Traffic Controller (Former Employee) –  Tom Price WA5 September 2017
Get up early in and get ready for work 3:30am - 4:00am
Get your lunch and have breakfast and head out to your bus with your work mates. Get to work and have your PSI Meetings every morning before work, so you would know what was going on for that day.
Pros
good mates
Cons
long hours

Process driven company that strives to eliminate waste.
Maintenance Administrator (Former Employee) –  Roy Hill WA28 December 2016
NRW has lots of systems and processes designed to eliminate waste and reduce costs, attributes that appealed to me. If you can deliver projects in a timely and cost effective manner you are an attractive business to investors.
Pros
Good rewards.

A long work History with NRW
Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Nammuldi2 December 2015
First starting in 2005 on an old Bell 40 Moxy, and over the years, went from Mining to Civil. Many trucks later, I ended back on a Loader at Cape Lambert. It's been a good learning curve, watching people on all machines and seeing what and why they do certain things. Helps you learn a lot when operating these machines. That's what I love about civil works, you can always learn things.
Pros
4 and 1
Cons
Only allowed to do 4 and 1

meeting deadlines, completed work
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Welshpool, WA9 September 2015
working as a sub contactor to BHP was very demanding, their safe work practises were the most stringent l had ever work with, after 3 years working for BHP you learnt how important it was to work in a safe work environment , and the importance of looking after your fellow workers.
The hardest part of the job was to make sure the operators had signed onto the J.S.A, and doing their take 5's and their machine prestarts. and that they understood the scope of works.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with competent operators, and the interaction with other work groups working on the same project, my experience has taught me that a happy crew is a safe crew.
Pros
interesting people
Cons
being away from the family (3 weeks)

Absolutely no opportunities for advancement unless your a friend of those in management

Talk about safety but put money first (costs to implement)
