Working hours are long and there is no time left for the family. If you are new to the company or project it is difficult to communicate because they Work in the company for a long time and they have a network.

It's a good place to start out as a trainee, however after a few months they start to show their true side.
The company itself was good to work for, the on site people and culture is far from anything but nice.

Safety is put aside and viewed as production first, hear it constantly. management on site really need to start thinking with peopl about what's on the cards.

There was a push for greater individual accountability that I felt I was a big part of.
The group plant manager was a great believer of team spirit.

All of the group Plant personnel assisted any time an issue arose

I worked in this office within a busy team, job is assigned to each member of the team, who will resolve the issues and procure materials and services on time right time. All supports are provided by the highly professional management. Ad-hoc situations are handled in purchasing. This job was based on mining equipment related therefore high value purchasing involved.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the get together of staff members once a while for special occasions, birthday celebrations every month in the office.

I observed and learned how to work in a busy environment.
Pros
Supportive staff and managment, fun place to work
Cons
Transportation to and fro this place was a little issue for me.

a typical day at work starts with a quick risk assessment and group job allocation & tasks, I felt every day I was learning new things as the job changed from day to day, management were nearly always involved when overlooking the job, the attitude of my fellow work mates was generally good as we did have a good working culture in and out of work due to the job being FIFO and being away from home, but over all the most enjoyable part was obviously being paid well and having some training provided and sometimes opportunities to be promoted with in the company
