Best chief surveyor ever had in Newmont Ghana

 Managed the survey section the best ever and that put stop to resignations in the section.

 Executed routine surface mine in-pits and out-pits surveys and contract surveys for the company.

 Synergized routine daily survey job requirements and got bought in by the entire team which led to effective knowledge transfers and cover ups within the team and outside.

When I started at newmont the atmosphere was rough but easy enough to handle.
A lot of unnecessary stress put on everyone, every day started with a negative prestart meeting.

When training new truck driver, it was almost impossible to get the dispatch people to cooperate. Supervisor where not much help either. Th training manuals where not consistent.

A typical day at work was pretty much a carbon copy of a day at work on most mine sites. It's all pretty generic these days.

What I learned from working for Newmont was don't ever work for Newmont or any other mining company again.


The management, from the highest level to the lowest, was petty, vindictive, unimaginative and backward thinking.


The workplace culture was pretty much the same as the culture on most modern mine sites - toxic! There is an instilled culture of betrayal, back stabbing, malicious gossip and vindictive and petty revenge for any slight, real or imagined

.

The hardest part of the job was having to put up with most of the people I had to work with and for.


The best part about working for Newmont was the roster, the free health benefits and the ( mostly ) permanent room. It hardly made up for all of the other negative stuff though.
Pros
Even time roster, free health benefits, permanent room.
Cons
No set career paths, no chance of advancement, extreme bias concerning who received training and/or promotion, untrustworthy supervisors and managers.

I really enjoyed working at Newmont. And I would work there again at any time. I was guided through every new task and felt comfortable to ask for assistance if needed. I also had the confidence to suggest and implement procedures.
Pros
Coffee is great and parking is in the building

Newmont warehouse , great people to work with , support from peers and supervision . Team effort to keep up the work at times very busy and some heavy lifting .Laydown areas all over site which makes for a sometimes double up of work tracking back and forward.
All in though the crew at the main warehouse are a combination of can do and we done it already . Efficiency plus
Pros
Great people and great roster

Enjoyable place to work with a lot of great people. Work is tough at times but the people make it worth while. A typical day at work starts with daily pre starts and meeting. The trucks start to come in and it's game on with front counter and escorting also to be done.

Working full time with 5-2, 5-4 rosters day shift only, I have learned a lot of good things working as a team and dealing with many departments at Newmont Boddington Gold mine such as managing people working as Newmont's contractor for ground support, coaching and mentoring graduates, working with some geotechnical consultants, dealing with heavy equipment operators and supervisors of open pit operations.
Pros
established world class mining, good facilities, close to Perth (only about one and a half hours driving)
Cons
Local school is only good for up to year 8.

Worked at 3 different Newmont projects in the last 7 years, having this opportunities is a boon for me and a credit to the company itself for maintaining sustainable minesites.
Pros
Ideal work / lifestyle balance
Cons
Some sites were quite remote but compensated for though.
