We had a an excellent team leader who was respected by all who worked under him. The safety culture was one of the best I have experienced.
Pre-starts were informative, we knew what was planned for the day. On the job training was provided and assessed by written review.

A great place to improve your skills.

They promote safe work place. But I do believe that they push their machines beyond the means and put it on the operator when they break down 30000+ hrs old should not be hauling above 100 tonnes unless the roads where immaculate...

Good group of blokes to work with. Doing fifo work you have no life outside of work! Work 1 week of 12 hour days and then the following week of 12 hour nights, then fly back East for a week. But in actual fact you loose a day each way when travelling so you really only get 3 Days rest which goes way way way to fast!
Pros
Good Money
Cons
Have to live in the middle of no where away from friends and family

Enjoyed the opportunity very much. This was a very short term role that I completed very quickly that enabled management to amend their HR process and documentation.
