Pretty bad, but not the worst

Good money. Coworkers are ok, if you like to work you’re in luck, you’ll get to do everything everyone else doesn’t want to do. Culture is toxic. Management are focused on their own promotions and accolades. Safety is swept under the rug if it’s going to take more than half a day to fix. Room for promotion since the turnover is massive. I’d go back.

Pros

Money and benefits

Cons

Management and culture

A good and friendly environment looking out for your team mates

Family & Friendly work place as well as productive. The new upgrade that is about to be commissioned is state of high class technology. Management always talking about safety on the job.If the job is unsafe stop the job. Co workers are always there to give you a hand if required The hot weather and fly's can be challenging but you get use to it. The beach across the camp a beautiful sight.

Pros

Production targets met we have bbqs

Cons

long days of 12 hrs

Good safety culture, career path promoted.

My daily tasks were inspection, maintenance, and repair of fixed plant equipment and that covered, conveyor systems, crushing, mills, screens (wet and dry), chutes, reclaiming, stacking, and train loading. the work involved shutdowns team supervision, and critical plant equipment changeout. I had to utilize my skills in diagnosis/ fault finding, rebuilds (gearboxes etc.) to installation and line-ups. my skill set also involved being computer literate in; S.A.P, Mimms, Ellipse, Linkone, and proficient in Microsoft. I enjoyed working in a team or Autonomously.

Pros

Job Variaty, work balance

Cons

Remote Location

workig on diffrent equipment

learning about new equipment and fault finding skills . working with a large crew of maintainers with different ideas and skills. the roster is ok ( 4 on 4 off 4 on 2 off ) but having to travel such long distance is a disadvantage . I have taken the role as a apprentice trainer( hands on) for pump rebuilds etc

Pros
