Safety
All Round Operator/ leading hand (Former Employee) –  Western Australia28 April 2017
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...

Fifo work
Operator All Rounder (Former Employee) –  Nullagine WA24 March 2017
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

Good team to work for but unfortunately gold price and cost of production made a lot of personnel redundant, myself included.
Drill and Blast Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Mount Magnet Gold Mine West Australia29 November 2013
Early starts 0500 daily prestart meet, job allocation and planning of blasting and drilling with close liaison with the clients engineers. Mentoring of the blast crews for safe operation of explosives and use of, assist drill operators for any issues with pattern changes or ground conditions (hard rock)
Respect the crews and their attitudes when the pressure is on with heat and conditions.
Train and allocate jobs and machinery that the operators are experienced with and I encourage drill training for the personnel that show interest in multi skills.
Challenges with multi cultural communications but I have patience and make diagrams so as to explain completely and we all go home happy after a lot of destruction in the pits.
Pros
Good professional team
Cons
all good

Good team spirit
Construction Site Manager (Former Employee) –  Adelaide.15 July 2013
Work consisted essentially of looking after all civil works. Site management, co-coordinating a safe interface with construction and the public was at times challenging.
Co-workers were accepting and great to work with.
Interfacing with the public on a active airport was the greatest challenge.
Flying into Adelaide airport and seeing the project finished and looking world class.
Pros
workig hours and team spirit.
