Great guys to work with. Bosses ok.

Good culture. Different cultures from various countries. all work well together as we all want the same thing at the end of the day. Just want to get paid. Some lazy guys who pretend they are good get recognized for the wrong reason when some excellent guys should be given the opportunity for advancement. Some dead wood about need to move on.

Good rather for nothing

Good company a bit to hold your breath once you don't have a site assignment for your bills & debits it not enough to pay any of your financial needs & you need to be top to the leading hand & supervisor to impress them because favoritism is still in there, normal, always be patient at the workplace, management is good, more safety if needed, the hardest part of the job is intimidation by the acting leading hand, away from the person in the shop who is can do intimidation

Pros

No comment

A company that does pipework and structureal work.

Had a variety of different tasks to perform. Learned a lot about using different software packages and learned a lot about sticking to procedures. Had the opportunity to work on a large defense project, which was both interesting and challenging.

Pros

Worked with good workmates

Cons

Sometimes a thankless organisation.

Great camp facilities

A typical day in Roma consisted of assisting electrical and mechanical trades with parts, supplies and tooling. Forklift and Telehandler operation and communicating with management. During my time there I learnt a lot about the parts and tools required for certain tasks and the process of construction and operation. The most enjoyable part was the camaraderie between the co-workers and the satisfaction of being the first point of contact of management for my knowledge. The hardest part was having to deal with the lack of communication down the ranks of management, supervisors, leading hands and workers.

Pros

Great hourly rate, penalties and working conditions

Cons

Lack of cell phone coverage

Production Summary

Started with prestart and complete jha and required work permits before starting the job. I learned to comply strictly with safety requirements and company rules and regulations, standards and management view of interest to on time schedule of completion and duty care to all workers. Intimate relation to all co workers to established good teamwork which need full attention to create productive quality performance. The hardest part of the job assumes in weather conditions during hot weather because of heat stress. Working is more enjoyable if you perform the job efficiently in a right manner and commensurate wages.

A variety of new skills learnt on the job. example spray painting structural steel.

A typical day on the mining site involved different jobs that included insulation, pipe lagging, e.w.p work, spray painting and sandblasting. I learnt to work in a team environment which also involved good management and co-workers. I enjoyed working physically hard with the different jobs given to me. I would also seek advice from management when need be. I enjoyed every aspect of the jobs presented to be and was keen to take on new roles. Most enjoyable is working for my future.

Pros

meet new people, learn need skills in the mining industry

Cons

the end of a project date.
