Wide array of clerical and administrative duties for FIFO and residential teams. Extremely varied tasks - travel, PPE, HSE involvement, reporting, etc
I learned what teamwork really is
Management is great, with a progressive attitude
Workplace culture is professional yet casual and inclusive
Hardest part of the job was probably trying to juggle so many tasks that related to people on rotating rosters. Required good use of personal notes and a sharp memory
Most enjoyable part was the camaraderie
Great place to expand skills and get paid well to do it

Not a good company to work for. Even worse if you're a female. The culture in some areas is the worst I have ever endured. Don't get me wrong, there are some great people there but there are far too many 'old school boys' still there who are more in 'protect their job' mode than want to do the right thing. HR will listen but does nothing.
If you want to do the right thing and wanted to be treated fairly, this is not the company for you. Some of the behaviours I have seen towards colleagues is disgraceful. Persistent bullying and discrimination. If someone wants to go after you, they can all will only stop when you leave.
Good pre work information and job descriptions. Information was always available from supervisors and work colleagues. Rio allowed me to advance my career with training and job opportunities. Workplace culture changed with sites and experience. Hardest part of the job was due to isolation of sites and availability of equipment. Most enjoyable was the opportunity and challenges.
The challenges of driving a major project through an EPCM proved frustrating, with a lack of accountability across the project causing frustrations and a lack of job satisfaction.
The root of the problem lay within the EPCM management team coupled with a soft RTIO management approach.
Be ready for the challenges that exist in any large organization. Very driven organization to succeed and include diversity with people. Great personal development opportunities and you'll work with some of the best and brightest in the mining industry. A great place to learn and grow as a result.
Great perks. Allowances health care, employee share scheme, bonus
Can be politically challenging with more senior roles
productive good training safety first good working gang get well looked after meet good friends good roster working near the beach if you have any problems you can sit down supervise and talk it out super is very good
This adminstration role supported Managers in offices throughout the world, by raising purchase orders and liason with the Managers to supply project related needs; budget costs / orders / process invoices and credits.
Poor culture, jobs for the boys, inexperienced people in leadership roles. Massive turn over of good staff due to the above. Care factor zero. Other similar companies pay better with higher level of care and benefits.
Excessively bad culture in view of trainers not being thought of highly enough and there overall opinions not being taken notice of. Candidates beung pushed through at an irresponsible pace and pushing safety aside.
Started with pre shift meeting ,What your role was for the shift,When i started at silvergrass management was awesome ,The management was changed and thing when down hill.
People will do anything to get ahead because of lack of self conference
Playing the blame game
