foot in the door with these guys.

Most supervisors ok but always under pressure and working conditions are harsh

Best thing is you can choose your site and no pressure to work more shutdowns than you want

Travel in your own time between village and site, sometimes forced to work through lunch or wait til 430, no toilets provided or vehicle to get to one, one crib room for dozens of people so people standing when you do get a break, organization of flights and transfers between shuts a shambles but they will harrass you hard if you leave crib room without safety glasses on even when its not a site rule. The shutdown managers never even introduced themselves.
Pros
makes you appreciate other companies
Cons
mdny workers think this treatment is acceptable even normal

Linkforce has been a good home for me as a professional boilermaker where I have been exposed to a culture of hard work and team work.With linkforce we have scored goals in terms of service delivery.The only down side is there are few opportunities for permanent work or family oriented roster.
Pros
Enough work
Cons
Temporary

Treated like a child, terrible pay for tradie, wear PPE to and from work looking like a filthy worker at the airport. Transported around the Pilbara in a coach from one shudown to the next, sleeping in a chair for a 10 hour break on the way to the next shut. Hot bed or two up in a donger... Centre Link you can keep it.
Pros
Free sight seeing tour of Pilbara
Cons
No pay for inductions or travel.

This company operates in remote areas of Western Australia. Employees could be gone anywhere between 5 days to 28 days at a time. Workplace culture was good, crews had time to prep before maintenance was to take place. Once the site had begun its shutdown, everyone on site was focused on the job at hand.

After many years in construction up nort I took opportunity to work for them just to keep myself busy. But I have chosen the worst company probably. This company is a joke with strange policies and culture. Apsolutely disgraceful, need to wear PPE on way home, what for? This is my time I am not paid for it and choice of clothing is my personal thing. Also rate $40 for trade person is apsolutely unacceptable. Any labour hire company in Perth will pay you $36 for local work. Unfortunately due to mining downturn we are forced to do any job to survive. And those guys know it and use us to get bigger profit and own benefits.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everithing

Shutdowns are busy, so time goes quickly. Great workmates, everyone works well together. Tools and equipment are well organised. Only two uniforms is a bit stingy. Work is a bit sporadic, a lot of down time between jobs.
Pros
Great workmates
Cons
Downtime between jobs
